Hi Tom, has yours gone up by much at all this year?
Strangely enough Alec my actual premium went down.
Every year at renewal time my broker sends me a letter stating; Your insurance expires on xx.xx.xx, please remit £X for the continuation of your insurance policy.
This year, as last year, the letter said, "Your existing insurers require a premium of £X, but we have secured another quote of £X minus from another company."
The actual numbers were around £1150, reduced to £960.
My old Mum didn't raise any fools, I went for the £960.
£960 for fully comprehensive insurance on a working London black cab, insured and spouse only driving, (she'll go to Tesco in the cab if I block her car in, she says other drivers treat her with more respect when she's at the wheel that as opposed to her Fiat), seems a pretty good deal to me.
