ProComprehensive; easy to setup

ConsSmall print

**** Introducton **** Many people I know berate this form of insurance (for that is what it is - insurance). It can be a small price for peace of mind .... but do your sums first. **** Overview **** I have had a Warranty Direct on one car. I purchased a 1 year warranty on my Vauxhall Omega which...

A really good experience. I have taken out a 2nd policy with Warranty Direct for my new car. I had an Omega 2.6 V6 which I took out a £290 gold cover policy. After a few months of ownership the car was using coolant and white smoke appeared. I took it to a network garage Nationwide Autocentre...

ProA car warranty that is worth the premium

Consnone

I have to say I was really impressed with Warranty direct. With all the negative press and talk about car warranties, I wondered whether I should take out a warranty and what would happened when my car went in for a repair. Would the service meet the promise in the advertising? When the water...

ProProblem free service

ConsFrom my point of view, none

I have found their settlement of garage bills prompt and painless. I drive a large car and consequently have had, in eight years, some large garage bills. As long as the repair was sanctioned by WD. engineers, no problems. Obviously you need to have kept the previous years service record plus MOT...

ConsToo many ways to refuse a claim

I have always been dubious about any form of insurance as the aim of any insurer is to take a premium and find an excuse not to pay a claim. WARRANTY DIRECT are a perfect example as per my experience. In May 07 I took out their Gold Policy providing their so called top class cover for my Mercedes...
