Was in the News the other week. It's down to the maximum injury claim going from ~3m to 15m!

It's any excuse with the robbing sods.

I'm quite lucky in that my renewal is pretty much what I paid last year. Still 20 years accident free on a 206 for 638 blows.

The comparison sites all quoted between 70 and over a grand!!!!

The sooner I sell my house the better. Putting my girlfriends address in reduced the best price to just over 300.

We renuwed are car insurance last month and it had rocketed up by 300 pound!!! When I rang them and questioned it they said because of all the snow we had inn january and ice it lead to a lot of crashes and a lot of claims! Which is why are insurance has gone up to pay for the claims that have been. Payed out!! Ridiculous!

Add another complaint to the list, mine doubled, from 500 to 1000. No accidents, claims or points or anything either. 7 years NCB as well. Disgusting. And of course, it being compulsory, means that they can charge what they want, and we will be forced to pay it.

I was told it's 'cos of all the fake claims - car full of guys slams on the brakes for no reason and the car behind runs into them... all inside claim for whiplash, lost wages, medical treatment, etc. etc. etc., basically whatever they can get. Whiplash is very difficult for the insurance companies to argue against as it can't be proven that someone does not have whiplash, and there are loads of ambulance-chasing scum-sucking solicitors out there willing to do no payout no fee deals.

Not being racist here, but it is a popular trick with groups of Asian lads. The insurance companies are wising up to it, but in the end we all end up paying for this fraud. That's why your policy premium has shot up.

My insurance renewal with eSure went up about 60 quid, so I shopped around and went with Iggy (swiftcover.com) and saved 150 quid. Mini Cooper, 17 years no claims, 200 quid.

I think those comparison sites - gocompare, comparethemarket, confused.com - are all a big con. They get a cut if you buy your policy through them. Best to sit down with a pot of tea and work systematically through the various sites yourself, buying direct rather than through a brokerage. A pain in the arse but it's only once a year.

Another tip is to sign up with a cashback site, such as quidco - the amount of do$h you get back can be substantial.

I want to add about going through the likes of Quidco. The money that the comparison sites would normally get goes back to you instead through these cashback sites.

We got 60 this year for our car insurance. It works out as more than 10% of our premium back for doing the work ourselves instead of getting the comparison sites to do it.
