    Just got my renewal

    Last year £362

    hold on to your hats/bonnets ...

    £908.99

    that is unreal, im 42, 18 years NCD & its got a cat 1 alarm/immob & on a private drive way & i do under 2,000 a year

    i live in a vey quite village in a cul-de-sac but this year next doors mrs reversed into a car & another bloke smashed into another muppet at the other end of the road whilst visiting his mum

    would they casue it to go up that much as normally it would be 50% more not 250% more

    They're hoping that you just take the easy way out & re-insure without ringing around for other quotes .... a lot do. I suppose it only takes a few to do that & they're quids in!

    I'm a little older, but have 3 cars insured for a few quid less than that ;)

    Other people's claims should not be having that effect on your own insurance, it is not that specific.

    Feel free to give us a try for a comparison, we'd be very happy to help.

    Just to be ultra-pedantic, it's 150% more (to two sig figs)... ;)

    It is an increase of over 250%, but 150% more. So both correct :)

    As a 100% of 362 = 360, 150% of 362 = 543
