It was suggested by a colleague at work that I try Footman James. What can I say, apart from singing their praises to the sky! After warning me that they probably wouldn’t be competitive, they proceeded to offer me a Fully Comprehensive policy, including European breakdown (very imporatant), with unlimited mileage for less than half of the price of anyone else. I’d recommend them if you have something classic/slightly unusual to insure.
