    Anyone expecting generosity from an insurance company is living in a dream world, their objective is to make money not give it away.

    I've 4 policies not including the farming side of it. I don't particularly want a voucher but it's the principal of it and if I get nothing next week I'm getting onto them. I've been a loyal customer since I was 17 years old and they can go fcuk themselves if they think for one second I'll let this slide.

    VHI increased their prices for next year and gave a discount for this year roughly the same as the increase. Paid a few week ago, about 5% reduction after discount.

    It is only on car insurance policies so that might be why you didn't get one.

    1.60 per month after 12 months. A lot of employers use them too as they are a tax efficient way of giving bonuses.

    Local Supervalu and I think Tesco take them so if nothing else you can use them with the weekly shop.

    The motor insurance companies saved a solid fortune on claims, sure next to nobody was driving. Traffic still well down.

    this was in normal times. Insurance companies have been having their way with honest people for a while now let alone the last few years
    Mandatory insurance should be regulated tightly and it isn't, much to @6600 chagrin

    Even when we get regulators, they do nothing

    I agree, maybe we should push for better. Enough emails make a difference

    FBD sent me a second one of these, so must be also giving them on commercial vehicles, but that makes very little sense to me as my commercial driving hasn't really changed, while I have hardy ever driven the private car.

    Got a €35 off them last week I think and dad got one yesterday so they must be sending them out to commercial policies now as the jeep is the only thing he still had with them

    I got 3 the other day. All in separate envelopes which seems a bit daft but herself is delighted. Inc hers there's 4 inside now.
