  • VXR Insurance - young driver?

    Ive currently got an 09 Audi A3 1.6 Sport and Ive had it over 2 years, and as much as I love it, I want something with a bit more boot for a year or so, and the Astra VXR really appeals to me! Im just turned 20 (Birthday today!), and as you expect, cant get insured anywhere!

    However, I read a post on here about the age of VXR drivers and there were a lot of drivers around my age or even younger! I was wondering if someone could tell me how they (young drivers) are insured or companies they use??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Welcome to VXROnline.

    Use the search function, many posts on insurance.

    As insurance is down to your circumstances -age, post code, ncb, driving experience, job description etc does not mean that the insurance company will insure you.

    Use the internet search engines, because of your age insurance is going to be cheap.

        They are insured as you said mate but they are paying crazy prices like £3k a year. When I sarted driving I promised myself never to pay more than £1500 a year on insurance and thats what I stuck to. Even £1500 is a lot of money to throw at insurance. Say you're current insurance is £1500, why not save the extra £1500 a year you would be paying for the VXR until you're 22, 23 then maybe go for the Corsa Nurburgring. Then with the £3k you saved buy any mods you want to add !!

        If you're adamant about getting a VXR just now then look at the insurance comparison sites, once you have you're lowest from them phone the specialists like Greenlight, A-Plan and Adrian Flux and see if they are any better

          Yeah I get what you mean mate. Id jump at paying £3k a year, as crazy as it sounds, thats fine by me... But, at the moment, Im getting quotes back of around £8k! And got to be honest, Im not prepared to pay that!

          I will keep looking. I wanted one soon really, just to get me to uni and back for a year as a bit of a laugh, then maybe change it again next year when im finished.

          Keep the replies coming!
