Took out a policy with Aviva, one of the top insurers worldwide, - £107 premium for unlimited buildings cover and £100,000 contents cover.
Got £42 from Top Cashback! Net cost is £65.
Just had a letter today, (which reminded me about buying a policy), from AgeUK offering £500k buildings cover and £60k contents cover for £222.99! They compare that with Prudential - £244.86 and L&G - £376.23 for the same cover!!! Of course AgeUK compare themselves with the most/more expensive insurers to try to make AgeUK look cheaper, but this organization, which is supposed to offer good deals for older people do nothing of the sort, as you can see.
Saga are the same - have you seen the prices on their holidays? The only good deal they do is their credit card which does not charge you for foreign currency transactions, but they do not give as good exchange rates as my Santander Zero credit card which I use most abroad but you can no longer apply for it.
Other cards good for spending abroad are Halifax Clarity and The Post Office.
