I have been with AA car insurance for the last 3 years. This year I decided to check out a few other providers. I got it 400 euro cheaper with itsforwomen.ie. 2 of us (males) insured for 480 euro.

Yeah. If you go onto www.onebigswitch.ie there is a car insurance offer on it from itsforwomen.ie and it specifies that "This exclusive offer is for all One Big Switch members, you do not need be a woman to avail of this offer".

Lol, AIG's quote for me including this "discount" is about €400 more expensive than the others. Pulling random numbers from the air it seems.

I had insurance with Its4Women a few years ago, and had to cancel it - their small print regarding driving other cars was very hooky, and screamed "get-out-clause" to me, and they refused point-blank to clarify it.


They were also a bit of a nightmare to deal with when you actually needed to talk to a human, took a lot of effort and time.


So regardless of saving, I've avoided them and similar since (25+ is the same crowd, and I think they have other variations on the theme).

AIG aren't issuing any refunds to current policy holders so I would assume they can reduce their quotes as a result

I got a very decent quote from Zurich recently much cheaper than final offer from FBD.

I recently renewed with Aviva after using them last year as well. They were by far the cheapest.

I still rang them asking if they could do any better and they knocked 30 odd quid off. Told them Id think about it, that Id look around first for alternatives. They applied the 30 euro discount to my online account and left it there as the new quote in case I wanted to renew which I did in the end.

I renewed with AIG at the start of this month, the quote was €100 cheaper than my current insurance renewal quote which was with Zurich.

I used to stick around with insurance companies if there's not much difference in quote. Now I can switch even for €20-30. Really doesn't take any effort. Only needed to upload my no claim bonus cert + license and pay online.

Just got my renewal quote from Quote Devil, despite no refund issued for this year as some insurance companies are doing, my quote is slightly higher this year than last. I'll be having a few words before renewal date.

They increased my home and car by €300 so they aren't even doing that much. Probably no point even calling them as they will just offer the usual €50 off or whatever, time to go shopping around.

Yes
It’s for women and 25plus are the same company and I often flip between the two
