This really hacks me off with insurance companies (I and work for one, albeit in IT!). If they are prepared to offer you the policy for £159 when you call up to cancel, why quote you £360! I suspect if they had quoted you £159 up front, you wouldn't have bothered shopping round.

Not sure if its a general thing or not, I was insured by Sureterm direct on a Tiger cat last year, got a renewal notice a week ago, rang them to tell them I'd sold the car and wouldn't be renewing with them , they told me they had a £50 charge for cancellation fee, I asked if there was a hidden joke I'd missed somewhere, "I'm releasing you from a contract of risk, and you want me to pay YOU £50 for it !!!!!!! The answer I got was" your policy is in force for another 22 days so it is a cancellation Anyhow I told them I still had the car, I had just taken a deposit on it but it was still in my garage,and I would contact them in 22 days time to say I wasn't renewing with them. Needless to say they can stick their insurance where the sun don't shine

The last car I sold was still insured for over 4 months after I sold it, just not worth cancelling the insurance to pay for the privilege

Understanding insurance brokers is certainly beyond me. I recently received a renewal notice for my previous 2b from Aidrian Flux, I say previous 2b because I sold it last year, I didn't cancel the policy for reasons in my previous comment (above Simons). The renewal was £123 for a 69 year old with milage limitation to 1500 miles, I rang them and said I wouldn't be renewing as I was selling the car, they asked if I had chosen another car as they could give me a really good quote as an exsisting customer. My latest car is a one off, but basicly the same as Hoodie, same 2itre pinto (but E.F.I.) roughly same value, same address, same milage restrictions, but this time being a member of RHOCAR, I was expecting more discount, the quote £155 ????? an increase of £32 in a matter of hours from receiving my initial renewal notice. ( they gave me the impression the model of the car was being treated as a RH, so no difference there!! ) I tried Graham Sykes, went through all the questions and answer's, the operator then told me with the car being "one off" they would need photographs of it before giving a quote. I rang Pickles £143, then eventually A plan, what a difference, polite, very helpful, no problem.... £110.... With half the accident excess and half windscreen excess of Aidrian Flux !!!!!!!!

The saga continues, had a message left on the answer machine last night," Hello, Frank Pickles insurance here, we've managed to be able to find a cheaper quote than we gave you earlier, we can do it for £106, (£37 less than they quoted earlier in the day) please ring if we can help"

 

I give up trying to understand their methods of arriving at a quotation :80:
