Sons insurance..

so quotes before the existing insurer quoted ranged from £1700 to£1900

the existing broker quoted £1900 (£1800 last year).........Insure taxi/Aviva

so after much haggling....£1610 (waiting on additional cost of protected NCB)

why cant they just state the lowest price instead of this stupid turkey dance every year

Because a significant % of people don't undertake the turkey dance, they just hand over their bank details.
