SAGA, overcharging for phone quotes by more than double

My grandma (who is 84, but well) rang up SAGA as her yearly travel insurance was due to run out, as she was only due to take one trip this year, she requested a price for a 2 week holiday. She thought it was expensive but thought it was just due to her age, so paid the £300.
She then spoke to me, I thought that this was rather extortionate and checked on online price comparison sites, where I could get the same insurance, from SAGA, for around £120.

She rang them back (within 2 hours of taking the policy out) and they refused to do anything. Their only defence was that "the policy sold over the phone had £12 million cover rather than the £10 million available online. I have also complained to them and received a very bog standard reply admitting that the £2 million was the only difference in the products

From a company specialising in the elderly, this seems very unfair behaviour. She was not renewing an existing policy, and was not given the option of a cheaper policy on the phone (who would pay nearly £200 extra for that extra £2 million cover on top of the £10 million available?!).

This seems like a very shady practice on their part, especially given a large proportion of their customers likely do not use the internet for insurance quotes.

Lost my wallet on Tenerife - cash, cards etc.
Returned home, chatted to a very nice chap on the phone.

Three days later all my losses were refunded into my bank. No papers to fill in, no waiting, no messing about.

As I said in my heading, Service Extraordinare"."

My sister died and I had to cancel my holiday.
I phoned saga and they sent me a claim form for the doctor to fill in.
The doctor couldn't really help, so they phoned him.
They then suggested that I contacted the hospital.
I did this, and after a month the hospital replied.
The saga contact did most of the work for me, by telling me what to do. (Insurance claims can be a bit of a minefield).

Fortunately I didn't have to use this insurance. However I was given a good discount on the quote that I was given and it was a really good deal.

I was happy with the origional quote that I was given and went on to compare this with other companies, however I decided to stay with Saga and when I actually made the booking there was a substantial saving which was very pleasing.

My wife and I went on holiday earlier this year with our two grown up children and we wanted a family travel insurance policy to cover us as a group. We used Saga and found the whole process very simple and quick.

Underwriting is on line. Having seen a doctor within the past 12 months about something quite minor, I found other providers wanted to increase my premium by an amount I felt was unreasonable. However, with Saga, the underwriting was completed on line and the whole process was simple. Whilst there was a slight increase in premium it was significantly lower than other providers had quoted.

The lower cost did ont come at the expense of cover. The policy provided good levels of cover for various situations and reasonable exclusions.

The whole process was quick and simple from start to finish and I'll be using Saga to cover my next holiday.
