My renewal is coming up soon so I decided to get a quote from Prestige.

They did me a good quote, but when I asked them to email it over to me, the girl refused to send a quote with the price as it's against company policy!!!

Now I've owned a insurance brokerage in the past and if my memory serves me correctly if a person requests a full written quote a broker/insurance company has to provide it otherwise they are in breach of FSA/FCA regulations.

It all strikes me as a bit strange ( actually I know why they do it, it's to stop people using their quote to get a reduction but you have to play the game, rules are rules) and I for one wouldn't use them because of this.

Strange indeed. Feel free to get in touch with us for a comparison, we'd certainly have no problem confirming a quotation in writing.
