my car insurance renewal came through from the broker, they were asking £730. Five minutes of googling and entering my details and I have been quoted £230.

I have heard of people saving a hundred quid or so, but £500:eek:



:rolleyes:

Who isn't a broker these days? Even the supermarkets are.

My dad cancelled his policy with Saga. He reported a minor incident to Saga. The work shouldn't have cost more than a few hundred quid, but the insurance company paid out over £3k and didn't bother telling my dad about it until his premiums were due.... his premiums went up a lot. Personally I would avoid using Saga, even if they are cheaper. They are very backhanded.

I knew a lass who worked for Saga. They used Excel for word processing, because the staff were so over worked, they didn't have time to learn how to use Word.

Stupid hours she worked, under a really nasty bullying management structure. The hallmark of many family businesses.

I've got visions now of them bullying some old Ladies to complete some data entry.
