so the cashback is from top cashback ? totally wrong title.

plus this deal won't get much heat.


​true but I am unable to edit on my phone, it does say so in post. and sorry if its misleading I did mt best
Esure group ( includes Sheila's Wheels & others) gave me good quotes of £180ish for comprehensive, compared with over £300 from others. I got £57.75 cashback from Esure instead of Top Cashback (its now £55.55 last I looked). That's because their website recognized the SP30 code, as a box came up repeating it but would not let me go to next page because it then said it did not recognize it!! Phoned Esure and they agreed to take the cashback off the premium! Much quicker than Top Cashback or Quidco. In fact I have to wait 5 months for the cashback on my home insurance from TC! Ridiculous!

They will not give you proof of No Claims bonus if you move to another insurance company.


They have to by law, and I had no problem getting mine earlier this year when we changed to the RAC.

Always works for me.

Do the comparison, find the winner and go direct to their website! A couple of quid isn't anything amazing, but better than nowt.... and you get cheaper insurance as well. I think I used TCB with the insurer too, so was ideal!

Hot!

didn't track: voted cold
Sorry, but we cannot lodge claims to this merchant. This is usually due to the small amounts involved or the fact that the merchant will not process missing cashback claims.
Mine paid out very quickly although it is annoying as you can only have it paid out by bacs

Hugely useful. Heat. Anyone know if this would also work with garage courtesy cars? Excess on them is usually eye - watering.


[email protected] if you have a rental agreement and most garages do issue one for you to sign, then this will cover any excess. I buy one every year and it saves you a fortune.
Wondered that myself but in the T&Cs it excludes loan cars. However, some garages treat it as a rental so if you fill out rental paperwork then I reckon you'd be golden.

I also received a £30 cash back check for home insurance and their quote was actually cheaper than on price comparison websites so its worth checking before contacting them.

Not always, it's worth checking.

I got a cashback deal through them when doing my mum's car insurance, I think it was £30 and also got £45 Quidco. The quote was almost identical to the one I received through GoCompare and the £30 cheque they sent made it cheaper.

Just to add my experience. I used all the comparison sites, they gave me quotes around £400-£500 with really crappy small name insurers.

I tried aviva, and my quote came to £360! This could be because I was an existing Aviva customer (discount added automatically during quote). But I thought it was a bargain!

I was insuring a Volkswagen Up, with 1 year NCD, street parking, 5000 miles a year, and with a second driver with just a provisional license.
My Aviva quote is £500 cheaper than anywhere else, and im using an international license. Curious how you know the 30% discount was added? Also how do you go through quidco?

I think you will find every Insurance have that sort of attitude when it comes to paying out. Must read all policy documents when a claim is denied.

Don't understand insurance company why they advertise £50 off or % off. As each persons premium is different. Your premium with 10% off can be more expensive than mine. And vice versa. It's all about the last price you pay with or without a offer doesn't make a thing!!!

If Coop was your cheapest quote and you could better that by another 10% how can you not understand that.

Or even if your cheapest quote wasn't Coop, this 10% could then undercut that cheapest quote with someone else when using this off.

Legal expenses legally is an optional extra. If you don't want it ask for it to be deleted and the cost deducted.

However do be warned about no win no fee. It is normal for the solicitor to retain up to a maximum of 25% of your claim if he wins your case.

Personally I would recommend buying the legal expenses cover but check that you will retain all your compensation and do not pay more than £25

nowadays the legal cover which used to be an inclusive part of the cover is now a chargeable addition or extra and can be as expensive as up to £30 per year

A bit of a sweeping statement there, ours has always included Legal Cover for free....but as you have worked in the 'industry' for 25 yrs you'll be used to scaremongering.
Having had many different car insurances over the years, I've never yet come across one where legal cover was 'free'. There is almost always an opt-out option which cuts the cost of the inclusive quote.
nothing is free. ..

if you do have to claim personal injury likely they will take a % of your compensation c 25% is typical.
Yes but who will they sell your contact details to?

Ha Ha people like you do make me laugh X), Its nothing to do with scaremongering its to do with making people aware of alternatives in the marketplace and the possibility of saving those hard earned pennies, no guns to heads or being pushy just pointing them in a direction where they can review and make their own decisions - But to address your response, I worked for an actual Insurer not a broker or agent so "we" never sold any legal expenses or insurance policies, we left that down to the brokers and their commission hungry attitudes - However if you or anyone reading this wants to run a quick quote with moneysupermarket.com or compare the market.com ( the 2 biggest comparison sites ) you will see just how many policies include it as a chargeable extra, then maybe, just maybe, you will re-think your own sweeping statement :p but again, thank you for your informed input.

like for like is the problem. If your existing policy slightly differs from the M & S one then it will not be compared.
I've seen these "like for like" clauses in T&Cs before with First Direct and Post Office who also guaranteed to beat insurance renewal and had no trouble even though my Tesco Value policy which most definitely inferior to First Direct's policy!

No insurance policy is going to be identical, they're generally only looking at excess amounts (both voluntary and compulsory) as well optional extras.

This is the clause that matters:

Your M&S Car Insurance renewal quote must be on an equivalent basis matching your current cover levels and personal details
with your existing insurer, including the voluntary excess and additional products.

Yeah sure, we had 2 accidents this year in our fleet relating to the "green light means its my right to go". 1 a sales men who moved slowly across pedestrian crossing even thought people were still crossing. He gently hit one of people in the side of leg, his claim "the lights was green and he could go". But of course, you cannot drive in to people, even if they go on the red or amber light to cross the road you only proceeding if safe to do so. He no longer works for the company, evidence collected by his own blooming dash cam! Convicted of dangerous driving!

Likewise one our utility cans went across a junction clipping the back of a car that was crossing in front of him. Car was clearly beyond the line at his set of lights (not a yellow box junction) so it was his right of way to go. Our can driver didn't care, claiming the green light meaning he could go, obviously not the case as other traffic still had to complete its turn.

Its a funny old world out there!

Its a funny old world out there!
so green does mean go then. You say only if your not going to block a junction but also say only if it's clear, surely it should be clear if all drivers follow the "don't block a junction rule"?
sirfentalot
what do green lights mean then?
Proceed, only if safe to do so! Ensuring all other legal obligations are clear, like traffic has cleared the junction, your not going to block the junction etc.

Seems a little "special" too... the app! Whilst walking over a footbridge notice Appy Driver thought I was potentially driving... *bizarre*
Main downside is you cant combine discount with quotes from comparison sites, and they're always quite a bit cheaper for me than direct with admiral.
Last night I installed an app curious to see exactly how much it does have rights to track. Whilst it seems possible to start and stop the app it seems the app is able to monitor all sms / mms messages, any attempt to remove this privilege stops the app working. Thought I should pass on.
Re spying not really as you've N option to install on the phone. And you can control when it's active and hopefully save some money when you come to renew too.
Hi it's using the gap on your phone. Re spying you can force the app shut so it will only capture whichever journeys you'd like it to.

This is only £5 lol, much better to use one of the many cashback sites to get a better return.
Watch out for them trying to auto-renew without the authority to do so. I paid my insurance off in one lump sum last year and the paperwork said they'd only autorenew if direct debit was chosen. Anyway, I didn't want to renew with them but they took the next year's premium out of my account anyway and made it really difficult to cancel the policy I didn't want in the first place!

Thanks, Newbold.

I thought they were just acting as a claims handler - dealing with your insurers on your behalf.

And I take your point about not reporting accidents - although it has been known to happen when the damage is slight!
Low_cunning
My insurers "insist" that I call them first (I wonder why?) So they won't be very pleased if I go to via Skoda!
Also, if I decide this wasn't an accident, as such, and I'll sort it out myself, I don't want to pay main dealer prices to do so.
Has anyone had any experience of this scheme?
Puzzled by that. You just sign up to Ensurance, and they don't even ask (or need to know) who your insurer is. It's a standalone policy which operates entirely separately from your main car policy.

If you choose not to claim on your car policy, that's up to you - though if you don't advise the insurer of an accident you'll be risking not being covered for future claims.

Is VW ensurance being offered to 2nd hand Polo of less than 3 years old? And has anyone got any actual experience using them? Any good? Really tempted to just get the cheapest insurance and let VW ensurance get the headache dealing with the insurance company.

Im Under 50 & was suprised that the post office offered the best quote for my range rover. My insurer , Admiral quoted me the same as last years policy £340. Post office all in was £220 wow.

Your lucky.......I pay £240 a month ;)

Holy cow £240 a month on insurance is insane, I've got a new Scirocco at the moment that I'm selling that's only £300 a year to insure. Next on the list is a Bentley Continental GT, been quoted £600 fully comp. I'm 30 been driving since I was 17 but never passed my test until I was around 21. 9 years NCB and zero point.
Mother goose is on my policy, sometimes works out cheaper, other times it doesn't, so it's good to play about.

Wowza... Continental GT next but by the sounds of it, still living at home. Priorities?

Yeah I'm back at home, I did have my own place renting, but back with mother goose. Going to look at buying somewhere in the next year or two, I can't handle renting anymore it was a waste of monies. No more fancy car's when I jump on the property ladder, 1.1 M reg Fiesta it'll be lol.

For anybody with a performance car, Greenlight insure is absolutely awesome there well worth a quote from... I've had all sorts of cars with them, Renault 5 GT Turbo's, Rs Turbo's, Golf Anniversary GTi's, Audi s3's, Evo's, Subaru Impreza's etc and they beat everybody every time.
I saved money by going with the post office - my current insurers could not match it. People should check them out.
Typical I've only got 49 cars so don't qualify.
I'm 34 and my renewal for a 2013 Juke was £210 this year......... but I shall pass this info onto my uncle.

We flew with Monarch to Sanford last year and couldn't fault them. Why are people worried about the hotel ??? Don't go there then,book a villa,you won't get flights this cheap alone so book the package then get different accommodation.
Great deal pity we have already booked for next month :)

Great to see this featured over at HolidayPirates and thanks for the nod! Enjoy Orlando those that booked and thanks for the heat!
The price changes to £1,324.00 as soon as you go to the next page in the booking process.
Great price but after past experiences I said I'd never fly Monarch again.

I gave them one more chance the last time I said that and the flight was delayed 6 hours due to a "fault with the captain's seat" so they'll never get a penny off me again!

It alreet mate.... i personally havent used it either... but its worth adding deals like this as you realise how bad some companies are! Hopefully some others have steered clear
I took my Halifax Home and Contents policy into their Maidstone branch last week and their equivalent policy was approx. £170 more expensive than mine - and I'm a 123 customer! So I think they make grand statements that they can't bring to reality. Ok as bank tho, I've had no probs, and their 123 a/c pays top interest. Cold from me.
Sorry to vote your deal cold tommybone1 as you made the effort to post a deal unlike myself,(one day I will).my hatred of Santander runs very deep so I had to vote.
Thanks for the insight guys!...
What a waste of time this bank is... why dont they just provide a great service and get themselves a good reputation? Instead of just flashing their cash buying out all the banks, making loads of bells and whistle promotions and generally just being being pap!

Of course I know about the 5% bonus ;-)

Some things are simply not worth mentioning.

Some things are, 5000 Tesco clubcard points for example.

You're leading people up the garden path by telling people they can't use the £70 cashback to get 5000 Tesco clubcard points (or 5250 if you want to be **** about it).

You can. it's very simple and doesn't break any TCB rules, in fact TCB love their customers to use this method.

So they "love" you using this method but state on the page - "If you earn cashback through this merchant, payouts cannot be made by PayPal, Amazon.co.uk Gift Certificates, Love2shop or Tesco Clubcard Points."?

Not to mention if it's completely legitimate and they love you doing it, there is no logical reason to get people to request you send them a PM to get the info.
They have just rejected my £50 Quidco claim, claim raised! Pretty straight forward I thought, tracked no problem and policy paid in full but still rejected. Beware!
I've been with DL for several years but unfortunately about two years ago their prices seem to have gone up, way too much compared to other insurers. Now they are giving me quotes at least £350 more than any other insurer (under the same circumstances). Also I liked the idea of paying the instalments directly to them. This also has changed now - If one wants to pay by instalments, it means that a third party is involved to provide the credit (but all of the insurers do it now).
Didn't voted but it is cold for me. Even with £100 cashback I would still pay much more than I do now. But may be a good deal for some, if DL is offering them the cheapest quote.

I can find a lot of car hire excess annual policies - but I need one that covers Social and Domestic hire of Vans on an annual basis

Thanks

or save £39 and go with a proper car hire company that has excess and collision damage waiver! oO

example of decent ones:-

http://www.economycarhire.com/

http://www.arcarhire.com/car-hire/car-hire.php (canaries only)

it amazes me that people still go with the likes of easycar, goldcar, malagacars etc without reading the small print (e.g easycar excess is often around £2000!)


economycarhire is not completely excess free. I went to book car and got this at checkout:

Enhanced Top-up Insurance - £6

Worry-free car rental with our enhanced top-up insurance provides cover against any loss or damage to the vehicle not covered by the car rental insurance including wheels, tyres, glass, under body, roof, interior, keys, locks and misfuelling. In the event of a loss you will have to pay our car rental partner directly and then claim the amount back from our insurance provider. The car hire supplier may offer their own alternative optional insurance product.
How easy to cancel? I ordered multi one by mistake when I wanted single.
thanks for the reply, iv read terms & conditions from a few sites that people have suggested. They all seem to have a similar restriction that the car value cannot exceed value 60k, 75k. but then they also state expensive or prestige cars are excluded. so it doesnt make sense. ive contacted 2 companies regarding their t&c and one said the vehicle that i am hiring audi tts is not covered (when the vehicle is less than 40k), and icarhireinsurance said they can provide cover for this vehicle (but their t&c state expensive cars excluded). . i do have email confirmation that they will cover this vehicle,but just got a feeling that when a claim is made they will try get out of it any way possible. is there a company which doesnt have these exclusions? or even any company that just one simple exclusion i.e car value cannot exceed 70k and none of that bs about expensive cars or prestige cars are excluded. even a c class is a expensive/prestige car that costs around 26k which will happen to be excluded so it questions why they say car value most not exceed 70k and such when a inexpensive car costs no where near that amount.

I spent a week getting up to the 200 miles required and got a score of 8.8.

I used the email link to get a quote but no discount was automatically applied and nor was there anywhere to apply my App results. Had to call them to get them to apply the discount. My quote went down from £330 to £303. A lot of trouble for £27 especially as I'd received much cheaper quotes via confused.com.

Ended up going with Sainsbury's with a price of £246.

So in summary: waste of time.

As far as I know, that's only when "Customers buy their cinema ticket vouchers online at the campaign website"...

Agreed but it looks as though that is the only way of buying the vouchers.
It's not a bargain unless their insurance is cheaper than the competition.

Never trust an insurance company that doesn't talk about prices - and ask why they won't go on comparison web sites!
