I use Ibex!! Mainly cos my friend is their local agent. I did look around and found a cheaper quote last time and when I told Ibex, they matched it!! I have to say, luckily (touch wood etc) I havent had to use them, so I dont know what they're service is like

Linea Directa. They gave us the lowest quote for our Disco but got in a muddle with the intial paperwork.
We'll use them when we renew as they promise further discounts.

Mapfre, cos there's an office nearby and they offer on the door step assistance. Don't know how the money works out though, it's Not My Department...

I now use Linea Directa (although they are not the cheapest) as they offer the best medical cover going, plus OH's experience of them in the past was second to none (although I must admit their admin dept is a bit of a shambles).

We used to have Liberty Seguors for both cars, but when it came to a claim: (A serious matter as we were injured, had been run off the road by a boy racer who then left his car and the scene, the Traffico 'Atestados' attended and it became a criminal case) they were more than C***

They would not deal with us initially and kept telling us to go to the broker (who was as bad as Liberty themselves) -
The Insurance Centre in Coin
From the start of the claim to three years later and only just managing to get medical bills refunded, having to elect our own lawyer (as theirs was giving us insufficient info)
and to the point that Liberty hired their own medical specilaist (I thought at the time to confirm my injuries, but no, to refute my claim!!!)


At the end of my tether I report them to the Insurances Ombudsman - who sadly, took their word at face value and said they had 'acted within the Insurances code'. (But if I was unhappy then I could start a civil case against them).

Some code when you have lost out financially through unprofessional handling and less than service.
No accountablility!

We insured our LandRover third party only last year and kept our fingers crossed as it's not old. Linea Directa have now given us fully comprehensive cover for the same price - with some qualifications, of course, but nothing too complicated to hinder a straightforward claim.

why do you need fully comp? it's a Land Rover. Anything short of a head on collision with a T52 tank,with not noticably damage it?
