wow... I mean tbh, I think the problem is they had no way of accounting for my non-UK driving experience in their online form, but even then.... I was amused about the amount of posts on here complaining of £100 differences in rates when I was thousands away lmao
That will obviously have a bearing, probably for most insurers - but for pluginsure probably much more of a bearing than others.

In percentage terms you're probably not far away from some of the absurd differences I've seen between main insurers and pluginsure or other "specialists"...£100 extra is significant when you're only paying £200!

Some insurers in this country have a really weird way of telling you they don't want your money - I once had a quote for £8,995 for my car insurance (£200 more than I had paid for the car). At the time, sensible quotes were coming it at £600-700 and my risk profile is far from terrible...

Totally shocked! Online quotation for my new Leaf 40 Tekna was an horrendous £2316 which I thought MUST be a mistake after insuring the car it is to replace, a 2016 Mazda MX5 soft-top, a couple of weeks ago for £207. Gave them a call but was told that the price quoted online was correct - I just have the wrong post code. Ho humm! Will have to call the Meerkat!

EDIT: Insured with legal protection for £300 with cover which goes above that originally asked for - protected NCD, (and all that despite my "bad" post code).

No one has mentioned their credit payments unless you are all paying in full. Last year when I insured with them they said they use Close Brothers for monthly payments and their interest was much higher than I was prepared to pay. Their quote this year is ok but with interest it may be cheaper to go with Avira who only quote monthly figures.

Did a Quote with Compare the Market for a Tesla Model 3 SR+ just to see how much ( if i ever come in to some money ? ) came back with £2000 ?
Then did one with Direct Line came back £405 ?
