Insurance experience

Well i'm with GIO have been for about 4 Years; this time round i have had two claims on my previous Volvo S60r and my wifes car also.
If i was only driver the rate was $950 but with wife $1250 i also have choice of repairer,two year new car replacement and no claim bonus for life.
My business partner wrote off his Volvo on the F4 last year after trying to miss a previous accident, left in outside lane,raining and late at night. He was given a $80,000 cheque, his choice a week later by GIO

I have been with ALLSTATE, the "good hands people" for the last 20 years. I have 4 cars insured under them, plus a home and life insurance policy. The bundled deal, plus my excellent driving record has reduced my premiums tremendously

Progressive here...great experience with them. Rates are very good in my experience and customer service is top notch too.



Edit:
Ooops, my bad this IS the Austrailia section, as someone below pointed out.

Hi Scheps, I got an E90 323 M Sport with a few extras like sunroof and sat nav etc i'm 28 with BMW Insurance.. As far as I could tell from my investigations they are the only insurance company that would guarantee genunine BMW parts and offer a 2 year new car if mine gets written off.. I think it cost me around $120 a month. Hope it helps.

Sorry 'bout that. I got here through "New Posts." I should have looked at the "Forum" column or the location of the OP before I posted a reply. I'm a noob on the forums. Just insured my 335i yesterday so it was of particular interest to see what was being said about insurance.
