has anyone just renewed a policy lately or found a fantastically cheap quote?
i have two policies to renew, and tried a few quotes online but they take ageeeeeees to do. So has any companies they feel will be cheap to quote - with esure and lloyds at mo. The quotes i've done are not much different. I can go through a site that offers cashback though. tesco more expensive, as I thought.
Ok here are the Which best buys...but they are not driven by price when I read it again, although they do say teh cheaper polices are first on the list.
Medium sized car they recommend the following Swiftcover; Postoffice & Budget for online quotes large car (thinking of the Passat maybe?) Swiftcover, post office & Admiral
If you are in a higher risk area Admiral, elephant & swiftcover for a higher risk area.
HTH and gives you somewhere to look.
The other thing you can do is look at a comparison site like money supermarket and see what comes out cheapest and maybe look at they cheapest direct to see if moneysupermarket are adding a slice.
The other thing to think about is someone who will llow you a discount with a second policy instead of going with 2 insurers. My Tesco policy (which I did find cheap BTW) will do this - unfortuantely DP has specialist insurance.
thank you, thats really kind. It will be a low risk area. I used to be with Tesco, and they were cheap, but the premiums jumped up for both cars about 3 years ago. Greasy palm are going a cashback if you click through them...
do NOT use swiftcover. Had very bad experience during which they lost my claim twice, wrote my car off and claimed they'd already paid me! I ended up losing my no cliams even though protected due to their stupidity!
can recommend direct line, tesco and motorminder (childminder)
I saved £350 with moneysupermarket.com last month - was with Elephant, they quoted Admiral as cheapest, but I phoned Elephant and they agreed to match the quote. Also with moneysupermarket you can click through to the individual insurers and check info and try tweaking things like level of excess.
Worth checking that all your details are correct and up to date - for example they weren't aware MrNC was married, points on his licence had expired, they don't seem to automatically add a year since your last claim unless you point it out, and try to describe your jobs in the best possible terms - eg software engineers are much lower risk apparently than computer programmers, because any teenager can call themselves a programmer...
Confused.com and gocompare.com just crashed when I tried them.
