Well, as a website for this merchant I added none other that Guess what? I received this reply from the theiving bastards.

Unfortunately your application for to Direct Line have been denied.

The most likely reason is that the merchant did not think that the content of your site was suitable for them. To see if the merchant has a specific criteria when evaluatating affiliate sites, please see the merchant program page.

The funny thing us of course, whenever I mention Direct Line on this blog I get Direct Line adverts pop up from Google Adsense, so their ads are on here anyway. Doubt my site is much of an advert though. If you want to be ripped off and lose the whole value of your car, go with Direct Line. I did, and my car is still sat dormant 14 months on!
