Hi Jason,

Lovely to hear from you and really pleased that you've taken a policy out with Lancaster.

Make sure you let our guys know next year, when your renewal is due and we will ensure your discount is applied.

Regards

Andrew

Fellow VW owners. Please click on the reviews below before talking insurance out with Lancaster. You can decide for yourself then if you want them to have your money.

http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews103987.html

I must say having been completely screwed by Lancaster insurance this last week I'm unable to recommend.

After taking out a policy and having had the car just less than 2 months they slapped a 70 cancelation fee plus a 15 broker cancelation fee. The car died so it was sold for spares.

The policy for the full year cost 250 and I ended up paying 152 to cancel. Plus the 50 odd quid deposit and first months instalment I'd already paid. Lancaster took almost the full amount of 12 months cover from me. They provided around 6 weeks insurance. But cancel and you pretty much pay for the whole year anyway!

I've used many classic insurance companies over the years but never been penalised so heavily for cancelling my policy.


Flux or RH are much better to deal with.


EDIT: To make things worse I continue to get texts telling me to contact the office urgently to make a payment! I'VE PAID YOU - YOU FOOLS!!

Hi Karmannghia,

Sorry to hear that you’ve had a bad experience when cancelling your policy with Lancaster.

If you could PM me your contact details, I’d be happy to chat through the cancellation with you and go through any questions you may have.

Kind regards

Andrew

Hi why have underwriters suddenly decided that if you are under 21 you can't insure a classic vehicle as a 2nd vehicle? Thanks in advance for your answer

Hi, I have an import but your web site doesn't quote for these vehicles but probably 70per cent of VWs are imports

Hi Jacosmotor,

Thank you for your post.

The question regarding whether your vehicle is an import is a standard eligibility question that is asked for all quotations, however, Lancaster does specialise in imported vehicles so this should not be a problem.

Please do call our contact centre on 01480 587020 and one of our staff will be happy to assist you.

Best wishes

Andrew

Hi RuSt66,

Thank you for your post and you have raised a very good point. This is a question that has been asked for quite some time now, as to why it is so difficult for young drivers to obtain a quotation for a classic vehicle.

There are a number of policies on the market that will cater for under-21 year olds on classic cars, so it may be more about managing expectations on price and benefits. Young male drivers are statistically in one of the highest risk categories for claims in the UK and this can make insurers more cautious when offering specialist products.

At Lancaster we look at young driver, classic policies, on an individual basis so please feel free to call our quoteline on 01480 587020 and one of our agents will be happy to go through a quotation with you.

I hope the above is helpful to you

Best wishes

Andrew
