    insurance-has yours gone up

    had my renewal today and a shock that its gone up from Ł320 to Ł420,especially when I changed my focus (g17) was told it would probably be cheaper next year with a lower group car.Went on some compare sites and not much difference there either.

    I think all insurance has gone up.
    There was a thread about it some time ago.

    I'm not looking forward my renewal next year, The VAT would be up to 20% then.

    Mine went up this year, the renewal the year before, I got insured for exactly the same price as the years before that, despite steady drops in the previous years. With the increase of crash fraud and whiplash injuries, the genuine motorists has to foot the bill unfortunately.

    Mine went up as well this year, had the renewal come through, but then did a quote online as a new customer and it came up Ł200 cheaper than the renewal in the post, rang up and got them to do it even cheaper.

    So yea it has gone up compared to last year, but not as much as expected initially!!

    Yep paid Ł320 last year and my renewel came in at Ł600+. Tol dthem I wan't prepared to pay that and if they couldn't cover me for Ł400 they'd lose my business. 10 minutes later I had cover for Ł400.

    Mind you they then sent some of the paperwork to my ex's parents place where I was living while the purchase on the property went through. My ex and I split about 2 years ago and it was less than a nice one. I called the insurers up and had a wobbler at them and they wrote an apology for their cock up and reimbursed me Ł100 as well.
