I have edited my review since reading these comments, and yes I suppose it was more of a rant, I have kept my rant in the review because I think it might be useful to show how the company deals with problems. Also RICHADA I think I might use your reviews as a template from now on they quite superb in their format. by DannyMetcalfe
Ok that was my experiance with the company Other companies like AXA or Tesco have treated me with more understanding and recognise if they have made a mistake. What I was trying to get across was the fact they didn't listen and made no efforts to correct their mistake. by DannyMetcalfe

Not good
Review of Elephant.co.uk by AllyH42

Advantages: Most people seem to think they are cheap
Disadvantages: Try to sell you extras and put premiums up for the smallest "incident"

Seems cheap at the outset but watch out. The premium quote goes up for the slightest thing, whether or not it is your fault or a claim has been made. They also spend quite a long time trying to sell you extras on your policy. I was not entirely certain w ... Read review

Low Insurance - Extortionate Admin Charges
Review of Kwikfit Insurance by jamesharding84

Advantages: None
Disadvantages: Hidden Costs, Excessive Admin Charges, Poor Customer Service

Don't be fooled by the lower quote... there's a reason. I went with Kwik Fit Car Insurance as it seemed to offer a good deal. A lot lower than the next quote which I had listed. Thinking it was a good deal I signed up. All was well until I actually need ... Read review

No surprises here and they wonder why insurance companies have a dirty name! As far as the review is concerned, unfortunately this does not constitute a review of kwikfit and their insurance services. R. by RICHADA

Worked there and glad to have left!
Review of Life Insurance, LifeSearch by MattAdams01

Advantages: a wealth of knowledge and training can be had
Disadvantages: not a friendly place to work short/medium or long term, very demanding and 'soul destroying'

I had worked at LifeSearch for 5 years. The atmosphere was great when I started, I was giving great advice and really helping people get the right cover for my clients. My ethics was a fine fit for the company and thus, ended up one of the top advisers wi ... Read review

Perhaps suggest ciao add this under the careers/employment section, as it is useful information, just not relevant to anyone approaching lifesearch as a consumer by Thehonesttruth

Compare your comparisons
Review of comparethemarket.com by misspurple7

Advantages: Easy to use site, gives a good idea of cheapest providers
Disadvantages: Quotes not always cheapest. Worth comparing comparisons.

We've all seen the adorable 'Compare the Meerkat' TV ads, one of the most successful ad campaigns of recent years. Not only are the characters adorable, likeable well animated and memorable they also manage to get across the name of the company, what they ... Read review

Review of Zenith Insurance by alexwhite1980

Advantages: Cheap
Disadvantages: Completely uncontactable

Zenith require lots of documents to be uploaded. However, their upload site does not work. I can never get through by phone, they never respond to emails. They are generally an awful company to be with. They are cheap, but I would strongly recommend spend ... Read review

Review of Globelink.co.uk by SiegfriedDurr

Advantages: good prices and good policy features
Disadvantages: none

I went backpacking to Ukrainian Carpathians with my wife and 14 y.o. son having bought the standard policy for backpackers which cost about 100 pounds covering my son for free. What particularly caught my attention was their low excess level which was 40 ... Read review

Wide choice of adventure activities covers
Review of Globelink.co.uk by Adventurer26

Advantages: they pay out
Disadvantages: not enough freedom in adventures

Well, simple sightseeing and bus tours are not for me. What I look for in travelling is adrenaline and adventures like hiking, mountain biking, parachuting and many many others. And my dream is to try them all during my lifetime. Of course, these things a ... Read review

Canoeing belongs to the 1 level of hazardous activities, according to Globelink. We added an excess weaver and paid 50 pounds for two people. Then I got 3 ponds off the price for sharing on Facebook which is offered on the one of the last steps of purchasing. We spent almost 100 euros for my medical treatment and I got it all back in two weeks after claiming. by Adventurer26

They compensate your spending
Review of Globelink.co.uk by HarryO.02

Advantages: prices, comprehensiveness
Disadvantages: Nothing bad so far

I've had a long and mostly sad story with travel insurance companies. When I turned 60 most of them suddenly became useless since they do not insure seniors. Still I wanted to travel and doing it without a reliable cover is too careless in my age. Initial ... Read review

Some good points made but more detail needed, so as Richada says have a read round some reviews here before submitting again. Welcome to Ciao. by Violet1278
A very warm welcome and a far from bad start here on Ciao. I think reading around the site - there are many fantastic travel reviews on here - will give you a better idea of what we're all about here. As far as the subject goes, we've some friends in their 80's who still travel all over the world - WITHOUT insurance - it scares me stiff, the very idea of it, having broken my leg and ankle one year on a trip to Poland!

Review of Globelink.co.uk by Emma0112

Advantages: Good prices
