    Insurance Renewal - The Robbers!

    Just had my renewal quote from Elephant for the S4Cab - Ł100 up from last year, 5 years no claims, married, clean licence for 20 yrs, professional etc etc - had to pay "extra" for "modifications" last year on new car such as full leather, met paint, bose, comfort pack, that really pis**d me off for starters but this has sent me spinning, any decent alternatives out there?

    Try admiral. They are the same company as is Diamond and Bell direct. I normally go to one of these each year. Cheers

    Re: Insurance Renewal - The Robbers!

    I'm with direct line for both of our Audi's and they seem the cheapest compared to Elephant, Admiral, Tesco, Sainsbury and Esure. Me 35 no points no claims, partner 40 no points 1 claim.

    Although I renewed mine yesterday and I got a cheaper price on-line by Ł65.00. Phoned them up and they did the renewal for the on-line price. Good job I did or Dick Turpin would spring to mind!

    Mine went up as well - have been with Tesco for the last 3-4 years. 8 Years no claims etc. Phoned up for a discount, wouldn't give one, went online, and it was Ł50 cheaper.

    In the end went with Norwich Union - they were Ł100 cheaper than Tesco! and includes full european cover (which is good - because just about to leave for a quick drive down to Croatia, and then backup to Switzerland!)

    Now that's interesting. When I bought the car last year and got my 'top up' quote from Admiral they said it didn't matter about any factory extras as the quote was only based on the basic price. Now I've got over 2k of extras on my car , so you can imagine I wasn't impressed.
    Thery reallly do make it up as they go along , I'm sure. Feckers. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

    I'm with E-Sure now . Did it all on line and saved Ł180!! Ł349 fully comp [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Me 34 Mrs 35 Both been good for a while [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Re: Insurance Renewal - The Robbers!

    I am sure insurance companies just make it up whilst on the phone. When I swapped the S-Line over for the Cab a few months ago I forgot about insurance until the day before, so phoned tesco up and they quoted me a jump from Ł350 for a modified (185bhp) S-line TDI A3 to Ł880 for the 3.0 cab (I am 31 with 3 points and over 10 years NCB).
    As I was collecting the cab the next morning I said OK knowing that i was only 2 days into a new policy so when I found cheaper I would just cancel. I wnet on autotrader and did a policy search, and the best was Ł460.
    I called Tesco and asked to talk with their underwriters, I said that I had used them for 3 years and had been happy, but why were they charging Ł880 when I could get the same policy elsewhere for Ł460?
    His repsonse? "We will drop it to Ł450 for you."

    Just like that they dropped the premium by Ł430!

    Always renew with Elephant, but never pay their renewal price just go onto the web and get a new quote usually Ł100 cheaper that I would renew at, just phone them and advise you are taking your business elsewhere, they will back down - happens every year with both my car and the wife's.

    Direct line may be Tesco but the prices are vastly different!

    Could I ask what class of use that is for and how many miles per year you tell them you would do.

    Thanks

    Fair play to you, just used the same search engine for 2004 S4 saloon and quotes are between Ł926 and Ł1925 for me (32, 6+ years protected NCD, clean licence and no accidents in last three years), and the cheapest is still Ł100 more than what I pay with Sainsbury's at the moment.
