Car Insurance - 25plus.ie - €35 off

Hi all,

Got sent this voucher through my email from the above company after getting a quote a year ago.

Sine then I've gotten rid of my car so it's no use to me, but could be to someone else.

Just as a caveut, I've heard mixed reviews of this place, some good, more bad. But this may be useful to somebody, but worth going through the T&C's carefully!

VOUCHER CODE: LQ456

Happy insuring!

Only use them if your paying up front. The APR they charge on monthly DD payments is insane compared to other providers

These guys aren't as much of a bargain as they would seem.

I got my insurance with them last year and they were a nightmare from beginning to end.

Easily the worst customer service I have ever dealt with which involved me having to take two days off work ringing around to solve a never ending stream of queries they would pose one after another. Finally I got the account to the point where they covered me but had it locked so I couldn't view any documentation online. At this point I gave up dealing with them as I just couldn't bare to deal with them anymore. This was all due to not mentioning a windscreen claim two years previously. When I was speaking to my previous insurer on this they advised that it was ludicrous and they had never received a query like this before.
Oh and for every call expect a minimum of 30 minutes on hold listening to the Corrs as they point blank refuse to give direct numbers or emails in order to deal with things efficiently.

I've worked in a call centre myself so have an understanding of what it is like to have a rude obnoxious customer on the other end so always try to be as nice as possible when dealing with people but the staff were nothing short of rude and obnoxious themselves. I got to the point of dreading having to deal with them.

This year I will be happy to pay the additional premium so as to be able to have some comfort in my dealings and confidence that should heavens forbid something did happen where I really needed them such as a serious claim then I wouldn't be left high and dry.

Caveat Emptor applies heavily for anyone looking at this discount.

Didnt work for me initially but about 5 minutes after getting quote I got emailed a new quote with the €35 off!! Can get insured with them for €423 with zero excess,fully comp,windscreen cover,roadside assistance etc.Everyone else I've tried are quoting me around €700(some over €800!!) with €300 excess!! So its definitely a bargain alert for some.
I'm currently with its4women,got a great price from them last year but they looking for near €500 now.....strange considering they seem to be the same company. Thankfully,I've no complaints with its4women and they're underwritten by AIG which is assuring. So I'll prob go with 25plus this year. The insurance market is a complete scam so if I can get good cover for a good price,I'm happy with that.

I think there is an excess - you may have ticked the 0 voluntary excess button but all that means is that your excess isn't increased - Their excesses are 450 and 300 depending on which one you go to.

They also charge upwards of €20 per alteration done during the year - lost certificate - €20. Temporary change of car €20. Change address - €20 - Just remember that when going with them.

Yes, you're right. There's a compulsory excess of 300 but all quotes I have gotten have at least this or 450 even 600.
Do most insurance companies charge for those things? I put my brother on my policy when he's home from USA and anyone I've been with (AIG, RSA) have charged me minimum €20 a week to add him. If I'm saving at least €300 on my policy, like I am with 25plus, I don't mind having to pay for these things, if needed.

Just FYI to everyone, there is a Motor Insurance forum:

http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=1765

There is a thread with a list of insurers in Ireland, and also a thread with quotes people have gotten. I used the list of insurers to get a quote from every last one before buying my cover. It's the only way to go to get the best deal.

Adding a driver is an additional risk so will usually be charged for, doing a temporary transfer of insurance say if your car is in for a service is not and most companies won't charge for it.

Even with this voucher- I'd encourage anyone whose insurance is up to shop around. Mine is up in about 2 weeks time- and I've a renewal quote from Axa of pretty much double my insurance last year- which I'm certainly not going to run with. I'm 42, never been in an accident, no penalty points, full license for 25 years- and the best I can find is FBD- who are offering me a quote of over a hundred less than 25plus or its4women.ie (still significantly more than I paid last year- but at least its within the realms of possibility).

I also tried Blue insurance- who do a two year policy- however, based on my attempting to ring their call centre- I think its safest to give them a miss.

I'm going with FBD (I've never been a customer of them before- but they're Irish- and seem to be easy to deal with).

My renewal was mental with quote devil, until I called everyone else they were actually the cheapest, until by chance I tried bank of Ireland, which were close to what I paid last year.

English Company insurance in Ireland

Hi All ... can anyone in Ireland get Car Insurance from companies in England.
I recall some months age I was listening to the radio in my car and some adviser on Car Insurance stated that Irish Drivers can get car insurance in England.
Would anyone know the names of any Insurers they are ?

Thanks so kindly

They 100% definitely insure UK imports (they asked me about it). I'm not going with them- because they're too damn expensive. I'm paying my annual premium tomorrow morning- to FBD- who significantly undercut these folk- and appear to have customer support/care teams (from the wait while trying to ring this shower- god have mercy on anyone who has the bad luck to be involved in an accident........)
