how much value does being a cat D take off a car value? eg. a fiat 500 that would otherwise cost £3500 - how much less would it be worth if a cat D car?

BattleBeast1

Nothing will show if the car has been repaired or it has been fixed without going through the insurance,still very easy to buy a badly damaged car that has been fixed by the insurance.

I've used this trick for years but it only seems to work on the desktop site. Also even when vehicles are written off they aren't always recorded, had this happen with one of mine, and if you look on eBay there are companies that proudly advertise they sell unrecorded write-offs.

I don't know, you can compare specs (has AC electric and heated wing mirrors, 6 airbags inc curtain, NCAP 4, no usb on stereo but CD can play mp3s, PAS, ABS, traction control) I think fords are more expensive than I thought they would be and the specs on Fords vary quite a bit, you can get some quite high spec fiesta's. Suzuki's have really good realiability, another one to look at is the Honda Jazz, yes old people drive them but again reliable. The Vauxhall Agila is the same car as the splash.

I was with them 2 years ago and I wondering if they would consider me as new customer?

dave80

I had Aviva for about £450 for the year, then they wanted something like £1200 for renewal! That's with me scoring highly on their 'Aviva Drive' app. I had also moved to an area which every insurer gives significantly lower quotes for (I assume because it's considered a lower crime area), had 4 years no claims, no points and I've passed my IAM advanced test. If they had just crept it up by a few quid I might have stayed but that's just ridiculous. Obviously I went elsewhere (< £400 from LV).

matwalaboy

I tried Aviva quotes and it was expensive, so had to go with Admiral - who were still expensive for my liking, but better than Aviva. Didn't know of the DriverApp through Aviva, will give that a go closer to renewal to see what it quotes me this time around.

Brightsideoflife

Thank you for getting back, really interesting. On the subject of quidco, presumably you couldn't go through quidco and get the driver app discount as well? I joined aviva a few months back so should give this a go ready for renewal. Wife's insurance is up for renewal so will mention all this to her. Thanks again.

vicstar115

You don’t have to be a customer to have it :) just download it and you have to record 200 miles before you get a score. Best to put your phone in an old fashioned car phone holder as the more stable the phone is the more accurate your driving results will be. I managed to do mine in a week, but that was 120 miles to Hastings and back. Once you’ve done the test your score is valid for one year, so you could even do it 11 months before your renewal. Very easy to use and got my quote instantly. I found I lost stars on one journey I did because I drove in a straight line (stars are given for speed, braking, corners and overall driving) so a little annoyed I lost points for that. If you do the test before buying you just give them your score and they’ll apply it to your quote and give you the discount :)

I know car insurance premium depends on a lot of factor like number of year on no claim, the post code, job you do etc - but I never seem to be able to get a quote of any less than 600 or so - have 4 years NCB and held a license with no blemishes for a similar duration as well - wonder when would I get to paying the sub 500 insurance premiums :(

Aviva send renewal price every year, its always more than a new customer quote on their site. For last 3 years i have let my insurance run out for a day, then get the new customer quote AND Topcashback! Never had an issue.

mattr

Yes they were very good a couple of years back, the premium wasn't too bad, but the excess way too high - just ran a quote and they want compulsory excess of £500 + £350...

gslgregory

I got a quote two weeks ago from Aviva, then found a £65 cash back offer so resubmitted details - only to find the quote had gone up by more than £65. It seems that the price is always inflated by more than the cash back so you'd be better off getting a direct quote and forgetting TCB/Quidco.

Sawb

Plus do it weeks before yours expires, if you need the insurance fairly soon the gits will charge you more.

Not for me on home insurance. Tried this at weekend - went direct first, cleared all cookies and then through TCB and quotes were exactly the same. Aviva quote was OK, but I think they wouldn't allow me to have different excessess for buildings and contents

billyboyjones

The free legal advice is worth a bomb!! Whether you use it or not.

Oneday77

third party cover is to payout for any damage or injury’s you may cause to a third party. However it does not cover you for claiming costs for loss, time off etc from a third party. Insurers deliberately make it awkward to claim against them and try to limit what they think you can get. Like all legal matters. A solicitor would help you get the best result for you.

dave80

Can somebody explain to me any kind of scenario where this motor legal protection would be useful to have? As we all have to have third party cover by law, when would it actually be used?

jumpinoffthbed

5 years is the most you'll get a discount for anyway. He's saved 500 quid by not protecting and if he's over 30 he should be able to find a reasonable quote. 2 accidents in a year is unlucky but he won't be much worse off.

Burgmeister

We use Driver Guardian. It uses DAS which is the same policy that my car insurers wanted £30+ quid for. I now pay £20 (for 2 people) and it covers 3 cars and a motorbike. Have also used Driver Guardian for their breakdown cover (which covers EU) for when we took one of our cars to France. For the person saying they couldn't find the policy details its here https://www.driverguardian.co.uk/docs/12040_Driver_Guardian_DASDrive_Ultimate_Wording_Feb16.pdf Not that diffcult to find (clicking on the "Policy Wording" button did the trick for me)

Motor legal expenses is a pointless add on for most. Some seem to think it covers them for fault accidents and associated legal costs - this is what your car insurance is for. Car insurance covers others' claims against you first and foremost, this is what the bare legal minimum third party cover is. In cases where you're not at fault the other side's insurer will pay for your repairs, hire and injury. If you appoint no win no fee solicitors this should speed the process along as insurers don't want to incur the extra costs of going to court if their customer is clearly at fault. If it's a split liability or 50/50 many motor legal expenses policies have a stipulation they won't cover these costs if chances of success are not more than 50%. So all in all it's £30 for nothing you can't get from speaking to a few daytime TV advertising solicitors, who will act for you for free.

No you still get your cooling off period, you don't pay an admin fee just the days insurance you've used... However.... If you have a crash and claim, you're liable for the years worth of insurance...

humadoon

Why Is this hot?

Lexeus

Thinking about it again now, what I am referring to may only be relevant for the 14day cooling off period following an automatic renewal direct debit payment on an annual policy that you have already had for 12 months, in that situation you are entitled to cancel your policy retrospectively during the 14day cooling off period.

writergirl74

Ethical/legal or not, I'm not sure you could buy insurance for someone else's car and then cancel the policy? Cuvva is aimed at people needing to be temporarily insured on someone else's car which is already insured by the owner/driver.

ScroopEgerton

Why would you be allowed a cooling off period then, if by cancelling it you'd have been retrospectively breaking the law by using the car in those first 2 weeks? Are we not to drive in that 14 day period? Nah, not illegal, just a bit of a faff to get a few days 'free' cover.

You can still get cashback as a new car insurance customer. :{ I have had both car and house insurance cashback from Quidco/TCB.

Cashback with Aviva much better than direct line. Really easy and paid within a month. Were the cheapest for my car by a significant distance!

humadoon

Don't they do a credit check every time you take a quote?

whatyadoinsucka

How it works: Commission is paid for getting customers directed to websites and/or make purchases. if quidco offer 5% then they will earn say 8% and pocket the difference, you really think cashback sites are doing it for customers? google make pennies every time you use their search to go to a webpage, just remember with these cashback deals it may be cheaper to go direct to the site rather than via a cashback site Last week we just took out pet insurance £5.60 a month, for the same policy via quidco it was £6.70 a month with £35 cashback

BrocMudflap

DVLA use old tape backup technology to update their databases. This is a very time consuming process. Bit of a waste of time really offering this as a 'service' as any information it gives you is probably outdated.

plebbygiraffe

Whilst you are physically able to enter any registration you like the site clearly tells you that it is for checking your own car and if you want details on someone else's car to use a different service, in addition the tick box is to confirm as much and to use it for other reasons is breaking the DPA.

plebbygiraffe

This service is for checking your own details only, you cannot use it to check other cars.

AndyRoyd

Again, the mention of "drive another (insured) car under third party cover" relies on the seller having legitimate insurance, which the database and potential buyer has no way of checking. The buyer simply needs to sort their own (temporary) insurance.

Funnily enough i left Admiral after years of being with them for the same reason... They wanted to know the ins and outs of my speed awareness course which i had no info on...let alone remember the date i took it! Also admiral want to know about every conceivable optional extra on the car even though they are all factory fitted. Axa said aslong as factory fitted then its fine. Its a minefield

WBRacing

Glad to hear your claim went smoothly, I'll wager you didn't suffer a total loss and be stranded with your family somewhere remote with the guy on the phone saying "that's your problem" otherwise you'd likely be saying something very different, based on my experience. They are the only insurer I know of who load up the premium after a SAC which is against the guidelines that say it should have no impact and shouldn't need to tell the insurers. It gives a little insight into Admiral and their underhanded practices.

Shino

I had been with Admiral for 4 years and had no problems with 1 non-fault claim. I went with Axa after Admiral tried to charge me a ridiculous renewal price. I told them about a speed awareness course and Admirals premium went up even more! Confirmed with Axa if the price increases if you've taken a course and they didn't care about it which was a bonus. Also £40.25 topcashback with Axa :)

WBRacing

Forgot to add to my description that Admiral also lied to me repeatedly, confirmed by the policeman handling the hit and run case. Rant over...

lollypoplee

​make sure you call them every few days. i called them once and they said "oh! good job you called as we have an email sent from the third parties insurance that was marked urgent" i asked when it was sent to them snd she replied "3 days ago" !!! honestly if i hadn't have called them every few days i swear it still wouldn't be sorted now. and another thing, they swore they sent ne 4 letters but i never received 1 ? they checked my address every time but still no letters ? big liars in my opinion ? and because i didn't receive any letters from them i almost lost my personalised registration plate my late farther brought for me due to them written my car off and giving me 10 days to confirm in writing i wanted to keep the plate. as soon as my vehicle was written off and i was payed out, by law my playe belonged to my insurance company ? so i had to get a letter from them along with an engineers report that they had no interest in tge plate ? needed to forward these to the DVLA. as there was a deadline after the car was written off i almost lost it due to their incompetence !! i had the brains luckily to tell them to email me the documents, but believe it or not, even then they messed up and missed my registration number from the form ! complete waste of time idiots honestly.

That is only partly true I would say, Admirals whole setup is shambolic due to each department being run by a different company (subcontracted out). When my other half was involved in a non-fault accident Direct Line payed out in under 14days and for more money than was our "hoped for" amount. We were ready for a fight there but thankfully didn't have to have one. They certainly weren't perfect in their handling, but they were still in a different league to Admiral. That is what I meant by doing research on it, Direct Line have a reputation for paying out a fair amount. I haven't even mentioned the fact that Admiral "accidentally" cancelled the policy covering the replacement car that I had bought, so for 2 weeks I was uninsured until I got the letter telling me that they had cancelled the policy. That was one of the 43 phone calls I had to make to them. In my experience Admiral were dishonest (as stated by the police!) and utterly, utterly incompetent.

Interesting .................

dave80

It's the same for every company. There are always people with good experiences and some others with bad experiences. The people who have bad experiences are always the most vocal too. I left Admiral when they put up my premiums by about 50% for no reason at all. Switched to Aviva instead, who I'm sure have some terrible reviews too.

If you ever have the misfortune to make a claim through this truly abysmal excuse of an insurance company you will lose a lot more than you save with this deal. My car was hit and eventually written off by a drunk driver whilst parked up. I could detail you a dozen plus failings but the big ones where: 1) They lied to me about being able to persue the claim (it took the police to tell me that they were lying). 2) They "forgot" about the claim twice, wasting two of the nine months it took to resolve the claim. They took 3months to decide to write it off and thus start paying out. Imagine if it was your only car involved. They wouldn't get me a hire car and said that as the other insurer might not pay out that if I hire one it would be at my own financial risk. It took 7 months for them to get round to contacting the other parties insurer to resolve what was a relatively simple claim. 3) I had to phone them 43 times over 9 months to push the claim through to conclusion. 4) Even after fighting and formal complaints and appeals, they paid out 18% less than the very cheapest equivalent car on autotrader which was older, higher mileage and lesser spec. The stress, upset and anger still burns me up now, Trust me, this saving is not worth the pain should you ever need to claim. They subcontract every department out unlike other companies and are honestly farcical in their handling. Don't just take my word for it, google them. They have form for making lousy payouts whereas other "direct" companies have equal form for paying out sensibly so not all insurers are the same. Please, do your research.
