Thanks 'Same As', the NI version of autotrader is cr*p and was really starting to annoy me..! They might have noticed the increase in traffic from Ireland..!


Are the prices higher on the ni site compared to the british site

Nah its just some sort of domain error I suspect!

Eh Re: the prices,I doubt it??

As long as you register with a valid UK postcode, there wont be any redirecting.

It Aint that simple unfortunately....

When you type autotrader dot co dot uk into the address you are automatically re-directed to the northern Ireland website for no apparent reason! The Link above should do the trick until the problem is resolved!

On the autotrader NI site there is a link (Proceed to UK Site) near the right hand side to take you to the UK site which will not redirect you

Dont mean to be repeating myself but...

that link will take you to the autotrader dot co dot uk site.

Yea, I was surprised too, then I noticed this...

Once you click it and the site places cookies in your browser's cache, you'll be automatically redirected to the UK site.

traffic count from a service provider is given to Autotrader and the traffic should be re-directed (depending on source IP) to whatever autotrader site they want. (I think). looks like a marketing ploy to me.

It's pretty simple. Once you register with a UK address and postcode, you will not be redirected.
I registered a uk address on autotrader and set up automatic log in, so when I go to the site my details are all there and it's the site. With 416,140 cars for sale at the moment.
