Insurance Madness

I got my home contents insurance policy renewal information in the post this evening. To say it was a shock was an understatement. Currently I pay about GBP12 per month, not the best price around but I like the extra cover I get. For the same cover I was offered a renewal at GBP95 per month. That's almost an 800 percent increase in price. It would surely have been less effort just to send me a letter to say that they did not want to insure me any more.

Anyway, one phonecall and ten minutes later I have a new insurance policy which costs GBP13 per month (with AXA you'll be happy to hear Matt!) and offers better cover than I had before.
