So Direct Line sent a letter to inform me that my house/contents insurance expires at the end of this month and want £100 more than last year ...no I have'nt made any claims!

Applied again online and the same cover is £150 less than they want now for exactly the same cover...wots all that about, so i'm thinking phone them up and cancel existing policy and take it out again..wot you reckon??

Shocking isn't it. Dave is spot on, they assume you'll not notice/care/have the energy to swap. Crooks...

I phone up to cancel and take a new policy every year. They just ask why you are cancelling and when you tell them they say OK. The online discount is for new policies, not new customers. Aren't 0845 numbers free to dial from BT.

There policies do state they are auto renewel so you do sign up to that.

No, they're the price of a local call. Problem is, if you get inclusive local calls as most people do nowadays, you have to pay for the 0845 call plus they're a fortune from a mobile. The business doesn't get any money from it, they're trying to do you a favour! 0870 numbers offer a kickback to the business though, they're a proper ripoff.

Ah yes comparison sites.

You are aware that most of the comparison websites compare companies that are owned by the comparison web site??

This makes interesting reading.

"RBS Group – the Royal Bank of Scotland Group includes our old friends Direct Line, plus Churchill,Privilege, NIG as well as insurance sold branded as Tesco Insurance, Natwest, Virgin Money, MBNA,BMW Insurance, MINI Insurance, Mint, Egg, Nationwide, Age Concern, Vauxhall Insurance and several others!"
