I've just had my car insuarnce renewal through from kwik fit, and even though i've made no claims and have 8 years of no claims bonus they have deceided to put my insurnace up by over £200, that nearly double my monthly payment.
So i called them up and they said they could knock a bit off, but it still wasn't enough, so i go a few quotes, including from money supermarket.com which included kwik fit....the quote from kwik fit was £100 cheaper than they had offered me!??
So i went with direct line who i'm now paying what i have been paying last year.
Same thing happened with my home insurance, got my renewal through, £200 more than i was paying, phoned them up and they then knocked the £200 off
They obvioulsy rely on people not checking their renewals but surely to keep customers they could offer more reasonable prices.
