Classic Austin and Classic Mini Insurance

Peter Best Insurance was established in 1985 to meet the insurance needs of classic car owners, specifically members of the numerous classic car clubs across the UK. Our Classic car insurance policies are tailored for specific makes and models including, of course, classic Austins and Minis, alongside many more iconic marques of yesteryear!

At Peter Best we understand that classic Austin and classic Mini owners require specialist insurance cover for their beloved classic cars. Our experience shows that owners who are members of a classic car club really care for and value their vehicles, so we offer car club insurance discounts to members of bona-fide UK classic car clubs.

So, if you are a member of the Austin Counties Car Club, Vintage Austin Register, Austin A30/A35 Owners’ Club, British Mini Club or any other Austin related classic car club, we will apply a car club member discount to your classic car insurance policy.

Peter Best’s Classic Austin and classic Mini insurance policies come with free legal cover, free agreed value and a choice of limited mileage options as part of our comprehensive policy cover, so you can rest assured your pride and joy is in good hands. We also cover for a wide range of vehicle modifications as well as ‘laid up’ cover for non-road use or restoration purposes.

After 35 years in business, UK Car Clubs remain the core focus for Peter Best and we continue to support many classic car clubs through sponsorship and advertising, helping these organisations continue their fabulous work.

We very much appreciate that classic car club representatives are predominately volunteers, dedicating their time and energies into preserving motoring history, and so we’re proud to support classic car clubs, their officers, and members.

Peter Best Insurance has a real passion for Classic Cars – indeed, we were founded to service the needs of the specialist Classic Car market.

Today, over 30 years later, our business has expanded so that we can now offer a wide range of insurance products – for cars, for homes, for business and more. But it's a love of Classic motoring that still guides our business and the bespoke service ethic we developed working with Classic Car Owners and Owners Clubs, still drives us to this day.

We also value very highly the reputation we’ve earned amongst Classic Austin and Classic Mini Car Club Owners and we’re proud that we now look after large numbers of these Car Club members and can offer discounts on their insurance policies.

Peter Best has special schemes covering veteran, vintage and more recent Austin models, including those from the 1970s and 1980s. And, as part of our Austin and Classic Mini Insurance policies, laid up cover and agreed mileage options are available as standard.

Quite simply... whatever insurance product you're looking for... our service is still classic.
