Ouch, we insure all 3 car for less than that & one is a learner car.

I guess thats the price you pay for living in a city.

Just heard back from my broker, They quote 525 for the same policy as last year with a 350 excess so I think I will go for the Hastings full Monty package this year.

Mrs 12Bore's car insurance ends at midnight, it has been with Swinton for the last 2 years and the renewal didn't look too bad, until I contacted the Meerkats, who brought up Swinton as the second cheapest option, not bad I thought, then I looked at the figures, the Meerkat's Swinton (with the same options) was 37% cheaper!
Quick call to Swinton's sales line and we have the cheaper option...

We've just had a quote for our oldish Mondeo diesel from our existing insurer of 285.00 . Karen is the policyholder and has had a full licence since she was eighteen and I've been driving for well over thirty years. We have full no claims bonus.
The meercats gave us a quote of about 170.00. I phoned the old company up and they said "now you've phoned us up, we can be more competitive" and promptly gave us a lower quote by 85.00.

Thats why they want you to put it on direct debit!
They then hope you won't notice its gone up.
We have verything with the NFU so all vehicles, farm vehicles, trailers etc and it was 818 then noticed suddenly it was 919.
OH rang them up and and asked WTF going on and they said oops sorry must have been a typo and promptly refunded diff but if we hadn't noticed it would have just gone zinging out the bank and they'd be quids in. They rely on you being too busy to notice the difference and being bothered to grumble about it.
BT are another lot of slink hounds and the Lec board!

408 this year but i have changed my job title from chef to nursery worker and they are happy with this since my employer is a nursery.
Quite pleased it's getting cheaper but I'm not sure if being over 40 with 12 years no claims helps to lol

Thank you the Meerkat!

Churchill also wanted 103 for Green Flag, Green Flag wanted 84,
