Cant even get an insurance quote on Mr2... 10 Years, 6 Months ago  
I havnt tried many yet but i dont think there is a point without checking with the people who actually have insured there mr2's I cannot get classic insurance or even any kind of policy with limited milage with axa until i am 25.. they wont touch me on the car on a normal policy unless im "30 with 4 years no claims". Liberty (quinn)wouldnt quote me either..

Ive tried tried finding a number for campion & sparrow but they seem to have split into seperate companies..

Anyone know if there is a company that doesnt discriminate against the fact im under 25 for classic insurance?? the car is only going to be used once a week maybe twice for a spin to tesco's or when we go out (if we find a baby sitter ) not like my other car which i do 1000+ miles per week in..

If you are or have insured an mr2 under the age of 25 please post up who with, how much and a number for them please.. thanks in advance!

That's the bugger in this country.

I have the classic policy, but sure I am a classic myself at 38.

Good luck with getting a policy sorted out, plenty of young folk here to help.

Call First Ireland - www.firstireland.ie/

They got me insured years ago when I couldn't get insured anywhere else.

This should help! If you already have a policy with Quinn you can just transfer the car on the policy. I'm 23 and that's how I managed it. However ***It is important that you tell them that you have ALREADY bought the car** because if you just phone looking for a quote they'll say they don't insure that car. They have quoted me on RX8s and FTO GPvRs this way. Was only an extra €50 for me till May (from last week) on top of my original policy on an E46 BMW 318ci. Good luck!

Age: 24
NCD: 1 year (but no claims)
Points: 0
Car: MR2 GTS
Insurer: Quinn/Liberty - 1600, TPFT

They wouldn't insure me on the non-turbo ones though. Make sure you are insuring the right model, because some of the models you will be refused on

I was with quinn when i bought my first mr2, told me they didn't insure mr2 but when i told them i had already bought it they transferred my policy (from a 1.5 civic) and only charged about €80 more for about 6 months.
They then sent a renewal and the price was great, cant remember how much now as it was years ago.

The best thing to do would be insure a car for a few weeks, pay by DD then tell them you bought a new car (the mr2), then you just have to hope they don't screw you on the premium increase.

im 23 and couldnt get a quote anywhere. i wz already insured wit axa on my pug206 so i literly had 2 go in2 de office n talk wit de manager 2 transfer de policy (dey refused me over de fone). i had already bought the car at this stage aswel. wen my renewal date came up dey quoted me 900 (dey ave 2 quote u den). i got cheaper insurance wit campion in portlaoise 0578622100. fully comp only 700. dont tink aywher will insure you under classic until 25+. ur better off callin in2 de offices instead of ringin, better results face 2 face. hope dis helps.

Campbell Autoline in the north insured my 94 for €250 fully comp. I believe Brophys in portlaoise do third party only for €150.
Do a search for Campbell's here I put their number up before.

No I'm in Leinster myself. It's all legit, just need to show them your policy for your daily driver.

Too old !! might depend on whether its daily driver or not.
Been promised reduction next year for when my '90 Turbo Jap Import turns 25 - testing description when trying to get quotes

€285 with Campion, plus €25 vintage membership = €310 gets me on the road but not as daily driver

Try Majestic Financial , the guy who owns it Jack Kinane is a sound bloke who is into classic vehicles and said he would try and do a group deal for us months ago but there didn't seem to be enough interest on the site so I never followed it up . His no. Is 018392026 . Its worth a try .

What a load of shit, if the car has a valid NCT then why should it matter what age the car is?
