Your mileage may vary, but they weren't so cheap for me... I just renewed 2 days ago.

Cheapest insurance for me £556.70 with another company (Fully Comp, Skoda Oct 1.9 TDi, 0yr NCB, 3 incidents on record), with Direct Line they wanted over £1,000!

Direct Line are not great, customer service is perticularly bad.

More Than blew there quote out of the water.

The price comparison websites are good to guage a quote, then phone the company direct, for a slighlty better deal. DIRECT.

Had a bad experience with direct line.

- They took my car to an authorised repairer to repair the damage.
-- When i went to collect the car, it was two colours.
-- I left the car at repairer and asked for direct line assessur to inspect and then direct line said I had to return the curtosey car because it was only for upto 14days max.
-- I had 3 assessors inspect my car and they agreed it was same colour (as did the repairer).
-- They charged me to insure my other car so i had a car to drive while this was been "sorted out"

A week or two worth of repairs, took 3 months. The itemized invoice from the repairer was a bunch of lies. They said they had replaced the rear window, but the window when i collected my car had my car club sticker on and even the greasy finger prints from me carrying classic car parts in and out. From the invoice there was about £1500 of items on there which had not been replaced/fitted on my vehicle.

I had to pay £400 excess, which they would not budge on or offer any refund/part payment for the inconvience caused etc.

Took 5months to sort out using an obudsman and the car ended up having a near full respray at the dealer to sort out the mess.

£400 excess + cost of insuring another car + hassle/phone calls/etc - It would have been cheaper to goto my local independent garage for a repair.

If that did not put anybody off, I do not know what would!! Thanks for the info even if Direct Line was cheaper, there is nothing worse than bad customer service and having to chase up everything yourself.

Years ago Direct Line were cheap, and the last claim I had was with them, back in about 1990 and then was problem free; but the competitive pricing & service went LONG ago :-(

That said, I would sooner pay DOUBLE with Direct Line than be ripped off by Budget Insurance. They make a "Drama" out of NO crisis at all! I don't think I have ever had problems PAYING for insurance before, all hassles being created by them! I wonder what will their service be like when there is claim and you want money FROM them?
