Alternative to M&S House insurance
Greenbee is very similar cover, some people find it cheaper but most quotes come in much more expensive.
A few have asked this exact question over the last few months, myself included. I think most stay with M&S in the end, although obviously, let your cover lapse and take out a new policy via the website to get the online discount 🙂Posted 8 years ago
I went to ING and saved loads. Cover seems equivelent
Not as good as M&S…pedal cycles are an extra cost option and even then are limited to a value of £250. With M&S pedal cycles are included, don't need to be declared and covered to £4k each. Up til now, I hadn't found anyone apart from M&S/Greenbee who would insure a bike locked in a car unless it was hidden below a parcel shelf.
Edit: ING's policy document contradicts what is stated on the website, small print says bike is covered to £1000 each, max £2500 per claim, which is better. Also surprisingly, locked to an immovable object includes a vehicle, so locking a bike to a welded seatbelt mount or similar in the car presumably counts.Posted 8 years agoDangerboyMember
Just doing the same thing.
Was with M&S for building and contents cover last year, had my renewal quote of £550 through the post this morning.
Went to the M&S website and put in the exact same details and am currently being quoted £270 as a new customer.
And if the quidco cashback tracks it'll be £240 all in.
Just double checking everything now…Posted 8 years agoMatt-PMember
Similar situation a couple of weeks ago, managed to save £200 and stay with M&S after a bizarre phone call where they wouldn't drop the renewal quote, but were quite happy to let me cancel the original policy and then take out a new one at the internet price. Bizarre.Posted 8 years ago
