Vehicle breakdown cover. by johnnyBgood! on 29 May 2012 3:23pm
 
I've been with the RAC for 21 years but decided that this years's renewal of £135.45 was too expensive, so I phoned them to cancel.
Within minutes and without any real haggling on my part, I was offered the next 12 months with the same conditions, for £39 !! As a 'goodwill gesture'.
Motor insurers are the same. The longer you stay with them, the more they think they can fleece you.

I've started 'haggling' over every purchase if it's with a large corporation. Of course being in a small town, I do the day to day stuff with local retailers and unless something seems out of line, they get the tag price.
