Adrian Flux are only ever cheaper than others if the car is heavily modified

I had used them b4 when I built a camper van was very happy with the premium then. But I guess you can't win them all

Won't ever use Adrian Flix again they're terrible. Had to pay two charges to change the start date yes you read that right the start date!! Also moved to a focus tdci from a 300bhp mps and they told me its no cheaper and still had admin fee to pay!

On the whole f@@king useless

to be honest, my car is not in any way heavily modified, but they gave me the best deal.

 

You have to bear in mind that Adrian Flux are a broker for the insurance industry, so the gripe you have with the admin fee's etc, are more often than not, due to the requirement of the underwriting insurers policy and not adrian flux. Much like any change in your insurance policy fee cannot be blamed on the likes of gocompare, as they are only the messenger :P

 

to be fair though, this is the first year they have ever done me a better deal! more often than not, they managed to give me a price of £300 more than my renewal, but this year it was £300 less!

Ive got to admit adrian flux served me well last last year £216 for a selfbuild camper van I made where as. It was £800 before that. I think to be honest it just pays to shop around to get the best deal you can. I guess you can't allways get what you want.:rolleyes:

very true, I could have paid as little as £95 excess on a £700 policy, or I could pay a £300 excess on a £400 policy. I could protect my excess as well for £30, so in that case I would get my money back...

That's what I thought, plus all my points come off next year (5years)
So it should be even cheaper next year, fingers crossed.
