    Oh plums :(

    It's getting close again

    I need to renenw my insurance and the company I'm with (naming no names) wants to up my insurance by 200quid!

    I've been googling like a man possessed now looking for cheaper insurrance for me Nova and I've been reading about something called a 'telematics' box, does anyone here have any experience with these?

    I read about them here: Black box technology saves young drivers' money and lives - mirror.co.uk

    If theres any way I can get some money off this year then i'm a happy lad!

    cheers,

    flux

    I've been on these forums for awhile now, I just don't post much as you've guessed.

    Yeah Flux, as in 'The flux capacitor', Back2TheFuture

    I did post this in car talk and under insurance, it's about my insurance, isn't this the right place to post then?

    Chris Knott, I'll look into them, do you think I'd get a discount for mentioning the forum? If a few people on here use them??? (hey it's worth a shot)

    A lot of the more specialised insurers offer discounts for owners clubs. Those telemetry things stop you from driving at night and stuff like that remember, and if you break the speed limit regularly and flagrantly they'll know.

    What car is it?

    Thanks Tathan, I guess that could be a downside, I don't really travel that late though, Only to work at 8:30am and back from work at 6pm, and if I did need to travel anywhere later than that i guess as a one off I could pay the fine/toll-thingy... in the article a company called insurethebox gets mentioned, I don't think they charge for night-time driving... might look into that.

    I'm driving a Nova

    You might be able to get classic insurance then, depending on if you can find someone who isn't gonna laugh hysterically when you say the words "calibra turbo engine"
