When I started looking for new cars (and before I agreed to purchase “The Silver Bullet”) I checked the relative premium costs with my insurance company (shameless plug coming) Direct Line. I knew there would be an additional premium to pay, and the quoted £200 was within the realms of my expectations.
Now when you buy a car from Ford, you can get seven days free drive away cover on the condition that you get a quote from Ford Insure. Imagine my delight when a Catherine Tate character (the girl from the fast food place) answered the phone! “Can I get a quote for yourself?” Well yeah, duh?
Anyway, what do you think the quote was…£2580. I informed Catherine that this was about £1780 more than Direct Line and she asked: “so would yourself be interested in paying the extra money to be with Ford”.
Altogether now: errrrr…nah!
