can anyone recommend a competitive insurance company for cars on the costa blance. I have heard of Linea directa and Knight insurance. Would be grateful for any advice.

Of course, the acid test for any insurance company is how well they perform when you need them most, in other words when you make a claim. Although we have been with Linea Directa for four years now, we’ve never had to make a claim. In all other respects, they have been very good with English speaking operators and documentation in English as well. Premiums were also a pleasant surprise with fullycomp on a 2 years old family saloon being about 430 euros for 2 named drivers. (full no-claims discount was allowed from a uk policy as well)

I fully agree with AndyH about Linea directa. What is vital is the registration of your vechile, if its UK, than It has to be insured by a UK company ( EU transport policy) I beleive Knight Insurance can arrange for UK regisitred cars to be Insured through Gibralter but the premium are silly.
Five years ago I was offered a third part quote for a small soft top of Pound 2000, this was after my full no claims ( The vechile had a UK registration )I than got my vechile registered in Spain and now pay around Euro 350, third party fire & theft, through linea directa.

We insure both our cars through Abbeygate insurance, they are part of (or maybe partners with) Norwich Union in the UK. We’ve not had any cashes but they seem fairly reasonable, staff are English and its aimed mainly at ex-pats

Thanks for all the replies – really appreciate them. I’m going for a Ford Ka 1.6 value E6750 would I be better fully comp or third party? For fully comp I’ve been quoted E574 with one company and E462 with another company.
Again would be grateful for comments.
Many thanks 😀
