I have been at //skippy.org.uk for a while now, after posting about my eCar insurance problems, I started seeing more traffic for search terms such as:

  • Go Skippy Insurance
  • Skippy Insurance
  • Skippy car insurance
  • and even just: Go Skippy

It seems that for Go Skippy Insurance I come up second in google to GoSkippy, who are according to their site:

GoSkippy.com is a trading style of Southern Rock Insurance Company Ltd, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Commission in Gibraltar. This insurance is administered in the UK on behalf of Southern Rock Insurance Company Ltd, by Eldon Insurance Services Ltd. Eldon Insurance Services Ltd are authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. Firm reference number 477112

Now because I see them quite often on my analytics, I thought I would have a look at them, as when it comes up to renewing Puff’s insurance (or Puff’s replacement) it could be cool to have my name, and my birth name on the insurance documents.

What’s that Skippy? You fail to meet their requirements!?

Wondering what was on their FAQ I had a quick gander, unfortunately they have three questions on the FAQ:

  1. I live in a Mobile Home. Will you cover me?
  2. I live in a Caravan. Will you cover me?
  3. I live on a houseboat. Will you cover me?

To which the answer is the same

We will not insure people living on Houseboats, in Caravans & in Mobile Homes unless permanently living there for at least 3 years with the same postcode.

I don’t know if they know that what I live on/in is not a Mobile Home, Caravan, or a houseboat… but I suspect they won’t cover me as i live in a narrowboat.

Also nbHacker pointed out that if we were to rent our post code would change as well…

Oh well. Go Skippy, feck off!
