    Unhappy car insurance.....

    just had my renewal through from direct line who i have been with for the last 10 years,and correct me if im wrong but i thought the price of your car insurance should go down each year not up . no convictions,im a year older,full no claims discount and all mods declared.
    looks like its time to go on to one of those go compare sites
    does anybody elses insurance companies try and stick it up them?

    I left them in sept last year after they did the same thing..

    Every year they could match quotes from other companies... Last year they just didnt seem to want the business and wouldnt match at all... in fact they wouldnt even try!!

    After 6 Years they lost my custom.


    Try the insurance broker on here... its worth a shot..

    They try a few comparison sites.. then go to the cheapest one direct as it sometimes comes out cheaper again.

    I do change companies from time to time, but I've quite often found them good at matching prices.

    Tesco insurance did the same to me after about 6 years (underwritten by the same company as Direct Line).

    They may not be right for you, but I'm currently with Priviledge, who I find brilliant, offering good service and competitive pricing (They are also underwritten by the same company that underwrites Direct Line).

    The AA is only a broker, but they do often come up with cheap prices (for me). However, I don't like the attitude of the company, so I tend not to insure my car with them, but use them for bargaining power with other companies.

    You may find if you went to Direct line as a new customer then they will do it cheaper. Fill in their on line form and see what quote they give. As mentioned try the guys on here, also its worth signing up to the pistonhead website and going through them to get a quote from Adrian Flux. Im 28 have 7 years no claims and pay £300 through them for my V6 CDTI all mods declared. Going to try the guys off here though come renewal time

    To get the best prices you need to change companies these days. You get nothing for loyalty. They seem to give a high price for a renewal and as soon as you call up to cancel the auto renewal the price comes down as if by magic.

    An insuance broker in town does mine!! No hassle or anything, a friend who lives in York uses them too because of the service and attitude you get. With three cars insured under different companies we get a nice discount and insurance certificates to hand if we lose one!

    I'm with Adrian Flux and when I got my renewal quote in I got a cheaper price elsewhere, called them back and not only did they match the price, they offered a smaller excess and better benefits. Very happy. Will definitely give Chris Knott a shot at it when I come up for renewal again in Dec though.

    They try to put it up every year! I'm with performance direct with one of my policies atm as Adrian flux wouldn't/couldn't match it even though my signum is with them! 100% it won't be next year!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I've never yet found the comparison sites to offer the best prices; I usually ring round all the companies I can find on the net and in the back of What Car? then play the best two or three off each other, before rining my current insurer back to cancel - this usually results in them beating the best new quote by a few quid.
