Barclays are ripping me off. I am certain I can renew for a lot less than they're quoting (£716.09 ) but not sure where to start. I've been with them for years but its been going up and up and they're clearly taking my custom for granted.
Whatever you do, make sure you use a cashback site - I use Topcashback - you get a quid or so for clicking through them and going to a comparison site and i ended up going with an insurance company that was giving 70 quid cashback. Certainly worth factoring in!
Our home insurance went up to £1400 this year, had been creeping up for years but this was the year I finally did something about it. I used Moneysupermarket and Go compare and best for us was Sainsbury's home insurance through Moneysupermarket, was £900 cheaper, came with a £30 Sainsbury's gift card and double Nectar points at Sainsbury's for a year. The offer of the £30 giftcard popped into my inbox after I saved the quote but didn't act on it for a few days (I was waiting until my renewal date was nearer).
Definitely worth shopping around and weighing up different benefits - good luck!
