Got a call day before yesterday from guy from the UK who was visiting his Dad in SA.
Dad is retired, lives in a VERY secure complex in Blue Hills, and drives a 1997 BMW and 1999 Nissan Hardbody 2.0.
Son thought his dad was "paying a bit much". Monthly premium was R2,209.15 for cars, house buildings and contents.
I got 11 alternative quotes.
The most costly was R1,431.77.
The cheapest R1,044.78.
Both with wider - MUCH wider - covers than already in place.
Tell me again that Direct Insurers are cheaper .... ???
