Hmm my experience with looking for any suppliers that say "senior" or similar is the price is higher. But possibly I am not good at it !!
What I do is actually get a couple of quotes emailed to me and then compare them.

Honey, a sub company of RACQ, prices are much more reasonable then the big companies, all our insurances are thru them now.

Since a quote in December on my tug, RACQ unashamably quoted premium up 32%,
excess additionally up from $2000 to $5000.

They even showed the persentage on the form!

No prangs or fines ever.

 No, insurance companies have many ways of trimming the pay out on agreed value policies, the extra you pay is generally not worth it.

Anyone that does not shop around come renewal time is bound to pay more, as I found out recently. The renewal was up by about 30% on my car. After I rang and told the insurance company that they were way over the top, they offered me a further discount that made the premium still about 50% more than a competitor's offer. Guess what I did?

 The loyalty tax.

It's only small bikkies but I saved $50 on my NRMA CTP last year. Knowing they do not really reward existing clients I entered my details online to get a quote for a new policy. For identical information, the quote was $50 cheaper than the offered renewal. Hopefully the loophole has not been closed when I try it again this year.
