I  had a cheap Nissan Micra as a second car. This car was used to get my son through his driving test and subsequently was used by him to travel to work.

The long and short of it was, that the little run around, became terminally ill, and my son decided to buy another car and decided to insure it in his own name, He needed to build up a  no claims bonus.

All well and good you might say.


I rang the insurance company that purported to to be customer friendly and asked to cancel the insurance. Of course I could, said the semi trained English language graduate(Reading from a script). However I would have to pay a cancellation fee of £50.

I’ve also got to send back the insurance certificate. As far as I’m concerned the £50 entitles me to that piece of paper.

Still being a law abiding member of the public , I shall send it back to them.

1. Large Jiffy bag

2. Certificate will be shredded in the name of security

3. Just in case terrorists might try to intercept and use it, the jiffy bag will be filled with 2 kg of lead sheet that I have surplus to requirements.

4. Oh dear. I forgot to pay for the postage.


Zurich Insurance. Don’t even think about trying to sell me any insurance , ever.


  1. Lead? oh why waste perfectly good lead FE? fill it with half a pound or so of dog crap instead. Use a ziploc freezer bag.

  2. I got a great deal using and the post office who i did not know did car insurance.

  3. I decided to keep the old car in my name until mine was finished uni and working. Took him a few years to build up no claims but much cheaper as once he reached 25 the cost dropped.

    Had a dispute with Direct Line about my winter tyres. Friends were told that unless they are informed of there use the policy is void. (They have renewed elsewhere now). I rang and was told that was nonsense but would I ring back and tell them once I've put on my winter tyres. I said no, I will email you in order to have written proof of notification. 'You can't do that' was the reply.

    I can renew elsewhere and cheaper though.

  4. Zurich and the term bastards in the same's like ground-hog-day...

  5. Marvellous, I've used that 'heavy' package trick too. Hope it was a 'large letter' size as well - even more expensive

  6. TBF.

    Oh yes. The letter will only just fit in the letterbox.

  7. Wonderful goods frоm you, man. I have unԁerstanԁ уοur ѕtuff previous to anԁ you arе just extгеmely grеat.

    Ι really like what you've acquired here, certainly like what you'гe ѕaying and the way in ωhich
    yоu say іt. Yоu mаkе it enјοyable and you still сare for tο
    keеp it sensible. I cаnt wait to rеad much mοre frοm уou.
