I had a thought.... I am going on maternity leave for 9 months. My car insurance includes business cover plus I work in art/performing arts so insurance is higher because they think I transport celebs rather than paint & costumes etc. Should/could I change my policy for these months to no no business cover & occupation housewife? I know that it might not exactly be a huge amount but any bit of saving would be appreciated. watch the pennies... as they say.

I asked my insurance about this, but I got the impression that they would be more likely to load you as a housewife(read air head)hmm. I left mine(ligitimately)as employed even though I'm quite possibly going to be employed but not at work earning for up to 6 years.
Why don't you phone them and ask them.
