    Default direct line insurance ****** hell!!!

    My insurance is due in a week or 2 so lookin round for qoutes on my 03 2.2dti elite. Tried Direct Line first, they quoted me £1021
    Then tried Confused.com, Swift cover came out the cheapest, they quoted me £530
    So think i will be going with them. I cant believe how expensive direct line is.

    ...found the same mate, 8 years no claims, no convictions etc.. Churchill quoted me £850 on a 2.2dti sri.

    scandalous...I just dont get it, my renewal on the 1.8 Focus I traded in against the veccy was half that price.

    Have you tried Adrian Flux for a quote?
    If the car is modified, a lot of companies charge for the mods.

    With Adrian Flux, car is insured with all mods declared

    the car is totally standard apart from the tail lights. The quote direct line quoted me today was £50 more than what i paid last year and i didnt have any no claims bonuses last yr either (i got my very first yr's no claims bonus this yr, due to having company cars for the last 6 yrs)

    £530 still seems steep mate! Do you have points etc? I only pay £300+/- for mine, and i'm only 23.....although it is only a 2.0DTi

    armed with the quote from confused.com ( who are middlemen for the insurance company) give the insurance companies a telephone direct.

    i was told that telephone sales people need to achieve a set target by the end of the month. if they have not reached that target they may be willing to discount to get your business. worth a try...

    also there are a lot of companies not with confused.com.....remember that.

    i found admiral was cheapest for me as they combined my two cars on one policy.....strange but true.

    i fear you have a lot of hours on the telephone....remember they want your business................

    I find that if you give them a call they might give you a better deal if you challenge the premium.

    I had a bit of problem with Direct Line when i was getting Buildings Insurance. They quoted me nearly £200 on the phone, i went onto their website and got a quote for £110. ???
