    I know insurance is hammered to death but I'd like to know what the experience of high value car insurance is.

    I'm currently with Chubb - the policy is great and they seem able to insure anything, but it is a bit expensive.

    I'm beginning to look around for requotes as I'm getting a Stradale and this is where the problem comes. Most insurance companies don't seem able to insure a car of this value.

    To start with I thought it might be me but no - I'm an old fart, live in a 'safe' part of the world, garage the cars etc. It's just the value they seem worried about and most say they top out at £90k.

    Where do you lot who have cars over this value go (other than Chubb)?

    Hi Robin,

    Im with Norwich Union also paying high premium...and had same probs as you mentioned.

    London Victoria gave me a quotation half what im currently paying but was based on book value if the car was totalled.

    Theres a thread relating to this on here already..

    Yes, read the thread. London and Victoria don't know about the Stradale but also said they wouldn't insure a car of that value.

    Priviledge said no 90k top - they underwrite Direct Line, Tesco and others so they would also top out.

    Haven't tried Norwich Union but on the 360 Modena last year they cost more than Chubb and the cover was much worse with NU.
