“never get insurance with go skippy.”

Written on: 01/05/2015 by Holly45 (1 review written)

After paying around £160 deposit then paying first payment of £72 the company cancelled my insurance and would not give me any refund. I got no help when speaking to managers and several other peoplewgen trying to get thing's sorted. This as left me stuck now and they are tellng me I have to pay the full years insurance even though they cancelled my policy. Please be aware if you do try this sham of a company. No wounder its cheap insurance just so they can rip people off. Its a joke. This… Read Full Review

“NEVER USE GOSKIPPY”

Written on: 21/04/2015 by stanley1005 (1 review written)

Let me expose their trappings you should avoid. 1. Never make an error with how long you've had your license. 2. Never use them if you have a claim. The guy in India will give you the impression it id being factored in. In any event, their agent or staff abroad will convince you to get the policy. The amount is two months upfront. Now get how they get your money: When you scan your documents to them with discrepancies i.e, length of license etc, they: 1. Triple the price without your… Read Full Review

“this company is a joke”

Written on: 14/04/2015 by CesarLeonard3 (1 review written)

I am an existing customer bound by law through the most ridiculous paper work I have seen. I took out a policy with the pretend insurance company above for a scenic Renault for my first year of passing my test. the amount was that of £135 a month which seemed reasonable at the time. I then changed cars to a 51 plate fiesta and went to 150 a month then because I changed address bearing in mind I had one payment left for the year they charged me £190 and said I had 14 days to pay roughly %60 of… Read Full Review

“excellent service”

Written on: 13/04/2015 by amandah1982 (1 review written)

After purchasing my first car I opted to go with go skippy as it was the cheapest by far, despite noting bad reviews. However, as I was duped into buying a very bad car I have had to change cars halfway through the policy. I have again been quoted a very cheap cost for this, a tiny admin fee of £30 and experienced excellent customer service! I cannot fault anything at all. All costs were explained to me in full. As long as the small print is read thoroughly and you send your documents… Read Full Review

“CHEAP PRICES....BEWARE!! It may come back and bite you!!”

Written on: 09/04/2015 by Lee2702 (1 review written)

I had taken my insurance out with Go Skippy for the simple reason they were the cheapest quote on the comparison website I used. Had an email two days ago reminding me to forward on my ncd proof, copy of driving licence etc. So yesterday I thought better get that done before I forget again. Sent via email last night had a responce within an hour saying my licence had been validated but they need proof of no claims discount which I'd sent at the same time as my licence. I've sent it now… Read Full Review

“Shameful and Useless”

Written on: 09/04/2015 by Drakequ375 (1 review written)

Do not trust this company. I had the misfortune of taking out a car insurance policy yesterday. Having submitted my documents over and over again, I kept being asked again and again, despite emailing it to them. Then due to a discrepancy on the date of my licence, informed me of additional charges of over £130 plus admin. I've just earned my 6 th year NCD and have all my paper work from insurers from each year. I was told by Tesco Car insurance and Esure to put the same amount in years for… Read Full Review

“Disgusting service AVOID!!!!”

Written on: 07/04/2015 by aeO'Reilly156 (1 review written)

Took out a policy in October and this is where the fun starts! I changed my car to a lower insurance group car and paid £50 admin fee plus £300 to add the car?! They then took the liberty of upping my premium from £145 a month to £352 a month! After a long list of phone calls and waiting in the queue for over an hour at a time I eventually got through and after asking why my premium had gone up even though I had brought a car that was 10 insurance groups lower than the 1 I 1st insured? She… Read Full Review

“Totally untterly dreadful money grabbing company”

Written on: 05/04/2015 by Robert354 (1 review written)

They were the cheapest so we went with them. They proceeded to demand £50 and more because one of our driving licenses was 5 1/2 years old and not 5. Makes totally no sense. There is no option to say a diving license has been held for 5 1/2 years - and no option to put in a date of when the test was passed. They told me I should have called them as soon as I took the policy out. I tried to explain that the concept was silly but the lady on the other end (I think from an indian call centre)… Read Full Review

“never ever!!!”

Written on: 04/04/2015 by Kysonj474 (1 review written)

It's the worse insurance company I have come across. Don't expect them to meet you half way (if really needed) they are happy to ignore your problem and offer you all sort of other products instead (which I wouldn't buy even if cheapest). Awful experience, but valuable in the same time as now I know to go for well known and reputable companies… Read Full Review

“Worst Insurer in the Market”

Written on: 31/03/2015 by cardsman (1 review written)

appalling level of customer service and on top of that these guys are master are cheating you. When you are looking for a quote at any of the comparison websites you will receive unlimited calls from them and even offers to sell you at a price lower than what is being quoted onlines and once you become a customer is when you see the realities behind it. Everytime you call customer service you are in a queue waiting for at least 45 mins to an hour and number 45 or 55 in the queue. Once you are… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2015 by Mateoy1979 (1 review written)

They are so bad! they take your money immediately then after that the problems start! They bombard you with calls and emails asking for extra information! Documents that they didn't need before like both parts of a drivers licence, NCD, birth certificate, Car log book. Once i paid my deposit of £129 through the website i get a call from them telling me that if i was still interested they could get me a cheaper deal! i told them that i had just purchased online so she simply hung up on me… Read Full Review

“rubbish service”

Written on: 26/03/2015 by Morse121 (1 review written)

Stay clear of this company. I purchase a policy with them in October to have the premiums paid monthly. The money wasn't going to be debited from my account but my mother in laws as the car was to help in transporting her around. When I purchased the policy online I paid an upfront fee and gave bank details for a direct debit. When I cancelled the policy last week as the car is no longer needed and has been sold, I was informed of a £50 cancellation fee, which I found acceptable as I was… Read Full Review
