In what appears to be rather rare in the industry, my insurers keep quotes for existing customers purposely lower than those they offer new customers.
I was impressed – not only that I didn't have any costly 08 numbers to call; I didn't have to go through the rigmarole of pressing 1 for this, 2 for that; I didn't have to wait for an age listening to shocking electronic music before I spoke to an actual human! AND the human I spoke to was polite and eloquent.
My paperwork was also emailed through seconds after the end of the call.
I wonder why more insurers don't look after their existing customers as well.
A few months ago we needed to get quotes for our daughter's insurance. After searching, although the new quote I got was basically the same company as the one she was with, I had to start again and take out a new policy – long winded and annoying, plus expensive phone calls and being routed around the houses before I even got to speak to anyone.
Easy to do business with? – Yes for the first one, a definite no for the second.
