Ok, I know this has probably been done to death on more than one occasion, but the terrible day approaches when I have to renew my car insurance.
When I originally bought my Vectra my insurer at the time was Co-op insurance and they quoted me a rather healthy £879.00 which I thought was a bit steep. Norwich Union Direct had given me a free week insurance when I bought it to give me time to sort my policy out provided I let them quote when it was due, they came back with a quote of £500.00 which I took as I was fairly certain (and turned out to be right) that Co-op wouldn't drop that far.
Last year my renewal came in at £547.00 which I renewed never thinking about it as I was busy with other things at the time and to my cost didn't have time to look around.
So now we come to this year and I have time to look
Searching the usual websites I have come up with quotes ranging from £327.00 to £653.00, Norwich Union who I am currently with quoting mid range at £455.00 which is less than I paid last year (bet my renewal doesn't come at that price)
My current favourites are M&S at £336.32, Admiral at £348.05, Post Office at £368.61 and M&S Premier at £403.56 which includes legal cover, breakdown cover, courtesy car, key care and windscreen cover. the others have some but not all of these features.
Has anyone got any experience of these insurers good or bad before I make my choice, or any other suggestions.
Sorry for the long post but almost all of us must go through this stress once a year.
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
