Re: Check out O2 Drive

I have taken a look and to renew my policy it's £127.00 more than I'm paying at the moment. Having said that I quite expect my insurers will have increased the premium when I get the renewal quote.

However, O2 Insure s almost £290.00 more than the cheapest quote I've seen....

Re: Check out O2 Drive

I think I'd prefer that O2 invest in improving their mobile network rather than spread themselves into an industry that's already over subscribed.

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2

Its likely there will be a 3rd party behind this. But when I think of car insurance, i dont think of O2 Rolleys

Re: Check out O2 Drive

As I thought, its expensive compared to what I pay with Direct Line. About £140 more (at this point in time) and I'm not convinced its as good a policy as my current one with the added benefits. Will need to check the details but its quite a difference and I'm not expecting a major hike at renewal. 

 

FYI: even going from a zero excess to £500 only reduces it by £20! I think I'll be passing this one by several miles.

 

On the plus sides, the garage assistant is a nice idea but to be honest, if the perks are like Priority then its useless for me as most times, the offers are in places so far away its not justified.

Re: Check out O2 Drive

In a nutshell..... it is far too expensive...Certainly no comparison with the top 5 quotes I found...

Re: Check out O2 Drive

Just thought I'd give this a go and get a quote, what a joke!!!! Double what I'm paying already and an O2 quote didn't show on copare the market when i got my policy a couple of months ago.

 

I have a funny feeling this will fail.
