    Hey,

    I was wondering if any Doctors out there can recommend any good car insurers. Mine seems to have doubled in price after having to change 'medical student' to 'Doctor', i've tried most compare sites but they are still ridiculous prices. Considering i've got 8 years no claims and have turned 25, I would expect this to be coming down, not doubling!

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Make sure you put "hospital doctor" rather than just "doctor" - should be cheaper as I think the increase is for GPs using cars for home visits.

    Mine went up a bit but I assumed it was because I moved to a dodgy area of London rather than naice Cambridge.

    Read this article:

    Hopefully this should explain why you your insurance has gone up and how to try and bring it down a bit.

    It shouldn't double based on that alone. Something else has changed. Not moved to London by any chance have you?

    Thank you emma! No, nothing has changed! The only thing I can think of is that rule they bought in at some point about making womens and mens insurance more equal!

    Think I'm just going to have to sweet talk my current insurers.
