Default SAGA car insurance.

Don't laugh at my SAGA car insurance.
You have no idea about the ignomy of receiving weekly junk mail for over 50 years of age.
You may well laugh but it will come to you some day.......

After SAGA gave me silly quotes fir my car insurance for years, last year they came up with a very good deal for my car including top notch breakdown cover.
However in terms of customer service its been like dealing with the Crankies looking after my data and my insurance.

How dim can an organisation be ffs?
I'm not so much angry as incredulous that they could get my info so badly wrong.
Well its saved me from getting anymore insurance of any kind through them and I will not be obtaining a quote from them either.

So just a heads up to the over 50's on the forum and I know there are lots and lots,
Just don't bother with SAGA.

'Er, or me, not sure which, got a SAGA magazine subscription some time ago, none of us ever paid for it, so I can only assume, that my mate set us up with it before he passed away, last year! It's the sort of trick he got up to! He put my name on the ChumbaWumba fan club website years ago, for ages I got a load of leftist/Gay rights activist crap coming through the door! Bastard so he was for doing things like that! Anyway Back to Saga...you tried cancelling a subscription with them? Worse than Readers Digest! They talk to you like you've lost your marbles and got Alzheimers! We've still not mangaed to get the fucking thing cancelled. What's worse, the missus is beginning thnk the mag aint too bad!

No ooooooooooo......... You'll be going on cruises for pensioners and going to tea dances.
Nah probably not.

With my car insurance, SAGA invited me via a leaflet in the post to join some premium group thing they run, so I had to sign up online to see more of what it was about.
That's when it got messy. SAGA online did not recognise my email address even though it was the one I used to join and its the one I used to check and get copies of my new ins docs. So I thought no bother I'll sign in under another email address I use and create a new login for this new scheme. But it would not accept that either. So just to confirm I was genuine it asked me to verify my policy number, which I entered maybe 6 times for saga to say sorry we do not recognise that policy number, go away.

So it appears that they lost my data in the way of my email address and my policy.
I then went down a 2 1/2 month complaint fiasco akin to beating myself with a old cucumber over the head.
End result = nothing
SAGA are muppets. I still have no idea how or why they lost my data.
Imagine phoning up when you've had a shunt for them to say sorry we have no record of that policy number?

Well they wont be now, Ive basically told them that my data is not safe in their hands and therefore I will not take out insurance with them again.
Simple solution to a problem they haven't acknowledged or will not?
Anyway .... bye SAGA

As long as you aren't paying for it, you can always do what I do with junk mail and bin it......

I used to get a load of those foreign lottery mail shots, even a couple from as far away as Australia. I would take the post reply envelope and fill it with the free menus that come through the door, after a while I stopped getting them......
