Well!! three replys. maybe we are the only ones insured at the mo. ??

Try http://www.confused.com or one of the other online quoters and see what comes up. at least it would give you a bargaining point with a specialist insurer. :good:

Your right Phil, it is a poor response but hey, at least you got a response ;)

I agree with Keith, use the likes of confused etc to bargain with the specialists. You'd be amazed what they will do with a threat of you going somewhere else :good:

Ok,OK,

But it hardly matters. Mine was 40lira maltese, so i guess that is irrelevant....Shall i give it in euros for this july? :grin:

Seriously,for a short while, are your tpft because it is soft top? Mine wouldnot insure more than 3rd party because of soft tops(apparently whole island-a friend has a 1973 e-type jag convertible,also only got third party!)

Hi Charles.
Here in the UK, I believe most of us insure fully comp with no problems, personaly for myself its no cheaper to insure TPFT. even when I had a Full hard top fitted it made no difference to the premium.

When it was New in 1991 I had to pay very a high premium £420 even with a full no-claims bonus, It was considered as an Imported Vehicle and not many run of the mill High Street insurance companies would insure it, hence it was a case of specialist insurers only. Now 17 years done the time-line its as cheap as chips.

Dangerfield (charles) lives on the island of Malta Phil, they have different insurance policies to the UK. obviously a softtop vehicle must be considered more of a loss risk over there. Hence no Fully Comp.
