Admiral matey. I was ragin last year as they took £165 out of my account and then told me about it after (after id already paid my renewal fee) because id done a search on gocompare with all my mods included to see how much it would cost me to get them added on even though I hadnt informed them that id done any mods when I renewed and they also tried to make out I didnt declare an accident id had in my works van again id noted this down on gocompare when I had actually told them on the phone when I renewed which they checked when I complained as they'd recorded the call and appologised. I just mentioned that this time and I think thats maybe why they didn't argue when I told them what I was willing to pay lol

Im with Admiral, and they charged me an extra £40 for my "sport lighting" cheeky beggers. Although I did push there renewal down and got key cover and protected no claims, and less excess and still paid £80 less than I would have done if I just accepted there renewal...

You've got to watch them like hawks honestly I moved from my parents house to my own appartment in a different area and they hit me with a £60 increase because apparently the area I was moving to was a higher risk area so I let it pass and just paid it. Then about 11 months later I moved back in with my parents and guess what thr tried to add another £60 on because apparently I was moving to a "higher risk area" bearing in mind it was the exact same address id moved from 11months ago. I brought this to their attention and argued it and they seemed to realise theyd been caught out and just let the fee slide lol. People who weren't so clued up would've just been ripped off its abit of a joke to be honest

no doubt,

 

I see it this way, the insurance company is readily waiting to bend me over the desk, so I am more than happy to play games and get the price down. if they ask "who quoted you that really low insurance price" I tend to just make up an insurer, they dont tend to check, so just say "ok we can match that" or "the best we can do is X" in which case I feed the line "it might cost a little more, but I am happy to stay with you as its easier, and I trust you a bit more" lol...

 

Never fails!

Insurance companies should offer 25% of your premium back at the end of 12 months if you don't have any claims.
Thay would make everyone more cautious on the roads. :)
