    Car Insurance

    Just renew my car insurance with Direct Line and found that never take the renewal quote.
    Go on line and get a new quote from them then call up to get price match.

    If you still don't want to stay with them, Norwich Union will honor their Name Driver NCB. woohooo.

    The best option is never to tell the insurer your previous quote. Price matching is a bit of a con. I recently had almost £100 knocked off a quote. Haggle with them, it works.

    my renewal quote with elephant was £618 did some online quotes elsewhere found it bunch cheaper rang em up to cancel and they pricematched and tweaked a bit to make it even cheaper ended up paying £336 almost half the original so definatly worth trying elsewhere for quotes rather than accepting renewal!

    Do you guys go confused to get your quotes? cos the cheapest was 999! eek!
    Well going to Norwich Union next year, think i ditch Direct line, 0845 number, and their automated section is so looong.

    Edit: forgot to mention, there is a cancellation fee for £26ish with Direct Line, and this is within the 14 days period, thats so DIRRTY

    Would be nice if we have a list of insurance company that will give name drivers NCB aswell.
    so lets start;
    Direct Line
    Norwich Union

    I used gocompare.... you get £2 through quidco for any quote and its like moneysupermarket... gives you lots of options.. you pick best one for you.
