I purchased some Gap Insurance through Duncan at Riviera for my new BMW M440!I am absolutely delighted with the service I received and also the price I paid, BMW quoted me a figure that was 5 times higher than the amount I paid Riviera for effectively the same product. So for anyone looking for Gap cover all I can say is give Duncan a ring and you won't be disappointed !!

Absolutely FIRST CLASS! I had to arrange new building insurance very quickly, after purchasing the freehold, and Tom was so brilliant. He sourced the market, and came back with a great offer, which I accepted. He was so easy to deal with, so professional, and so helpful. Very impressed with Riviera's service, and would not hesitate to recommend them. I shall definitely be using them for all my future insurance needs.

Riviera brought some calm ground into my stressful property purchase process. Tom set up a fairly priced building insurance ready for exchange of contracts. He was friendly, reassuring and easy to contact. Just what I needed. Thanks.

I have found Riviera Insurance brokers to provide a good quality and professional service. I have used them for some two years now for insurance on my buy to let properties and they have always sought and found the most competitive policies for me to ensure that I don't spend over the odds on the insurance I am forced to purchase. I would highly recommend the service as well as the professional way they deal with me as their customer.

Highly satisfied, very patient with me and made everything clear. They spend ages on the phone with me ensuring I had the right policy and I never felt rushed. When I had to cancel the policy when I left the trade they were equally as friendly and helpful. Top marks!

What is sports car insurance and why do you need it?

Sports car insurance is a specialised policy designed explicitly for high-performance vehicles. It protects against various risks that are more likely to affect sports cars due to their unique features. Here’s why you need sports car insurance:

High-Value Protection: Sports cars are often expensive and their repairs can be costly. Insurance safeguards you against unforeseen expenses.

Performance Risks: With powerful engines, sports cars can pose higher risks on the road. Insurance covers potential liabilities in case of accidents.

Theft and Vandalism: Sports cars can be tempting targets for thieves and vandals. Insurance protects you against these unfortunate events.

What type of sports car insurance do I need?

It is crucial to select the appropriate sports car insurance for complete protection. Riviera Insurance provides the following cover options:

Comprehensive Insurance: This provides the widest cover, including damages to your car, third-party liabilities, and theft.

Third-Party Only: Covers damages caused to others but not to your car.

Third-Party, Fire, and Theft: Includes third-party cover and protection against fire and theft.

How can I get cheaper sports car insurance?

While sports car insurance may be perceived as expensive, there are ways to make it more affordable:

Security Measures: Installing anti-theft devices and alarms can lower your insurance premium.

Safe Driving: Maintaining a clean driving record may qualify you for discounts.

Mileage Limitations: If you don’t drive your sports car often, opting for a mileage limit may reduce the premium.

What factors affect the cost of sports car insurance?

The cost of sports car insurance is influenced by various factors, including:

Car Value: The more valuable the car, the higher the insurance premium will be.

Driver’s Age: Younger drivers may be charged higher premiums because they are perceived as having a higher risk of accidents.

Driving History: Having a clean driving record can result in lower insurance costs.

Car Performance: Vehicles with higher performance capabilities may result in higher insurance premiums.

Location: Insurance prices may differ depending on where you reside and where your car is typically parked.

Modifications: Any modifications made to the car after its initial purchase can also impact the insurance premium.

Make the most out of your sports car insurance with our optional upgrades and add-ons:

Track Day cover: Safeguard your vehicle during track events by extending your cover.

Agreed Value: Securely insure your sports car for a pre-agreed value to avoid depreciation-related losses.

Frequently asked questions

Sports car insurance is a specialised type of coverage designed for high-performance vehicles. You need it to protect your sports car against potential damages, theft, or accidents, as regular insurance may not provide adequate cover for these unique vehicles.

Sports car insurance typically comes with higher premiums due to the increased risk associated with powerful and fast vehicles. Sports cars are more prone to accidents and theft, making the coverage different from standard car insurance.

The cost of sports car insurance is influenced by various factors, including the car’s make and model, engine size, the driver’s age and driving history, location, and the intended usage of the vehicle.

Insuring a modified sports car is possible, but it might be more challenging and expensive. Make sure to inform your insurer about any modifications made to the vehicle to ensure proper cover.

Sports car insurance typically offers the same types of cover as regular car insurance, such as liability, collision, comprehensive, and uninsured/underinsured motorist cover.

Sports car insurance can cover everyday use, but some policies may have limitations or higher premiums for regular usage. It’s essential to discuss your specific driving habits with the insurer.

Some insurers may offer discounts for sports car insurance, such as multi-car policies, safe driving records, and security features like alarms and tracking devices.

In the event of a total loss, the insurance company will typically pay you the current market value of the car, minus any deductibles.

Yes, most sports car insurance policies allow you to add additional drivers, but their driving history and age could impact the premium.
