A tip I saw on here was to try Volkswagen Insurance (run by UKI Insurance) - they are coming out best for me this year.

Have you tried Adrian Flux? You may also get a discount if your part of an enthusiast club too.

Yes, thank you, I did.

£10.90 less than Direct Line my current insurer.

So far VW is in the running.

Self and wife both had 50%+ increases at renewal from DLINE. 15-20 minutes searching and fiddling saved hundreds. Ended up with Morethan, not the cheapest but we’ve used them several times before. Nb bizarrely can be cheaper thru a search programme than going direct.
Good luck.
Gone. Mk6 GTI DSG, 2012 ,5dr , DPB, 18’s, Leather, Dynaudio, Cruise, DAB, Auto Mirrors, Storage Pack, TPMS.
Current. Mk7.5 R DSG, 2019, 5dr, DPB,  Pretorias, Leather, Memory Seat,  Climate Screen, Rear Camera, Black Caps

Insurance companies are taking the ****. Had a 60% increase quote for a multi car policy and got this down to the same as last year saving £100s.
Mk6 GTI Carbon Grey, 2010 Bluetooth and voice fitted, a few VCDS mods still a comfortable family car. Red Scirocco 2011 twin charger stage 1 - enjoyable drive now gone.  White 2016 Polo GTI (roller skate on steroids) replaced with an Indium Grey 2019 7.5 GTI PP.
