    Default Wow - so expensive!

    Had my premium through for the next year.

    Car is 2.2 DTI Siggy 04-reg - no mod's.

    Drivers -
    Me / 30
    Wife / 30
    Brother / 24 (25 in Jan).
    9 year NCD protected.
    NONE of us ever had accident/claim or points!
    Both other drivers have their own cars!

    Low risk area as the price halved last year.

    Guess what it is this year ----------> £1070.00 + £111.00 breakdown cover.

    Tried all the main companies, and Adrian Flux and the cheapest is this one.

    I have battered them on price, threatened to go elsewhere and they said OK, you renewal is cancelled. Bye.

    Anyway, got it down to £974.14 for insurance with Legal Cover, NCD Protect and Hire Car.
    Going with Autonational Rescue for Breakdown Cover @ £66.00 for 15 months!

    WHERE IS THIS WORLD GOING - HOW ARE PEOPLE SUPOSSED TO LIVE!!

    Oh, and check this out, IF I take off the additional drivers it goes up!! !!!


    Bye bye Vec B

    Stupidly - if I take the additional drivers off, it goes up! How scroood up is that!

    I have tried every company under the sun, been online for 2 weeks trying to find a better one. Excess is at 150 too.

    Pathetic.

    Allegedly im in a low risk area too.

    COMPLETE RIP OFF, this country is skinning us alive and we cant do sod all about it, yet there are folk driving about without insurance and we pay for them too!


    Bye bye Vec B
