I got mine through ASDA. It's £7 a month not sure the level of cover, quite sure it includes recovery though

Try looking at Admiral multi-car.
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and thatís being very conservative. So thatís £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head thatís £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

Northern Ireland is absolutely pants for insurance - I remember reading that it's something like 10-20% more expensive than the rest of the UK.  I'm on the same car and job as last year, I'm a year older, have another year of no claims, yet my best quote (after haggling) is 25% more than last year's price... my cousin in England drives the same car as me, is two years younger and his job is a red-flag one, yet he pays a third of the insurance price I pay.

Do you lose no claims discount if you take 6 - 12 months without driving?

If I remember right from my time working for Esure, they would accept anything up to 2 years gap.

Ta mate.

Check with your insurance how they long they allow, but I think it is still at least a 1 yr break is allowed.

I remember reading some advice last year about if you don't own a car but you other half does, swap the main driver over on the insurance each year and both build and retain NCB. Wish I'd done that as I lost full NCB when I sold my car, even though I was named on the wifes policy.

Cheers Rob. It's someone I will be adding as a named driver on my policy as their car is fucked. She doesn't want to be paying her own insurance for a car she wont be driving anymore and will be a few months before shes in a position to buy another one.

I get AA cover though my membership of the Toyota owners club for £56 all in.
Shame on the English FA, South Yorkshire Police, and The Sun.
