I like the sound of this deal, I wonder if it takes into account the cashback schemes offered by Quidco and the other cashback wesite. My current insurer was the cheapest/best cover available through confused.com but buying it through Quidco got me another £70 off.

This will be very interesting, my insurance is due in April, at the moment with Adrian Flux, who cover all mods on car, most insurance company's will not cover more than 3 mod's on your car, Adrian Flux have gave me a good quote 2 times now and no one came near it, they believe that if you are a mature driver with mod's on your car, then you will look after it, because of the money you have spent on it, infact 90% of the insurance company's just did not want to know because of the mod's and after the bother i had with a previous insurance company (e-sure), when my car was vandalized, anything was a mod, had me for my tinted windows and my rear stainless steel exhaust, so now i am with a insurance company that have took everything into consideration, less of a headache later if something does happen, especially when they say they are not going to pay out.

Hmm,I'm already with Chris Knott and have been for 3 years now due to introduce a friend scheme - they have always managed to beat my best quote hence the 3 yr spell with them

Wonder if I can get any extra discount??? :P

Hi Tim (@ Chris Knott)
Do you offer breakdown cover as well? If I give you my best quote inclusive of breakdown cover will you be able to match that too?
thanks
Tim

Hi,

I am really sorry, but I have never known such difficulty in getting a simple quote from an insurance company. I have been trying now for the last 2 mondays and every time I call, I am told that everyone is too busy to talk to me and to either try again later or they will call me back.

If this is how good this company is at selling i dread to think how claims and problems are dealt with.

Sorry to publish this, but it is really disappointing and this seems to be the only way to air my frustration.

I'd just like to say that this announcement came just in time for my renewal, and Chris Knott offered a very competitive quote that I accepted.

I think the user above who struggled to speak to anyone must have experienced a bad day, because I have had no trouble using the telephone or email.

Hi All.

Just like to say thanks to the guys at Chris Knott. Not only did they beat my insurance renewal, and my best offers on confused.com and moneysupermarket.com, but when i rang up (at 4.53) - just before the bank holiday weekend - they managed to sort EVERYTHING and be wrapped up by 5pm!

I hope the guy I chatted with (sorry i didn't catch his name) is sitting in the pub now with a well deserved pint.

It's a company I will definately be reccomending to my fellow Seat drivers. :D

Cheers Guys!

I called Chris Knott last week and they gave me a really good price and couldn't have been more helpful. £500 all in (paid £900 last year to Elephant) but I was swayed by Greenlight who came in at £490 and include track day cover for only £50 per trackday. They had no issue over my mods either which is refreshing - Elephant threatened to cancel my policy.

I can't wait until the end of the month when the policy is due..... Donington here I come! :D

Damn!! Just renewed mine :(

Thanls for the post though Chris, i'll be contacting you next year :)

Still managed to get a relatively good deal on my new car after a bit of haggling.

Was interesting though as at renewal my premium had increased by 28% (despite not making any claims). I was told that this was due to the fact that last year they offered me a 15% discount for being a new customer and ordering online and the residual increase was due to market rate increases!!

£420 fully comp with 9+year protected NCB on 57 Leon 2.0T FSI FR DSG to beat next year Chris :lol:

I will certainly call you next year Tim if you can offer track day cover at a competitive rate/inclusive to the policy, that was the only reason i didn't choose to go with you as your premium was very competitive.

I think insurance companies need to be more aware of the needs of drivers. I gave elephant.co.uk an earful when they questioned why I wasn't renewing with them.

We get punished for petrol (and diesel), punished for having sporty cars, punished on VED tax and punished on insurance premiums as a consequence of those drivers who don't have insurance and ironically don't get punished....

Deep breath! :x
