Pah! Renewal of my car insurance last December cost me 53% extra!
Feeble excuse was cost of repairs had risen, probably due to electric vehicles.

Hi

Just renewed my car insurance. Managed to get it for just £13 more than last year  :D they did want an extra £140 originally.

Cheers

Which just goes to show how much they do care about their customers. Why should we even have to ask for a reduction? They should treat us as valued customers, not someone they can try and rip off at every renewal! :(

Just had my car road tax reminder. Increase of 22.6%
How the hell can anyone justify this? (without going down the politics road, please)

Relax.

Standard procedure for companies. Go do some homework on the comparison sites, you'll be fine.
