Car Insurance

Yes I know it’s St. Stephen’s Day/Boxing Day depending on whichever side of the pond you live on but I’m off on a rant.

I had to pay my monthly car insurance instalment last week and thought I’d better tell the company of my new address. I was gobsmacked when I was charged an extra €60 because of this. It’s not even the admin charge, it’s because our address has a higher premium….we are still in the same village, in fact we are only 1km up the road from the old house!

I have been on to the company who said they would get back to me – they didn’t. The extra €60 only covers me until my insurance needs renewing in March. I don’t think I’ll be staying with Aviva (post insurance) next time around. Car Insurance in Ireland really is a rip off.

      1. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for you, Val. We all know that insurance companies are not very customer friendly; there should at least be a hint of it. 😦
