Swift cover.com ...... just went on the moneysupermarket.com and they compared 50 insurers and these came out so cheap.

Tesco said £261
Swift.com said £132

Both fully comp, and same specs...... how come it is so cheap..... you know that too good to be true feeling :)

Anyone had dealings with them???

    I would go on the swiftcover.com website and run the same quote through just to make sure everythign has been covered. As far as I know they are quite a popular company who advertise on TV. The are internet only so they use that as a mode to pass savings onto customers.

    Also, try confused.com who also offer a comparison service.

    I think my biggest concern would be the fact that they are internet based so I assume there's no call centres for you to actually speak to someone if needs be - and we all know how emails can get ignored!

    There is a phone number if you need to claim. That was one of my thoughts too.

    I'd echo that. I've had a few quotes from moneysupermarket that have failed to materialize when I've followed them up on the insurer's website. Seems a great price if you can get it though.
    Can I help?

    Just recently had the renewal for the Wife's Micra, (Which we've now sold anyhow) from Churchill,and it was £180.

    Went on Quidco,ran the same quote through Lloyds TSB,and with the Quidco cashback,it came to £81!!!!!!! And unbelievably,the insurance was underwritten by..........yes,you've guessed it.Churchill!!!!!!!

    Even after selling the Micra,and buying a Peugeot 306,there was only a difference of about £10,again through Quidco.

    That's my mutt in the picture above.
