Last year, I found that Privilege were just about the cheapest for me and seemed like a decent, reliable company too.
So I was a bit surprised when this year the renewal showed a a double-digit percentage rise (after taking into consideration a special 'discount' that they were applying to the renewal as an existing customer).
After spitting out my cornflakes, I called them to ask how they could justify such a large rise in such these hard financial times and almost instantly, they said they could 'do' it for rather a lot less.
From which I learned:-
a - That they really do think they can get away with putting up your prices because you won't notice when you come to renew.
b - That if you question it, they'll give you a better deal.
c - That loyalty discounts are merely a smokescreen.
I would add that Privilege are still good value - I did shop around and didn't find a significantly better deal - but they don't give you their best deal automatically. I imagine that goes for every other insurance company too.

the company we were with came out 24th even as anew customer, it was more expensive than their renewal.
SAGA came top but not with all the bits added.
Believe it or not the AA was best for us last year.
No doubt it will be someone else next year though.
Loyalty what loyalty no such thing these days.
