Classic Car Insurance Age

What is a modern classic?

If your car is 10 years or older and is not used for everyday use it may well qualify for one of our classic policies. A classic car does not have to have been built or registered in 1950s or 1960s to qualify for lower, cheaper rates of classic car insurance. Modern classic cars are as important and the classic cars of the 1970s, 1980s,  1990s  and 2000 onwards are now becoming regarded as the new classic car of the future. This means that cheaper rates of insurance are available, providing they are used as genuine classic cars, i.e. as a second car and not as the main car on the road. There are no hard and fast rules which define modern classics, so it is always worth calling us to ask.

Collectable marques such as MG, Mercedes-Benz, Triumph, BMW, Bentley and Porsche may all qualify, together with other long standing car manufacturers, such as Fiat, Volvo, Saab, Toyota. Newer Fords and Jaguars may well be considered as modern classics too. In general, if the car has a bona-fide car club behind it and the vehicle is deemed to be ‘collectable’ then it may well qualify for one of our competitive classic car insurance schemes.
