Sorted out all the final details for the insurance. I've got my mondeo covered for £640 with a £350 excess, protected no claims, fully comp, and with my better half as a named driver. Overall a massively better deal than anyone else was willing to give me. He also did me a great deal for insuring my girlfriend on my 1.6 focus zetec with me as a named driver.

Whilst I have no experience with making a claim or being with this company for an extended period of time I would highly recommend calling Chris Knott for a quote as so far the customer service has been excellent.

+1 on Chris Knott insurance. They've smashed the comparison site quotes for mine & my wife's insurance premiums the last two years , with lower excess & better level of cover.

They include 90 days EU driving cover, ICE equipment cover, key cover up to £750 in case you lose your keys or some !Removed! damages your locks & the locks need to be replaced, personal effect cover for your manbag, personal accident, leagal, courtesy car & windscreen cover with £75 excess. They put us with Highway Insurance, a division of LV & they actually go direct to the underwriters if they need to negotiate a better price. Staff are apparently targeted on customer service rather than sales figures.

Only problem is they're only open til 5pm Mon to Friday & 12 on Saturday, so difficult if you work office hours. Saying that, one of them stayed late to call me back last week to ensure we had temp cover to pick up my Wife's Mondeo. There are also a few high risk postcode areas they don't insure.

I heard of them through another Marque's forum, which they give a discount for being a member of. They also knocked £20 off for a second car in the household. Can't fault them, feels like you're talking to a real person who can use their own discretion, rather than just saying "computer says no" lol.

And no, I don't work for them. I've just been so impressed that now I shout about them to anybody that'll listen.

I do well with Hastings Direct. I get vandalism cover, windscreen cover, other cars, fully comp for the princely sum of £35 a month. It would be £25 but I deferred costs spread over the year for changing cars etcetera, I changed 3 cars in three months so got stung with a few admin fees. I switched from my Accord to a ST24, then back to the Accord when the ST24 turned out to be too dangerous to drive, then to the Focus. I have £100 excess. 
When shopping for insurance quotes, don't be tempted to get a cuddly meerkat, you will normally find that going through moneysupermarket will bring your prices right down, well it has in my experience.

Not sure if I wrote this in, but I found the cheapest quote was with Diamond or something (basically an insurance company originally created for women, also sister company with Admiral) I went through them and then Admiral matched the price... so ended up staying with Admiral, although it's so damn cheeky when you consider they knocked £100 off their renewal quote, ~ 25% *just like that*... obviously proves they make it up as they go along...
