It tends to be more unusual or rare cars that can get classic insurance from my experience. As someone said AXA need the car to be a minimum of 20 years but Autoline will look at examples from 15+

I have a Porsche Boxster insured with them. Not exactly rare but not a huge volume of them out there.

As another posted said, look at some cars that you really would consider and then give them a call to see. they are helpful. Just remember you need to have 'regular' insurance in your own name on a daily driver car to qualify for it.

I went through Campion Insurance for my 97 Mini Cooper.
€260 with a 5000 mile limit. Very good to deal with.


Is that comprehensive?

I've had several classic cars >15 years old but <20 years old on classic policies through First Ireland, and can still add 15 year old cars to my policy, but they don't do it anymore for new business

I believe Autoline in the North still do, but the policies are not cheap

Sorry lads, forgot I posted.

My 3 are with First Ireland. Roughly about €500 for all 3 (I only added another halfway through the year so don't have a full yearly price, that's all fully comp.

My '99 Boxster is insured through First Ireland fully comp for €289, no need for a normal car insured in my name and even building up no claims bonus on this

Not available for new business though unless your car is at least 20 years old...
