Why is car insurance so expensive in the UK!?

So i’m not driving yet, only applied for a provisional, i’m age 17.

How the hell am I suppose to afford this, am I doing something wrong haha :L

Prenancy Hospital & Best Maternity Insurance in San Diego?

Thank you for your good advices! I live around fashion valley, and now I’m self-employed, so I’m considering to go with Blue cross HMO plan which plan that have to choose my own physician and I don’t know how to start to choose. And I think it’s kind of expensive premium $480/month, but pay at delivery only $250, and each visit doctor only pay $25……But I have to pay premium $480 for 6 month (so I have to pay only premium total 15 months from start to delivery date = $480 x 15 = $7,200, which is not include deductable $2,000, so estimate around $9,200), So, I don’t know is it worth or not? Yes, I’ve heard good things about Scripps also…..or I should change to Scripps…….I don’t know that can I take a tour in Scripps or choose and talk with doctor? If anybody has any suggestion, please advise…..Thank you ladies 🙂

I was in an accident yesterday, and the owners of the vehicle at fault (the other people) have Progressive insurance. The driver of the vehicle, who was not on the insurance policy, had a suspended license. Will Progressive still cover the costs of the accident? Additional info: Both cars were totaled and my passenger and I went to the hospital for neck and back pains. The driver of the Progressive vehicle and her two kids are/were fine and needed no medical attention. Both vehicles are totaled.

How much does your motorcycle’s insurance rise when your bike has been stolen?

I’m asking this question for a friend who had some filthy chavs take his bike last weekend. It was a Yamaha XVS125 dragstar, so his insurance would have been quite cheap anyway but I was wondering how much more he will have to pay when he gets a new bike. Ideally if this has happened to you can you tell me … how much your insurance was before (and if your license had points etc) and how much it was when you got a new bike. Thx

I just moved from Massachusetts to California. Will my auto insurance/accident history get transfered?

I have heard that Massachusetts insurance companies are typically independent of California insurance companies. As a consequence, California insurance companies wont have access to my records in Mass. This would mean that my old claims/history won’t affect my new insurance policy in California. Can someone tell me if this true. Thanks

Why would my auto insurance increase?

The insurance on my 09 Mitsubishi Lancer went up over $100 since last year. I did not make any claims, was in any accidedents or anything like that. I did not move. I did not have anything done to the car which could cause the insurance to increase. So why would my insurance increase? I am over 40 yrs old and ever since I’ve been driving and with all the cars I’ve owned, most of them new, I never had an insurance increase on the same vehicle. It always decreased from year to year on the same vehicle. Never went up. I want to get some opinions here first and maybe get a legitimate explanation before I call my insurance agent and ask why they increase my rate or look to find a different insurer.

How do I get health insurance for my baby to be born in April?

I am self-employed, therefore have a limited health insurance plan just for me & my husband (In other words, no employer health insurance). To keep my premiums affordable, I have a very high deductible, no maternity coverage (I am paying cash to a midwife), very bare bones, in other words. Can anyone direct me as to what company/where to start? The one company I inquired with told me I could not even submit the application until my newborn was 32 days old. Is this standard practice? Thanks for your help. I really detest the subject altogether!

How to deal with car accident with no insurance?

FYI: this falls under New Mexico laws I drove a small 2 door honda civic and was on my way to school. There was alot of traffic being it was around lunch time and i was approaching an intersection when this dodge durango came out of nowhere and tried to cross in front of me. (I had the green light) I tried to brake and swerve but my driver side front end hit her passenger front end. I didnt have insurance at the time of the accident and she came and said it was completely her fault and that she went because the other drivers were waving her to go ahead and go. She was 19 with no DL so ended up getting 2 tickets. I, on the other hand,didnt get any tickets and took an ambulance to the E.R. being i was having bad chest pain so my husband emptied the car because it was pretty much totalled. So, since ive never been in an accident before, what steps can i take to make sure she pays for this? I have a disabled husband, a 6 year old child, and now without a car with injuries i cant afford to have right now.
