I have €1,300 saved for a first car. Preferably looking for a Polo or Golf with a smaller engine but anything will do. What kind of insurance would I be looking at for a young driver on something like that?

Could I insure an imported Jimny?


I have a question in relation to the new Suzuki Jimny. From what I gather it is not being sold in Ireland for emissions reasons. However, if you were to import one from the UK and pay VRT etc would you be able to get Irish insurance? Is it road legal and all that?

Any high-performance insurance specialists?


I’m planning to buy a Jaguar F-Type R (5.0-litre V8) and shopping around for insurance. So far all insurers including my current insurer refused to quote me because of the engine size; is there any insurer out there that specialises in high performance cars?

Many thanks!
