Direct Line are a funny old lot. I insured a 94 Micra 1.3 Super S with them in 95 for £500 with "any driver over 25" at the ripe old age of 30 having not driven a car for 8 years. The next year, following a claim free year and a reduction in drivers to myself and girlfriend (27 licence since 18 no claims) as named drivers only they quoted £500 i.e. no no-claims-discount for me.madmancooper said:Just wondering if there was anyone under 21 buying a mini cooper s? Its just that i looked for insurance from direct line and they wont insure anyone under 21 on that car. anyone got any better ideas??? im panicking now!
KEWL! doesn't sound too bad, tell me more! is that under your name? and did u just call mini and ask for insurance??? i was just thinking, by the time i order and the car gets here, i would be your age and it would be around that pricebatemano said:Well it looks like Cooper S here I come . I just had an insurance quote from MINI Insurance and it came to £1978 with a £650 excess. I think that quote is quite reasonable.
Yes, that is under my name, and with 2 years NCB. I just called the number in the front of the MINI options price list. It's just called MINI Insurance. No other insurance companies would even give me a quote, so I was quite suprised when I was given this one. As for the standard Cooper, I would still consider it as it is quite a bit cheaper to buy and to insure to, and it still pretty quick remember. I am just hoping they have sorted out all the rattles from around the car, because my MINI ONE sounds like it's about 5 years old.12000rpm said:
