    When your renewal comes up I recommend buying your buildings and contents policies as separate items. It takes a bit more time searching all comparison sites but I have done this two years running saving £85 last year.

    This year's renewal quote was £279.00 with a new combined policy only £20 or so quid cheaper. Bought separately I got the lot for £91 without any loss of difference in cover.

    My friend did the same recently and saved over £200

    In December I bought home insurance from the AA through CompareTheMeerkat for £58. (My initial quote was £120.) The £58 policy was meant to give me £12 Quidco Cashback. However, after extensive attempts it was declined. Then I got an email from Littlewoods Catalogue saying I was entitled to a £20 online discount code as I was an AA customer. Again, after much time-wasting the code failed. So I in January I emailed Littlewoods to complain and to ask for a code that would work. I heard nothing until last week when I got an apology. Today I received a £30 cheque from them. This means I paid £28 for our insurance.

    Hi I had my home insurance form through from Churchill, I used your site to do a comparison & online Churchill offered a better package for £210 pa less. I called but they were unable to assist, so I called the online sign up free phone they not only beat the main renewal quote but also the online so I have a total saving of £259.51. Many thanks for your assistance. Regards David

    I had my Home Insurance renewal from Churchill back in September. The cheeky so-and-sos had raised it to £264 even though we've never made a claim in all the years with had Home Insurance.

    I used MSE to do a comparison and we ended up going with AA for combined Buildings and Contents Insurance (plus a few insurance extras as I often carry an expensive DSLR with me when we are out on our walks, etc). The cost of the AA cover - £103! Plus I earned a £38.38 cashback saving thanks to going via TopCashback.co.uk and a 50% off our next AA roadside breakdown renewal!

    So technically it's only cost me £65 (with the roadside breakdown saving still to come). What a lovely saving - thank you MSE!

    Just be careful if you claim under this policy. It's one of few in the market where you pay a excess per section, not per claim.

    For example, if you have a £100 voluntary excess, they have a £250 escape of water (EoW) excess, you'll pay £350 excess under buildings, and £350 under contents if you're claiming for both sections for EoW.

    Most policies nowadays will only charge an excess per claim.

    One up on Tesco
    Renewal quote from Tesco; £127. Confused.com Tesco, 117. LV on Comparethemarket.com; £109. Rang tesco; they dropped their quote because of slightly changed circumstances to £122 and gave me a £30 voucher for Tesco, where I do much of my shopping anyway. The whole process took about an hour: £15 an hour...double national minimum wage, so worth it for a pensioner. As I have been through your process twice before for home insurance, there wasnt the usual gnashing of teeth that usually accompanies form filling either.
    I only went to the first three comparison sites, as I still have a life to get on with...just.
    Thanks Mr Lewis.

    Hmm - i've tried your full comparison link for Buildings insurance, got quotes around £150-220 for the first 10 results.
    So, i then tried the direct options (Aviva and Direct line). No wonder they are giving away vouchers - the quotes came back for £372 - Direct line and £290 for Aviva.

    Not sure you should be promoting them to be honest? Quote was for 4 bed house, buildings only, 2 adults and 2 children. Nothing that out of the ordinary.
