I am with the insurance company that sound like aliens for car insurance.
Last year our car premium went up $200, no claim at all during the year. I rang them and asked what was going on and they just said that that was the way it went, all premiums went up over time. I thought that was pretty lame.
So I rang around a few others to get a price and they were all about the same as the original non inflated price I was paying.
I rang aliens back as a new customer, gave them all the details, got the quote and it was cheaper than the original non inflated quote. The noob on the end of the phone then asked who your current provider of insurance is and I replied you are. He asked didn’t you get a renewal in the post, I said yep but the premium was inflated, so I called a few people and got quotes. You won! He said good thing you rang.
He cancelled the old policy wrote a new one and for the sake of a few phone calls saved nearly 300 bucks and stuck it up em.
Thank you Krusty the Klown, I spent ages putting heaps of requested info into the same pay for how much you drive insurer's website to get a quote. After having spend around 10mins doing this when I pressed to get a quote it said 'sorry we are having technical difficulties'. It seems from your post I wasn't missing much anyway. I have also found Australian Pensioners insurance dearer than other Co's when I got a quote for car insurance. The same with Ansvar who insure non drinkers so you would think the premiums to be lower, from my enquiry not so. As always caveat emptor
