Hi there, not sure if this is of any use to anyone as I have not read all the posts on this subject but have just insured with SAGA (yes I know it's for old people) at £260 fully comp with for my 986 I am more than happy.

For glass replacement, most - if not all - of the inscos listed will want to steer you towards their own preferred supplier. Have had a few Admiral-insured enquiries and it is only when the policyholder tries to nominate his or her own preferred supplier, things get a bit awkward.

Hi all,

I'll be making my first foray into Porsche ownership later this year. The change will come after my next insurance renewal though, so can anyone recommend an insurer who will cover a diesel A3 now, then switch to a Boxster without stiffing me with a huge "admin fee" or leave me with a sky high premium for 10 months. I'm 40 with 9+ years NCB if it helps.

I see their policy clause specifically mentions the Nurburgring wink

I had better quotes from confused than with Mayfair

You have Adrian Flux in the list, is that an error?

Ben at MWA was thousands less than them, A Plan weren't much better at £1600 for me.

Hardly a high risk either, 35/no points/no convictions/garaged/restricted mileage/10k car/5 yrs no claims due to living abroad.
I take this back! MWA now R K Harrison have sent me a renewal at £1020!

Last year £11,000 Boxster insured for £820. I asked them to lower the value as it has not been changed for 3 years. Apparently it makes no difference, some rubbish about adjusting the mileage schedule as I drive on 5000 limited miles.

So my yearly insurance company change continues. £866 on go compared even and some of these companies claim to be specialists, joke.

Do they not value continued business or is trying to rob your current customer base just the norm?

I'm having trouble finding many insurers that will quote on a '11 Boxster S because my girlfriend is under 25 - any ideas which are best to approach in this case?

I have just insured my new 5 year old 911 with Porsche Insurance who were the cheapest. Fully comp with 2 drivers, £439 with tracker, £460 without tracker. Tel 0845 600 6502 They don't have a website. They are part of March Ltd and the insurance itself was underwritten by Aviva.I used them in the past for my Boxster and always found them helpful to deal with - in particular when I has my car vandalised and had to get it fixed through insurance.

Highly Recommend!

Hmm. Just went through the rounds of several of the 'specialists' listed here. 55, IAM/RoSPA, full protected NCB, clean license, rural Scotland. Waste of time - anything up to £1400 fully comp for my 997.2 C2S. Ended up renewing with Admiral multicar for £790 for the 997 and our remapped X5. The IAM's own insurance has turned into a complete joke in recent years, BTW - if you don't run a beige Volvo with built-in sheepskin slippers, they won't touch it.

Trying to get temp insurance cover for my 993 which I was going to ship to UK for two months. Can't get cover with any of the big names here, underwritten by UK underwriters. Also tried a few UK companies and they will not insure it either. Anyone had any luck doing the same?

Great list but does anyone have any recommendations for insurers that will cover an older 911 (1988) under a limited mileage classic policy (2nd car an no NCB)

Not for me I hasten to add just in case dewy or domster start thinking I've finally moved over from the dark side wink

It seems that all of the usual suspects for cherished or classic insurance got utterly slam dunked by SAGA on a normal policy with mirrored NCB ...... I was amazed

How do you guys get insured without a no-claim bonus. I am 29, living in London, park on the street, drive 6k miles and for a 997 valued at 25k, the best quote I can get is 1600, but with a 3000 excess. All the other quotes with more reasonable excess (500-700) come north of 3500

BTW. I do not have a no-claim bonus, not because I had accidents or previous claims, but because I never had a car insured in the UK. They won't accept my driving record abroad, because I was not the main policy holder...

Having no no claims puts you at a disadvantage because you have no driving record. you could be good, but also crap at driving.
Not having been in the UK for long could make you easy come easy go, meaning that you might not have a long term commitment to the UK, meaning you aren't bothered with your NCD, meaning this could affect your driving style, or claims that you might make, hence the high excess.
London postcodes are notouriously high, and being a street parked car puts it at risk of being damaged by other cars who do not stop to leave details.
Just for your info, i'm 37 London postcode(but one of the lower risk ones) with max NCD, 4th year of 911 ownership,getting quotes this year of £800.
It will drop once you have some history.
Adding a second driver with some history(even if they very rarely drive the car) could cause the quote to reduce

Thanks Tino

It seems that I will have to bite the bullet and pay 3k this year. Went with Aviva at the end (700 excess, EU cover, breakdown cover, etc), rather than some Irish insurer that is half the price but with a 3k excess which is charged regardless if it is your or 3rd party's fault (allegedly, you can recover the money, but good luck with that).

Here's an interesting one. It would appear to be cheaper to insure my 993 Turbo for use on the road than for laying it up in the garage!
Anyone know of good insurance deal for when my car Wintered off road in the garage?
