Quick review of Provident Insurance PLC

"In regards to Doreen Stokes review - if there is a problem with your cover - it is down to your broker as all info about you is sent other the internet from your broker to the computers at provident automaticaly so take it up with the AA - and what did you expect - that provident would insure your duaghter as an extra for free - i think not - what world are you living in - nothing in this world is free
