If you stay with the same insurance company, my experience is that they keep increasing your premiums year on year, and you don't realise how expensive it has got because you never compare it.
I was horrified to find out how uncompetitive my car insurance had got, a few years back. Half an hour on comparison sites and the money saving expert site helped me get a far cheaper quote.
Generally I think it's cheaper to get combined buildings and contents insurance rather than separate policies.
Anyway, it's immaterial to me as I'm stuffed. My premium has gone up 40% this year due to a subsidence claim, and I doubt anyone else will insure me.
Ridiculous, as due to the remedial work it's now less likely that I'll have subsidence. But hey, the insurance company has to recoup the money it has spent, grrrrrr.
