A cautionary tale of insurance

Posted on Tue 01 March 2005 in general

My credit card has just taken on wodge of debt for this years car insurance renewal. My previous insurers esure lost out on my business as they wouldn't let me proceed with getting a quote with out using Netscape 4 or IE. Tesco's also proved pretty crap, silently failing when I clicked on the "Get Quote" link. Egg proved competitive, but not quite as much as Admiral who get the honor of my business despite the tendency (shared by many insurance companies) of throwing quote windows up as separate pop-ups instead of linking through their front page. Its most annoying when you want to take full advantage of Firefox's tabbed browsing to do multiple quotes at once on one browser window. The only other negative comment is Admiral's quote page times out very quickly so I had to redo the quote several times.
