Excellent

ProCheap, fast, easy

ConsRealistically, none.

Finally, after what feels like weeks of replacing reviewing with having a real life, I have come to a crashing halt. I'm fed up of the five men who seem to think I'm theirs, chocolate and ice cream have rebelled against me by giving me spots all over and thanks to my Electric bill this month I'm...

Being young and driving a fast sporty car always poses a problem when it comes to insurance. I've come to expect the high prices, but this year, following the purchase of a car imported from Japan, I've faced the most hassle ever getting hold of car insurance... That was, until I came across...

ProCheap policies

Conspoor, poor service

Three months ago I was involved in a car accident that was absolutely no fault of my own, and as if that wasn’t stressful enough, the handling of the situation by my car insurance company: Elephant.co.uk, has been nothing short of a living nightmare. I would not usually write a review of...

I'm pretty sure everyone has seen the cheesy tv ads with the man talking about cheap car insurance with another man in an elephant suit trying all sorts of ways to interrupt him. It's mildly amusing, but has nothing to do with cheap car insurance, and isn't particularly convincing really. That is...

Okay I have to admit that I don't know a great deal about the company and I only have limited experience with them but I thought it may still be worth me explaining my experiences with them, having used them for my car insurance for the last year. To start with, I (finally! don't even ask lol)...

“Elephant Car insurance”

published 09/02/2007

Pro Low Deposit and good prices

ConsOften you need to call them

When it comes to car insurance, some insurers advertise themselves as cheap on television and then when you actually recieve an online quote, their prices are beyond ridiculous. I find that the most expensive companies are the ones with the most television adverts and supermarket car insurance...

ProAre the cheapest we could find.

ConsI'll let you know when I find one!!

We had our car stolen from the drive of our property and although the car was locked and the keys safe, it didn't matter to the insurance company, we were stung for exhorbitant rates anyway. The car, when found was a complete writeoff. We were devastated but fortunately were able to replace the...

Procheap insurance

Consnone that I know of

Elephant.co.uk is the first, as far as I can tell, truly Internet only insurance company (run by the Admiral Group). This should be good for customers, as they will have fewer costs, so will be able to offer cheaper car insurance. Much like Internet banks can offer their customers a higher rate...

Had to renew my car insurance this month and since this will be the first time i have had to shop around (have bought new cars each year just to get free insurance) I did a lot of research into the best and cheapest quality around.

My personal advice to anyone would be DO NOT BUY INSURANCE FROM ELEPHANT.CO.UK. A drunken man travelling just short of the speed of sound crashed into my car at 2am one Sunday morning around 10 weeks ago, the police attended and the man was taken away in an ambulance. He will be charged with...

I am 27 and I drive a group 17 hot hatch, I live in a low risk area and I have 4 years NCB, and I have 3 points for an SP30. Below is my experience with Elephant - because insurance is such and individual thing, it would be unfair of me to tell you anything but my experience over the term of my...

ConsSudden change in costs

My first encounter with Elephant came when I moved to London and was quoted over £1000 by another company to insure a 15 year old VW Polo for a year. I heard about Elephant through a friend, and gae them a try. I immediately had a quote of £680 for a ten month bonus accumulator policy. This is...

Being young and driving the kind of car I have, I was fully expecting to get a royal rogering when it came to renewing my car insurance January gone. Needless to say, it didn't disappoint and the cheapest quote by some £120 was from, suprisingly enough, the AA. Then just a few weeks ago I saw a...

Having read the other opinion on elephant.co.uk, i felt compelled to offer my opinion. My insurance on my car was up for renewal this month, and so i did the same thing i do every year, i got literally dozens of online quotes from all the insurance companies online, and guess who came out best...
