NI Car Insurance Refund

#1
I know there is a system in place where you can get a refund for the difference between NI car insurance and UK car insurance. I know the address is in London but I am not sure where. Can someone tell me the postcode that is used please?

Whatever? Good luck on your tour, I am sure Northern Ireland is lucky to have someone with your deep level of knowledge and understanding of the situation there to help out, knob.

Out of interest, why is it that the rate of difference is SW1 London? Shouldnt you be able to claim to, say, your hometown or on a representative rate for the rest of the UK. I know its being picky, but central London isnt exactly the cheapest place for car insurance, and if i was still living in imbreds ville, essex it would be alot cheaper.

But then i suppose that would cost more, and actually be fair. Never mind.

I have been over here for about 5 years on and off over the last 10, and have seen the province at its best and worst. Funnily enough the people I work and socialise with here much prefer it if I do not refer to the mainland as 'Britain', as they probably feel more British than I do. Perhaps I should have said mainland in my message, granted, but I'm the one who is stationed here and will say what I like. Please do not be under the gross misapprehension that you have the right to pass judgment on me in any way.

Hit the nail on the head there Boney, I come from a rural area in the middle of East Anglia, so the Powers That Be would have to refund me about 80% of what I pay now. I am sure SW London will keep that figure nice and low. Tight buggers... :(

Northern Ireland is in the UK, I think you mean GB.
Im afraid you are wrong. Northern Ireland is not part of the UK but part of Great Britain.

Sorry Disco old chap. But it's the other way round - we live in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

This is the ARRSE website mate, not www.wetliberals.com - therefore we have the right - nay...the duty - to pass arbitrary judgement on anyone and everyone :D

For those of you who' passport is sitting in the desk drawer next to you, refer to the front cover - It quite clearly states:

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Out of interest, I am currently undertaking legal proceedings against a particular insurance company, who's policy document clearly states that they will provide insurance, upon paying the premuim, within the Territorial Limits of the United Kingdom. They still maintain that this does not include Northern Ireland, but I am assured by my legal advisor that as it is no specifically EXCLUDED within the policy document, they (whether willingly or not) DO provide insurance in NI.

Stand by for a swift change to their policy document when they lose the case. I would advise anyone in Northern Ireland (or those moving there soon) to check very carefully the exact wording of the policy document.

Hey I have no problems with that, I do the same on message boards all over the place. I do, however, get bored of pedantic ********* who spend hours scouring forums looking for someone to have a go at due to their mothers not loving them. It's not healthy to live with so much bitterness, maybe BBR needs to go and get a girlfriend?

Ghostie, it might be worth pointing out to them that EU rules demand that any motor insurance issued within the EU has to, by law, provide the legal minimum (ie third party) cover in ALL member states. If they are refusing that cover for NI they are breaking the law.
