AutoTrader Car Insurance - just DON'T do it!

AdvantagesI got insurance on my car

Quick review of AutoTrader Car Insurance

"Auto trader car insurance,DO NOT USE THEM.I decided to change my vehicle to a larger car due to towing concerns.When i spoke to them about changing the vehicleand to ammend the policy i was told i had to cancel the policy and start another which i did but only got a small amount of the premium back.I then insured my wife on the old car paying on installments just over the school summer holiday period,imagine my surprise when aftrer paying 5 monthly instalments i asked to cancel and was told i had to pay 195.00 +35 admin fee to cancel,due to what they say is small print,even tho the underwriter do give autotrader a full discount.

MONEY DEDUCTED WITHOUT CONSENT AND £50 MORE EXPENSIVE

AdvantagesCheap at the onset, but not for long

DisadvantagesRenewal policy, cancellation policy and charges, deducting money off expired cards

"The policy was automaticlly renewed without my knowledge. As soon as I received the notification I went online and found the SAME company quote me for the same insurance for £43.00 less. I called immediately to question this and was told there are web discounts. I asked if I could cancel and take out the web insurance with the SAME COMPANY. They stated I could but would be charged a £20.00 cancellation fee. I tried to explain that I was actually going ..." Read review
