Good only as I've submitted the change of my vehicle address for several years and its still not right. Also your pay on line has never worked. So perhaps I will listen to Sterling Moss !!

So far so good. The usual proof comes if a claim has to be made but normal service for renewal was good and easy to renew online

Your interaction with Towergate meant that I had to make 4 phone calls back and forth, probably due to staff not understanding who was doing what on new policies for someone with an existing policy. It was sorted in the end but a frustrating exercise. There are also mistakes in my new policy down to the young lady who was helping me (in training during the call) not listening. Hopefully you will settle these things down between Towergate and FJ.
