Bearing in mind how easy it is to get online quotes for all types of insurance, there is absolutely no reason to renew a policy before doing an online check of the prices offered by other companies. Last year I bought my house cover after getting a selection of quotes from a price comparison website. A few days ago I received a phone call from that insurance company telling me that the renewal was imminent and that the cost had only risen by a couple of pounds. When I answered that I was going to check prices from their competitors online before renewing, the insurer managed to find a quote about 20% cheaper than his original offer. Not to be outdone, I visited my trusty comparison site and managed to get precisely the same cover for a further 20% less than his cheapest quote. Let me say once more…NEVER Never never renew an insurance policy without checking other insurers online. All of the insurers offer low prices for new customers, so take advantage of this and switch to a new company whenever you can get a better deal. Unless there is a very good reason to stay with your current insurer then don’t fret over showing disloyalty to them, I guarantee that they won’t show any loyalty to you if you’re in the unfortunate position of having to make a claim!.
