Shopping Around


Now I don’t know about you, but when it comes to insurance renewals.. I am lazy… I simply can’t be assed to log onto a computer… do all the searches and then change who I go with… and then you have cancel the existing policy etc.

I have far better things to do with my time.. than sit at a computer comparing quotes.  I could be concentrating on my photography… I could be out there in the sun topping up the tan.  I could even, if I felt energetic, do some housework.

But I say now!!!

Spend those few minutes Googling.. because you will be friggin surprised at how much money you can actually save.

Our buildings and house insurance is due for renewal in August… and we got the reminder from our existing insurance company of the new annual premium… Well after they picked me up off of the floor… with how much the premium had increased.  I also read the paragraph were they were putting £350 excess on water damage.

Well how wants water damage?  Who deliberately bursts a pipe?  Not us for sure.

Anyway I took myself off to see those little meerkats..


And do you know what?  Those sweet little meerkats offered me insurance at just over a third of what I would have paid if I had stayed with my original insurance.  Yes my renewal quote came in at £305  and the lowest price those meerkats offered was £116.

I opted for a more expensive package at £140, which gave me freezer contents cover, and a lot more extras… plus they insured my home contents for £25,000 more than my original insurer was going to.

So Shop Around… Believe me those minutes comparing insurance cover can save you money.  Yes we know it is easier to stick with one insurer and just pay the price they tell you.. but this is one converted person… you wait until the car insurance is due, I will be shopping around.  As well as gas and electricity.

I’m converted.

Now off to spend what I’ve saved 😀 😀 😀
