>I am 25, live in greater london and have a drive way. How much is insurance going to kill me?
As you are out of the 18-24 wallet rape zone, it won't be as bad as it could have been. An interesting idea is to look at the sort of cars that cool people wouldn't be caught dead in. The main reason it's so expensive for a youngster to insure a Corsa isn't that it's particularly high up the ratings, but that it's the spiritual successor to the Nova as the go-to twatmobile for boy racers. Also, try fiddling the details on your quotes to see what happens. Obviously, don't put yourself down as a chicken chaser unless your job actually involves chasing chickens, but you can get away with anything that a reasonable person would say equates to your job, even if it's not the most accurate. Add someone with a clean licence as an occasional driver (with their permission) as long as you can come up with an excuse for why they would need to drive your car. If you plump for the driveway, make sure that you do actually park the car there more than once in a blue moon - if you do need to make a claim, this is one of the simplest things to check, and if you're looking at more than a few hundred they almost certainly will. Follow the Martin Lewis guide to ensure you've covered as much of the market as you can, but also check reviews of likely targets, as it may be that they're £200 cheaper than the competition because they don't give a fuck about anyone. Check the price levels for third-party vs fully comp, because often there isn't much of a difference (typically TPT is taken by people who want "cheaper" insurance, while TPO is taken by people who have a track record), and comp is generally more valuable than the cost difference would imply (e.g. it'll cover damage to your own vehicle and things such as windscreen repairs).
