The amount of paying or taking insurance should not be just random decision i believe. One should look into the income as well as the income tax slab too.

Why should income have any bearing at all on your car insurance costs?

EU courts would soon have that marked down as discriminatory, your income has no influence on your insurance risk

I'm 46yrs just got '04 Cooper S, and I was quoted £150 with full NCB, or since its my second car £250 without any NCB all fully comp.

I was impressed at how low the insurance is when you are old!!!

The higher a persons income the less likely they are to defraud their insurance company if and when the opportunity presents itself.

There are so many factors that play a part in what a person pays for insurance. The answer to your question will probably be as beneficial as asking someone how much they spend on groceries. Your best bet is to shop the companies in your area and go from there.

I pay £150 pa for my wife and I for fully comprehensive cover on our Cooper S convertible. One of the few rewards for being 71! Yes, it's Saga.

For my 07 Cooper 1.6 d (chilli) I paid £547 fully comp (windscreen, legal, personal accident and key cover included) with Adrian Flux. I'm 28 with 1 year no claims.

This was cheaper than the cheapest non-telematics quotes on MoneySupermarket and Confused and still offered the same price after I moved to a different address for which the quotes on comparison websites were even more expensive (additional £40-£50).

Definitely worth giving them a call.
