PSA: Mazda Bongo insurance
…has been the one negative of our ownership so far. Because it’s 8 seater, grey import, etc etc, we’ve been paying 700-odd-quid despite double-digit years’ NCD.
However, thanks to the nice people on Bongo Fury, I’ve found out today that Admiral are being much more accomodating now. New price for this coming year is just 230 quid, for two of us, 12k miles, business use…Posted 5 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
It’s a shame you didn’t find Bong Fury earlier. For the 6 years we had a Bongo we only paid £300-£340 a year thanks to one of the specialists on there.
In fact I’m still insured by them as they were only about £20 dearer than others for the Peugeot Partner Tepee too.Posted 5 years ago

Oh, we tried them, but they couldn’t make it cheap for us. Insurance is like that, innit, they all want their target market and if you fall out of the profile group, it ramps up fast.
We were with 2Gether, one of the other frequently used insurers on there.
I suspect it’s complicated by the fact that we use it as our main (only) car, park it in a moderate risk area, and have business use cover. And that’s on top of the main complications: grey import, 8 seats.
The camper-modified crowd always seemed to get very very cheap cover.
Anyway, sorted now!Posted 5 years agoPimpmaster JazzMember
Admiral here for our Bongo too. I did get it in writing that it was insured despite being modified into a camper van – I was nervous that they insisted on naming it an MPV.
No idea what our fuel consumption is, but I’d be surprised if it’s over 30mpg. It still guzzled when driving through europe last year, where we religiously sat at 60 on any major road.
It is absolutely ace though. Worth every penny. 😀Posted 5 years ago
