I have found Swiftcover the cheapest, but have read a few bad reports about their service. :(

That said though I have read bad reports about a lot of them. So I suppose it is a bit of a lottery and you never find out how good they are until you claim. :(

I used Moneysupermarket.com and they came up with a quote of £379 with eSure for the Type R GT which I thought was pretty good :D

Do you know about Quidco? Quidco - The web's cashback cooperative

It's a cash-back cooperative, and is genuine and works really well. Basically, before you visit a website, delete any cookies you have from that website, and click through the link to the company on the quidco site. If you end up buying a product as a direct result of that click-through, the company pays quidco a referral commission. The amount depends on the company and what you're buying but it can be substantial. (This is one way internet marketing works, people write articles about a product and provide a link to the website, thus getting referral cash on the sly. Quidco uses that mechanism to benefit its members.)

I got my last car insured with more than, using a £75 cash back offer from quidco which made the already-competitive £380 quote very cheap indeed.

Otherwise, I've always had very good quotes and good service from the AA and DirectLine. Where you get good prices from very much depends on your profile.

I went to SwiftCover.com via one of those internt price comparison websites (can't remember which one). They beat my renewal quote from Budget.

It seems SwiftCover.com keep their premiums competitive by doing most things online like getting your Insurance Certificate emailed to you...if you don't mind this way of doing business.

I don't have a problem with them yet (touch wood).

Never had a problem with Churchill or Direct Line. Both for home and car. Although they are really for Mr/s Average. Great customer service in my experience. Been with Churchill past couple of years for both home and car now, and just renewed car and they matched their own internet price which was good so I saved another tenner or so. Under £200 including protected no claims and legal cover with a £250 excess.

Its an easy equation:

Fast Car + Documented Fast Driver = Profit for insurance company!

:oops:Another Swiftcover convert..... even the renewals are competitive without asking...

Got both cars with them, and even when i had an issue with credit card fraud (elsewhere) and they could not take the renewal payment, they wrote to me and on contact we sorted the issue and they changed BOTH policies onto the new payment method with very little hassle....

Not had to make any type of claim though.....but £170 fully comp on a 2.2 diesel doing 20k+ miles a year .... cant argue with that !!

And yes i`m an old fart with no history of speeding... they cant charge you till they catch you....The motorbie insurance is £77 TPFT for a 1000cc V twin as well.....


Apologies to anyone under 30 who are probably already seething....:oops:
