    Just changed the insurance from the Astra SRI (£122 a year) to the A3 they now won't £501 a year. I think I will change once it's up for renewal.

    Unless your NCB is important, it might be worth cancelling the policy and getting a new one. I don't know how many months is left on your policy, but I'm sure you can find a better deal writing off £122, than paying the £379 difference!

    So was the increase for 2 months of cover? Did you actually pay it?

    Hi JoJo
    Yes for just 2 months insurance. I have spoke to them and said it was ridicules, and said I will move car, house and content insurance away from them. I'm waiting for a reply

    You should have cancelled it and went elsewhere. But late now but one to remember for future. Had to do it on several occasions! More than offered me the cheapest insurance deal this year, beat sky insurance (who I had used for 5 years) by £200
