Car insurance quotes

Found 15th Mar 2011
Just been playing on-line with the car quote companies. Moneysupermarket was tops this year for finding me the AA for £136 fully comp for a Scenic with free breakdown cover too.

Of the 79 quotes from Moneysupermarket, 78 were under £520 (mostly well under)

But what shocked me was the worst quote from them - it is a company called Sureterm Direct for a whooping £10,174 (if I pay annual, over £11k if monthly).

It does pay to shop around, there are 48 quotes lower than my renewal (actually beating my existing insurer is my existing insurer - going through moneysupermarket knocks £15 off their posted renewal quote!).

Glad I have time and a quiet spell at work to do these things. 15 minutes there save me £60.

So anyone else renewing? What sorts of figures you getting for best/worst.

Just insured my first car (although i've had a licence for seven years) and got a price comparison best quote of £640, rang the insurer and after ten minutes had talked it down to £380.

Was surprised at the size of the discount I managed to get so it just shows it pays to try.

Just don't tell them what you paid last year.

Mine is roughly the same as last year. Although this time I get the breakdown cover too! Last year was Swinton and someone from the office there called me with this year's quote and said that it was not as competitive as last year - very honest of them and I do like having an office I can go to with a problem rather than a call centre. Maybe if they had been only a tenner more I would have stuck.
