I recently received my car renewal notice, and, as usual, went on to a comparison website to see if I could do better than my quote (which was +17% on last year). The cheapest comparable quote was +7% on last year. What surprised me was that it was from the very same company I was already with. They seemed totally unfazed when I rang to ask them not to renew my existing policy but to start me on the other one. Loyalty is obviously bad for your financial health.

It is all an artifice. Any insurance is like this.

We had a Homeserve policy (mainly for issues we regularly have with the local drains. It kept going up and up and every year I rang and they offered a discount.
Last year I got a similar product with the Home insurance so cancelled it. Upon renewal they wanted 50 a month.

Since I cancelled they keep asking me back first offer was 10 a month, next 9 for a year and this week 1 for first year.

All a bloody con. Loyalty never pays

Insurance usually is a con, i rarely bother with it, once i got a renewal and it had gone up big time, so i phoned them up using a different name,address next door, same age, same experience and no claims, and got a quote a couple of hundred cheaper, i said ill take it, but change my name an address to me, they did!
