EVERYTHING- YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THEIR MISTAKES

i too had a bad experience with this firm and as a result did not want to renew my insurance with them. I too never received my insurance certificate etc and after several phone calls where they told me it was in the post, it suddenly clicked to them that they had the wrong address for me..can...

Expensive overall, absolutely no customer service,...

In September (sorry I lied to you earlier, it was not December - must have had a blonde moment) of last year, I got my renewal for my car insurance from the AA, guess what, it had gone up drastically. Now like everyone else, I find the average motorist is being hit hard enough with increases in...

Cheap service, rude staff in SA call centre

I have been a customer of Budget Insurance for about 5 years and have had two non-fault accidents. the first was dealt with swiftly and efficiently, my car was fixed, a replacement car was given, all with no effort required from me. My second accident however coincided with the renewal of my...

Did Not Replace the Car New for Old if Written Off...

My partner bought his car insurance through this company for the first time last year. We were unfortunate to be rammed 10 mths later and have our car written off. Three months later we are still waiting for our money. They are sending us pathetic letters, trying to waste as much time as possible...

“Excellent service and price”

helpful staff, cheap prices

Not available online :(

Budget car insurance is cheap - but the service is outstanding. I haven't been driving long and I had a small accident which wasnt my fault. I had been with Budget only a few weeks but I found they were more than helpful. As a novice I had very little idea what to do, althogh I did make sure I...

Everything

I had been with Budget insurance for a few years after I was tempted in by getting a good quote. This insurance policy cost never changed since I had the policy. I found it ok to pay month but a bit anoying receiving a new certificate every month. I phoned them, to get a quote and they quoted my...

Super

ease of use, good quotes

telephone only

Nightmare scenario - two months into an annual policy, all prepaid, your insurance underwriter goes bust! Argh! This happened to me (and many others) with the demise of Drake Insurance earlier this year. What this actually meant to policyholders depended very much on the broker you had used, and...

“SO EASY”

published 28/07/2000

Simple and Quick

none

This is how easy insuring your car should be. Make a phone call, give some details, get insurance. Life is already too hectic without having to run about chasing up quotes. I have learned over the years that this is the most reasonably priced insurance service about. They will deal with...

“WARNING”

published 09/12/2006

Cheap , but nasty

You get mugged at renewal time

They do have some really dodgy practices at renewal time. As others have pointed out, Budget (BISL Ltd) automatically take payment to renew your insurance unless you specifically tell them not to, this was NOT mentioned when i took out the insurance over the phone, so when you receive what you...

Cheapest for me

None yet

After receiving my insurance renewal last month and discovering my premium had increased from £465 to £585 despite gaining another years no claim bonus (my 3rd), I was not very happy and spent a Saturday morning on the web and/or phone getting quotes. Whilst doing so, I tried searching the web...

Cheap initially

** Dodgy business practices - please read **

This is a warning about Budget Insurance www.budgetinsurance.com I took out some fully comprehensive insurance a year ago due to them being competitive and having friendly staff. My girlfriend had an accident this year and to Budget's credit they sorted everything out relatively easily, the car...

No advantages

High rates and low service

I was with Budget for 6months, and the main reason why I went with them was I did not have the chance to phone around and get a better quote. I had just purchased a car of which I was due to collect the next day, so I needed insurance fast. I was a new driver (of 21yrs at the time) with an old...

“Conned People Budget”

published 19/05/2008

Cheap

Too many

Smart people DONOT budget. Be prepared to do all the work yourself, they dont fill in forms, they dont call you back and they couldnt find your policy if they were holding it in front of their face. My car was stolen, but wont have a hire car as my "stolen" car wasnt being repaired in the garage...

Bad, Poor, Amateur Service

I have had dealings with many insurance companies over the years and I have only ever had a problem with one other Insurance company (Bennetts Motorcycle see below) . In 2007 I choose Budget due to the low price, oh dear that was a bad decision. Budget Insurance is the worst Insurance company I...

good site

Budget has a range of insurance products available. I will be concentrating on Budget Car Insurance as they are the insurers I have at the minute. When I bought my new car (a Porsche Boxster) I was worried about getting insurance as the car is group 17 and Im only 25. Although as a woman I...
