Hi welcome to the Mini Forum.

 

There is quite a few out there that will insure Minis, obviously all depends on age, location, points etc etc. 

 

I would look on comparison sites as they give a slightly different option, but also check out the likes of Peter James, Heritage, Lancaster. 

A good google will get you a long way.

 

On a different note, have a look in the insurance section of the forum as there is lots of useful tips and advice in there. 

 

 

Good luck.

Hi & Welcome to TMF

Ideally for a classic mini you'll want an agreed value classic policy from a specialist insurer, so that in the event of a claim you'll actually get back what your pride & joy is worth, and not just " standard market value" for an old car, which is usually just a few hundred quid. These types of policies don't tend to be available through comparison websites, or mainstream insurers though, so give some of the following specialist insurers a try:

Peter James
Adrian Flux
HIC
RH Classic
Lancaster
Footman James

Be warned though, classic policies are really intended for second/hobby cars and whilst you can use them for a daily use car, they don't usually allow you use, or earn any no claims discount. The other issue is that they don't tend to cover younger see drivers, so if you're under 21, then you'll probably have to make do with a standard policy through a mainstream insurer instead.
