Aviva car insurance - 20% off online + £60 quidco cashback (good for new drivers!)

Found 6th Jul 2011
I'm a first time driver and have been finding it sooo difficult to get a good insurance quote. Have been searching high and low and calling up companies for over a week now and I stumbled upon this Aviva deal (started 1st July, ends 17th July)

This 20% off was god-sent from Aviva especially if you are a new driver with no NCB taking out a policy for the first time (integrated introductory discount with the quote as I was informed by the customer service).

Really impressed with my quote of £1700 compared to £2100 over the phone. Excess was only £550 (and compared to the other quotations on price comparison websites with quote ranging from £3000 for similar excess or £1000++ with a flipping £3000 compulsory excess!!) And in addition, £60 quidco cash back to smile about! Makes me feel good today.

Thought I should pass the savings along too. Hope it helps someone!

P.S. They include provisional licence for number of year held of driving licence (including your current full UK licence) so be sure to quote it right as you could save a hundred or so!

Aviva was xpensive for me too.
Aviva comes out as the cheapest for me, been driving 1 year and I'm renewing at the end of this month. Others on price comparison websites were £800+ and Aviva is £673.

Thanks happyrainbow for saving me some cash!
Aviva try to imply that their car insurance is still the quality product that used to be offered by the Norwich Union. This simply isn’t true and there is no reason to pay more for their car insurance than you would elsewhere.
What's a good quote for one person is not for another. Insurance is a very individual thing as it depends on so many specifics of the person being insured. Deals like this are never usually as good as they seem. It massively depends on your age and what car you drive....

That's true of course. But always worth checking out all the different options and discounts out there out there esp when you're stuck with sky-high quotes as a new driver. From my experience over the last few days of searching, the discount was a major relief to my pocket - thought I would share it

Did you guys see that ridiculous 96p record car insurance on moneysavingexpert.com?? It was through getting these discounts and cashbacks that it was possible - amazing.

The Record... 96p for a year’s fully comprehensive coverIn October 2009, c … The Record... 96p for a year’s fully comprehensive coverIn October 2009, civil servant and grandmother Barbara Wakerell smashed the old £14 record for using this car insurance system (see MSE News: 96p car insurance). Policy Price: For Barbara the cheapest was £120.96 from Swinton Insurance for a fully comprehensive policy, with protected no claims bonus, and including a courtesy car. Insurer cashback: The company had its own £70 cashback promo on. Cashback site: She then got a further £50 via using a cashback site.All added together that means the total cost of the insurance was just 96p. Her comment, "I'm always looking for a bargain so when I found my car insurance for £120.96 I thought I was doing well. But when I also got £120 cashback I realised I had done really, really well. Can anyone beat that?"

depends what they mean by quality, if it is customer service then yes I would agree.

But it could also mean the quality of cover i.e. limits on personal accident, courtesy car as standard, limit on legal cover and etc (not implying any of these are good with Aviva, just giving examples).

Quotes can change from excess amount payable, courtesy car, types of courtesy car (like for like or standard), with or without legal cover and etc. Mostly it is just post code lottery and each company have their own data where they calculate your premium.

RAC was cheap for me last year, but after i looked a little more it was without legal cover, so I ended up with Aviva.

Don't just compare the price, compare the cover as well.

When I said “there is no reason to pay more for their car insurance than you would elsewhere”, I thought it obvious that I was referring to comparable cover.
Been getting quotes for around £600 for my new car, these guys offer me £1'230 inc 20% off, haha, I have worked in insurance for years now and it still makes no sense the difference in price from one to another, yes underwriters look at different risks in all areas but c'mon...
