Car Insurance- Classic, Kit, Modified, Performance, Prestige And Private Car Insurance

You’ve probably been looking for car insurance quotes and car insurance comparisons. Whether hard or soft top, when it comes to car insurance, you’ll find Principal Insurance have it covered. Working with the UK’s leading private car and specialist motor insurers we offer not just great value cover but protection that’s specifically designed to protect the kind of car you own.

So, classic car enthusiasts can benefit from low mileage and laid up policies and, by taking advantage of our free agreed value scheme, ensure their car is properly protected so that, should the worst happen they receive a full and fair settlement. We can also offer you zero-deduction salvage retention rights, like-for-like replacement or repair of modifications, discounts for membership of recognised owners clubs and arrange wedding hire, rally and track day cover. There is also an option to include extensive UK and European breakdown and accident insurance.

Similar benefits can be found for  drivers of high performance and prestige cars who need not pay premiums as supercharged as their vehicles. That’s because we understand that whilst your car might come with more horsepower than a Grand National winners’ reunion, you’re likely treat it with as much care and attention as a champion jockey, taking due care to avoid theft and road risks.

We can even source dedicated kit and replica car insurance which will protect your vehicle as you build it – including goods in transit cover for when you collect and transport components – offer agreed value once it’s completed and then, of course, protect it against road, rally and track day risks. Again discounts are available if you curb your mileage and/or are a member of a recognised owners club.

Naturally we can arrange highly competitive premiums for every level of everyday private car insurance, with a range of benefits available to help you keep costs down, including protected no claims bonus and voluntary excess schemes. You’ll find too that we welcome young drivers and can offer specialist cover for people with speeding or other motoring convictions.

Finally we can help you save not just money but hassle and time through our excellent multi-vehicle insurance. This enables you to protect any combination of car, motorcycle, motorhome, truck or van on a single policy.
