Any experience of AA insurance?

I'm up for renewal in a month, been looking around and I'm starting to think people really don't like me...

I've been with Norwich Union since I started driving, but since this year they want £880 out of me with a £500 excess I've really given up on them.
I may only be 23, but I have 5 years NCB (never claimed for anything) with just the one speeding fine (which is about to expire) and live in a sleepy village outside cambridge where the only crime in the last 20 years was a stolen beer keg from the pub...

Realistically, I can't fathom paying that much for what is only a 2.0 156. It's nothing special really

The cheapest I've gotten elsewhere is AA insurance at £520 w/ £200 excess. Most people either wanted more than a grand or wouldn't insure me which is ridiculous.

Does anyone have experience of AA insurance and are they any good for claims? I don't want to have to go through a right pullava if I do ever have a crash...

Re: Any experience of AA insurance?

ive had aa insurance before, they seem good but ive never had to claim from them so i wouldn't know about that, i wouldnt be worried about them not paying anyway just the price of ins.

have you tried tesco and direct line i often find them to be cheaper again

Dont know if Adrian Flux Ins is reliable as I haven't used them yet.
Got got a really good quote from them, so will see when I need to renew.

They seem to give a good discount for being part of a Owners club like this one.

AF are quite ineffective from personal experience. I have had quotes from them for a running two year period and they are nowhere near what I am getting from the open market!

Re: Any experience of AA insurance?

Nobody can come near to the prices Tesco have quoted me, over the last few Years, and they have been brilliant all round too. I highly recommend them in fact. Give them a ring, see what they say !!!!!......


Here is the Number, if you want to try.....0845 300 4400........


Good Luck.....

Re: Any experience of AA insurance?

Just insured with the AA fully comp @ £197.00, Direct Line who I've been with for years wanted £385, £80 more than last year, I went on line as a new customer and they quoted me £285!! they are having a laugh, they should be looking after their loyal customers, well they just lost one. We looked at loads of quotes, AA came out best.

Do they do car breakdown discount for insuring with them?

Thumbs Up

Well as a quick update, I've finally gone with Direct Line, who knocked a further £50 off of the AA price - will see how they do for me next year Philski

Tesco and Flux couldn't come close

i used the AA for my Chevette a few years ago, mainly because they were the only insurers that offered cover for any other car on a TPFT policy for no extra charge. they were equal to the best price, too..
