Absolutely Appalling!
Review of Swinton Insurance Services by Gem2486

Advantages: Non
Disadvantages: Overpriced, unhelpful, mis-leading,

It is apparent now that Swinton have completely screwed me over for a number of years with my car insurance and yet insist it will take at least a week to come back to me! I was advised that my insurance had been cancelled when payment was made and the pa ... Read review

It's your fault if you didn't shop around. Sorry, but true. Gocompare have lots of meerkats to tell you so. by Secre
How could you have got it for 200% less, by my calculations that means they would have had to be paying you. 75% less maybe or 66% by sandemp

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

Dodgy practices
Review of AA by jxws

Advantages: Quick to take your money
Disadvantages: Either accept write-off on older car without knowing value or get it repaired at your own cost.

Insured with AA broker Acromas who it appears are an offshoot of AA. They've tried to write off my car without actually looking at the damage, basing the decision on age and a matrix. They won't give me an write off value until I let them take my pe ... Read review

uncontactable disgraceful
Review of Kwikfit Insurance by kat74_uk

Advantages: underwriter are great
Disadvantages: no services available as un-contactable unless for a claim.

I've just put in a formal complaint with the ombudsman. It was only when I needed to view my insurance certificate or amend my policy, that I became aware of just how awful this insurance company is. I have four different numbers for them, and each time ... Read review

Menaced by their debt collectors!
Review of Bell Direct by richard_pickman

Advantages: Cheap. And you get what you pay for.
Disadvantages: Treated like a criminal - definitely will not go near them in the future

OK, so I held a policy for a year with no problems, but when renewal time came I'd changed my bank card and the automated payment didn't go through. Next thing I knew I'm getting menacing calls from a debt collection company over my 'debt', and since I'm ... Read review

Review of Tesco Insurance by Ariesflyer
