What a bunch of cowboys - First Direct Insurance

We got a very good quote for insurance renewal for both our cars from our current insurers. However I spotted this advertisement from First Direct

>>We can guarantee to beat your existing car insurance written renewal quote by at least 10%*

Thought that we might as well give them a try so my wife called them.

Cheeky f**kers refused to cover us because my wife is a "Technology Writer". She doesn't commute to work or drive to meet customers just sits at home on the phone in front of her Mac.

She challenged them as she had never been turned down for insurance in 20 years of driving. They denied that the refusal was due to not being able to beat the renewal quote and was all down to her profession.

So next year we are going to have to mention that we have been "refused insurance" when we renew. Great!

Thanks a bunch First Direct. After 20 years I think it's time to vote with my feet.
