Showing on a couple of my cards this morning. Seems quite a specific amount, but if your car insurance (or perhaps if you have a young driver in the family) falls into this price bracket and is due before the 13th November this year (or you're happy to pay in advance setting a start date), then this could be useful. It may also make Admiral Multi car more attractive to some. Don't forget to combine with cashback via Quidco or Topcashback.

Good discount and with use of a cashback site.

Thanks OP. Indeed £550 what an odd amount!

Fortunately (fingers crossed) in my 20 years of driving mine has always been around the £350 mark.

What this would be good for, would be if you had a quote around the £450-500 mark but then you wanted add ons like recovery etc. which may be fairly reasonably priced and will count for this because it's direct through Amex.

OR probably hottest if insuring two cars assuming it's possible to pay in one transaction?! Because as I say with these Amex offers it's just based on the transaction occurring so there are no exceptions made.

I am still waiting for the 350 mark to dawn on me - 3 years of driving in the UK and still in the high 6-700s - they say it improves over time - lets see :)

Pah, even with both our cars we are well below 550. One of the few advantages of being an old git.

Good luck. Driving for 4 years, passed test just before my 34th birthday. My insurance dropped after the first year but hasn't really gone down since!

I started with a 13 year old Peugeot 206 1.9D worth ~ £500 and paid around £880 for the first year of insurance.

At my first renewal I had changed to a Peugeot 206 2.0 HDi and the cost was around £550. My cost has not dropped since. e.g.

Brand new (leased) Ford Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost - ~£550 insurance
Brand new (Bought) Mazda 3 2.0 - ~£550 insurance

Low crime areas, no points, no claims and I'd passed my IAM advanced test before the last renewal. I guess I should be happy that at least the cost didn't go UP when I switched to brand new cars!

Car insurance is a giant racket. Helpful and friendly when they want your money. They put every obstacle in the way when it comes to claims. oh and dont get me started on Auto-renewal policies. They never make it easy to opt-out. No respect for customers at all. If they did, renewal prices would be cheaper.

I'd say willy nilly all insurance is a scam really - making it almost as anti customer as they can be.

I'd be gutted if I had to pay more than £250 for fully comp with protected no claims!

If you ever have the misfortune to make a claim through this truly abysmal excuse of an insurance company you will lose a lot more than you save with this deal.

My car was hit and eventually written off by a drunk driver whilst parked up. I could detail you a dozen plus failings but the big ones where:
1) They lied to me about being able to persue the claim (it took the police to tell me that they were lying).
2) They "forgot" about the claim twice, wasting two of the nine months it took to resolve the claim. They took 3months to decide to write it off and thus start paying out. Imagine if it was your only car involved. They wouldn't get me a hire car and said that as the other insurer might not pay out that if I hire one it would be at my own financial risk. It took 7 months for them to get round to contacting the other parties insurer to resolve what was a relatively simple claim.
3) I had to phone them 43 times over 9 months to push the claim through to conclusion.
4) Even after fighting and formal complaints and appeals, they paid out 18% less than the very cheapest equivalent car on autotrader which was older, higher mileage and lesser spec.

The stress, upset and anger still burns me up now, Trust me, this saving is not worth the pain should you ever need to claim. They subcontract every department out unlike other companies and are honestly farcical in their handling. Don't just take my word for it, google them. They have form for making lousy payouts whereas other "direct" companies have equal form for paying out sensibly so not all insurers are the same. Please, do your research.

It's the same for every company. There are always people with good experiences and some others with bad experiences. The people who have bad experiences are always the most vocal too.

I left Admiral when they put up my premiums by about 50% for no reason at all. Switched to Aviva instead, who I'm sure have some terrible reviews too.

That is only partly true I would say, Admirals whole setup is shambolic due to each department being run by a different company (subcontracted out).

When my other half was involved in a non-fault accident Direct Line payed out in under 14days and for more money than was our "hoped for" amount. We were ready for a fight there but thankfully didn't have to have one. They certainly weren't perfect in their handling, but they were still in a different league to Admiral. That is what I meant by doing research on it, Direct Line have a reputation for paying out a fair amount.

I haven't even mentioned the fact that Admiral "accidentally" cancelled the policy covering the replacement car that I had bought, so for 2 weeks I was uninsured until I got the letter telling me that they had cancelled the policy. That was one of the 43 phone calls I had to make to them.

In my experience Admiral were dishonest (as stated by the police!) and utterly, utterly incompetent.
