Ask Admiral? Never Again!

AdvantagesCheap premiums, good for younger drivers, UK call centre

DisadvantagesAwful customer care!

"...nearest competitor of Budget Insurance. Admiral were quoting a figure of £430 per year for a fully comprehensive policy, covering husband and me in a Vauxhall Corsa Club ( 3dr1.0 12v, 51 Plate) for 10 months on one of their no claims bonus excelarator policies. Budget were quoting us £514, so Admiral were miles ahead in terms of price. This online quote gave Admiral a few assumptions, like we wanted to pay Annually, like our car was garaged overnight, ..."

Aye aye, cap'n!

AdvantagesOK services.

DisadvantagesOK services.

"Having used Admiral now for a couple of years in order to insure my car, I would just like to write a bit of a review on them - not that I have ever had to contact them at all in any way for any real purposes, but I thought it would be nice to just share my own experiences of them for any of you lovely people out there who are currently looking to renew your car insurance. I have just renewed with them again for the ..." Read review

Cheap Insurance? What??

AdvantagesFast, friendly service - great quotes for under-25s.

DisadvantagesThey probably aren't competitive for older drivers with a good N.C.B

"...little or no No-Claims Bonus, Admiral are well worth a call. If you go Fully Comprehensive as well, you get full breakdown cover from Green Flag (I think it's Green Flag anyway!) for about fifty extra quid. That's the full monty 'Homestart' one too - not just roadside assistance. Motor Insurance is a very competitive market, there's no doubt, but you might just walk away laughing after you've had a chat with Admiral. Under-25 drivers - give 'em a ..." Read review

Check your renewal premium

AdvantagesCheaper than other companies, sometimes!

DisadvantagesRenewal premium doesn't match online quote, slow unreliable customer service

"...you have a policy with Admiral for your car insurance you may find this helpful. In fact whatever insurance company you are with, this MAY also apply. I am going to tell you about my dad's experience with Admiral. He took out a policy with them last year and it cost him around £350 which was quite reasonable. About three weeks ago he received a letter from them thanking him for renewing his policy and informing him that the amount of £410 was going ..." Read review

Beware when claiming from Admiral

AdvantagesLooks like a good premium deal

Disadvantagesjust read the report!

"Admiral may look good when you're paying your premium, but the real test of a good motor insurer comes when making a claim - this is what happened to us. I'd like to register a big black mark for non-communication between departments, poor customer service, and some blatant porky-telling. I was recently involved in an accident where my car was damaged, but is still repairable. I was towed into the local main agents for Citroen who usually service ..." Read review
