My Elan insurance has just fallen due, and, as I usually do, I shopped around. (Currently with Flux). Footman James were very competitive and flexible, but there was an unusual deal-breaker. As some of you know, I’m a magistrate, and I occasionally drive the Elan to court on fine days. Magistrates are not paid, but we can claim travel expenses (standard UK government mileage rate). According to FJ, that therefore counts as “paid employment”, and so the premium goes up by £40 a year - which suddenly makes it the most expensive option.

Shame, as I liked their policy and would otherwise have switched.

Magistrate is declared to Flux with no additional premium.
