Last year, my MY15 Turbo cost £350 to insure. This year's quote £475.
However, have now changed to MY20 GTS. Best quote £600. Porsche wanted £1375

Guess I'm paying the London tax, I was quite happy with £900, less than my S3 was! That was over £1k!

Churchill and Direct Line refuse to provide a quote... any one else I can try?

My S3 was with Aviva, big increase in January, used Go Compare and reduced excess by £250 as Go Compare give you this amount free, great quote from Quote me happy, ironic that they are owed by Aviva, when I changed to the Macan increase was only £28. Still a lot less than original Aviva renewal price for S3.

I have protected NCD but only 6 years NCB

Obviously mileage , use etc influences price but worth a try.

I did try Go Compare and that came to £1.6k lol. Again any of the quote were from insurance brands I've never heard of. I will try again, though.

I wonder if there have been a run of thefts in my area recently - we are near Hampstead / Golders Green etc where theres lots of expensive cars that I'm sure get targeted. So the big names are just refusing to insure the area...

My cousin insured a Cossie Sierra with them in the late 80s, premium was £2k; he called and complained so they halved it!

The agent is a friend who probably knew he always drove like a pensioner.

I live in a small hamlet in a rural area, yet invariarably NFU give me the highest (like for like) quote. This year it was well into four figures!

Yes, like you Steve I'm rural and until a year ago NFU had been excellent but they massively hiked the renewal on the 911 and insisted on a tracker so I ditched them. Strangely, this year, their quote for the Defender was competitive so I'm back with them. Also, they were OK with the full PPF I'd added, unlike Aviva who declined to renew because of it. Even stranger, had I bought the Carpathian version of the V8, which comes with full PPF as standard, they would have insured it! The world of insurance is strange indeed.

I recently had my car premium increased by 80% and my motorbike doubled even though I have full NCD on both, plus 20+ years of full licence and only wanted 3rd party on the bike…..but I do live in London

Admiral multi policy combined with home insurance was very good!
