I am looking to buy a car which would only be used at weekends. I currently insure my main car which i use every day for work but want a second car as a bit of fun. Can anybody point me in any direction with regards to best way to insure etc ?
Appreciate any help

Depending on what type of car you have, there are a few options.
If it is a Classic Car (-1990 [at a push]) you would be better off insuring this as your second vehicle based on 0 No Claims Bonus as these are used on the other car. This type of insurance is based on the year of the car and the mileage. 1500, 3000, 5000 typically. You should pick up the insurance for around the £100 mark for the year from a decent insurer.
If it is a newer car, some might suggest the 'Pay as you Drive' insurance with Norwich Union. I wouldn't recommend this at this stage because of it being in 'early stages' but others swear by it, so it is something to be considered. On some new cars, you may be able to put this with a scheme known as 'Cherished Car' (whereby this is usually relatively high value, low mileage and garaged). Best off enquiring at a broker about this.
Is this car a kit car by any chance? Come back with more details and we can point you in the right direction! :)
