I think Auto renew should be banned on everything or at least be an opt in NOT an opt out because they do NOT make it clear or easy to do at time of purchase ... tis my bugbear !! I ended up paying two seperate car insurances because my existing one auto-renewed unbeknown to me and I had already shopped around and purchased my new insurance :\
how does RAC compare to AA, anyone know?
... their service is pants (see bbc watchdog)
gypsyboy mentioned AutoAid, who are now on the MSE website, and who I was with for over 20 years until this year - they were taken over by another Company and I couldn't renew online due to a fault with their website. This problem seems to be more common now i.e. a good firm gets taken over and they mess it up straight away! I am now with Eversure Insurance who charged just over £38 for comprehensive cover including home start and recovery for vehicles up to 20 years old. Top Cashback has not performed so good lately, so I used Quidco more this year who have improved a lot.
I also had a gaggle and got the same as you plus onward travel for me and me other half, in any car for £60, my colleague got the exact same as me for £40.
