I'm assuming you're after Spanish figures ? I can tell you my UK one, but I suspect it won't be much help :lol:

I don´t think you´ll gather much useful information by knowing how much each person is paying for their insurance as it depends on so many factors about the vehicle, the person who is being insured, their driving record etc etc.

the only thing I could say is that I don´t pay more each year.

years ago I always stayed with the same insurer, but nowadays it´s worth comparing prices shortly before the renewal date and swopping insurers each year if neccessary.
I use an agent who each year automatically checks and compares prices before the renewal dates and tells me if he finds something better value for money for me.

it´s a shame, but being a good, faithful customer doesn´t pay off nowadays, you have to change insurers, change banks etc etc as they give better deals to new customers than they do existing customers.
being faithful is thing of the past (and not only with insurance and banks :wink: )

if you drive a pram get insurance !! :wtf:

Linea Directa for a nearly 7 year old Fiat Doblo was €295 for 3rd party fire & theft. I got a quote from Zurich for next year of €215.

Does that include the equivalent of UK RAC / AA protection? If not What happens when you break down en route? :?:

As Julian says, staying faithful is a thing of the past with insurance, despite what they might claim.

Always worth getting several quotes. If cheaper than your current insurer, go to them and quote the cheapest you have had. They may well match it.

Don't know if breakdown cover is mandatory or not but it has always been included in any car insurance I have had in Spain automatically. Maybe I have been paying extra for it without realising it!
I've got an inferiority complex, but it's not a very good one!
