In my experience the various insurance companies are often a good price for the first year and then just go extortionate to renew- it's so tedious to have to keep swapping around.

Thats what I find every year with all my insurance - house, car, motorbike etc... 9 times out of 10 I just call my existing insurance company up and they then price-match without hesitation. Leaves a bitter taste in your mouth though when they happily drop their renewal quote down from £600 to £300 without a blink of their eye. Just goes to show how much they try to rip you off on renewal.

This year however, after 6 years with admiral, they just couldnt get close to hastings who were offering me £400 fully comp with 15k a year mileage, so even though id been "loyal" to Admiral for so long, I just dropped them and moved. Will see who the cheapest is next year and do the same.

Update: I switched to AiB insurance.

Axa were a total pain, and they suggested I call the Renewals Hotline for a more competitive price, as I informed them I could get it cheaper. After 31 minutes on hold(!), I gave up. I then tried to cancel my policy online, but their website was experiencing technical issues!!

Eventually, managed to speak to a pragmatic human being who eventually cancelled my policy after my appalling experience.

AIB - though more expensive, they offered good perks such as Guaranteed Value via Hiscox. Dealing with them was also far smoother than most bog standard insurance companies. They did require a Tracker activated, but the cost with the tracker was still pretty competitive.

Speaking of Tracker - wow! First time I've used them and I must say, I was impressed! I intentionally left the fob at home and drove away. Less than half a mile up the road, I receive a text of the alert and a few minutes later, a phone call confirming the exact whereabouts of the car. I hope I never need this for real for numerous reasons, but I must say, i was quite impressed with the service and it does add peace of mind.

Anyway, shout out to AIB and Tracker, and a thumbs down to Axa.
