    Mondeo is due for renewal and the renewal is £701 (which is the cheapest trust me I checked)

    So we have 6years no claims bonus, she had her licence 6 years I had mine 7. Not that high risk of an area....


    Fair enough if I was insuring a scooby.....but is a bloody mondeo for Christ sake!!

    Ahhhh its such a bloody rip
    Off, I was paying these sort
    Of prices when I was 17.

    These prices bet drop right down when I'm 25 I tell ya....maybe I should swap the car for a micro haha

    My golf turbo went from 330£ to just under £700.

    Nothing changed on the car. No Points. Nothing!

    Told them to stick it lol. I checked round and i was getting quoted between £600-£700

    In the end i sold it :(

    My van fully covered (bolted in tank) Is only £500! With loads of extras (wfp van if mine gets stolen etc)

    Golfs are the one of the most expensive to insure lol, sounds like you got lucky with the cheaper quote you had for a year.

    It's so annoying I hate it, can't wait to get away from the insurance industry and crack on with more glass lol

    Some people think £350 is a lot to insure a car but thats cheap!
