Footman James called me 3 times to remind me of my renewal well before the time elapsed.
furthermore when I called them your staff were very helpful and renewed my classic car insurance very carefully answering my questions.

We I checked my renewal sent by e-mail as i was away on business and returned to Footman James I was able to talk to the person I spoke to before, which make it very easy,

Finally when you ring Footman James the Voice telling which option to use was very assuring and short.

Kind regards

I am generally a loyal customer as long as premium is competitive. Initial renewal premium was as last year higher than I had been quoted elsewhere. Immediately dropped on a phone call, but not as much as last year and qualified by we are giving up some of our commission to do this, but we now have a £10 fee that we no longer discount. Rang a few days later and same message, but when I asked if there was anything in premium that could be removed found i was paying for some cover i did not need like European travel and road rage. Saved £30, but appreciate I should read the terms closer.

Having completed an online quotation form which took about 15 minutes I was asked to phone an 0845 number to speak to an advisor. I did this and having accessed my details via the reference number I was asked to confirm the exact details of my intended cover and had a quote after another 20 minutes. This proved to be a third of the cost of any 'comparison' quote and less than half of any direct call quote I had made, including a very low excess and breakdown recovery. Well worth the cost of the call and the extra effort, I went ahead. Happy days!
