Just got my renewal notice, except it wasn’t, present Company (Flow an offshoot of LV) said that unfortunately they couldn’t give me a renewal price.

So the usual rigmarole of getting new quotes. They ranged from £867 to £2,367.

I live in a quiet rural village in Scotland. This is crazy.

It’s not much of an option to sell the car and get a smaller less costlier car due to the horrific depreciation on a low mileage 1 year old car.

Any one else experiencing this?

Mine went up over 45% to £440 so I was moaning! I live in Central Southern England where one would assume that costs were higher. Big price increases come with parking on the road, specific age groups, limited or zero no-claims discount and penalty points. I would like to be 22 but none of the negatives apply to me.

I renewed with Flow. Up 55% to £550, couldn't get anything lower. Claim free, Yorkshire village parked on drive. EV cars expensive to fix and not getting any younger (74). Looks like were chipping-in for all the missing Land Rovers.

ours for some reason has nearly trippled to £1872 from £650...tried all with only cheapest so far is Admiral (with telematic box) - around £1000
Feel like complete rip off as last full year was £650 with Direct Line
Any suggestions which other insurance provider to try?

Mines due 17th March, will report back but probably not helpful as insurance is so individual, not sure you learn much from others quotes.

Mines due in Apr can't wait to fund the stolen land rovers.

Well I just paid (nose is still bleeding), £565, 20% up on last year. I did add a couple of extras such as protecting no-claims, first time for years but on balance I think it is worth it with premiums so high. I also upgraded the terms of a courtesy car, they are no longer simple. Given I had crazy prices thrown at me, £1,100 from Aviva and a joke one of £1,400 from Direct Line I suppose I can't complain much but it took a lot of effort so keep going is my advice.

One little anecdote. The first price I got from LV was well over £600 until I checked all the relevant facts that I filled in on-line. Good job I did as it had some how mangled how long both myself and my wife have had a licence. It defaulted to 2019, changed it and saved a considerable amount.
