My insurance went down!

I have been with LV for several years and for me they seem to come out with a competitive price which I always check on renewal. This year my insurance quote from them went up from 275 to 302 so I got on comparethemarket and the best quote for an identical policy was 252 from LV ! So I called them up and they just said "OK we can match that but you won't get any Meerkat vouchers or things as we will deal with it as a direct call to us" Not a problem I said and proceeded. Presumably they don't have to pay a referral fee to comparethemarket but I can't believe that it's as much as 50 3 x FL1 2 manual + 1 auto no real problems
FL2 S 08 reg 100k no problems

FL2 GS 60 reg xfer box, diff and wheel bearings

Topcashback will give you 20.20 back on an LV car policy if bought through them so you can assume they are getting at least double that. Past: FL2 TD4 HSE Auto

I just renewed my FL2 and my wife's Lexus ct 200 , bizarrely both are 200.48 each with Churchill, mine has gone up 9 and the wife's has gone up 6 , that's with the legal insurance thing . We also use Churchill for the house insurance. Do it now ! Your a long time dead !!

Just going through it myself. Try a online application to LV as I found nothing worth having cheaper last week in a Leeds post code. 51 Series one passed/sold on half restored to a mate to finish years ago.

Re; LV. Filled the online forms in and added Tinting in the modifications section, up 24.90 on no modifications.
Anyway took out policy with no modifications and have now decided to tint windows rear doors and back so rang them up to amend policy and have been quoted the grand sum of 8.51 to add Tinted windows. Rolling Eyes If it wasn't so bad it'd be funny.

I paid £453 last year for our Evoque with LV. This years renewal price was £426. Just been online with LV as a new customer, EXACTLY same details including excesses (plus I’ve had a windscreen claim during my current insurance period). Fully comp, two of us driving, protected No claims plus business use and it came to .......£291. Past: FL2 TD4 HSE Auto
Present: Evoque SD4 Dynamic Lux Auto

Exactly the same happened to me earlier this year - LV put my renewal up. Searched and found LV was cheapest on Comparethemeerkat. Rang LV and they matched it, and I saved £50 and stayed with LV. Jules

Crooks the whole lot of them. Hate when they quote you one price as their ‘best’ then when you go back to them after checking elsewhere it magically goes down. Why can’t they give u the best Censored price first time round? Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

Because they think we've all got mug tattooed across our forehead and will accept that renewal. There's enough people who will accept their figure, without question, for them to continue the practice year upon year.

I have confidence in L.V. that they will handle any claim quickly and completely to my satisfaction, unlike many of the so called cut price companies, also they do provide full cover on all my 4X4 Response equipment 24/7 and any deployment with our user services and this may include road closures when deployed by Kent Police.

Yes, I stayed with LV because I had no trouble whatsoever having my screen replaced on our Evoque this year. No quibbling when I told them I wanted a genuine LR one either. Also, they are one of the few companies that (a) don’t insist on a tracker being fitted and (b) cover the panoramic roof under the glass section of the policy instead of the general section of the policy. Past: FL2 TD4 HSE Auto

I've been with LV for many years and every year my policy goes up, I call them, then I get a reduction.

Didn't bother calling them this year though, as my policy went up by just 60p. 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲

Looks like car insurance is more stable this year with the insurance companies now taking the Censored with big increases in house insurance premiums. Crying or Very sad 51 Series one passed/sold on half restored to a mate to finish years ago.
