Gone up €300, cheapest i can get is €1,098. No claims in my first 2 years of driving.

If I worked in Castlebar I'd tell them to get f**ked and just sell my car.

I am sick. Absolute ****s
They finally did it man... They killed my f**kin' car...

You a young driver Mark? Why's it so expensive?

Shop around is the only advice. If all companies are offering similar then unfortunately you've got some risk attached to you

When the rang to renew they knocked another €50 off.

got my renewal last week, gone up 170 quid, can get potentially cheaper if i change to AIG and use their driving app, don't think it's worth the hassle for a potential 70 quid saving

I'll try 123.ie tomorrow and see what the story is

I'm 27 and only driving for 2 years which is why it's so high. Awful frustrating though.

25plus.ie has been the cheapest for me for the last 2 years, allthough this year they did jump up , they still worked out the cheapest.

I think Anpost were looking cheap aswell and Britton Insurance up in donegal.

Two years it is.

I was in the same boat so now myself and my wife switch insurance each year on the same car, this year I'm the main with her named driver and next year vice versa, it's the only way to keep both sets of no claims floating. If you have no one that can fill that role I'm not sure what you'd do.

Yep, that's exactly what we've done. It's a common enough practice for this situation. Just cancel or wait for her insurance to be up.

You are supposed to be the registered owner of the vehicle in order to be the main driver under an insurance policy.   At least that is the way is used to be when I worked in the industry.    It was a question specifically asked on the proposal form.
 
Check into that, when renewing again, it might be in the small print.

If its husband & wife its grand, it can be registered in either name and insured in either name. For everyone else it needs to be insured in whoever's name it's registered
 
Just about the above posts, switching every year is one way of going about it all but it really shouldn't need to be done. If you haven't had a policy in a few years and lost your bonus but were driving under the missus insurance for example, you'd get the benefit of that driving experience when you go to get your own policy again anyway. At least with the majority of companies you will
Some people just deserve a slap

Is online the best place to get car insurance instead of the store?

After searching around i found 123.ie to be the cheapest but was wandering if there's anywhere cheaper than them?

Had to renew car insurance there last week.Was with Allianz.850e last year.I have a full Irish license for 20 years,no points and drive a 1.4 litre car.Thats a fairly hefty slice of wedge as it was and then they wanted 950e off me this year.

I rang around and eventually got 650e from Chill.The only way to sort this is to ring around,spend an afternoon at it.

Kimbap would it not be cheaper to do online? I'm in a similar position regarding full Irish license, no points and 10+ years experience. The cheapest i got yesterday online with a 1.4L car was €490 from 123.ie
