“What a Diamond geezer!”

ProWilling to match quotes and very approachable

ConsNone

In true Emma style I had left my car insurance renewal to the very very last minute. In fact, I think it expires at midnight tonight! Nothing like living on the edge eh. I had received my renewals notice from Diamond, my current insurer, weeks ago but it's been sitting in a drawer at home...

I had my car insurance with diamond for three years. This review was first written when I was coming to the end of my agreement with them at the end of 2009. I first signed up with Diamond because they were the cheapest quote I could find for a learner driver with a VW golf, back then my premium...

“Never Again...”

ConsIf you have to make a claim you're on your own

Before writing this review I read through some of the others as wanted to get an idea of what other people thought and there does, as another reviewer pointed out, seem to be a trend of everyone who hasn't had to make a claim thinks they are great... Unfortunatley I happened to be one of the poor...

Whether you agree with Diamond's statement, that women are better and safer drivers than men, or not, you're still bound to get the best deal for car insurance if you've just started driving. As years and wisdom are not on my side yet, I cannot say for a fact, but I should imagine that as you go...

ConsGirl only cover

My husband would disagree with the statement that Diamond attracted me with. This was that Women are more careful drivers than men. He claims that they are more dangerous when he is cursing and moaning about being stuck behind someone that is driving slower than he is. Well the facts don't lie do...

ConsYou can't use them if you're a bloke.

Hmmm... I dunno. There's clearly a pattern in these reviews which goes, "great until you make a claim" but then find me an insurance comapany to which that doesn't apply? I found Diamond via the confused.com website. I have quite a low opinion of the insurance industry which is probably not...

I am afraid that my fingers will start smoking once I get typing as I am still fuming from a recent insurance claim with Diamond. I suppose that the true test of any insurance company is when you have to claim. MY STORY..... At the beginning of this year I had an accident where I skidded on ice...

“Never Ending Problem”

ProNone whatsoever

ConsShould never be touched with a bargepole

After almost a year we're still dealing (unsuccessfully) with Diamond and all their other companies. The following is a letter I sent to my own insurers in exasperation! This is a long-standing case dating back to an incident on 17.08.06 at which I was not present. My husband was stationary at a...
