Finally, after much prevarication, we have taken steps to change out TV/broadband/phone from Virgin to Sky. Such a palaver involving lengthy waits on the phone and finally Virgin offering a cheaper deal than Sky. Win win you may say, but is it?
Every year we go through the process of finding cheaper house insurance, car insurance, travel insurance etc. as the original provider assumes loyalty and whacks a hefty increase on their quote. Its all a game and most of us play it. But is it right?
There will come a time when OH and myself may not be able to research or negotiate better deals and fall for the line of least resistance. When my late dad was still driving, his car insurance premiums were double the average rate because he just paid it without question. That must be happening to hundreds and thousands of elderly people as we speak. It must also be happening to to less internet savvy or more vulnerable people.
Its such an underhand business model that prizes new customers and punishes loyalty.
What do you think?
Anyway, we are going with Sky. For the time being.
