The renewal notice arrived for my insurance group 11 car and much to my horror saw that the premium had increased by over £100 with Norwich Union Direct which I had previously found to be extremely cheap. I referred to the Which report which recommended various companies one of which was Barclays direct. Two of the companies refused to deal with the car because it does not have a Thatcham approved alarm, although it does have a 1993 factory fitted Mercedes alarm which functions well. Barclays was able to undercut the renewal premium and include fully comprehensive RAC cover and cover for all windows for the same price. The agent was helpful and enthusiastic without being too pushy. Consequently the car is now insured with Barclays which slightly upsets me since my opinion of the bank is pretty low. I would certainly recommend Barclays especially for people without the Thatcham approved alarm system fitted on their cars.
