Why am I not surprised that it's Admiral, one of the worst car insurers I've ever had the misfortune to deal with.



The same company that wanted to force people to give them access to their social media to help determine their premiums.

Thankfully, facebook put a stop to it. But if they hadn't I'm certain it would have become a common practice.


Compared to some of the antics we had with Direct Line, Admiral have been really good - not had any serious problems and when my wife crashed my car last year they looked after everything pretty well.


If you're an awful company, you surely need to make sure that your data is more accurate than the competition. It's like running an awful store, it's doable with prices low enough.
