Any vehicle that's over 40 years old has officially attained classic – or heritage vehicle – status.

If your Toyota is a little younger than that, you can still insure it as a classic. We look at things like how it's used and where it's stored to help us find the right cover for your circumstances.

To protect your vehicle for the future with modern classic car insurance, call us today.

Classic cars can be defined as those over 40 years old, exempt from tax and MOT.

Modern classics are usually aged between 10 and 30 years old. Built to more modern standards, many were used as everyday cars but now numbers are dwindling, collector interest is on the rise.

Every classic car owner and their motor is unique, which is why there's no one price fits all as far as classic policies go.

Your premiums might cost a little less than your regular car insurance because classic car owners tend to take better care of their cars and cover fewer miles.

Insurers will calculate your premiums based on:

  • Where you live and work
  • Your age
  • Your driving history
  • Agreed policy excess
  • Annual mileage
  • Any modifications you've made to your car
  • Where you store it when not in use
  • The optional extras you choose

You might be able to save some money on protection for classic cars by making a few changes to how you drive, care for and store your Toyota, including:

  • Lowering your annual mileage
  • Paying your premiums yearly instead of monthly
  • Choosing any policy extras carefully
  • Storing your classic in a safe, secure place
  • Insuring more than one car with us

Speak to our team to see how these changes could affect your insurance costs.
