My car insurance went down a similar amount. Not sure it’s just an AIG thing.

But my house insurance was cheaper with AIG

I can only presume AIG are on a bit of a sales drive at the Mo as I had filled in a number of other online quote forms which are far tooooooo long. Lads if you want people to shop around you should have cut down version of the form of the important stuff so people can get a feel and if they bite get down to the detail when you do a follow up. AA/ Liberty/ Friends first were all more or less the same as existing FBD quote or higher, think Liberty were about €130 more than everyone else. I could get the AIG quote lower again by about €35 if I pushed the excess amount up to the max (€750) but chose €300 I think.


Had something similar a couple of years ago I think with via Tesco and home insurance where they were €150 cheaper than everyone else and I think the company that underwrote it for Tesco I had already tried and found more expensive than my existing.

car insurance has so many variables that one company will be cheap for one person but more expensive for the next, shop around for a day or two and you will save money, discount codes are always good but have been factored into the pricing already.
i found my cheapest quote and then phoned for a further discount by asking them to match a made up quote.

AIG prices for my home insurance and car insurance this year was the best I could find, so switched over to them, happy out with the savings

I have no loyalty to any company in the insurance market and switch my business each year, better in my pocket than theirs.

People think its a pain to keep switching, I find it relatively easy.

I've been with AIG for last 2 years with Car Insurance, and moved House Insurance to them last year was well. Found them the cheapest for both. My car Insurance came down to €425 from €440 with them last year, and couldn't find cheaper, for the same level of cover.

I always shop around when Car & House insurances come up for renewal, and found AIG to be cheapest over last couple of years for me. But will always move in a heartbeat if they increase. Shop around people. I always put a reminder in my phone for one moth prior to renewal so I get looking ahead of it to get a sense of prices before the renewal price comes in.

554 quoted which is about 15% dearer than my current provider quoted for renewal.
I priced quotes every year and in the last five year without fail, Liberty and AIG have been the dearest every single time. Liberty I don't know what people are doing to get the low quotes, cause whether it's a new car or old car, the quote is always the highest.

10+ years licence, 10+ years no claims.........makes no difference to Liberty.

My renewal from the broker I used last year (insurance would have been with Allianz) was €580.


I rang Quote Devil having heard an ad on the radio just before I sat down to do my annual ring-around-every-company-I-can-possibly-think-of (never used them before) got the same comp cover with Allianz for €360. They also undercut my house insurance renewal quote - not by as much, but still a saving.


I did wonder was it due to current circumstances, or just the old broker chancing their arm bigstyle with a huge renewal quote.



The difference was so huge that I didn't try trading them off against each oher, just gave QD the business!
