    Has anybody tried to get insurance for 6 months, thro summer months?
    My plan is to tax for 6 months say April to September then SORN thro the winter.
    I'm in the process of trying the usual companies that are in Pit Stop

    Berlinetta just passed MOT after 10 years.

    Good luck, Dave.
    I tried but to no avail.
    The only way possibly is to find an insurance company that will allow you to pay monthly, at a premium of course; then cancel after the required number of months. But insurance companies aren't too happy to do this!!!

    Hi David
    I had the same thoughts tried it on with insurers when they sent renewal this month, no go though.
    Bartered with them and got the yearly cost down to 118.00 for the year. You must be very close to me with you being in Crewe
    Regards
    Dave.

    Update. Spent some time on line, nobody appears to offer summer only cover, you have to cover for 12 months. I've found cover for 104 at Adrian Flux, limiting mileage to 3000 (probably to high).
    A bit disappointing, I thought, wrongly that the adverts said they tailor the cover to your needs. I have breakdown cover and courtesy car for free? Still the cost is around what I expected to pay.

    Hi
    You did well. I paid extra for my breakdown cover!
    Watch out for an increased 'policy issue fee' in subsequent years!!!

    Hi
    I am having an issue about paying a "policy issue fee". I hope to get somewhere as I currently insure three vehicles with the same company.
    Regards
    Dave

    Hi Dave, its one of the drawbacks of insuring through a "Broker", and a policy issue fee is normal practice. Only way round it is to go direct to an insurance company.When I worked a s an assessor it was amazing how many people thought that "brokers" were insurance companies. Cheees Chris

    Hi Chris
    Indeed it is a broker, to be fair the quotes are very competitive even with the policy issue fee I was seeing how far I could push them. They have come back justifying the policy renewal fee but not giving way on it.
    Thanks
    Dave

    Just paid 97 for 1500 miles on 'Tolkien'
    All I need now is to get some correct springs and an MOT.
