The Dreaded Car Insurance Renewal by Bermudan 75

Have received my renewal notice, £444 fully comp from Swift. I have requested a quote from Adrian Flux online. I also used the RBS online service but this just hung when the submit quotation request button was pressed.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

:cheers:

My renewal from Swift was about the same as yours, I went with AF at around £250 ish
Best to call them, get a quote and then tell them you are member here for a further discount.

I was very pleased with what Direct Line quoted me Mike. Worth a look maybe.

I always use the on-line comparison sites first to get an idea of prices then ring the cheapest ones to see if they can beat the on-line price - have to say that AF was the cheapest for my ZTT this year.

This where I traditionally jump in and point out that cheapest is seldom best but no-one ever takes any notice so this time I'm not going to bother.

Just remember, at some point you might need to make a claim and cheap insurance might cost you dear . . .

I have never seen proof positive that if you pay more you get a better service. Some might think paying more they will get a better service. As always, the proof is in the eating.

:iagree: Good value for our money, not just the cheapest, is what we should be looking for. Although I have to admit, that it isn't easy to get all the relevant information we need to make a good decision.

Chris Knott were cheapest for me.

The like to beat your cheapest quote by £30 - £50.

All I had to do was send them the cheapest quote I had - why was off gocompare.

Mine is due Feb so we'll see if they can do it again.

With buildings insurance many companies average the rebuild figure for your house based upon your street, wildly inaccurate in most cases.

I told the Halifax that the rebuild figure for our house was too high, they backed down when they realised that they were dealing with a Residential Valuation Surveyor.

So challenge their figure, if you want to know how to work out your rebuild cost (used in mortgage valuations) send me a pm.
