That's with RAC.
And I just amended the quote because I'm now 18 and it dropped loads :D

I think I'm opposite to every single young driver.
They all complain about high prices, it's never been expensive for me.

My first car ( 1 year ago ) was a Ford Focus 1.8 - That was £100 a month.
I'm now driving a 2.0 van and that £90 a month.
And my Mini quote is £40 odd a month.

Don't know what I'm doing differently ?

Are you the named driver or were you parents?

to be honest I'd be happy with any of the quotes you guys are getting! Cheapest I've found on a e reg austin mini 998 was 4600 :| and that was with my mum and grandad as secondary drivers. Not sure what I'm going to do :(

I'm 18 now, and took out my insurance when I passed my test in July. The cheapest I could get was a £600 deposit, and then £240 a month for 9 months, and that was with Graham Sykes. (who are the worst insurance company ever and I want to kill everybody that I've spoken, and email there)

 

It is so high for me because I'm a full time student, going to do 7000 miles, and live in a bad area with no garage. I couldn't get it any cheaper.

All I can say is good luck! but your quotes of £2700 were sadly realistic for me

Strangely, the quotes I've been getting have been cheaper if the car is parked on my driveway, instead of a locked garage! Got a quote with alloys and exhaust changes with 10,000 miles for £1355 On compare the market :D

Thats disgraceful! I found that some of the cheapest quotes were on Compare the Market. I found for me it was much cheaper having both my parents on my policy as named drivers, and for some reason it was cheaper having the car declared as being parked on the driveway or the road (instead of a locked garage....how strange!)

Think they were been awkward with me as it was through emails. I asked for a price for when I pass my test and if I added the wheels, exhaust and arches later on

Aviva were quite cheap. I got a quote for £1100. That was for 998, exhaust changes and uprated brakes, 6000 miles, TPFT. Just checked again and for the same thing they now want £2700! And I'm in a low risk postcode.

So one thing that we can say for sure, is that every insurance company varies by about £3k for very similar policies!!
