Price, Local Branch, Claims

None so far

Why choose Swinton Insurance! It was the dreaded time for me to look for car insurance again as per usual I check all the price comparison websites. Swinton came up the cheapest on two of them, so I decided to go direct to their own website to see what price was available and read a bit more...

Qick cover. Competetive rates. Nice staff.

Hard work making a claim.

I used to insure my car with Swintons. Once upon a time I was lucky enough to be able to buy a new car. It was bought on finance so I knew I would need fully comprehensive cover. Swintons found me an excellent quote and I was very pleased. They were able to provide immediate cover, by telephone...

If I can give one piece of good advice, it would be do not insure anything with Swinton Insurance. When I bought a new car about 2 years ago, I unfortunately did not have time to shop around for car insurance as I needed insurance immediately. My quickest option was the Swinton branch in the...

“Swinton Car Insurance”

Easy to contact, good website, good value

None whatever

It's that time of year again - just after Christmas co-incides with when I bought my car (off my mum!) last year having just passed my driving test. Bit embarrassing leaving it so long, but money was tight and the busses were good to and from work ..... Anyway, went through Moneysupermarket.com...

Members, if I may be as bold to suggest, quite forcibly, to stay away from this Insurance Broker!!! I approached Swinton earlier this year, to purchase car insurance for my Fiancee, although the quote was quite expensive, I went ahead and arranged to insure her vehicle. I waited over 2 weeks for...

Easy to arrange

££££££££££ TOO EXPENSIVE £££££££££

Its just too easy to deal with people like Swinton Insurance and thats why i guess so many people use them, just ring them up, hand over the relevant information and let them do all the searching to find the best quote. Sounds fine done it, well i decided about 7 years ago to take the easy option...

I am 19 now but first had a car when I was 17 on a provisional licence. I called many different insurance company's and found on average most of the quotations to be over £800.00. The quotes were for a Metro 1.1 insured for Third Party Fire And Theft. I found that 'Swinton' were the most helpful...

trying to make a claim is very difficult

I have used Swinton as a broker for my car insurance on and off for four/five years. Up to now I have no reason to complain. In May my car was stolen form outside my girlfriends house, it was recovered and taken off to be repaired. It is now almost October and I haven't got my car back! After a...

I want to tell my sorry story with Swinton too. Be warned - don't use them!! We took out car insurance in 2005 - expensive but we didn't check around for better - and all seemed well, except they automatically charged us "payment protection" which we didn't ask for nor were told about. We were...

Never ever ever go with swinton!!!! They gave me a quote through tesco compare and then must have decided they had quoted it too low so decided to lie on the certificate claiming that i had typed in that i had been driving longer than i actualy have. When i called them enquiring he said very rudly that there was nobody in between me and the keyboard and that i must have typed it wrong. I then told him i had proof that i had not typed it incorrect and he said well u must be lying and then told me that the price of insurance was going to shoot up £800 ontop of the £1450 for the year...What a joke! Never go with them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

aggressive, deceitful and unpleasant to deal with

I have been paying for my daughter's car insurance whilst she was a student and over the last few years I have used a number of insurers, the one before last was through our local Swintons office. Their last quote, for renewal was provided July, 2008. As it was significantly higher than other...

We had our contents insurance with Swinton, and I did not get round to comparing prices when this came up for renewal as it was right before Christmas one year. My bank later offered, about six monts in to the policy, to beat Swinton's price by 2 thirds (and they were also going to cover up to...

I had an accident on 07-05-2009 in Poland. Since that time I’ve been trying to get any answer from the SWINGTON and HSBC insurance company. We are still waiting for the end of the case and its final effect. When I was on vacation by car registered and insured in SWINGTON insurance to Europe I...

Initial quote was competitive

Rude and aggressive staff, high cancellation fees

Swinton - never again! I was insured with them for a few months and then had a change of car. Had a phone conversation with the local office and was given a figure for refund on cancellation. When I called back later to confirm they had added very high cancellation charges (£75) and claimed that...

sometimes clogged phone lines

Swinton is an insurance broker which searches a panel of around 20 insurers to find you the best deal. They tend to be cheapest for people aged 25-50 who live in the North of England, but are fairly competitive outside their main target customers as well so its worth a try. Benefits of Swinton...
