In Topic: Car Insurances? What Are You Paying?

25 February 2015 - 03:43 PM

My renewal will be due in about a month so started looking at quotes. Cheapest so far is Swiftcover, it was £310 with the default excess and no extras, up to £369 with total excess of £100. That includes a 10% discount for having a dashcam. I probably will be adding extras like personal injury and legal cover, but so far it's looking like a good reduction on last year :)
 
The thing I don't get is that price was from Swiftcover's site and was less than their price on Confused.com, even though I tried to enter all the details the same. Maybe it's just that Confused.com works differently. Have any of you found that you can get cheaper quotes from insurers' own websites, even if those insurers are on comparison sites?



Yeah it's always like this. I guess your just cutting out confused.com's or any other comparisons sites slice of the pie.

I always go to comparison, find cheapest then go direct. Then try non comparison sites

I loved it. Loads of power when you need it.. just not quite enough for me hence the upgrade to ST.

Not driven the 140ps but it's meant to be noticeably faster than the 125 and I bet quite a bit faster than your old astra.

Welcome to forums :) as said above your not going to get 60mpg. Maybe 50 if you drive sensibly but that will go out the window from the first time you put your foot down lol.
