Swiftcover.com! I had never heard of them until I saw one of their strange ads on TV, I wondered who the hell is that weirdo and who are they? It took me a couple of takes before I realised it was Iggy pop, what has he got to do with car insurance??? Anyway it just so happened that my Car Insurance was due a short while after the Penny had dropped, so like a good little soldier I dutifully filled in my details on one of the Comparison sites and lo and behold out at the top, with a seriously cheaper quote than the next lowest was............ yes, you guessed it, Swiftcover.com - By quite a margin. Just for a bit of background for you, the cover was fully comprehensive, with protected no claims, on a newish Volvo V70 estate.
Now this occurred back in May 2009 but the figures are quite startling. The range of quotes - Swiftcovers excluded, covered a range down to £257.00 a year (See: - there are benefits of being a bit older and wiser...), the upper figure is irrelevant. The Swiftcover price was £197.00 - £60 pounds cheaper... That is a lot of money, percentage wise, on a relatively low premium in the first place.
I was most surprised at this difference, so I did some serious checking on quality and range of cover etc, what is and what isn't excluded. There was no problem on this front, the cover was exactly what I wanted, it was simply 25% cheaper than the best of the rest. There was no contest...
I filled in the appropriate on line forms - very painless. I printed off the certificate of insurance, must admit this didn't feel quite right but apparently is perfectly OK. The only other thing I had to do was to mail them the proof of my NCB. It was that simple - 25% cheaper for what? A few minutes work on line and a letter in the post. I just wonder how good the quote will be this year??????????
I can't comment on any claims or Customer service type queries or problems as thankfully I have no experience of them. But my experience of the actual process of obtaining their quote and changing over to them made me very, very happy. As well as £60 better off.
I have no hesitation in recommending them so far, and suggest that you all try them when your renewal time comes around.
Summary: I didn't think it would be this easy to save 25% on my insurance, give them a try, what can you lose
