Cheaper motor insurance?

I pay £117 pm for motor insurance and was wondering if any of you can recommend a cheaper company. I have never claimed but because my car was my daughter's and has just become mine, I can't claim no claims for a discount so it seems I have to pay a higher price. Short of trawling the net and filling in hundreds of forms does anybody know of a cheaper company?

There should be companies out there who will give you a discount to get your business - have you tried speaking to a local broker? We did this when the cost for DS was very high for his first car and they were able to get him a cheaper rate. We use a broker - on line and telephone - for the van OH still has - let me know if you would like their name.

Admiral is quite good if you have more than one car in the family BUT check the rates they charge on phone calls - suspect this is where the profit is made...

Grummy Speak to the AA or Kwikfit. They are both brokers rather than insurance company and they shop the market for you to get a good quote They can be contacted by phone or online.
