Ryanair launch Car Insurance?

Just saw on breakingnews.ie that Ryanair have partnered with FBD to offer cheaper insurance. Looks like it's the same sort of 'No Frills' approach Ryanair take with the airline, but you can be sure it's going to be cheap!

There will probably be a clause that when making a claim there will be an administration fee more than the cost of the claim.....getting money BACK from Ryanair......try it!

Won't give me a full quote online but gave €223 for tpft (35yo on a 2.2l) which sounds alright. Then again, the price of our flights to Stanstead sounded alright too until they decided to cancel them and leave us to find our own hotel and transport at 11 at night.

Could Quinn's soon be the second worst insurance company in the land?

edit: Robbo beat me to it!

Yeah, I tried to get a quote there, just to see a price comparison with what I'm now paying. The part where you enter your occupation is hilarious-I'm an engineer and neither 'engineer' nor 'consultant' were there, but 'travelling roadside shop' was

Just got quoted about 130 over what I'm currently paying, and my current policy has a lot of the extras. Dealing with Ryanair is bad enough a couple of times a year as it is, they would have to be saving me a huge amount to tempt me.

Wow, just said the same thing here. Nothing to do with computers, but travelling roadside shop is there!

Unable to quote on a Integra Type R, not a bad quote for my Avensis though. Will check them out next renewal time..

I can Imagine Ryanair car insurance, You have to add extra premium for each passenger you have in the car and more for the luggage in the boot.

What if you decide to change cars? I was hit with a heavy surcharge from my last company because I needed a swap for a week.

Do they charge extra if you are carrying baggage in the boot!

LOL, their basic cover was cheaper than what I am paying at the moment but then tick all the boxes for the additional cover I have on my policy and it works out at over €230 more than I am paying now. And I'm with FBD.

Look, regardless of Ryanars no frills policy and their approach to all of their business's -

Its good to see another provider in the market. Competition is no bad thing.
