Hi all my car insurance is comeing up soon for renewal been looking around various sites but what ive noiced is they all want big deposits iam aware of this like and have paid deposits in the past but with funds being tight now iam looking for car insurance with no deposit or a small deposit not like the ones ive been getting quoted like 190 deposit anyone know a insurnace company that are willing to give me a small deposit or no deposit. cheers o by the way my car is a fiesta 1.3i endure e engine on a 51 plate 2001.

Hi

I really doubt you will get a deposit smaller than 190, I might be wrong. Im guessing your paying monthly as you said about deposits, so either your going to have to pay a deposit or pay the first month up front. Depending on your insurance prices this could be around the same.
I'd try to borrow some money from a friend or family etc, and just pay that small deposit as this normally covers the first 2 months cover.

Thanks
Kris

Hey

Try going to a company you either like or have been with previously.

Tell them about this quote you have got and ask them to match it, or you going to march over to AXA :rolleyes:

They might match it to keep your valuable business ;)

Thanks

Play the insurance companies off against each other, I managed to get my yearly premium down from 1900, to 700 (yes I know, pricey - but I'm young) by taking the pass plus course for new drivers after I passed my test, and playing the insurance companies off against each other by asking to beat each others quotes; the cheapest 2 I found eventually were More Than and co-operative (even though they wouldn't take my pass plus into account!)

Good luck with your endeavors!

I had Lexham do that back when I used to ride a 50cc Slowped (being 16 i couldn't get my hands on a car, alright! :unsure: ), they put my premium up for no reason - so i changed to Chaucer. Its really irritating and stupid at times how they work it out but perhaps its just been a bad year for 1.3 MKV Fiestas with drivers in their 20's :S Who knows.

tips for lower insurance.

1. do less mileage ;) ;)

2. you could be a named driver on a parents policy. parent would actualy have to drive that car for it to be legal ;) im currently paying £27 a month and im 25 year old on my boss's dads policy. yeah he does drive the car as well ;) ;)

3. location of were car is kept based on postcode (yeah they have risk postcodes)

4. one insurance company i got quotes off really did base some of the cost on my job title. in my place of work i am I.T support, web designer, estate agent. so i had a few to choose from :D
