    Got a home insurance quote there, but came out nearly double the price of my last policy!

    Hi Martin , used your link to Insure4Retirement and keyed a like for like Buildings and Contents quote and for me was £85 cheaper than my existing L&G policy! This was even disclosing a water causeway (Brook) which runs close to my property which my current insurer had never previously asked about. And using your link should bag me a further £75 Amazon Gift card within 90 days. (I have printed your link to info just in case I have to chase this up though) So, success. Hooray!

    Not a good experience ....

    - filled out form, promised 2 mins, but took around 10 mins
    - bombs out and then says give them a call (why would I do that! I'm completing a web form)

    I'll stick with what I have, ta, but no ta.

    The link didn't work for me so I went direct to the web site and filled out a quote which came back almost double my current policy. And I am over 50 too Don't think I will be using this company as even with the £75 Amazon gift voucher it still works out more.

    clicked on MSE link and attempted to fill in quotation request for home insurance. Two thirds of way through form it had a bug and I couldn't complete. Went to their own web page and same bug. Phoned them to inform them of bug, they offered to do quote over phone (I declined). Then told me to avoid the question with the bug to be able to complete quotation. I did this and they were very expensive and will not be following up. The next day they phoned my mobile, but as I don't answer unknown calls (it was from 08450451530) I ignored. Went on to "whocalls me" web page and they appear to have a history of "harrassing" people so I wait to see if they continue to phone me.

    Seems good but...
    Only good value with the £75 gift card incentive. £30 more expensive than cheapest quote on gocompare but much cheaper with the gift card, giving me home and contents for 20 quid. I don't think they'll be competitive next year. No problems with quote or website, nice and easy money saving exercise assuming that I get the gift card of course.

    I've just this minute come off the phone having taken out a combined buildings and contents policy and they couldn't have been more helpful.
    I initially clicked the MSE link and filled out the online form which resulted in the quote being over £250 dearer than what we're currently paying. I was then called about two minutes later by the insurance co who informed me that as I'd not put a gap in my postcode or filled out the employment box properly - they didn't have relevant option - then a lot of under writers are missed out in the search. The lady pointed out that they're currently having changes made to the online form and very kindly went through all policy options and made relevant changes which then resulted in us now paying £20 less than our current policy. Plus, we get the £75 Amazon gift card which incidentally comes as an E voucher apparently, in 90 days time hopefully!
    All in all very pleased with the service so far. Oh, also worth opting for £0 voluntary excess as that only increased our policy by £12 as opposed to having to an extra £100 on top of the compulsory £150 should we make a claim.

    Initial quote was around £260 then read that need to put a gap in postcode so a requote of £199 (ridiculous that the software does not account for this). this is still twice the price of the well-known companies on the comparison sites even so not worth it for my daughters flat even with the Amazon voucher

    Got Home insurance cover with them on Sataurday as price was same ballpark as last years insurer.

    However read the policy same night and realised that i had insured the rebuild for £227 not 227K!!!

    When i rang to change this it doubled the price so I had to cancel.

    Their website needs a 'are you sure?' prompt on this field as £227 only gets you about 500 bricks!

    Doesn't want to know me. I presume because I am 85m from a stream with a dribble of water in it, 3m below the house. Zero flood risk according to the Environment Agency. Not impressed. Plenty more fish in the stream.

    Insurance Quote

    Visited Insure4Retirement the process was pretty much the same as other online insurance sites.
    I was surprised the quote was more than £100 more than my current insurer. This was before any policy additions were added like Legal £25, Home Emergency £66, Keycare £15.50.
    I cannot recommend this site even though a voucher for Amazon/Debenhams £75 was on offer...

    Wasted 30 mins trying to get a quote as there is a problem with their website.
    Eventually gave up and telephoned where the price is mega expensive compared with usual quotes
