Off the top of my head and in no particular order, Footman James, Lancaster, Adrian Flux, Chris Knott, Peter James, Carole Nash and Heritage. I think some of these insurers will offer discounts to TDC members.

I'm with Peter James, about £140 per annum to cover both my Triumphs (Dolomite and Spitfire) unlimited mileage, 3 drivers, full comp, SDP+Commuting, with breakdown cover.

Add to the list Classicline. Also, be very careful when taking out insurance for a Dolomite; some insurers won't accept Triumph Dolomite Club valuations, instead insisting on owners PAYING for a valuation by another club. We offer a FREE valuation service, which is accepted by many companies.

If you ean cost wise, as long as you are over 25 (or better 30), use it as a second car, don't live in Tower Hamlets or other high risk area, and a good driving record, pretty cheap. Expect £100-£150 from one of the specialist mentioned in this thread. My experience of Peter James is good....
