I have always been very happy with your service. Though I have never had to claim on my policy it has been a necessary (and reasonable cost) expense in my cars' life.

I can honestly say that this was the best experiences of buying car insurance I have had. No waiting on phone, friendly and helpful service, good value and prompt receipt of documents.��

The only downside, but it is significant, is that I renewed last year an agreed value on my classic but the paperwork was not updated to reflect this. My renewal notice actually stated market value only. This was corrected when I telephoned.

Very easy renewal process.

I would really like 'Homestart' included in the breakdown package as I have to pay Britannia Rescue all over again to get this service. I would off course be prepared to pay an additional amount to get this cover.
