Great experience with Autosure policies

As an owner of several European vehicles from the 2000s, I've had Autosure policies on all 3 and have been very pleased. Although I'd rather not be making claims at all(!), the policies have more than paid for themselves and the process has been painless. Get the pre-purchase check done, get the regular servicing done (which you should anyway!), understand the policy and USE it. Make sure your garage is an approved repairer for the MBI provider too. The value may not be there if you're running a Corolla but for many other vehicle types MBIs make great sense. Autosure is an excellent provider and I will continue to recommend them.
