Waste of time. I did two quotes on two different computers for a holiday. one with and one without blue light "discount". The one with blue light was more expensive! I went to Halfords today, I saw that there was a special 10% in store code just for a few days. When I got to the till the lad told me that the bar codes have been misprinted again, that it's a common issue with bluelight and he couldn't give me the discount. I won't be renewing next time it's due. so poor.

Dropping it down to 2 for the moment as I'm trying to renew and I've been waiting ages for the ID check. There is no answer to my ticket and live chat is unavailable most of the time. Getting frustrated as there are things I want to book before the bank holiday.

Now had an update so it looks like a webpage so it's harder to navigate, very small and not at all like an app. Don't like this new look. Can't find My Savings any more. Have saved a good amount of money for the cost and some good Company discounts included.
