Good Price

Never had to claim on it but it’s a very good price and they don’t double your payments once you’ve been with them a while on auto-renew, had it five years and think the monthly payments have only got up by about £1 which seems fair because of inflation.

Comprehensive, Friendly Service, But Expensive Renewals

Comprehensive cover at a good price, friendly service and easy to contact. However, not keen on their policy of increasing prices for renewing the policy, and not being willing to negotiate a better price.

Thanks for leaving a review, Frances.
