Just had a renewal quote from Admiral and they wanted 750 phoned there customer service to see if they could price match Swiftcover who quoted me 325 ... but the best they could do was 725.

When i said i wanted to cancel they said id have to send a copy of my insurance policy to them with a cover note saying i wished to cancel..so i said its ok ill just cancel my renewal payment.
Girl on the phone didnt seem too happy about that but finally agreed to send a pre paid envelope to send it in .. needless to say i wont be sending anything .

As if Swiftcover's quote wasn't good enough after sending off my proof of NCB i got an email back today saying id got it wrong and i was entitled to 2 years more NCB than i had been quoted ..
and there crediting me with 8.06 id over paid

I find, its best to look around. A company that was expensive last year may be cheaper this year. With Hastings Direct at mo, but they were out of the running last year! My premium at mo is 369.49. One reason its cheap is I said NO to legal cover, and breakdown. You have to be careful of the "add ons" I have my own legal and breakdown. Garage, limited mileage, plus my job is low risk. Lucky I live in a low risk postcode..............Its not easy...

Very true. When I was still married, my car a Rover 214SEi was insured with the co-op. I moved out and stayed with my parents in a much nicer part of the town. Clean, could leave doors open you know... Anyway rang up the insurance to tell them my new addy, they wanted another 90!!! I said why? Reason my new postcode had more claims than the old one. I said thats cos no-one in my old area had insurance to claim on lol. They said sorry, 90 please.

Thats why where I live, its so cheap, as I live above a shopping estate, so the majority of postcodes dont have car insurance, so the claims per person are very low.

My cars are a mix of Swiftcover and Tesco, although Swiftcover quoted less on all 3 last year I couldn't be bothered to move my policy over for the sake of a tenner.
I've very lucky to live in the middle of what must be one of the cheapest postcodes in England for insurance. My ZT-T 190 came in at 230 this year, although oddly the renewal on the ZS is actually higher at 280!!!! Must just be down to the theft risk / accident rates on the 2 cars I guess.
