I've been with RH for years and have had very little to gripe about with them. But I last renewed before Hiscox took over. Let's hope their renewal figures are sensible, or I'll be giving Peter James a call.
What I found was the post-Hiscox RH renewal was ~20% higher
It's a multicar policy I've had with RH for 12 years, and up until then had been outstanding.
The second gripe was the change in excess (for no apparent reason) from 0% (as agreed) to Â£150 - which could easily have been missed if I was napping.
When I rang it, seemed like they were expecting my call and had all the words ready... not how RH used to feel.
As part of the discussions I mentioned I'd bought another car days before (1995 R8) and when they told me 'they don't insure Rovers of that age as classics', I reminded them I had a 1996 Alfa 146 on there the year before and a 1996 Citroen XM without problem either, two years prior. I made them go back to the underwriter twice, to no avail. or
However, FJ did want the Rover on their online quoter (although only after upping its value to over Â£1k), hint hint.
So the whole fleet was lapsed with RH and FJ took the coin and I saved ~Â£150 with a much less excess
RH lost a long-standing customer.
