Uk Insurance Limited underwrite many policies including Natwest, Virgin, Ulster Bank, Green Flag and others.
As I understand it, Egg Intermediary is really just an "agent", that also gives its travel and home insurance to AXA, life and critical ilness insurance to Prudential, and so on and so forth.
This reinsurance is normal and it means that no single company will have to face a major crisis on its own. I didn't find any relationship with Renault though and Companies House doesn't list any Overseas connections. Can you let me know what connection you found please?

It's worth asking in case it has any relevance. Your solicitor's interest will be to recover your uninsured losses; he won't care much about putting Renault's World right. But in the process of winning there will be some weighty opinions expressed which might sway them.

Told I could not have any info or reports from Egg in case I decided to take Renault to court (this is what made me suspicious in the first place).!
That may be due to the wording on your policy. They cover certain circumstances but not others so you need to read your policy document carefully. I found Norwich Union Direct also wouldn't cover legal work against a Citroen dealership over negligence on a car stolen from them, and which then got cloned and ending up in my possession. Luckily, I had home insurance legal cover too (not that they did much more than try to put me off.... luckily I went on with my direct correspondence and got most of my money back from DVLA). The fact they wouldn't disclose sounds a bit ominous (alarming in fact) and a bit like they are one and the same or at least have the same goals in view. So yes, mention it to your solicitor. It may also be that they happen to be the insurers of Renault UK. ?
