    How I Saved Money on my Car Insurance
    Hi everyone!

    My name is Celine and this is my first post on a MSE forum so please bare with me

    So a few weeks ago I came across a post on my facebook from a company called Simply Car Insurance (SCI) about saving at least 10% on my car insurance . I have only been driving for two years now and my renewal was coming up so I thought I would click on the link and get a quote. Even if it didn't come up cheaper, it was still worth the try I thought. It's always good to look around for the best deal anyway.

    When I reached the site it asked me to get a quote on a comparison website, so I did on compare the market, and my cheapest quote was £750 with a blackbox with Admiral, so only about £80 cheaper compared to what I paid last year.
    I went back to the SCI website to get my quote. They asked me if I had a referral code so I entered the one I saw on Facebook which was 9462. So once I put in all the information to get the quote, the site basically said that I would get an email come through in about 5 or 10 minutes with a quote.
    I got the email quiet quick and they had actually saved me just over £60!

    Okay, so when you're looking at an amount like £750, a £60 saving might not be considered an awful lot depending on your circumstances, and its only about 8.5% rather than 10% (I didn't do the math so sorry if thats wrong), but I would definitely rather pay the £687 they quoted me than £750.
    The best thing for me was that I wouldn't have to have a black box so now I feel more free!

    I would definitely recommend at least getting a quote, especially if you are a relatively new driver or if you have just passed your test. Even if they can't beat your quote from the comparison website, its still definitely worth a look.

    Again, the referral code was 9462 (which I recommend using as they might give you a better quote for using a referral code).
    Unfortunately because I am a new user, I cannot post the website :embarrassed: but you can still find it by typing scionline, and it is a website, so dont forget that either aha!
    Once I am allowed, I will see if I can edit this post to include the actual link to save you effort

    Post a reply if they save you money as well as I would actually really like to hear how much other people as saves as well by going with simply car insurance

    Possible Car Write-Off. Help Needed Please
    I recently had a shunt when turning out of a side turning and due to the age(16yrs) and damage my insurance company say it's a write-off and will now affect my 10yrs no claims as it's my fault.

    I have a fully comp policy which adds no benefit in this case.

    If I decide not to claim I will still have to insure the safely repaired car with another company.

    How will this affect my next policy as they always have contact with your previous insurer ?

    Anyone else tried this MSE link?

    For us, it was three times several lowest quotes from any other comparison site.
