I reinsured ( the scooby) with direct line after being royally scr*w*d by
the RAC after I had done the deal I was pricing up for a Disco tdi ( turned
out to be modified so it didn't pan out) and found Liverpool Victoria were a
bit cheaper on standard motors

btw I'm just old enough for Saga ( quit giggling Dr Davis) and they promised
a discount cheap this and that but are frankly ( frilly) pants

Recently re-insured both the Freelander and the 90 with More
Than. Very competitive pricing and painless switch from
Tesco.

Had cause to use the service recently when SWMBO filled the
diesel Freelander with a LOT of petrol - started the engine.
Recovered by LR assistance to dealer half the engine changed
at an estimated K3. More Than sorted it on the phone
straight away and we had the vehicle back within a couple of
days. Not a single piece of paperwork.

The LR dealer charged us a tenner for the diesel they put
in!!

Saga gave me a great quote for new business, but when renewal time came
their quote was silly. Plus they don't like modifications, so you get a
f/off price for those as well. I went with Footman James this time. Best
quote (for Disco and S2a) by a mile.

Didn't they recover the errant petrol?

Tesco (online) always seem to work out at one of the cheapest for me.
Tesco is actually run by Direct Line, the online forms are even
identical, but I always get a better quote from Tesco than I
do with Direct Line direct!

Even though I can't stand that incredibly annoying advert,
www.confused.com is actually quite a good service and came up
with some amazingly cheap quotes (given that she has zero no-claims)
when insuring my wifes car.

Matt.

Yes they do and always given me the lowest quote for last 7 years for
110csw; and they know what it is !!
Tried to get a quote from LR UK site from the "specialists" they have; girl
at end put me on hold to check if they could insure a 12 seater ( so much
for their extensive specialist knowledge !! )

yes. good service, from my local branch anyway. probably not the cheapest
but they, unlike many others, will do the insurance I need for carriage of
schoolchildren.
