...well, it seems I only post here at the moment to rant...

However... I thought I was getting abused on a monthly basis by Direct Line to the tune of £140 for my car insurance (Ford Mondeo Estate, 2.2TDCi fyi... doing 20K miles a year, 10 years no claims, one ban and 3 points in the past).... As that had leapt up from the £80 I used to pay per month... But due to disorganisation I forgot to hunt around and just had to take the monthly financial drubbing...

This year however, I really do feel like Direct Line are asking permission to bend me over a barrel, pull my pants down and do me with something wooden that has splinters.

Why?

My insurance renewal for this coming year is now £280 per month... No circumstances have change *at all*.

£280? What the hell? How do you justify that Direct Line? And thats with discount for being a home owner, a Direct Line home insurance hold, and all the rest...

Time to kiss goodbye to my business for the car insurance, home insurance, pet insurance, the whole lot - you are taking the piss!!

Oh - I did phone up to confirm - They said the quote is correct... I asked whether the backers of Direct Line had a Crack and Cocaine habit to keep up (didn't wait for an answer).

FFS!

£280 a *month*?! That is taking the piss.

I've just done mine, and was feeling annoyed because the best I could get was £180, compared to £140 last year. But that's the total annual cost, not monthly! Think I'll feel lucky instead.

(Swiftcover.com - have been cheapest for me 3 years running and am very happy with them - though no experience of how they are with a claim.)

Thanks for that - Going to hit them up with a quote now...

As to how good they are in a claim... Well - With never having made a claim I hope that I never have to check :-)

Wow - They are good

Bit of a kicker with the no monthly installments (for some reason)

But £914!! Wow... Cheep like the budgie...

:-)

Dude - Many thanks!

This was really doing it for me until we got to the bit about splinters

Gah! Hope you get a better quote sorted out. xx

And indeed... if it was going to have a pleasurable outcome then it would have got me going too...

However, Swiftcover.com are providing to be much more amenable :-P

Not as much as a Trish I am sure... But Trish's don't do car insurance just yet lol...

Just read that...

...no blinking surprise though... and I think I live in a Ghetto... But the quote I got from the AA supported an unhealthy cocaine habit too...
