Re: QuoteMeHappy denying to insure my Kodiaq

I know it was 2018 when I had my Kodiaq, but then Aviva were charging me £212 fully comp (1.4 SE L DSG & seats)
As I said, it is impossible for two people to compare insurance quotes unless all their details are identical.
I have ALWAYS found comparison sites far more expensive than direct approach. I have given up using them now. It is also, in my experience, cheaper to arrange cover over the 'phone AFTER you have got a price on line and complained that it is too expensive.
I have been insuring cars since before most of you lot were born. (57 years) so I know most of the wrinkles.

Don't know if this is relevant but insuring my Kodiaq VRS from new cost me £201.............cheapest renewal premium via Confused is £294.

So a near 50% hike, I guess there have been some hefty claims involving Kodiaqs since they launched.

Admiral will never knowingly get a penny of my money. Horrendous company.
Everyone has a different experience.

Admiral voluntarily gave every one of their car policyholders a £25 refund this summer (I know as my wife is insured with them) because due to coronavirus their claims volume had gone through the floor.

A nice touch I thought.

They then tried shafting her on her renewal price and when I used their live webchat (which is excellent) to cancel, they managed to match the previous year's premium.

So by and large I'm happy with them.

Perhaps as you are their customer then they are not quite so aggressive with you but when you are on the receiving end it’s completely different. To add insult to injury it wasn’t me at fault.

Additionally how can you trust any company who will match the previous years premium only when you want to leave, I know most do it but why can they not show loyalty when threat is made. They wouldn’t get my repeat custom unless it’s significantly lower than someone else. If i got a similar quote from someone else I would move on principle.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.
