"Not that I am aware of" is my favorite answer. If they ever ask it and record the calls, that way I am not declaring out right no, and they cant prove it. I am being honest as far as I can be. Doesn't matter what it is, cars, insurance, or anything else in life, these few words can save your bacon on so many occassions.

 

Those words could have saved me alot of money haha

At least insurance companies came to their senses with the winter tyres now. I remember that several years ago I wanted to fit winter tyres for my Yaris SR (that's Toyota's equivalent of Zetec S) and the company told me that this will be classed as a mod and therefore chargeable. They wanted 2 grand extra FFS!

Their reasoning was that once I fit winter tyres to the Yaris, I'll start snow racing.

Yup, with the ground clearance of about 3 inches, snow racing in the Yaris would be absolutely amazing - it'll turn it to a first snow plough by Toyota, :D

Stefanos,

 

there are a number of variables, for example the number of years you have driven, location, car (sub model), years of no claims bonus etc.

 

Lets say (ignoring the area) you are 23 with a car that is relatively well targeted, have 3 years driving but no no claims bonus (you wont have earned any here in the UK), I suspect you would be looking at around £1700 as a minimum mark generally speaking.

 

What you can do for arguments sake, is visit somewhere like "Go Compare" or "Compare the Market", then you can fill in your personal details, and pick a random address in the UK roughly around where you are aiming to move to, claiming to park the car on the road, 0 No Claims, average market value of the vehicle (declaring all mods you plan to have on your car) and this will give you the estimates
