As all details are corrected and a requote obtained on the insurer's
site before paying, the insurance if based wholly on truthful
Which was stated in the part of the post that you snipped.
Hoh yes, and it was one of the bigees, AXA, Aviva and Royal Sun Alliance
ring bells but for the life of me I can't find the (heated)
correspondence that passed between us when I found out so I can't say
The amount was non-trivial, 70quid or so in a 400quid premium so 15-20%.
I was more than a little cross at the time and added them to my shit
list but that's not much use if you can't remember who it was . . . .
It really just confirmed my view that they will all do whatever they can
get away with if you let them so I have no qualms about checking the
honesty of their quotes by using minor mods in my details to check
competitiveness before submitting my true details for a final quote.
It has also saved a bit of spam as a number of comparison sites hide in
with the 3 cheapest quote providers. An excellent reason to use an
invalid address at least for that stage.
May not be necessary. Tesco for one will match 'new customer' prices
without a quibble, asking for the quote ref to check that it is
comparable to the renewal. (But this year I renewed with esure for
£350 when Tesco couldn't get the new-customer price lower than £500;
the renewal was £800+)
Not this again...
And how do you think they proceed to deal with the non-existant fraud
after their faulty fraud alarms tripped?
Total nonsense - the insurance companies expect people to look at
speculative quotes and there is no fraud if the correct details are
supplied at contract time.
