Has anyone used them or had any dealings with them?

They seem to be coming up on the comparison sites with some remarkably good quotes for my renewal, and I was wondering if there was a catch? scratch

There is a catch - they are due to float on the Stock Exchange imminently and therefore are trying to bolster their 'book' as much as possible to be seen to be an attractive investment - they are a real life company and are as good as any other fwiw

enjoy the savings!

Hi Neil

I insured the GP with them with there Hastings Premier pack. I did have the JCW insured with them as well but when I had the induction kit fitted I had to change to Admiral as Hasting don't insure cars with modifications. I think Hastings had 3 different pack and the Premier is not the cheapest but you get more in return

I used Hasting for my V6 Ford and really competitive at the time, when I brought the Mazda they were expensive..

Never claimed so no idea how they perform then!

Chris when I asked Admiral about mild mods they didn't want to know.

Having worked in the insurance industry for over 20 years it is as Lee said, if they are looking to booster their book then good deals if they have a good book then they can be more picky and charge what they want...

PS sometimes it can be cheaper to go directly to them after getting the price from a comparison site, always worth a call to see Smile

I'm with admiral they were the best price declared being lowered, rear spoiler, graphics, and painted parts and made no difference to the premium
Plus there multi car policy is great to if you have a family of cars

Thanks Chris, I decided to go with Hastings Premier as I have no imminent plans to modify the GP. They were £100 less than MINI Insurance were quoting, even after a bit of haggling, and it looks like a very comprehensive policy.

Though it still bemuses me that it's cost me so much less to insure a nearly new GP than a 2006 R53 JCW ...

When I traded my 4 year old Cooper S Clubbie for a brand new JCW Clubbie my insurance was cheaper as well...

Just insured the Cooper, £145pa with a £21 cash back Smile

Also interesting is I used Confused for a comparison on Julie's a few weeks back, found the company that seemed ok then went direct and it was nearly £20 cheaper plus £21 cash back so not to fussed at missing out on a Brian Wink

What sites are you using to get cashback Dave? I'm with Flux at the minute as they were bang on for one of mine, the other not so but I was short on time so went with it as it was only a few quid, but I will be comparing this time round just in case!
