    Car Insurance

    Anyone know or recommend a car insurance company who doesn't mind divers, i.e carrying tanks?

    I've never even been asked about this let alone know anyone who has. Even after checking the small print in my insurance T & Cs, I can't find anything that says I cant carry tanks.
    Just out of curiosity, what prompted you to ask the question in the 1st place?

    I can't remember how the question came up in the 1st place, but I had to tell my current insurer that we carry them and they were happy with carrying tanks. However, when it came to renewing the company with the best price would not cover if carrying tanks. I shopped around and found a few who won't cover if carrying tanks. I think that insurers nowadays tend to put the onus on the customer to declare anything they may think could affect the insurance.

    Are we not covered to carry as long as we are displaying the 'compressed air' and 'oxidising agent' if nitrox ready?

    question 2, does this mean I need to keep quiet when renewing/getting new insurance over the next couple of days : )

    As far as I know the compressed air sticker is only mandatory if you're transporting cylinders as part of your work. For recreational divers they're not mandatory.

    As I said, as far as I know.

    But how do we know what may or may not affect the insurance ? We don't work in the insurance industry, so we have no way of knowing.

    Thats like saying "I didn't know I had do have insurance so its OK for me to not bother"

    Privlidge not in our case £212.00 compared with Car Insurance, Cheap Motor Car Insurance, Travel Insurance, Pet Insurance Quotes Online UK - Swiftcover have just insured my one of those for £131 fully comp for the two of us felt i couldn't really argue the previous insurer Budget having quoted £240

    i didn't mention dive cylinders, never even thought of it, what risk are we taking about 3rd party liability, the cylinders themselves causing the colission or their being stolen - if they're covered by your household for loss whats it got to do with them anyway??
