perhaps you might like to tell chuck who your car is actually insured with ;)

and after my S3 insurance adventures, hearing $2700 makes me feel good - my Cooper S went down to $2300 this year and I don't have 60% NCB. I've even got an S badge hahahaha :roll:

I used Shannons. $1600 for $100k cover.


There are some advantages in being old. :)

Just Car Insurance and NRMA both quoted $1200 for the new GTi Golf.
We went with JCI as NRMA only allow chips on non turbo or non supercharged vehicles.
The Merc is with CGU (insured for 66k) for a $1475 premium (went up nearly$200 this year !) :beat:

We use AAMI for the TTQ and it's only $973! Covered for market value. That's for a 27yo (moi) and Jenni is 24yo. Our old policy with Suncorp Insurance was well over the $2,000 mark and AAMI originally wouldn't insure anyone under the age of 25 for a TT but because Jen was with AAMI since she started driving we got them to insure it.

The guy who just purchased our TTQR is only 22 and copped a whopping $4,099 bill!!!! :shock:

I pay $2200 with NRMA. I was 21 when I got it first insured but my dad's name is also on the policy as an owner as well as my own.

I find Shannons very good as you can actually talk to them rather than being treated as another number.

Just insured the Harley for $635! Insured for $27K with limited use ie 5000km/pa. Full 60% NCB. :D

Oops I forgot to mention I'm about to hit 30yrs of age. :(

Also I've found the area you live in also makes a huge difference. If you have the option of using other postcodes, give it a go.

Try RACV, not sure if they insure for NSW & QLD, though they will insure under 30 turbo drivers...most wont! If you bundle your finance and insurance with RACV you will get a good discount, around 15%.
Shannons and Just Car will charge too much, stay away.
Try CGU & RACV. I have $1700 comp on RACV under 30. CGU is little more expensive.

Also try a insurance broker!

That's a pretty good price IMO, we pay under $600 for the GTI with AAMI, we are in Canberra don't forget, and that's with two over 30 drivers maximum NCB for life and multi-policy discounts. Originally they wouldn't insure us as we were under 30 and we had to "twist their arm", as it stands now the car is not insured for any under 30 driver.
