In the process of getting renewal quotes myself... thanks to contributors here for one or two firms I wouldn't have thought of. I've grouped details together in the Useful Numbers thread of the members area for handy future reference. Feel free to add any others.

I rang around....Jim Mannion came in at €2,500
First Ireland quoted me €2140...but i told them that was €5 more than my current renewal quote from AXA,he came back with €2055 but on reviewing the quote on paper it clearly said bonus protection was NOT included but step back protection was.

Brian J Pierce is leading the field for me @ €1,920... Taxi Fair @ €2,100... Liberty out of the running @ way too much... First Ireland and Jim Mannion yet to weigh in. However, it varies for everybody so the best advice is to ring around.

Having a nightmare getting post from Liberty (my current insurer) at the moment. They sent my renewal documents on 21st December and last Tuesday and the cert/disc for my shitebox nua last Thursday but I haven't received any of it. Got on to them today and they emailed my NCD cert so I'll be able to renew elsewhere but they have no facility other than post for the other documents. Obviously, I can't book my LRA without the cert/disc so it's terribly inconvenient. Not getting any answer from An Post's DSU and the only way their post differs from everyone else's (which I am getting) is that they include the Eircode.

However, I won't pretend that I'm not pleased to be leaving Liberty. While the ladies on the phone are always pleasant and helpful I dealt with one absolute prick with a nordy accent last week (Michael, if memory serves) who insisted that I couldn't do a temporary transfer and that the firm "wouldn't let me own a car that isn't covered"... I done the temporary transfer a couple of days later with no problem other than being charged a fee (€36.75) which I believe is because my policy is within the renewal window.

Listening to some talking head on the telly this morning .He says a lot of UK registered insurers ,banks ,other financial services are opening offices in european cities to facilitate smooth transition to european regulations after brexit .then some waffle then he says he sees a SLIGHT increase in premiums to cover the extra costs that will be incured by these companies to continue business after Brexit .

Kinda hung up on my post issue at the moment, couldn't happen at a worse time and still no answer from the DSU. I've used their online contact form to send them a strongly worded message as follows:

My post seems to be going missing. I don't think I've received anything since Christmas and I'm aware of several letters posted from one source (Liberty Insurance) which have not been delivered including a letter posted on 21 Dec, a letter posted on 8 Jan and three letters (one urgently required) posted on 10 Jan. My address is [removed]. I have made several attempts to contact my local DSU by telephone (8020144) and received no answer.

Please advise ASAP.
