Cheap Car Insurance!!!!!!

/

Hello all. I went to let you all know about a website called swiftcover.com (as nobody else has done a review on it yet) A couple of months ago it was that dreaded time of year again where my car insurance was up for renewal. I couldn't bare the thought of having to trawl through Insurance...

None.

You've probably seen the adverts on TV "Click click don't cluck cluck" … well even if you haven't they're worth getting a quote from. The main criteria I use when looking for car insurance is getting the best value deal. Notice I said value not price! For me that means comprehensive cover without...

Too many to mention.

My particular story began on 30th April 2008 when I insured my van (Citroen Berlingo) for Business Insurance with Swiftcover for my partner and I. I checked Swiftcovers F.A.Q,s and the relevant documentation and all seemed to be in order. I had started my Greengrocers business in October 2007 and...

Aftersales service

After purchasing a nice wee clean Peugeot 309 I had no hestitation getting a good insurance for it, afterall it was an old car. After endless hours online getting quotes from AA to Zurich, (quite litterally A-Z) I settled myself with swift cover who were promising me 3rd party fire & theft ,hire...

“Hassle free car insurance”

published 28/04/2011

everything online

none

When searching for the cheapest insurance quote, Swiftcover were at the top of the list beating many of the others by at least 10%. My actual quote saved me 12% which was just over £100 for me, six months car tax paid for just like that! When you come to insure your car with them, you do the...

“Insurance on the cheap!”

It's cheap.

I'm not convinced the staff know what they are doi...

I have been with swifcover.com for almost a year now. Although some may have been swayed by that weird advert with Iggy Pop, personally I decided to go with them because they gave me the cheapest quote on all the insurance comparison websites, and, like a lot of people out there, saving pennies...

“DONT use Swiftcover”

Zero

Appalling customer service

Advantages: Zero Disadvantages: Lots! I have made 2 calims with Swift cover int he last year, 1 for having my car stolen off my driveway, and another for having my car driven into - both claims were not my fault. I can say that having to deal with Swiftcover on both occasions was a wholly...

“Highway Robbery!”

cheap

0 customer care, incompetence refusal to pay out

Dick turpin is alive and well! now operating under the guise of Swiftcover. My tale of woe begins on 13 December 2006 when my car slid off the road in bad weather into a ditch on its roof in 3 foot of water. I notified insurance company immediately. Next day upon contacting company they proceeded...

“Swiftcover Saved Me a Packet”

Cheap Cover, No Call Centres, Serviced Online

None

I couldn't believe it when my car insurance renewal crashed through my letterbox one Saturday morning. Surely it wasn't time to renew already! I had only just finished paying for last years premium which is quite hefty. I don't know about you but I hate shopping for insurance and it seems that...

I joined swiftcover online and found it super easy and fast to get a policy. Everything is on your own swiftcover page to view (documents, certificates..) This, i thought, was a fantastic company to pay my money to, that was up until I claimed on my insurance after my car was written off. That's...

They were cheap

bad response times

I have been with swiftcover for both my car insurance and breakdown cover for the past 8 months now and had no problems up until today. The reason for having no problems is that I have not had to use the services until my car broke down about 5 miles away from home. I phoned the number given and...

Swift are great so long as you dont make a claim. They never return emails, My car came back with defective steering due to communication problems with the garage, Swift also refused to supply me with a replacement car! They work at a snails pace and do not inform you of any progress.. Due to them missing deadlineswith a court summonds I recieved a county court judgment against me.. After 4 months I am still awaiting results from my formal complaint..Do not use this company.. I would gladly pay £100 more on my premium than use this company again!

My experience with Swift Cover has been very bad. Dragging me from file handler to file handler, I have now been waiting 7 months for a claim to be processed. Obviously, it will never be. They send me a mail saying they have not a received a document (no claim discount from my previous insurance company), whereas it was sent about 6 months ago. It appears so on my custom web space. After having received such a mail, I received another one (automated this one), saying they just received such a document. Alas, nothing else happened since then, even if I tried to write to them to go on with this incident. I guess they just try to make you give up. They are about to succeed with me. I am really annoyed. This insurance is just a scam. I just cancelled my direct debit and am going to sue them, even if I know that there are few chances that I get my car fixed.

Very poor Claims Service

What a nightmare! for 3 weeks nothing happend (my car was off the road at Audi) you can't get through to the claims team when you do you get another person etc etc. Finally I found their claims site (it's an outsourced company) http://www.sims...
