Don't 'front' your insurance though. Check quotes through moneysupermarket, I have found them cheaper than the meerkats, Brian and those go compare muppets.

Also, try fully comp, tpft, and try raising excess. I have found in my younger years going fully comp was actually cheaper than tpft

I have no idea, it is something O was concidering but the pass plus costs £110 so it would have to be a bigger saving to justify the cost

The other alternate option is to buy a banger that will give you the cheap insurance for a year till the price comes down for you.

Keep the 1.4 and insure it on a limited miles per year basis

When I passed my test many moons ago when pass plus first came out I thought it was a scam until I started looking for insurance. I paid the £110 to do it and saved myself £1100 on my first years insurance so yeah it is worth it. Not sure what the savings will be these days though.

Wish I could say the same....

Straight after passing my test (Jan 2013) I did pass plus and achieved an Exceeded Grade.

My insurer at the time (Admiral) stated they did not recognise the pass plus qualification.....

I had a look around with other insurers (this was on an 11 year old 1.2 clio at the time - worth about £1,000) best quote was £2,400.

Admiral, despite not recognising my pass plus still worked out far cheaper at £1,100 comprehensive first year (multi car policy - However I do build up my own NCD/NCB).

Second year on the same car was £595.

Third year would have been £555 but ended up getting the Fiesta 1.4 then, now moved to LV and get Comprehensive with some added perks for £695.00 with 3 years No Claims...
