All in a day’s work…and the rest
Actually in all it was more than one day, but an accumulation of hours. I was trying to renew my car insurance., What a palaver. I was of course sent a quote by my current one for an automatic renewal., and as I usually do I went on line to do some comparison hoping to cut it down.
After a couple of hours here and there I sorted one out £30 cheaper and went ahead, by the time I’d filled in and corrected all the boxes then read the T&C’s I timed out, twice. I managed to get past that and spent a good part of this afternoon finalising it, I decided to phone and give card details rather than online, and was told it would be more expensive…….OK I went back to paid online. then printed off the Policy. I got an email, Thank you for your custom da,da,daa, BUT could you please forward by email attachment a current No claims discount from present insurer. also your current driving license back and front, Oh oh I mislaid my driving license way back sometime last year, and as it would cost £20 to have a re-issue I was advised by the DVLA to leave it till my birthday when it will be renewed automatically. The ins co, wouldn’t accept the paper copy. In the meantime I received an email from my current insurer asking why i didn’t want to renew, I said I’d got a cheaper quote….Let’s see what we can do for you, she said, of course she came back with a lower price after asking me what I’d been offered. I don’t have to supply my license or NCD as they have them. done. The irony is that it is the same firm that I’d got the other quote from but it was through a broker.
The afternoon is all but done and I’ve done nothing worthwhile, I don’t feel like going out again with Ruby as it’s -2 deg and still got a covering of snow with flurries, I’ve cancelled my dancing, WHERE IS SUMMER??
