As you’ve landed here then you’ve no doubt been busy online trying to compare classic car insurance quotes.

But because yours is not just any old car, you want to make sure you get not simply cheap classic car insurance, but the most appropriate cover for your particular motor and motoring needs.

At Principal, we get that. We understand that it’s not average, not standard, not merely a car.  It’s a project, a pride and joy, a passion.

That’s why we take time to talk to you to so we understand your car’s history, the time and money invested in its restoration, how and where you use it and how much it’s really worth.

When you use our free Agreed Value service you’ll find we do much of the graft for you, working with our extensive panel of classic car insurance underwriters to find the right deal for you.*

  • Up to 10% discount for membership of recognised owners club.**
  • Limited mileage discounts.**
  • Free agreed value assessment.
  • Salvage retention rights.***
  • Multi car insurance.

Because we know your car is more than the sum of its parts, should it be stolen and/ or recovered or be a write-off, you can be offered salvage retention rights. However, should it prove economically repairable we’ll help you find a respected and approved repairer to restore it to its former glory.

Our classic car insurance specialists are also on hand to assist not just in finding you the right policy at the right price, but by supporting you should you need claim, add a vehicle or make other amendments to your cover.
