What kind of insurance does Go Compare offer?

As a price comparison site focused on insurance, Go Compare can deliver a selection of quotes for a wide wariety of requirements including motorbike, van, motorhome, taxi and black box insurance as well as insurance for cars.

However Go Compare says they don’t offer specific classic car insurance; instead they suggest you try their partners at It’s Classic Car Insurance who will be able to help. Also Go Compare don’t offer price comparison for multi-car policies - if you own a classic it is unlikely to be your only car - so although they can quote you for a classic car it will not be a policy that incorporates things like agreed value.

What kind of car qualifies as a classic?

As Go Compare compares a variety of insurance providers, it will be down to the individual insurers that are quoted as to whether they classify your car as a classic. Cars made before 1990 are more likely to receive classic status but younger cars with a cult following or rarity may also fit the bill.

How your car is used can play a bigger part in getting a classic car discount on your policy, as most insurers expect any classic to be used as a second car and cover 5,000 miles a year or less, be kept off the street and not used for commuting.
