Direct Line Car Insurance
Member Name: LisaN88
Advantages: Cheap and separate no claims bonus for named drivers.
I have been with Direct Line for nearly four years with their car insurance and I would recommend them to anyone in terms of price and ease of setting up a quote. As you go directly to them they are able to offer you a cheaper price than many of the sites that are included on the comparison websites, I have not once found anyone that charges less in my three years of searching. Don't get me wrong, it isn't like I haven't tried to find someone that might be cheaper every year, as there is a possibility that what I am paying is too much, but to no avail every time. In my first year of insurance, as a female learner driver of 17 with my own car to protect and cover and my mother to insure on my car (just in case), my insurance was approximately £1200, which is obviously expensive, but was the cheapest that I was able to find on the market at that time. As the years went by, I got older and the insurance on the same car got cheaper, in quite large increments, it is now only £450, with three and a half years no claims bonus and two years of proper driving experience under my belt. The price was also dropped when I passed my test two years ago, which dropped it by about £400. I have never had a problem with Direct Line, they contact me early enough to tell me that I have to renew and they allow my mother to build up her own new claims bonus whilst being insured on my car, adding to the many years experience she already has. As long as I have my car, and cannot find it cheaper anywhere else, then I will stick with Direct Line.
Summary: Become cheaper every year and easy to build up no claims bonus.
