Insurance Hike!

Post by surfblue63 »

Just got a renewal quote for my Innocenti Mini Minor Mk3. How do they justify a 50% increase in premium for a policy that has not changed?

Looks like Lancaster Insurance will have lost another customer by the time I have shopped around for another quote.

I use heritage insurance and pay less than that to cover both my 1962 850 and 1968 cooper,

think it was about £160 for the two.

that is with the usual full Europe breakdown and legal cover included

worth calling them

Seems to be Lancaster's way - they did this to me last year on the GTm and then having called them it ended up about £5 more than the previous year.

Footman James seem to do the same thing - up your premium and see if you complain

All insurance renewals are the same especially with auto renewal! Beware.

Why? If they can not offer you the best deal straight away why bother with them, they are lazy and I will not use them again.

Plenty of other providers

For what ever it's worth, generally across Aust, Car Insurances have gone down during the pandemic as they took on board that a good many people were working from home and socialising was pretty much wiped out, our roads, until about 6 weeks ago were empty.
