Was last year your first year with them? This happens to me EVERY year, that's why I change EVERY year.

Neat tip: Use the postcode and address of a neighbour you particularly dislike along with a fake name when using GoCompare, then use TCB to claim your cashback. Saves all sorts of junk mail and marketing rubbish collecting on your doormat.

used them last year with a junk email address and so glad i did, so yes good idea, i would do a thumbs up smiley but hey ho *insert rollie eye smiley here when you find them*

Yes, they hook you first year with a cheap quote then up it the next year. If you want to stay with them, get a quote elsewhere then ring their cs and tell them you've been offered better elsewhere but will stay if they beat the quote you found.

Is for me. Good quote to get hold of you, then try an bump it up an hope you stay with them.

Yup, good call. I actually lied when I said I changed EVERY year. Last year I acually stayed with Admiral because they dropped their renewal by 500 when I did exactly this.

Yes mine was £129 last year and this year £208!Thats over 60% increase!

cheeky boggers aint they

Aviva were the cheapest for me on my last renewal (when including the £70 quidco cashback promotion they were running at the time), I'm not sure if they show up on price comparison websites either?

Don't forget to factor in quidco when searching as a lot of companies give good returns.
(aviva currently £30)
