after a morning messing with insurance companies eg direct line and there policy of not sending cover notes out - very helpful

fiat dealer has the 7 day free insurance with Avivia saved the day - so collecting the car at 12.30pm all good

watch out around nuneaton for the latest white with red decals flying down the A444

catch ya all soon

    We took the free 7 day insurance from our dealer. Aviva also turned out to be the cheapest quote we got, so we changed our insurance to them too.  Saved £120 on the Direct Line quote! ::)

    I wonder if there's some kind of kick back from the dealers from the Aviva thing? I was a bit irritated that no-one from the dealership made it clear to me that I would need proof of insurance to pick up the car so I ended up faffing about getting things faxed through during the post strike. I hadn't really thought that I would need proof because I hadn't got finance but didn't think about getting it taxed.

    I'm so old there aint a lot of room for me to get cheaper insurance than Priviledge and I trust them not to give me grief if I have an accident and to actually cover me properly.

    not sure on the kick back but my current insurance Direct Line would not provide a fax copy for cover for me just a letter saying i was insured which wasnt good enough

    so like i said im glad they helped me out aviva saved the day and ive nearly done 100 miles lol
