I’ve been with Admiral for quite a few years now and currently have 3 cars insured with them, my MX5 and my partners car on one multicar policy, and another policy with my daily car.
The multicar policy was up for renewal this month. Usually when my renewal is due, I’ll check on the usual comparison sites and the cheapest quote I get will typically be from Admiral or one of the Admiral owned companies, and it’s usually cheaper than the renewal quote.
This year, when I checked on confused.com (which is owned by Admiral), it didn’t give me a quote from Admiral, and the cheapest quote was from some other company at £300. But, I found that if I change one letter in my surname when getting a quote then I did get a quote from Admiral and it was £160!! That’s £140 cheaper than the previous cheapest quote and £100 cheaper than my renewal quote! Turns out, if your renewal is due with Admiral, the comparison sites know this and won’t give you a quote so that you’re forced to pay the renewal price. Thankfully, I spoke to Admiral on the online chat, told them what happened and they honoured the £160 quote, and gave me a cheaper quote for the second car on that policy too!
TL:DR Try changing a few letters in your surname when getting a quote on the comparison sites and you may get a cheaper price!
