Seems like it may not just be car insurance. Just had an E mail from my home  insurers  LV ( no- I dont own the company   ;D )     I though it was the renewal  . It  explained why insurance  costs are going up so much - more claims, higher building costs, bad weather, Blah Blah  .     But no. They will be  sending the renewal quote in a few days  .. This was just priming me to expect the worst  :o  Presumably they hope  I will be less shocked and less likely to rush to find a cheaper quote.   I'm hoping they have  also played the double  mind game of it not being as bad I was expecting.

I renewed my house insurance via a broker friend a month ago

He used Ageas and it was very similar to last year

Can't remember the exact figure but is in the low £200's

Hope you donít have any issues as Ageas are an absolute nightmare to deal with.

I have found them to be excellent. I had a repair done under their insurance and 3 years later rust broke through. They arranged for the car to be taken to a different repairers, who replaced the door, resprayed the FNS wing and fixed some damage that the original repairer missed.

Excellent service

Just had the renewal from LV  . It went up 27% from last year .   The 'warning'  e mail was a bit deceptive in that it quoted an increase in claims of 50% and the cost of the payouts they made of 70 %  . As they no doubt intended I paid more attention to the high percentage, and less to the fact the increase was spread over an indeterminate number of "recent years" 

So a bit relieved,but also a bit peeved at their tactics.  Not peeved enough to no longer do business with them, or relieved enough not to check for other quotes.

My broker handles all that on my behalf. He's had no issues in the past which is why he uses them

If he does have any issues at claim time he drops the company off his database
