Why do insurance companies screw you?
January 29, 2010 3 Comments
Today we received a renewal for our Home contents and building insurance. Whammy – a nice £200 rise. So what do we do but call the lovely Direct Line and enquire as to why the price has nearly doubled. Well apparently they sent auto renewals out – so you maintain your cover which NEVER include their loyalty bonus. So for the lazy, the stupid, the too busy – they get stung with a huge rise. By calling guess how much they were prepared to knock off? £180 there and then!
Did we renew? Afraid not. If that’s how they treat customers I think we will look elsewhere – and guess what. We can get the same policy even cheaper!
