My car insurance was up for renewal, and I was expecting my premium to come down a little bit due to having an extra years no-claim bonus. In fact, my present insurers renewal was £440 – UP £100 from last year!
Well, I did not feel that this was fair, so went to go compare and found a range of quotes from £220 upwards. Good enough, as Car Insurance is a big con anyway in my opinion.
Then I remembered that I am a member of Quidco, and that they offer insurance deals. A quick hunt on there led to a £30 cashback deal which brought a number of the quotes down to below £200!
In the end I went with a quote for a grand total of £196 and a few pence.
So, this year I've already saved myself well over £200 for a few minutes spent on Go Compare and Quidco. Here's the kicker;
Both the old insurance and the new insurance are underwritten by the same insurer! What a con.
