    My boyfriends insurance is over 2k on a 1999 car and hes been driving for a year now (maybe area has something to do with it?) In fact the cheapest insurance of any of my friends is £1500 and hes got a tracker and stuff on his car and agreements to not drive after a certain time to get it that cheap. Cant really understand why our insurnace is so high in comparson? Any ideas?? The insurance quote was as a named driver and not on my parents policy if that makes a difference?
    Where do you live?? What engine size is the car?

    That'll be the main reason tbh. The crime rates in lincoln are epically low. Center of big cities is just a no go for insurance. Only way you could save is by putting a different address really. I.e if your parents are split up could put the address as the one which is cheapest.

    I see you're from the US :p:

    It's no-claims bonus. It's something you earn if you haven't claimed on your insurance or had an accident in x amount of years.
