Haggling For Insurance
The British are not known for their haggling - perhaps once a year at a foreign market when trying to get a discount on a tshirt, but rarely do we haggle in Britain. Yet the rules of haggling apply as much to a building quote as they do to getting the best deal for your insurance. It's been reported that between 70% and 90% of customers managed to haggle down the cost of their insurance premiums.
Get three or four of the best prices on an insurance price comparison site first, then give the companies a call. Stay polite but let them know in no uncertain terms that you'll be off to Company B if they don't give you a great price, and you can always ask for freebies such as breakdown or legal cover.
