For 20 years I have been insuring my car, in the early days it was a case of ringing the insurer direct or ringing round a bunch of brokers. Savings could be had if you spent a little time making calls. Then along came the internet and the likes of moneysupermarket.com and confused.com which was a vast improvement saving lots of time and again ensuring you could obtain the right cover at a competitive price. However, in recent years I've found the savings to be few and far between unless you wished to vastly compromise the level of cover.
In the last 12 months premiums seem to have gone through the roof with the mainstream insurers and I was shocked to see my premium increasing by 25% so once again I logged on to the comparison sites and to my surprise I found that 2 insurers inparticular beat the competition by a margain. These are Elephant.com and Admiral.com. It may be that the 2 are related but regardless, the premium was £160 less, a saving of 40% on my current premium.
I used confused.com to get the price as it worked out £10 less than moneysupermarket.com.
I have a couple of modifications to the vehicle which added about £5 compared to £40 with the previous insurer.
So if your insurance is due soon I'd recommend you check out confused.com and inparticular, Admiral and Elephant.
Good luck and I hope you save some money.
