  1. That’s such a detailed trip log. Were most of the places visited a first time visit and which did you love the most and why?
  2. And by the time you are 4 years with Saga it is ridiculous!! Something I did tell them when I cancelled!!!
  3. Look back on posts on here as I opened a topic on this and there were many replies and recommendations. I was with Saga up renewal came in at £592! Changed to LV for £392. Worth a look at posts.
  4. Iansoady, absolutely agree that a tablecloth is essential along with glass wine glasses!!!
  5. I’ve just noticed a little cup and 1 on the bottom of my post. What does this represent?
  6. When our children were small we invested in an oval Lafuma table which had adjustable legs. It folded in half like an arc and had hand grips for carrying. We needed an oval as three children make square tables too squashed! We must have used it every outing and we are including an annual 6 week summer holiday to France and it is in the same condition 15 years later. We’ve now given it to one of our sons as we don’t need one this size. Can recommend Lafuma, not cheap but excellent quality. https://www.lafuma-furniture.co.uk/camping-table-hawai-laminated-carbon.html
  7. Ian how interesting! I didn’t realise VW did their own car insurance. Does your quote include European cover?
  8. What a positive statement for loyal customers too.
  9. Yes I saw the 180 days as opposed to Saga which is unlimited, but decided we wouldn’t be doing 180 days with a car in Europe, so this was the better deal for us. You really do have to study each policy and the differences, I just wish they would all stick to a standard format for these though!
  10. I was originally with Saga, maybe 4 years ago and a competitive premium but eventually this has increased and last quote was £593, legal cover, European cover and fully comp, over 20 years NCD, car 2 years old. So unsure how some posts on here are so much cheaper unless of course this is a first time or second time with Saga. I’ve now moved to LV.
  11. After lots of browsing over policy documents and a phone call to Saga, who said they could give me a discount which turned out to be £30, I decided to leave Saga. Managed to get very similar cover with LV (thanks Woodentop for recommendation) but at over £200 less. Maybe because I’m a first customer rather than a loyal customer, and in four years time or so I’ll be repeating the same process but in reverse!!!!
  12. I just looked at Flexplus account and insurance but noted it says a trip up to 31 days or you pay extra for longer. We go for far longer than 31 days in summer, so has anyone had an extension on their trip?
  13. Can she not add a European cover to her existing insurance if she speaks with them. I’m sure we did this one year.
  14. Wow! Thank you all for your comments, advice and recommendations. LV’s quote does seem to cover all I have with Saga at the moment at a greatly reduced premium. I certainly won’t be staying with Saga with over £250 difference in the premium. I also have house insurance with Saga due in June so thanks for the tip about this Woodentop. It is sad that Saga who cater for over 50s insurance do not actually live up to the reputation they like to have with their premiums being ridiculous once you have been with them from their initial competitive first quote.
  15. Postcode never thrown up anything previously. I think I’ll take Commander Dave’s approach and say I will leave them! Just got quote from LV - £347 - it’s the £100 European cover that bumps it up but we need this. Even so, still a heck of a lot cheaper than Saga and with same additions.
