Is this an ok price for TPF&T I asked about fully comp but they don't offer it... I know it is to late to be asking for this year but just curious

    First Ireland do a comprehensive policy for around 200 plus or minus a few quid every year. Plus 25 for membership to Eircooled.

        I maybe wrong but I think you have a 30 days cooling off period with insurance just in case you change your mind

                    Hi Kevin,

                    I'll attend to that this evening and email you a letter of confirmation that your insurer will accept as proof. Your welcome pack will follow by post. Thanks for your payment and welcome to the club BTW!

                        It is bad that such cars are getting in accidents. This is the history of the United States. The worst part of this is that no one would like to buy such a car, and I don't think that the owners would like to pay some additional money for insurance. I don't understand why the cars that have been in an accident need more money for insurance in the USA. I have read some articles about this on moneyexpert.com and still don't understand. In some accidents, the safety carcass isn't even deteriorated a little bit, so it is still a safe car.

                          I have since 2009 my insurance with First Ireland (since 2012 for a second car as well) but each year they seemingly forget that I am a member of Eircooled and charge at renewal time the full amount (insurance + full administration fee) and I have to remind them that there should be a reduced administration fee because of my Eircooled membership.. It happened again today.

                          So my question: how much is the reduced administration fee any of you insured with First Ireland is charged with currently?

                          On 19/02/2021 trev posted here that it is Euro 25.00 - I had to pay last year a seemingly incorrect rate of Euro 20.00, because I got this evening this message from First Ireland:
                          "The reason the current rate is higher than last year is the fact your insurers had not offered the correct rate on the eircool membership so your insurance had been cheaper than it should have been for the last few years."

                          But this year they now charge me not Euro 25.00 but instead Euro 30,13 - what do you pay as reduced administration fee?

                            Hi Rolheine

                            I didn't state that First Ireland's admin fee was E25. I was pointing out that you add the E25 Eircooled membership fee to the cost of your car insurance if that's the only reason you're joining Eircooled.

                            But we all know you get more for your Eircooled Membership fee than just cheap insurance.

                            Honestly I don't know what First Ireland's admin fee is. Other than renewing my insurance with them every year I have nothing to do with them.

                            I hope you get the issue resolved to your satisfaction.

                              Hi Trev,

                              thanks for your reply.

                              it is easy to calculate the administration fee when you got your renewal notice:

                              usually on the first page the total amount you have to pay to First Ireland is written, but then some pages further on the insurance company proper (in my case AIG) states the amount of the insurance premium - so you simply have to subtract this amount from the total you have to pay and such got the administration fee First Ireland is charging you. (and I call this "administration fee" because years ago someone from First Ireland referred to the amount as that).

                              Somebody may wonder why I am bothering about this relatively small amount - it is actually not the increase by 50% what I now have to pay more (administration fee) in comparison to last year, and not the increase by 20% in comparison to the Euro 25 you posted, but the additional 13 cent which made me curious - why additional 13 cent?

                              Roland
