I got 2 very good deals by going through gocompared . I was with the AA for a year with premiums about £225 per year for each vehicle . Gocompare found a deal by Churchill with Green Flag cover and one by Saga .................. around £159 each . Great saving .
#8
First Direct, they beat your renewal by 10% which made them the cheapest by a long way for me
#9
After Quidco AA and Aviva are identical are the same price but get a courtesy car with the AA price. Well the cheapest was actually 1st Central but they don't get good press if you have to make a claim.

Tescos I have been with for past 2 years. They use crappy solicitors in the case of a Crash and personal injuries. But hopefully you wont need to use them :)

Are they rubbish?


No insurance company is really 'rubbish' as most insurance companies have parent companies, of which their is only a handful of.
#13
Swift .com for me :thumbsup:
#14
Yeah try Aviva, those cool dudes saved me £200 compared to all those compare sites and every other insurer i tried.

I'd recommend phoning them up instead of an online quote though, you'll get a better deal.

My local insurance broker, dunno who specifically its with, always changes, its the brokers job to come up with a decent price then, and not me ringing round all the companies

Develop a relationship with your local company, and then use that as leverage in future to keep the price down

the result? my years insurance was 120 pounds , tpf&t, but often a deal is presented for a few pounds more for fully comp and breakdown cover

Have used post office a couple of times and again this year - have always been fine, and i also take breakdown option. If you go through cash back site they give you £25 back (after a waiting period) but it reg after a day or so. Bargin!!! cash back site i used was topcashback (rec by martins money off itv) it also works if you use the code it gives you for an offer on the breakdown - if its still on!
#17
my price was £256.37 for 2 people fully comp wth full breakdown -(not european tho) with £25 back shortly.
#18
Thanks everyone!!

I use Zurich, they work out cheapest for me and give me breakdown cover. I used to use Tesco but they were absolute rubbish for my mum when she made a claim with them. On the other hand Zurich were brilliant for my Dad when he crashed. Another thing I like about them is that their renewal quote is always very competitive and they give you an insurance certificate on a credit card thing so that you can carry it easily.

Aviva for two of mine and more than for the other
#21
You'll be pleased to know I went with the Co-Op in the end! £300 with a £200 excess, plus £70 cashback! :)
#22
bell.com was about £90 cheaper for me, went though confused.co

Aviva for me too, with £75 quidco they are way cheaper than anyone else.
#24
had a call off the post office last night giving me a quote, they asked what my current insurance has quoted and i said £290, they went through all the details with me (about 15 mins) and then offered me the price of £425. The guy seemed a bit p***ed off that i wasn't interested.

Adrian flux, cheapest by far.
#25
direct line started to get expensive confused . com pulled up churchill with free breakdown :)
#26
Aviva,

They were brilliant when I had to make a claim,dead easy,were about £20 more than the cheapest but well worth it

cheaper for you, with your details for your insurance that is specific to you (nothing personal just using it as an example :))





I dont get insurance threads, I've said it before. It would make no difference whatsoever if someone posted that their insurance was 25p, its theirs, came about because of their specific details and is personal to them.

unless i've just totally missed the point in spending time imputing my details to get the best deal for me :roll:

Car insurance recommendations can be relevant if they are based on something other than price, e.g. how an insurance company behaves in the event of a claim. Apart from that, yea, pretty pointless to discuss you may as well input your details and compare the cheapest for you.

I see what you are saying but with £75 quidco on Aviva I am sure there are a lot of people that would find them cheaper. Obviouslythis doesn't suit everyone but I bet it suits more than not.

I didn't ask what PRICE people paid, I asked whether or not the Post Office good and who other people used to get an idea of bad/good experience. Now zip it.
