I haven't put this in Deals, as I know every car insurance quote is different, but still felt the info might benefit someone.
With my car insurance due this week, I have been searching high and low for the best quote. When using price comparison sites, the best quotes came in at around £230 and when going direct to the insurers (those not on comparison sites) the quotes were coming in at £350 - £400.
I also tried most of the options through Quidco, but no real improvement until I tried the Co-operative. Their quote came in at £260, but with £70 quidco, which tracked right away, that came to a net figure of £190 a saving of about £40 on the next best quote.
The other good thing with the Co-op is that they make a donation to a carbon offsetting programme to allow for CO2 used by your car.
So, ethical and cheap car insurance, hope it helps someone.
