Insurance

Guys

My Admiral renewal has just come through the letterbox, gone up just under 200.

Any suggestions who else to try?

Thanks

If you've got a tracker, try LV, they were cheapest for me.

That really limits your options, I could find anyone other than Admiral, who would quote without one.

They did the same to me - call them, tell them you've got a cheaper quote and they'll probably reduce it. They just put it up in the hope that you'll just renew.

Like you, my Admiral renewal quote was more expensive - double in my case! So I went with Aviva this year. with cashback through TopCashBack, I got it for 460 fully comp protected - same as I paid Admiral last year.

I don't know if they 'require' one, but as I do have one I selected it on their webpage.

Perhaps they wouldn't have quoted if I didn't select a tracker...

Admiral quoted me 300 more than last year. Call them up ... they just quote a silly price in their renewals and hope you will just renew!

I called them up and they reduced the price by 300

Just filled in an online quote with Aviva, only to be told they couldn't offer me cover. Never had that with any company before.
