Hi Nick & Dan, i have tried getting quotes from you guys previous years, but you guys were not even in the ball park, so i must admit that i have not been as thorough as i shouda been.
But, the reason for my post title is that i rang hastings and got a £165 quote fully comp, protected no claims (16yrs), 44yrs old male with 3 yr medical licence (Type1 Diabetic for 34 yrs). Banking/Academic, car kept on private drive. 4000 miles per year.
Rang back Admiral and spoke with very pleasant girl and told them that Hastings were coming in at £165 and would they match? ..... Considering i have been with them for so long and i was told no but £170 was as low as they are now prepared to go. I know im splitting hairs now and im happy with Admirals quote but what peeved me off was ....
....."We have your bank details on file and will automatically deduct the agreed amount on the due date, unless you contact us first".
I began to feel my anger rise and politely told the girl that i had not given them permission to retain my bank details (Always make full one-off payment), if i have i was duped? Please remove my details from your database. .......Cheeky Buggers!
