    Love Car insurance

    I received a letter from my insurance co as my insurance is for renewal next week they told me in the letter i was to pay 590 i phone them and told them i never had an accident or any penalty points and that i had rang a couple of other insurance companys up and they were not as expensive so i told them i was thinking of going with another co even though i am with this co years they told me to hold the line when they came back they told me they would do it for 490 so it just shows you they didnt want to lose business what do youse think of that got 100 of it they can do it if they want x x x

    Had the exact same thing last month, broker I was with quoted me €620 to reinsure, tried around got it for €490, funny thing was both quotes were from same underwriter, so don't know if broker was padding their end because I'd been with them a few years and they thought I would just stay. Pays to shop around

    I'm paying near €4000 a year insurance, was €3800 last year so I too told them that I would shop around, they said fine, do that but most wouldn't even quote me so had to go back to them

    It goes to show the mugs they take us for. Gotta keep them on their toes. I switch back and forth with different companies every couple of years. Keeps them honest ( kinda )

    And how do you feel when clients haggle for a few € off?

    Online insurance companies are fairly cheap. Try 123.ie for a quote. You would need to be changing around every year if you have no claims or penalty points to get the best deals.
