My car was stolen - why has my car insurance gone up?

After my car was stolen I am now trying to buy another one after six months. I am now quoted some £300 more for insurance. Why has the price gone up?

It is because you have made a claim and are an increased risk. You have probably lost your no claims bonus too.
