Made the mistake of looking up reviews on my cheapest quoted deals. Oh dear oh dear.
Dare I risk "Go Skippy"? Slated online. But then so are the companies quoting twice the price. I have to go to four figures to get good reviews - which aint happening.

I'm waiting on an NFU callback but I expect them to be out of my range...

Just wanted to grumble I suppose, unless someone has a happy or terrifying tale?

NFU have been the cheapest for us for a fair few years now

I was comparing meerkats I think... I should try the others I suppose. Got distracted doing all the "someone-direct" ones I could think of.

The subject came up on another forum, and somebody chimed in that he had got together with some friends. got underwritten as a small mutual and saved a packet.
Makes sense from all angles, but I don't know how to do it...

I used a comparison site for first time recently.
I also saw the bad reviews.
AFAIR a lot of them seemed to be from numptys who hadn't read the T+C's properly or had some other unreasonable complaint.
Apparently a lot of the cheaper companies have an automatic renewal and this has caught a few people out.
Check for automatic renewal.

605, with basic RAC cover, fully comp. Not too bad compared to 4-500 quotes for 3rd/fire/theft with dodgy companies...


Beware of "Be Wiser" - I have already been spammed with phonecalls (suddenly they have cheaper quotes over the phone) and several emails.

That`s the trouble with being a young driver.

And your previous occupation as a Stock car driver,lol.

Seriously,that is a shock.

Why don't you try your local Swinton? They can of go off and find the cheapest for you.
