Going back to the good news for today, I mentioned that my insurance premium with SAGA was the same as last year at £255. Prompted by The Hood's comment, I've checked with the meercats and the lowest quote was £5 higher for identical cover. I'm sure it is an age thing leading to a higher premium than Hoodie would accept. I could try another comparison site and put in a false birthdate with a neighbour's address, but as insurers confer I could become unstuck, so I probably won't bother. Can anyone confirm my suspicions about age-related premium increases? Mrs J and I are in our 70's.
Renewed mine with Saga recently. It was £220 but that was up from £155 with them two years ago. We are supposed to be in one lowest risk areas and that is for 5000 miles pa.Mine with Saga is £186 for the two of us fully comp and that is the total with monthly payments, i did have a quote on the 3 year thing but declined it.
Just had my house renewal from Churchill and i can get it £100 cheaper with Go Compare, i had stayed with Churchill for a few years on car and house as we had a claim for conservatory roof and i wanted to stay with them, they also matched every other cheaper quote aswell but not this time.
Dutchman, you have a really good rate there but prepare yourself for a shock when you come to renew. I usually manage to beat Saga down at renewal time but they took a hard line this year. The premium was about as good as the best I could get elsewhere though.
