Classic Car Insurance

Post by johnjb » 14 Nov 2016 10:37 pm

Hi Everyone
Seeking some advice about Classic car insurance for a vehicle registered in N Ireland.
Who is everyone insured with and what is the best type of cover TPFT or Comphensive.
Forgive the general and basic enquiry.
Thanks for your help

I have found that fully comp is often cheaper than TPFT

I go onto confused.com and change every year to the cheapest one.... sometimes its third party, sometimes its comprehensive.... I gave up being loyal to one company or you pay hundreds more.... its not too much hassle since you can e-mail the new company your renewal notice as proof of no claims bonus..... oh, and Confused always ring you back so give your enemies number instead ;-0
