Car Insurance

We all need it, we all think we pay too much for it and some of us probably do! When your renewal is next due, please be sure to checkout the guys below. These companies support mg-rover.org and yes, we do get a little kick back from them if you do take a policy out with any of them, so in addition to getting a great deal, you also help us and support mg-rover.org as well :)
 
It really is a win-win for everyone.

A-Plan Insurance

Our Top-Dog, when it comes to Insurance (no, oooh no,  its not the company with the nodding dog) is A-Plan insurance in Bletchley. Headed up by Steve Marsh, a long time MGF owner and MG enthusiast this particular branch can do really good deals on MGF / TF insurance especially if you have mods on your car. Don't fret if you don't have an MGF or TF though as they're pretty competitive on the rest of the MG Range.
 
One thing to bear in mind when you shop around is that cheapest is hardly ever best. Apart from Tesco value Jaffa cakes, they are better! However where car insurance is concerned, cheap is nearly always nasty. A lot of the cheaper policies have terms hidden away in the small price and sadly you only find out how good they are when you come to claim. Speaking from experience, the team at Bletchley are absolutely superb. I've had to claim twice for two non-fault accidents that my wife had in our MGF and both times the claims where handled expertly and in one instance they even managed to persuade the insurance company to pay out on a repair for more than the car was insured for!! (Ok, it was only about 100 more, but I was sure it was going to be written off).
 
Also bear in mind that a courtesy car is only of use if your car is worth a few thousand or more. They may tell you the car is free if you make a claim, however the hire cost is added onto the cost of the claim and paid by the insurance, so very often can lead to a car being written off when it would have otherwise been repaired.
 
I cannot recommend them any stronger than that.

Chris Knott Insurance - http://www.chrisknott.co.uk - have been involved with car clubs for over 20 years so they understand your needs & requirements! 

The scheme starts for ages 22 and over for Comprehensive cover, & 19 and over for TPF&T cover, and you must have at least 1 year's NCB (unless you have NCB on a second car or a company car letter to state at least 1 year's claim free driving).

All drivers must have held a full UK licence for at least 1 year, and to insure a 'performance' car, there must be at least 1 years experience of driving that, or similar performance cars. Unfortunately, the scheme is not competitive on all M - Manchester, L - Liverpool, OL - Oldham & SK1-12 - Stockport postcodes and excludes Northern Ireland.

We consistently have a very high renewal retention rate meaning that people renew with us because of our constantly competitive insurance premiums & experienced, reliable customer service. That is why we can promote this insurance scheme knowing that we are in it for the long term.

Sky Insurance

Sky Insurance's target market is the car enthusiast, specialising in policies for members of car clubs such as MG-ROVER.org. We believe that anyone who puts the time and effort into looking after and modifying their pride and joy is a lower risk than your average driver. 

Unlike other players in the insurance market, Sky Insurance do care about our customers, and will do our utmost to find the most suitable and best policy for each individual, at a competitive price. 

Limitations

Limitations of the scheme imposed by Sky Insurance are that all policy holders must be at least 19 years of age and have held a full driving licence for at least 2 years. We will be more competitive for the older drivers with a good driving record rather than a 20 year old with 0 NCB looking for comprehensive cover.
