Just searched the comparison site moneysupermarket.com on 3 separate vehicles for cheapest car insurance quotes and the Post Office won each time because of a current GBP 50 cash back they are offering until 31 Jul 08.

You can earn additional cash back of GBP 23.80 via giveortake.com or cashbacknetwork.co.uk (similar to Quidco). I appreciate other companies offer more cashback via Quidco et al but I though this may be worth a pop to some of us.

Ive used the post office for car insurance before, be warned biggest bunch of idiots going! One of the worst customer service call centres ive come across!

I took out insurance with the Post Office with a similar offer just over a year ago. I finally got the cashback they had promised via their adverts (not quidco) about 5 months after the policy had started and only after I'd threatened to do a chargeback on my credit card for the original payment and to take out insurance elsewhere.

They made so many excuses that it wasn't funny. Strangely enough I didn't renew with them this year. Not saying it isn't a good offer but be prepared for a scrap with them to get your money.
#4
Beware of large excesses on their policies. They also give you the hard sell when you ring to say you are not renewing.
#5
Maybe not so good then. Thanks for your inputs
#6
For me and my OH, the Post Office are around £100 more than my best quote
#7
Both myself and OH have had insurance through the PO before, never a problem during or when moving to another supplier.
#8
Not necessarily the same with this but I did the post office home phone offer of £50 and it took several calls and about 6 months until they actually paid the money despite numerous promises.
#9
I went with the Post Office last year on this deal, got a Postal Order for £50, didn't know postal orders still existed.
Anyway
Went with Churchill this year via Quidco for £100 cashback - very prompt payment, less than 2 months.
#10
I did this, quidco came through straight away, the £50 we will have to wait 60 to 70 days they say so I will see. I went with PO because although I got one cheaper quote on confused with someone else, when I went through quidco it wouldn't give me a quote (hung on the retrieving details page) and had to go for this in the end but anyway check on the comparison sites first!
#11
I used them for insuring my husbands car last year and I got a real bargain.

Policy £ 205.00

Mrs Cashback £ 100.00

Po cashback £ 50.00

Therefore policy for the year cost £ 55.00 after cashback, that included NCD, protected no claims etc ets.
:)
Cashback was paid promptly, so we were well happy.
#12
Just about to go for some car ins brokered by the PO. The excess was fine as it's even with the Insurer I'm already with. They said 70 days for cashback paid via a refund to my original payment method.
#13
When my renewal came up my bank offered to undercut any renewal deal I got with any insurer. They're all at it.
#14
I've gone with the Post Office this year as they gave me the lowest quote by far as well as the extra £50 back.

Heat added.
#15
I just tried all the decent cashback offering insurance brokers on Quidco and every one was at least £100 more than the quotes I;ve been getting elsewhere all day - very strange lol

PO were about a tenner over my lowest quote so I'm pretty happy to get the £50 (eventually) aswell.

Dropping my cover to TPFT this year and with the CashBack the PO works out at £114 with the same insurer I'm with now including protected NCB.
#16
[SIZE=3]It is Budget Insurance that provides their cover.

I lost a fair bit of money with Budget, and I didn't even have a claim, as cancelling the grossly overpriced renewal policy was a a major challenge! An experience I wouldn't repeat, even if they were giving £5000 cashback.[/SIZE]
#17
I've taken out car insurance with the Post Office this week. Its Norwich Union and good cover. £250 for 24,000 miles a year comp cover.
Did it through Quidco hoping to get the 23.80 but dont think I'll get it because I'm disabled and you have to phone to give them details of disability and therefore the policy is not completed wholly online which they require.
I think that I've been discriminated against.
What do you think?

I'd advise against dropping to TPFT.

We had some lying so and so write off our car; no third party witness; he was drunk but had exchanged details and fled the scene before the police bothered to turn up - even if they had breathalysed him it wouldn't have affected the insurance claim. He was insured with Tesco we were with Privillege; it's the same company along with Direct Line and others; so there's no incentive for them to go anything but 50/50. We had to pay half of everything except the injury claims and only got half the value of the car. He was fully comp. so he got a full payout - that really hurt.
#19
If anyone is concerned about the PO's poor customer service I recommend AIG insurance. I used them when their quidco was £90 (it's now only £45) and found their customer service to be excellent. And I've received the £90 cashback, too.

Best wishes, Neil

Explain useless. Did you have to make a claim?

Surely the PO don't "do" the insurance it will ultimately be one of the big companies who have many names. The service you get is IMO very patchy because you have a different point of contact each time you call them.

Just gone through confused.com and PO is nearly cheapest quote so CB makes it a winner. can I also get quidco on this deal?
#22
I had a great quote for home insurance earlier this year, and no problem with the £50 cashback- however just tried a quote for the car and due to husbands conviction got a quote nearly £900 more than current one with privilege!!!
#23
still more expensive with cashbacks than the lowest quote for me on moneysupermarket which was admiral so cold for me
#24
Sorry nick but I didn't specifically post this for YOUR renewal

I totally understand what you're saying about TPFT wombat but the car is worth very little and in all frankness the comprehensive cover works out at around £80-100 more than the PO deal and I just don't have the money so I'll have to risk it.

Btw rang the PO about the £114 quote and they totally did a u-turn and told me that the moneysupermarket.com had made a mistake and it was £164 with the £50 cashback already off - I went straight to confused.com and they re-quoted for £129 (cb already off) this time the PO accepted it.
#26
I've just cancelled the PO automatic renewal and gone via Bradford & Bingley. They use the same insurer, Fortis for my details. The quote engine looked identical and even had my details already on. £15 cheaper.
#27
6 months for cashback after countless calls and broken promises , would not use again
#28
I bet Lloyds TSB Car Insurance would be cheaper try them and you get £75 cashback via quidco!
#29
Hmmm, all these bad stories about the cashback problems are making re-consider going with them - that 14 days cooling off period may well be handy.
#30
If anybody does get a quote please can you use leaflet code 2784246 if you go directy to their site. It may e useful.
#31
I aso know that the post ofice do life assurance for over 50s and this currently has a £50 cashback. The cover starts from £7 a month. There is also a free gift of wine or digital camera. The cahback and gift are sent after the third months premium are paid and you are free to cancel the policy as you wish although you wont get any returns. But if you pay three month at £7 you recieve £50 cashback and the gift. Everybody is free to work the maths out!!!. Also quote code 2784246 so i can get credit. I know this as I work for a post office.

No claim, they are just plain incompetent, the so called helpline is staffed by rude numpties, they somehow managed to charge me twice for the same policy..grrrrrrrrrrr.:x

Never again, I will just buy my stamps at the Post Office in future.

( PS, I know that this is sub contracted to another company, the same as Budget use ).

Well infact don't think mine tracked but I made a Enquire with quidco and eventually got the money back im with them now and it includes breakdown cover and legal cover. To re-new with any insurance will cost more but if i was a new customer it would cost be £170 to insure my car with them this year with cash back best deal by far.
#35
Great post. Saved almost £100! H&R added
#36
I've just gone via quidco for the PO car insurance - at the end of the quote there was nothing to confirm online and you have to call up to process finally.

Sorted concerned that quidco won't track now but I checked their stats on enquires etc and its good. It still is the cheapest after the £50 comes off which my mum did a couple of years back she got them after a month so I am not concerned about that (yet). Quidco will be the bonus.

Anyway, is that standard with The PO in having to call to complete process? I've read that massive blog post on insurance the last couple of days at Quidblog and it seems they pay the affiliate they track it to, so it should be Quidco for the quote number I used. Suppose I'll have to wait and see.

Nope everything went through with me online and tracking was actually pretty quick.

Thanks

I re-read one of the earlier posts who said that they couldn't do it online beacuse they was disabled. I wonder if they do discriminate against any1 with other circumstances... It probably also didn't help their site breaking half way through the quote.

hmmms, we'll see. I have to wait 14 days apparently before raising a ticket even though it says 0-1 days.
#39
What a shower of muppets these BISL (post office insurance) are: I took the policy out and paid via card, refunded it within 4 days (14 days is allowed) I returned the documents and after 3 phone-calls they say it's gonna take around 15 days to get the money back onto my card. 1st person said 3 days, second person said 7 days, thrid person says 15 days - also ************ saying different banks take different amounts of time to process the refund - total **** they ALL take 3-7 days - I've had refunds go back onto my card within 2 days.

It might say POST OFFICE at the top of the site but be under no illusion you're just dealing with some run of the mill little 3rd party insurance broker and you should expect the according service levels.

Also when you call they even have CASHBACK chasing as one of their automated call options - always a bad sign that you have so many people chasing their 'automatic' refunds that they funnel the calls off in a certain direction.
