none that I can think of.

I have recently been shopping for Car Insurance both on the Internet and on the telephone. I spent all day Friday on the Internet just looking at 5 sites and then I telephoned 2 insurance places as well. When I say all day I mean from 9.30am to 4pm with a break only for lunch! Then Sunday I spent...

meant to be good value

cannot get through to get a quote!

What is the point of having a large insurance company when it appears almost impossible to ever speak to a human being? I have called a total of ten times in two days doesn't result in a single human being, this is one car that is not going to be insuraed with CIS next year! There is no facility...

No real problems

If you are young or old, try asking for a motor insurance quotation from the CIS. My vehicle is a Range Rover with an engine conversion. Most companies would not even quote, the CIS insured it at normal rates, and these rates are very competetive. Also, if you do happen to have an accident, I...

“CIS - Ticket to freedom”

CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!

Any normal 17 year old wants to drive, it's always been something I wanted to do and it certainly gave me the freedom that I'd wanted, freedom to drive yourself places, or just to enjoy the experience. The control of a vehicle. But as with most things there is always a catch and have certainly...

Cheap, friendly

Unable to buy online

Having trawled the internet for insurance quotes CIS provided me with the cheapest quote by far. My insurance costs me just over £45 a month. Compared to other quotes I am saving (on average) £50 a month. I am 17 driving a K-reg 1.1 Rover Metro. My dad is the main driver, he has had a license for...

“Good prices, average service”

Good premiums, low excess, esp for young drivers

Call centre can be slow, and you have to do most t...

I changed to CIS a few years ago, and at the time saved about £200 and substantially reduced my excess (over 100% less as I recall). I have found that it sometimes takes a while for calls to be answered at the call centre (from 3-20 mins). It's also difficult to get quotes for changes to an...

cannot fault

I have been insured with the C I S for nearly 7 years and i have always found them to be the best for my car insurance. When i got my first quote from them over the phone it took hardly any time at all and they cut my insurance cover from another competitor and saved me well over £200 in the...

My experience with the co-op had been good if it was to the offices and not my broker. He was hard to get hold of, had no answer machine to leave messages and would send out odd bills of around £10. with no explanation as to what it was for. Then unfortunately I had a car crash, the other person...

“CIS - Great Service!”

published 03/07/2006

Great service, Extremley cheap cover

Bit slow on claims

CIS insurance is the cheapest insurer i have found to insure both of my cars. Bearing in mind i am 19, male and own a 1.6 16v Vauxhall Astra, I still got covered for only £391 a year, this was on my dads policy but his no claims bonus got transferred into my name. (you will have to ask them about...

“Very efficient insurer”

ethical company

not the cheapest

I was insured by co-op insurance for several years, I never had any problems with them as I luckily didn't need to contact them. When i did need their help, after being rear ended by a 4x4, the acted very quickly, I had a courtesy car within 24 hours, they came and collected my damaged car, and...

I had this product for about 2 years and the price was quite cheap as compared to other insurers I got on the internet. Their registration process was quite good and quick. The document policy is presented in a nice wasy which mas if authentic. I only cancelled the policy when I sold my car. The cancellation process was quite straight forward as compared to the one I had with AA.

good website

awful customer service

At first, CIS offered my partner and I a clear website to get our car insurance. CIS offered us a competitive price and I read some reviews and asked some people who they recommended. As no other option presented itself we decided to get CIS. Once we made the agreement it went a bit crazy. We...

I'm happy for you. You brought up the claims issue. That's the problem with a product like "no deposit" insurance--not that I have any experience with your company--but when you limit yourself to a very rare type of search, you leave yourself open to be taken advantage of. It's the old story of supply and demand. So you are right to be concerned about claims. I hope you took a look at the policy duing their ten day "free look" period for any "gotchas". http://www.boomer-survival-guide.com
