Insurance renewal - break cover

Car insurance is up for renewal next week:
- 2 car household, only using 1 car rarely at the moment - I'm a named driver on other policy
- Does breaking policy cover cause an issue if I go to renew in a few months?

Policy renewal is circa €700, seems a waste to sign up now whilst car is effectively sitting there

Thanks

You keep no claims for 2 years.

They could give you any price they feel to be honest, shop around.

+1, my policy is up next week and my renewal quote was best by a long means over anything else I could obtain.
Renewal quote came to €482, same details and cover as a new customer was showing as €602 with next best from any other provider at €628. Was surprised as previous renewal quotes tried to shaft so always had to change providers.

Check with the insurers of the car you named on, that you are not required to maintain a separate policy in your own name.

If you suspend cover and the car is damaged or stolen you're stuffed.
