HonestJohn.co.uk investigates the true cost of classic car insurance

Published 22 October 2013

Consumer champion HonestJohn.co.uk has launched 'Real Insurance', an investigation into the true cost of classic car insurance, but we need your help.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be carrying out a nationwide study to discover how much UK drivers pay for their classic insurance and asking, is it value for money? Like our Real MPG initiative, we’ll be analysing the official data and comparing it with the information you provide to discover the true cost of car insurance in Britain.

If you’re an Honest John reader then you’ll know all about Real MPG and how it works out your genuine fuel economy – now we’re doing the same for classic car insurance.

To get involved with ‘Real Insurance’ you’ll need to complete a short survey to tell us much you pay and what sort of cover you have. We’ll also need to know what classic you drive and which area you live in, along with a few other details. Don’t worry, the survey only takes a minute and the data you provide will be invaluable in calculating the true cost of classic car cover in the UK.

So become a consumer champion and help HonestJohn.co.uk discover the real cost of insurance. Log on and fill in your survey by clicking here

This is a useless survey unless it includes the true classic car insurers like Footman James etc.

It would be interesting to see how classic car insurance compares with modern car insurance, and as you say, see if you're getting value for money.
