Westfield! Westfield! Westfield!

What a wonderful Westfield world, we love to keep are adverts fresh and what better way than to reach out to our wonderful clients and ask them to show you the stunning cars we insure.



Today we celebrate the Beautiful British Westfield, we asked the Westfield Sports Car Club to send us some examples of this classic roadster. Here are some they kindly shared with us!



The Lotus 7 was designed by the Lotus founder Mr Chapman and is considered the embodiment of the Lotus philosophy of performance through light-weight simplicity.



A true cult classic among petrol heads this vehicle has created many clubs across the country that celebrate the true joy of driving this little pocket rocket!



We hope you seeing this classic of both road and the track in all its glory! If you have a kit car or even your very own Lotus 7 be sure to get in contact for insurance there cares as much for your car as you do at:

Car of the Week….Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider

The car of the week is the gorgeous Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider.



The Alfa Romeo Giulietta was a family of vehicles from salons to coupés, when in 1955 the stylish spider was released. The beautiful car boasted a 4 cylinder engine capable of reaching 101 mph making summer cursing even more enticing in this classic Italian roadster.



Mr B knows his perfect Giulietta is safe to cruise in  thanks to his caring insurance package from AIB giving him agreed value, choice of repairer and salvage retention! If you have a classic car that needs caring for think no further than AIB insurance.



If you have a classic car be sure to call our friendly motor team on 02380 268351 for a bespoke quotation covering all your needs.




Thank you Mr B for sharing your beautiful Alfa Giulietta Spider!


Car of The Week… Nissan Skyline GTR R34

The Car of the Week this week is the 1999 Nissan Skyline GTR R34!



This nostalgia inducing car, made iconic through it’s roles in many motoring movies including fast and furious, more importantly its unique engineering using twin ceramic intercooled turbo chargers to remove all turbo-lag. This beautiful car also used six individual throttle valves to allow each cylinder to act as singular engines.



Mr H was kind enough to take out this policy with us, which includes both the benefits of salvage retention and agreed value.



Thank you Mr H for allowing us to share! If you have a Skyline of your own that needs insurance, please call our specialist team today on 02380 268351.

INTRODUCING…   Jordan Gibbons


AIB warmly welcomes Jordan Gibbons to our Sales team. Jordan will be working closely with Sales Director, Kirby De Gray Birch, developing all aspects of a long established, fast growing insurance broker.

Whitely born and bred Jordan previously worked in the motor industry for a shipping company, dealing with the import and export of motor vehicles.

If you need motor insurance please give Jordan and the team a call: 02380 268351


Not only a dab hand with a pair of scissors and a set of clippers (he cuts his own hair), Jordan also has a sound understanding of mechanics, having built his own motorcycle from scratch – a two stroke Derbi Senda. Multi skilled and very talented! A real petrol head, Jordan drives an Audi S5 which he has modified and remapped to 450bhp. Last year, he drove her on a road trip of a lifetime to Amsterdam.


“Jordan joins an exciting team and is quickly learning all aspects of the role. With a natural love and knowledge of cars, especially modified, he enjoys chatting to our clients and has already insured members of his family and a couple of friends who are extremely pleased with his service and our product.”

At AIB we pride ourselves on the quality of our staff: their great personalities, extensive knowledge of the market and their highly professional approach to work. They build solid and long lasting relationships with both our clients and insurer partners, backed by our full encouragement and resource, ensuring they reach their fullest potential.

Car Of The Day… MG B GT

The car of the day today is the wonderful MG B GT.


Mr S has the best cover on this little beauty with agreed value, choice of repairer and also salvage retention through ourselves here at AIB.


The MGB when launched was an all-new car in many respects and was distinguished by its unitary body and chassis structure. The GT version gave considerably more accommodation than the Roadster with the occasional rear seat and the very usable luggage platform.


We are MG fanatics here at AIB. If you have a MG that needs insuring call our friendly classic car team on 02380 26835.


Thank you Mr S for allowing us to share the lovely photos of his MG B GT!


If you have a policy with us and would like to share the photos on our website and socials, email us at

Introducing Clare Beale…

AIB are delighted to announce that Clare Beale has joined the administration department, headed by Megan Greer and will learn every aspect of the role within our busy insurance brokers. Our rapidly growing Administration Department is going from strength to strength right now, ensuring the smooth operation of our day to day, dedicated services.


Clare Beale

Clare was born and bred just outside Liverpool and attended Mill Lane Comprehensive School in Ellesmere Port. Clare worked for many years at David Lloyd as a fitness instructor. Next came the fantastic opportunity to work on cruise ships as a Fitness Director for three years, travelling around the Caribbean, Hawaii and Alaska. Clare eventually moved to Southampton and worked at P&O cruises for 20 years, where she met her future husband Paul and had three amazing boys.



Clare once dated a famous pop star for five years! We couldn’t possibly reveal his identity but if you took 5, 6, 7, 8 ‘Steps’ to the left, it would be a ‘Tragedy’ if you couldn’t guess the group and artist.


Gary Barlow obsessed Clare was thrilled when the opportunity arose to briefly meet the star and sit on his lap. Lucky Clare! Whilst not particularly accident prone, she also once fell into Vernon Kay’s dressing room, luckily timed with Vernon catching her, mid fall. Lucky Vernon!



She once decided to have a BBQ in the New Forrest.  When it started to rain the smart witted Clare decided to put the disposable BBQ in the boot of the car to keep her sausages dry which led to the car being set on fire!



Megan Greer, Administration Manager says: ”Clare has made a fantastic start already and has thrown herself into the role, picking the job up very quickly. Her solid background in cruise liner customer care has clearly given her the ability and skill to communicate very well with our varied and valued client base.

At AIB, we pride ourselves on the quality of our staff and the professional relationships we are able to develop. We nurture and encourage our team to reach their full potential, giving them the ongoing training, tools and resources for a rewarding career in a satisfying but demanding environment.
