I've got a family policy, covers me and my wife, with GEM, cost about 」120 but covers the named drivers for any vehicles. No age limit on the vehicles either  (you've got to look out for age clauses!) and they cover vans too. I've called them out a couple of times too with no problems.

We do it with Green Flag via the caravan and motor home club as there is no vehicle age limit unlike the standard mayday from Green Flag, personal cover for both of us in any vehicle 」92 this year I think it was.

You most certainly are! Try A Plan or 2Gether. Both will quote you at least half that.

Unless you are leaving out something like 11 points and multiple DUI's  :-X  then yes you are, I am roughly same age, half the agreed value, but twice the mileage, 140hp = 」90  -I get a discount on the admin fee as I have 2 other cars and a house with them - 1) they are usually competitive (sometimes they need a push  :D ) and 2) because they pick up the phone when you call.

Please note as well that it is not necessary for you to have to go uncovered during this time... if you plan to hold off renewal and go through the process of SORNing your vehicle because you don't plan on using it then please consider Laid-Up cover!
Laid-Up cover means you will still be covered for Accidental Damage, Fire and Theft (no road risk) and it is a low-cost insurance option that we have access to with a few of our insurers.
