“dont use this compeny”

Written on: 25/07/2014

“very poor. No help at all”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by Brownwx437 (1 review written)

I took out insurance with Skippy based on the online price. What a mistake,never again. I needed to add my son to the insurance for 24 hours, this has been done on several occasions with the previous insurance, no problem. I tried for over 2 hours to get through over 3 days, with no luck. Forced to take out a 24 hour policy with another company. I e mailed with my complaint, they finally rang me and offered an apology. I explained it had cost £4.70 in phone calls and would they offer any… Read Full Review

“Rubbish Service - DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by gjFagan237 (1 review written)

I took out a policy with GoSkippy about 3 months ago. I have come to changing my car as the original one was a temp car to find out that the new car would cost me a fortune with GoSkippy (not a big deal at this point). So obviously being able to easily get a policy elsewhere at over 1/4 of the price I requested cancellation costs which were almost the same price as my actual policy! On top of this it takes a minimum of 30 minutes to get through to them over the phone, unless you want to take… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2014 by Deckieb (1 review written)

Disgusting company. Please avoid at all costs. I went on holiday and while there they wanted proof of my non claims bonus. Fair enough. I explained I was away and as soon as I was home I checked my mail to see they cancelled my insurance. My car never left my drive from day one of my policy. The baskets gave me a refund of £164. I called to understand what they did and was there a mistake. I might as well be pissing against a hurricane. Should be shut down. Waiting for a reply from the… Read Full Review

“Totally incompetent. Don't be tempted by they low prices.”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by Fedosss1 (1 review written)

We had a policy with them since October 2013, as it was the cheapest policy that we could find. Problems started to occur when we needed to alter the details on the policy when we moved the house and when my wife passed her driving test. Very straight forward change requests, you may think. However, we had to spend hours on phone, speak to five operators and neither of the requests are fully resolved even now. The only way to contact them is via premium rate phone number and every time you do… Read Full Review

“AVOID! WORST INSURER EVER!! ”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by White462 (1 review written)

This has got to be the worst insurance company i have ever used!! Apart from every time i call there is a minimum of a 30 min wait and this is on a good day! You used to have to pay £30 per every amendment (still ridiculous!) this recently went up to £50 which i had no clue of! I cant say that all the staff are rude because when i FINALLY do get through they seem to be ok most of the time but they can be extremely unhelpful! It takes them forever to answer an email - if your lucky to get a… Read Full Review

“useless”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by nella.b (1 review written)

The worst company I've ever used! First time when I had a problem and rang (apart from waiting 30 minutes in a queue...) woman was very unpleasant and unhelpful. I can't even say she helped, I felt like she wanted to put the phone down on me for asking her standard questions as: where I can find info on the website... Later when I asked her if they have a land line number and/or if she could call me she just answered: we can only take calls and there is no other number than 0844.. which was… Read Full Review

“Completely no cover!!!!”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by Stacyt194 (1 review written)

I have had an accident few months ago when someone else barged into me from a left hand side. First i was accused by this insurance company of causing this accident even though i have supplied them with a clip from my in car camcorder showing clearly that it was the other drivers fault. I wrote a complaint to them and threatened them with a legal action, straight after they've sent me an apology letter stating that they have just reviewed the material provided and that it clearly shows my… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional amateurs ”

Written on: 15/07/2014 by Lolaa389 (1 review written)

I recently took out scooter insurance with GoSkippy and like another reviewer on here, was insured for around 1 month before things came undone. I had provided evidence of my Australian drivers license and no claims which at first satisfied their requirements, but later, once their underwriters had checked the no claims, problems began. First they told me they did not recognise overseas no claims, I requested to see this in their policy - no answer there. Next I was told the no claims could not… Read Full Review

“They Would Do Anything to Cancel Your Insurance”

Written on: 14/07/2014 by Chris80 (1 review written)

I have had an insurance with GoSkippy until a few days ago - it lasted for a month. I have a full EU driving licence and I did the insurance over the phone with one of their staff. I insisted on the fact that, if it would be cheaper, I can change my driving licence into an English one (as it is only a formality) and I would call them back in several days. They said that the licence I have is all right and I don't have to change it. I sent them an email several days after, with my driving… Read Full Review

“Flippin useless”

Written on: 13/07/2014

It's taken nearly 2 weeks to transfer insurance from one car to another - a very simple procedure that could be done within the hour. Several telephone calls and emails and still nothing - they have my money of course. They made sure of that. I will never use this company ever again… Read Full Review

“WARNING. DO NOT USE. Worst call center in the UK and RUDE.”

Written on: 11/07/2014 by 212Love (1 review written)

Iv had a lot of problems with my insurance but Go Skippy Manager looked into things and did an amazing job of finding out the problem caused by another insurance company and sorted it for me. Big thank you. Ok there may be problems with GO Skippy but what company hasn't?. BT? Sky ect. for what they charge they get you on the Road.. the only problem is the long waiting on the phone... but this is why your saving 300 or 400 a year. cheaper service.... but its a service that makes you road… Read Full Review
