I went through the process of requesting a quote for car insurance through insure.ie. The quotes were average. Then this arrived a week later.
Who are they trying to kid? They may just as well have said "ONLY JOKING!! Give us a ring and we will give you a better quote." It is no wonder that car insurance is such a irritant to many people.
and I got a telling off by a number of people on this site because I got annoyed by the way Insurance companies do business in this country- i rest my case!
Just insured the homestead with Chrome for a second year. Found them easy to deal with, very reasonable quote (€259 for a four bed detached). I usually have a good look every year for the best deal...didn't have to this year, very happyDoes anybody have any current recommendations for insurance companies / brokers with competitive rates for house & contents insurance in 2016?
Impossible to say in the general case as situations/requirements vary so much.Does anybody have any current recommendations for insurance companies / brokers with competitive rates for house & contents insurance in 2016?
Thanks for the suggestion! I contacted Chrome who were highly competitive and very fast and efficient with dealing with my questions. Its my first time buying home insurance so I had a good shop around as ClubMan suggested to get the idea of the different policy details and levels of cover. Aviva also seemed very competitive for the basic levels of cover.
