Panda Insurance

Renewal time for my wifeís Panda Trekking TA. From a well-known provider another £30 hike to £242 to follow on from last year and the year before. Can anyone recommend an insurance company that treats customers with 20+ years NCB in a fair way?

Presumably by 'recommend' you mean 'find' and 'fair' you mean 'better priced'.

That's a 'no'. Ours are within £20-£30 of your price (cheaper) though they're 1.2s.

Re: Panda Insurance

You can try broker I've used for decade. BP - 01253 393106. Think they count up to 9 years NCB. The figure on your existing renewal docs was enough proof for them when I joined. See how you get on. They will do their best to match comparison sites too.

Thanks for your help Dan

First I'll try to beat them down with quotes from comparison sites.

Don't want the hassle of change but will if necessary.

Re: Panda Insurance

Got 11 yrs NCB and changed every year, don't see it as a hassle personally if it saves me money
All of the forum schemes are worth a try once you have your ballpark figures from the comparison sites

I was promised I wouldnít get any lower than what your broker came up with, I remember it was around £1000, including forum discount etc.

I renewed with direct line and got it for £860.

Re: Panda Insurance

Taking breakdown and legal/courtesy car away from what I paid, that makes my insurance around £215. Cheapest ever paid. Don't forget if worst happens insurer paying out 20-30 times your premium. They're niot a charity.

Re: Panda Insurance

Legal is worth having, imo. It paid for a top solicitors' firm and amazing barrister after my wife was rear-ended by an HGV on the A14 some years ago. As a result of their careful case preparation and expert negotiation, the settlement she eventually received was nearly 10 times what the other side had originally offered. Not a bad return on a £25 premium.

Re: Panda Insurance

To update everyone. And thanks for the input.

My wife phoned LV and they agreed to knock 5% off their original quote. Now £230.11 which she is to go ahead with as she wants to stay with them. Must admit they are usually very efficient.

Re: Panda Insurance

Just got a quote of £153 from Hastings Direct. Should have the renewal from Direct Line anytime as insurance is due 19th July. Last year they hyped it up and after a call got it reduced by £50 to £114 but no doubt it will be dearer.
Will update with their quote once I get the renewal.

Re: Panda Insurance

Hi.
Just noticed a mis type on my last post it wasn't £114 it was £174 last year.

This years renewal from Direct Line is £192.64 but after a phone call I have now got it at £172.48.

I did try Adrian Flux today but they were £221.

Although Hastings Direct were cheaper it works out £2.05 per month more as I pay monthly and their APR is more than double that of Direct line. So this will be my 14th year with Direct line.
