Dodgy Insurers


Wanted to write about my recent experiences with UK insurers and hopefully save you any hassles in the future.

Situation: 35 year old male with clean licence (australian) and history of driving performance cars. 2nd driver female 40 clean licence. 1 theft in last 3 years. 2001 Porsche Boxster insured for 10K.

Directline - over the net : 550.00 rough quote - expect 600
Admiral 2 car policy (for wifeys BMW) - 675.00 (porsche only)
Post Office - 680.00
Swinton brokers through AVIVA - 700.00
Heritage - no quote need full UK licence for min 3 yeras

and now the crooks:
Allan and Allan prestige car insurance - 876.00 !

When questioned about the difference they said it was through AVIVA. I then called bull**************** and explained I was quoted 700 from the very same company via Swinton.. their excuse was because I have an international licence.

I know this is bull**************** because Im currently on my wifes BMW policy and my MINI policy and in the case of Admiral - BMW - its only 50.

So it pays to write down all the quotes and get the background because there are some dodgy pricks masquerading as porsche friendly. I was told Allan and Allan are the porsche club UK's preferred insurer by Call Connect. I dont know if it is true but if this is the case I highly recommend all personnel insured by or through Allan and Allan check their details and spend 20 minutes online comparing. You could well be getting ripped off.
