- adding named driver to motor insurance – how much??
thanks, ill try this. is there any way to try this online, or will i have to wait another half hour to get through to them? :-/
EDIT: looks like i can only get quotes online, any changes to policy ill have to ring them and incur a £35 fee for the privilige of an amendment.Posted 3 years ago
just had a look at those day cover jobbies but they all seem to be up to 75 yrs old. as healthy as he is, pops is 78 now :-/
thanks for the heads up tho, i didnt know they existed.
EDIT: do you think theres any mileage (sorry, no pun intended) in the idea of him trying to get a full years policy on my car, and he just amends it when he gets his own? or can you not have 2 different policies on the same car?Posted 3 years ago
parents are coming back to live in uk after about 6 years in thailand. theyre staying with us for 19 days until their accommodations ready. ive offered to lend em my car when i dont need it, but hastings direct have priced it as £82 for my dad to be added to policy for 19 days!! my whole years policy was only £142! he has a clean licence and no claims. told em to forget it out of principle but not sure what my options would be.
i asked how much just to have ‘any driver’ for 19 days but they dont do that. ive got around 2 months left on my policy.
whats my best option do you think? take out a more reasonable policy from someone else and end the hastings early? price up a rental car for a few days for him? will every insurance company charge the same sort of fee for a few days do you think?
thanks for any advicePosted 3 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
So it seems
and that might explain the cost of the quote you got. Although it seems you shouldn’t be able to refuse insurance on the basis of age – so even if the brokers are saying the policy is for under 75 year olds they shouldn’t be able to refuse an application from someone over 75.Posted 3 years ago
