I've no idea about a log, sorry.

The suggestion that one may claim that the main driver was driving instead is no different to allowing an uninsured person drive the car today, then claim that it was an insured party driving should an accident take place.

Ultimately, insuring someone under 25 with red key access would be a question of trust, the same as it is when insuring a single person to drive the vehicle and believing that they won't lend it to someone else and claim the insured was driving should an accident occur.
If the underwriters don't want to accept an under-25 with red key access that's fine - it's their prerogative and the terms they specify need to be adhered to or declined through taking your business elsewhere; I do, however, wonder what the point of Volvo developing a red key is if insurers don't recognise its capability and underwrite accordingly..

Not the cheapest for me this year, but I will still try you next year you never know.

Although one thing, for being a Volvo OC insurer for so long the lady I spoke to had no clue on what the Polestar optimisation was, took a while for her to find it on the internet, but then said we do do a lot of these.

She was pleasant enough.

I suspect you spoke to our newest recruit as the others will know for sure. While many of us do have a natural interest in the cars, some take a little while to get used to all the variations of marques/models/trims/performance levels/factory options/upgrade options, etc. Please forgive her while she catches up.

I'm sorry we couldn't get there for you this year.

Just purchased an xc90 and after doing some quotes I was shocked at the
Price increase over my previous Saab 95 aero.

Phoned up ck insurance and the lady had to go away and come back to me after the onscreen quotes not being too competitive. Came back with a great quote that beat all others by some margin. Nice one!

I did go back to my current insurer who miraculously managed to drop the price down to within £35 but still switched.

"Helpful and efficient service - have made significant saving and will be using again for second car and buildings & contents policies next January. Very pleased indeed, many thanks." J Eagles, Trustpilot

"100% recommend!!" D4MOST, FiestaSTOC

"Easy to quote and great price" P Jones, Trustpilot

"Brilliant – helpful, professional broker and a very fair price for good cover. Well done Chris Knott Insurance!!" N Bloom, Trustpilot

"I'd been with ****** **** for several years but latterly their renewal prices, militant attitude to loyal customers and general ‘couldn't care less’ demeanour just pushed me over the edge. Switched to Chris Knott earlier this year and couldn't have been happier - very good price/package, lovely attitude and despite me changing cars several times since, nothing ever feels like it's an issue with these guys. I'll be swapping my wife's car to them too once her current policy (also with ****, sadly...) expires in December." TurboDave, Volvo Owners Forum

"Cheaper than all other quotes for car insurance with the same level of cover!" Ms Guest, Trustpilot

…and there’s plenty more positive feedback on Trustpilot where we’ve been rated ‘Excellent’.
