    Jut got my renewal through from Direct Line. Not overly impressed with the decrease (about a tenner for the year) down to 579...

    Quick Confused.com search got me down to 450 with "Rescuemycar.com", whoever they are...

    however Sky have "quick Quoted" £786??? waiting for a call tomorrow to see if there can be any movement but on a side note, can anyone suggest anyone (or put my curious mind at rest with rescuemycar)?

    Rob, definitely give both the above a call and mention ASN, both are competitive to a point, I went with Prestige this year with my S3.

    Unfortunately on this occasion, sky couldn't compete.

    Will try prestige tomorrow :)

    Insurance really annoys me with my car home and business !
    On my car now it was £560 and then a year later they decide to charge me £900 so i phoned them up and they put it down cheaper than it were in the first place to £550, how does that come about ? :wtf:
    Just don't seem why they didn't leave it as it is !

    But in your case why haven't they put it down by a large amount ? Crazy... :scared2:

    Still struggling, same story with prestige, for me they weren't competitive. But customer service was top notch :)

    Best I have found thus far is £450, down from my renewal of £574. But it's with a company I have NEVER heard of, "rescuemycar.com" sounds more like a breakdown service than an insurer. £2-3 more per month has lead me to "premium choice" or "performance direct"

    Anyone had experience of either?

    Just got my renewal through for 400 quid. Went online and found it with the same company for 350. Rung them up and said I was not renewing and would just take out a new policy. Said they would do it for 299. What is going on with insurance !!!!!

    Well happy though !

    It's with Hastings by the way.

    Update: contacted my current insurer and really put the fear of god into them... Pointing out my 4 years of no claims with them and arguing my case. Then being told I had the breakdown add on... Didn't ask for it, so cancelled that. And took out AA at half the cost and cash back.

    Result: £579 down to £320...

    Moral: keep pushing, it eventually pays off... Oh and keep your eye on things being added to your policy.
