“Cheap Insurance? What??”

published 04/08/2000

Fast, friendly service - great quotes for under-25...

They probably aren't competitive for older drivers...

At the age of 21, I bought a Ford Escort Ghia (1994) 1.6 16v. With no No-Claims Bonus, the cheapest insurance quote I got was £1000, Fully Comprehensive. Yes, you did read that correctly. My occupation isn't dodgy and I have a clean license as well. Anyway, my poor car got stolen and my premium...

“Ask Admiral? Never Again!”

Awful customer care!

My husband has a less than pristene driving career, 2 crashes exactly a year apart ruined any hope he had of gaining a half decent insurance premium last year. Luckil he has no driving convictions then when it came to renewal time in April 2005. After using one of the broker sites, husband came...

“Aye aye, cap'n!”

OK services.

OK services.

Having used Admiral now for a couple of years in order to insure my car, I would just like to write a bit of a review on them - not that I have ever had to contact them at all in any way for any real purposes, but I thought it would be nice to just share my own experiences of them for any of you...

Looks like a good premium deal

just read the report!

Admiral may look good when you're paying your premium, but the real test of a good motor insurer comes when making a claim - this is what happened to us. I'd like to register a big black mark for non-communication between departments, poor customer service, and some blatant porky-telling. I was...

“Check your renewal premium”

If you have a policy with Admiral for your car insurance you may find this helpful. In fact whatever insurance company you are with, this MAY also apply. I am going to tell you about my dad's experience with Admiral. He took out a policy with them last year and it cost him around £350 which was...

Not for me

cheaper than some

more trouble than most

I've been with Admiral for about eight years now. They've always been cheap (ish) and their customer service has been acceptable if not the most praise-worthy. However, an incident occurred when renewing my policy this year that made me see them in a whole new light. I had been running a Land...

Cheap, but comprehensive cover

None that I can see

I have always insured my car with Admiral, and have found them to be excellent. Being 19 when I bought my car, and having had one accident already, I expected that my premium would be huge, but Admiral were by far the most competitive, quoting me pretty much half what all the other companies in...

“Bonus Accelerator Beware”

published 28/12/2000

Cheap Cover, Friendly Service

Minimum Excess High

My husband and I have both been with Admiral for a couple of years now and started like a lot of people on their 'bonus accelerator' plan. Basically this means that you get one years no claims bonus after only 10 months but obviously your premium then becomes due for renewal 2 months earlier than...

We have had our car insurance with several different companies over the years - some big, some small.. But two years ago we switched to Admiral after getting a surprisingly good quote. We never have big, flash cars or even particularly new ones because of the mileage we do for the business (45...

cheaper than many big names

website can be slow

I never accept the quote off my current insurers as being the best for the coming year. I do however dread having to give my details to other companies as I know that I will have a pile of mail and emails ordered for me this time next year. I do try and limit the number of insurers I get quotes...

I went with Admiral with the misdirected notion they were a decent company. So wrong was I! I was stupid enough to stay with them the two and a bit years I was with them. And each time they raised the premium. To top it all up, when I did comply with the motoring law, they decided to punish me...

“Admiral - No Thanks”

published 29/04/2007

Good if you have money to throw away

unhelpful, expensive, slow

I would not rate admiral as an insurer. I was with admiral for about 8 years. The first quote i had off them was fantastic. I had a new car and they were charging me £230 for a years fully comp insurance. I had no problems the first year. I got my renewal through for the next year and it had gone...

I've been with Admiral for two years now, and rarely speak to my insurance company unless I'm due for renewal. I found them via the price comparison websites and the entire set up process was hassle free. This year I bumped into another driver, completely my fault and really silly of me. Admiral...

Price and possibly a household name

Unfair Terms & Conditions

The Admiral Group comprise Bell Direct, Hastings, Admiral, Elephant.co.uk and Diamond amongst their better known names. I was insured with Admiral in 2001 for my MINI Cooper and admit that I didn't bother to read the Terms and Conditions. Admiral have a clause called the "Standard Parts...

None as yet.

After my years free insurance running out on my Ford Ka, I did the usual hunting around for cheap car insurance for my year old car. Being 18 at the time I was expecting my car insurance to be high, but when I got the highest quote of approximately £1900 from Ford Insure, and then less than half...
