    Saga ,brilliant is all I can say £290ish all in fully comp two drivers . Lots of extras and great service ,matched my wifes no cliaims discount as she was already insured with them . Then her car insurance renewal has just come troiugh and because she had another policy with them they gave her a second car discountsaved another 20% . Brilliant :thumb::thumb:

    Just keep your eye on next year premium, they have a habit of making the first year cheap and each successive year lot more expensive.

    They used to be most competetive on the house insurance, no longer our broker found another reputable company £250 cheaper.

    If you try and get a quote from them on line and you are insured with them...... NO Chance, you blocked !

    When we had a claim, they were good at sorting it out though but that was when they were Saga before the takeover.

    Now that is what annoys me! If they can give you the lower rate after you have found some-one else, why cant they give that as a reward for loyalty.
    My renewal from Saga was £480 I found another company offering better deal for £250.
    Saga said Ok we will Give you the same price. My response was as my signature:Rofl1:

    Saga used to be a great company to deal with, was with them for years quotes always good and service if you had an accident was excellent, then they sold out and it all changed.

    Also had my mother and car with them (afterall they are for the over 50s supposedly with no upper age limit) when she turned 75 the quote went up by just over £200 she had had no claims or accidents girl i asked on the phone there said it was the system now they had been taken over - so they lost my mums insurance business as well you dont take a quote that puts your insurance up to double what it was

    It really gets up my nose. I have always believed in loyalty and up untill 12 months ago realised that the reward was for new customers, not for loyalty. My extra cost whent to pay for the reduced rates for new-comers. So now I am one of the cheap new customers, and will be every year untill such times as these companies realise,

    saga a warning to all

    Hi guys, newbie here,
    Never Ever give an insurance company permission to auto-renew your policy every year, because I stupidly did! it was because we were always abroad at renewal time in october and was scared of forgetting to re-insure.
    It ran ok for two years then in 2009 I told them by phone no thanks this time it was too much, going with another rival company, to make a long tale short they took out 2009 and 2010 premiums (over £600 ) each time!
    no policies ever recieved or quotes just took out the money from my credit card! it takes forever to get some of it back and no apologies or explanations! moral here always in writing and registered mail too!
    :Doh:

    Devon Monaco on Renault Master with 2.4 litre diesel engine, auto gearbox, two ancient drivers and no accidents or convictions. European recovery included.

    Comfort £280 upwards

    Saga seem to draw their quotations from the hat.

    I was with Saga .... then read the fine print! fair enough business travel not covered but also and explicitly no cover for travelling in it TO premises of work; checked and that included my going to work Friday morning and carrying on after work to go for the weekend. Probability was if I had an accident then I would have NO cover as my journey had included a visit (no matter how fleeting) to my place of work:Eeek:.

    Now with Safeguard with class 1 business cover! (and cheaper) happy days it means that I can claim expenses to travel (if available) ..:thumb:

    Saga have never been anywhere near for me whether it's car, motorhome, house or travel insurance. I've never yet had the mythical free pen sent either!
