    Renewal with Aviva £1658, up £233 from last year.

    Prestige quoted me £1540.00 for the same cover, getting lower but I am after a bit more.

    Sky, sorry about this guys, but when the guy on the phone said its more than half the value of your car, its coming in in excess of £5000 I was glad I was sitting down.

    A few hundred quid each way I can accept, but £3500 more is something I cannot grasp.

    Its where I live, its full of immigrants in uninsured cars crashing into others and driving off.

    Three and a half grand though, I would love to hear the explanation why.

    As soon as I read the first line I knew you would be from Birmingham

    Try AdrianFlux, they're the cheapest for me with my renewal coming up next month at £940 fully comp on a 1.6 A3, 3 years driving 2 years NCB

    I'm afraid the indicated price means this do not fit our car club scheme but thanks none the less for getting in touch.

    So, I called Chris Knott for a quote. Now, bearing in mind I am currently with Aviva paying £1424.88, renewal with Aviva is £1658.56.
    The lovely Kim at Chris Knott got me a deal of £1394.99, with Aviva.

    i regularly have the same when i do GoCompare. last try, the quotes ran from about £167 to £9000!!!! someone said it's just their tactful way of saying "bugger off, we don't want you". which is fine by me!

    This is my thoughts when I see a silly figure, it's not like you are ever going to buy it, but they have to quote anyways!

    I posted in an earlier thread how good I thought it was that we have three firms of brokers participating on the forum, and this thread is a good illustration of it. All three firms have contributed, included an honest and open explanation from Sky as to why they could not offer a competitive quote, and Sidibear has got a good deal at the end of it.
