do a search on the comparison sites then see which you can get cashback for. I got £100 cash back between my car and my van this year and it was from the company that gave the cheepest quotes.

this is the cash back site i use Topcashback

there is no joining fee as there are with some so its a no brainer in my book. so far i have had £220 cash back from insurance and computer purchases over the last 2 years, could of had more but keep forgetting to use it.

Prices range from £440 to £715

Direct line the cheapest so far! Tesco the most!

Been using Quidco cashback site for a couple of years now and about £1200 up for free!

well this has NOT been my year, a few months ago I had my van stolen and it was found burnt out about 1 1/2 hrs later minus all my tools etc. and on wednesday this week an artic lorry converted my 3 seater Vivaro into a 2 seater when they drove into the pasenger side at a set of traffic lights taking with them the passenger door c/w wing mirror, the nearside wing and the bumper, head lights etc. needless to say the driver of the lorry didn't stop and infact when i chased him (on foot) he drove off through red traffic lights when i got near to him. I gave the reg number to both the police and my insurance but sweet FA has been done
I have fully comp insurance with AVIVA and it looks like ive wasted my money
I had to uprate my car insurance to business use for last week just so we could carry a few hand tools to work and it looks like as from monday I will have to pay to hire a replacement van out of my own pocket

so one insurance company to steer clear of in Aviva

Try E-van for insurance been fairly competitive for last couple of years.

Search hasn't been working for a few days, I logged a fault with webmaster but haven't had a reply as yet. Main site search is working and you can choose results from forums so you can get results from this forum via that route.

Already with EVan insurance and their quote is £485 but was warned that there admin fees are very high so you don't get something for nothing.

My insurance broker came up with a price of £515

I insured my 1996 Astravan 1.7D for £164 with Churchill - Well pleased.

Went for churchill in the end £398 with legal, NCD protection £0 excess. Hopefully £40 to come back via cashback site and another £35 cashback for breakdown cover from AA (cheaper than churchill own and better cover).

Now just need to try and never us either!
