Just took mine away from them yesterday. The attitude is NOT what it was. I was insured with them for 7 years and they didn't even wave goodbye!
Reason: started a new policy and my son made a mistake on the projected mileage when giving them information. I went through the info and saw the premium was through the roof. I asked them to correct a couple of days into the policy and they said "too bad, no, that's what you said" even though the projection would have been impossible to achieve for a working man and was way out of line with previous usage. Apply logic and common sense? Not on their watch! Not much of a "Comfort". This is not the first time they have "annoyed the hell out of me". So cancelled under the 14-day clause.
I also tried Camping and Caravanning Club and after an hour on the phone, 20 mins of which was spent listening to their 16-bar on-hold jingle, they declined to cover. Why? Because he doesn't have another car + insurance in his name. It's in his company name, his car, his company.
Final solution AIB brokers who were excellent, offered me a 10% discount for "sign up today" which we did. Good (and appropriate) terms, 180 days Europe cover. More than I paid last year, but I think worth the extra!
