Have costs just jumped up?

Morning all,
Ive just been playing around on comparison sites to see what it'd cost me for my renewal to change from an ES to an EX.
Doing a base quote for my ES, came in at over 900, when my renewal in Dec was only 800!?

Changing the quote to an EX changes it to 1200, and then adding on an extra 1 year no claims (for when i renew) only drops it to 1000.

Whats going on?

Anyone else finding this?

Thanks.

The fact it's a new car to you will see the biggest jump as they see ot as more at risk for every year I have a car it drops by 200 quid plus the ex I believe is a higher insurance group due to the extra goodies in it

More claims on the car in total, more burglaries and thefts in your area or maybe as simple as a rise in all premiums due to claims especially "whiplash" claims

Never claimed.
Brand new post code (within the last 2 years)
Third one is most plausable.

Still very annoying as its making motoring more and more expensive to do.

Not you claiming other people claiming in the same style car for example a vauxhalls corsa is more expensive to insure than a fiat panda due to te people that drive corsas meaning more claims.


Post code depends on this years crime figures

Still annoying.
Just about affordable, but with petrol/diesel being high too, long gone are the days where i can just go for a drive for the sake of driving.

I want to know why people haven't campaigned against the fuel rises the last few years like they have in the past.
144-152p per litre is outrageous!

I drive as part of my contract at work and they mentioned they were lowering mileage from 40p to 35p meaning I'd lose out on hundreds when all prices are increasing I told my boss I'd leave it they lowered our the prices are insane!

The thing that's most annoying is that the breakdown of fuel costs, has 70-80p of the cost as government tax!
So we get taxed on pay, taxed on road usage AND get most of the price of fuel taxed too. Not to mention the rising costs of insurance!

Its a shame really, as reasons like this prevent good decent people from 'just having a drive for the fun of it'.
All because of A) some right wallys driving up premiums for others & B) Cameron & co' getting greedy.

Claim the rest (you can claim 45p for the first 10,000 miles, then 25p after that for every mile) via a p87 tax for working expenses form (I have as currently an IT contractor).

I was paid 34p per mile by my last umbrella, and am claiming back the 11p difference for every mile travelled, when april 5th comes round.

Eco display
Switch from an ES to EX end of last year and my renewal is over 250 more.

As much as I hate the high fuel prices the recent rises cannot be blamed on tax as the last one was vat over a year ago. The recent rises are just greed by the oil companies. when the duty goes up again in august they'll put there bit on it no doubt.
