    Keep pedalling
    I have my house and contents with them for the sole reason that I struggled to find another insurer that would cover my expensive bikes. Seperate bike insurance is horribly expensive.

    I did have my CF road bike stolen last year, and despite the fact that we had failed to lock the side gate when we went out, they sorted a replacement without any hassle and my premium only went up 20 after that claim.

    Far too expensive!
    Wasted 15 minutes of my life keying in all the information to find the quote was 2.5 times the amount I was being quoted in other price comparison sites for the same criteria. Won't be using it.

    avoid them like the plague
    this is a rip off company beware. they have lots of good reviews on trust pilot yet i could not link into trust pilot to give my review. plus i have a feeling it is employees who have given the reviews. two years ago this company were the best quote online so i went with them. firstly their phone staff are appalling with no telephone manner at all and just want you off the phone. also beware that they are a broker not an insurance co. when it came to renewal of my policy i declined their quote which had risen by 200 in a year despite my having no claim for the past ten years anyway and a year with them. However without my permission and despite my request not to renew they asked for the money from my bank as they claimed to have a mandate and because of my health at the time I had no energy to dispute it and left the matter. However I did again specify no automatic renewal. Just started to sort out quotes this year and again theirs has increased by another 100 so i rang and they said there would be no automatic renewal but I did not trust them so i phoned my bank and lo and behold they had requested payment and it was to leave my account at midnight. I cancelled this immediatley but it would have gone out if i had not intervened. I know you have 14 days to cancel but some people particularly the elderly might not be aware of this and forget to challenge within the 14 days and end up with two policies. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FREE BIES THEY OFFER AND IF YOU GO WITH THEM ENSURE YOU MAKE A NOTE TO CALL YOUR BANK BEFORE THE RENEWAL DATE TO CANCEL THE MANDATE. I WOULD NEVER TOUCH THEM AGAIN

    Poor. Quote was 2 1/2 times others, buggy website. I've also now had 4 calls from them in 3 hours, despite selecting "no phone contact". If MSE are going to blag deals for us, be nice if the companies concerned would abide by their own rules!

    Very expensive indeed.
    Looking to renew after being with LV.

    General prices following the MSE process come in at around 135. This company was more than twice that price, even after taking into account the gift voucher.

    Complete Waste of Time
    I completed the entire questionnaire 3 times and each time when I clicked to get the quote I received an error message telling me to try again.

    I wish that I had read the rest of the comments on this thread first

    Huge price quoted
    After answering a billion questions, the quote popped up for a few seconds then the page disappeared and I was taken back to the home page. However I glimpse the quote...over 300
    I usually get a policy for less than 100

    same as Deva Cesear - quoted below
    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.

    Having got quotes for buildings & contents insurance from Direct Line & Privilege for under 160, I entered the same details into the Insure4retirement quote except that I lowered the excess to 200. The price quoted for a year was 305.54!
    I don't think I will be bothering.

    Recently went through your link to these for a home insurance quote. Requested no calls but have been relentlessly pestered by them ever since - 3 times yesterday plus a voicemail (silent). The quote was far higher than others too. You asked for feedback on this company so hope this is useful to you.

    They STINK
    I have had to fight for the promised Amazon voucher for over 2 months now, each phone call they break another promise.
    What would they be like if I had to make a claim.

    Was good for me
    Although I did have to ring in at the end of the process, the result was that I was able to increase my cover and halve the price I was paying for my home and content insurance. I'm in Grade listed II building and the insurance is horrendous compared to regular houses - so it was a pleasant surprise to come across a company offering more reasonable rates.

    The contact centre person I dealt with was also very good and in a couple of categories was able to increase the insurance cover at no additional cost to me, so this one is worth ringing in for I think - but to get the Amazon voucher start off the process online - then it has the correct code in their system.

    Hi, MSE asking for our experiences regarding title heading. Applied for quote from Insure4Retirement and was very disappointed in their quotation given. 12.00 more a month for nothing extra. Last years quote from Budget went up by 50 a year and is still better than this new quote.

    I'm disappointed with them. I followed the link in the MSE article and there is an issue with their website so after filling in tons of very detailed information, I could go no further because one of the answer buttons was unresponsive. I called them - was told they have heard no other reports of problems with their website. I was offered only the opportunity of getting a phone quote. I raised that this would probably be more expensive than an online quote and he agreed it probably would be. I asked for an email to report the technical issue and he spent ages 'trying to find the email address' and then gave me a standard customer services email address.
    I have emailed them about the bug but after reading this thread I expect that even if the website is fixed and I'm able to get a quote, it won't be competitive.
    Really not impressed with them.

    Time Wasters
    I wish that I had read previous posts re Insure4retirement before being subjected to the laborious process of completing their online questionnaire only for it to 'bomb' at the very end.

    I repeated the process on various days using two different browsers only to finally ring the telephone number quoted in the error message given at the end of the abortive exercise.

    I spoke to a lady and explained what had happened and she put me on hold while she left to have a conversation with the website team (or so she said). After a few minutes she returned and , after apologising for the delay, advised me that I was the only person to have experienced this problem but that she could give me a quote over the telephone.

    I replied that I would only do this if, having decided to proceed with a policy, I would still qualify for the 60 Amazon Voucher ( I now learn that this had been 75 a while ago).

    As I anticipated the response was in the negative and the lady, whilst civil, tried to talk over me when I voiced (politely) my frustration. I was having none of this and in turn asserted myself and managed to finally give my observations about the online process.

    I was again told that I was the only person to experience any problems.

    For the record, I have subsequently repeated the process using two more browsers and (surprise, surprise) have encountered the same 'brick wall'.

    I have only now read the feedback from others which , in the main, indicate a very expensive organisation; reference is also made to the useless link given here.

    To anyone intending to use the aforementioned link I would say this: "DON'T BOTHER !"
