I renewed my car insurance on Friday. Like you nothing has changed, quote was £50 more than last year. I can't be bothered with all the comparing websites, rather scratch my face with sandpaper. I rang the Insurer and did what I do EVERY year which was moan about it, so they took £30 off. So it's still £20 more but it feels like a small victory. Yep, agree with you a complete pain in the backside.
