Question Renault Master

Hi everyone

I have just bought a 2001 Renault Master 2.2 DCI, it has been converted into a horsebox.

I only have one ignition key for it though, which is just a plain metal key - does this mean it hasn't got an immobiliser? Or that the immobiliser has been disconnected somehow as surely it must need a chip in the key if it had an immobiliser?

I got another key cut yesterday but although it opens the driver's door, it will not turn in the ignition - maybe because it is not that good a copy and the ignition is more 'fussy' than the driver's door lock?

I rang up Renault and it will cost approx 150 to get a new key from them as they have to order it from France then the technician has to program it to the van (apparently the van has remote central locking but I don't think the central locking is working to be honest so I thought I might as well just get a plain key cut if possible).

Is it worth trying a different key cutting place to get a better copy made?

Just edited to add - re the central locking, when I open the driver's door with the key, it just opens that lock not the passenger door and also, when I press the lock button in the roof lining nothing happens, so I don't know what could be wrong, don't want to spend loads of money getting it fixed because it is only a horsebox, which I use infrequently.
