    Yep! What gets me is how you get different quotes but with the same underwriter. Shows how much profit some brokers make.

    Aviva offered me renewal at £500+ and assured me it was their best offer. Went on line and got same cover with Aviva for less than £200. Most years I relied on automatic renewal, never again.

    Sorted - a smidge under £500 fully comp. Full no claims (14 years although they only count 9), clean licence, 47 year old in London.

    I'm about as low risk as your can get but that's the best I could get. Daylight robbery!
