i use ecar as they do pay as you go, so you dont have a deposit and they dont seam to be to bad on price aswell.

when using like money supermarket and people like that i cant say i have noticed them adding money on but wat i tend to do it see who comes up cheaper then go to that company site with out using the link on the compare site.

adrianflux are only cheap if you hav a modded car. good if you have a engine swop

Same here, they must have taste and like french cars :)

As far as insurance goes just get as many quotes as you can. What works for one person may not be good for the next.

I would have said Flux, but Elephant have given me a a better quote than flux (fully comp too) so unless Flux will match it (or go cheaper) i shall be with Elephant! :)

for me to insure the 1.4 it is around 16-1700 on average... i can see why so many idiots dont bother with insurance now. i am now looking at the 1.25 fezza's and when im old enough then i will get a 2 litre or maybe something better, and in a couple of years who knows what everyone will be doing? been looking at zetec turbo and doesnt look amazingly hard so might have a go at that.

Insurance is a fooking joke.

I pay less for the Pulsar than I did with the Fiesta, just by changing companies - figure that one out.

The only advice is to shop around and play them off against each other. You'll notice they always ask for your best price so far...
