I signed up with admiral via bluelight card, I didn't receive the cashback which would have made the price I paid them last year competitive and this year the renewal they kindly automatically renewed is £7 more than what I paid last year. I will be switching to a cheaper provider via quidco or topcashback.
There's a lot of collusion and robbing Peter to pay Paul with these codes and cashback offers. I have a £267 insurance quote with Admiral through Confused.com. if I get another Confused.com quote via Top Cashback ((£34 cashback) and the price goes up to £319. Go to Admiral through Top Cashback directly for £60 cashback and the quote goes to £346.
Among the big 3 comparison sites, I found Confused.com around 15% cheaper than comparethemarket like for like with the same insurers. For my incoming VW ID3, Admiral and the Admiral group of companies are a lot cheaper than most (previously quotemehappy were the standout guys for me but have become expensive for me lately). Directline just aren't competitive for me, but my Dad swears by them.
Enlighten us about the Australian system, Not sure there is any difference as you still need to shop around for best prices.
Exactly. I have been with them a couple of times and they tried to fob me off on renewal with "accelerated no claims bonus" in 10 months you'd get a year's no claims... What they didn't tell you was that the insurance cover was only for ten months. I got an entire year's cover for £300! less by switching elsewhere. And the stupid thing is, that was with my previous provider who refused to beat Admiral initially. It's a massive swindle all around. The insurance needs regulating and we need a system like Australia.
