I think this review is totally fake the company hasn't even been going two years has it so how can it be your second year?
They can keep the pathetic kangaroo bribe too (paid for with money swindled from 176 and rising very unhappy customers!)
DEAR READER: We cant all be wrong please avoid this firm like the plague or suffer the same fate as us!

I suggest reporting to Go compare and compare the market and all those types of comparison sites they are sites that drive customers to this firm in the first place, If enough unhappy folk give them feedback on GOskippy they may stop using them and then Goskippy wont have any customers and will hopefully go skipping off into the history books! ;-)

Everything was ok until i tried to update my circumstances (address) then the premium suddenly shot up 3 fold from my original very cheap quote (cheapest on gocompare!) Very strange as i got quotes my self that were cheaper if anything than my current premium, seeing as my new home had a drive!. When i said no chance im not paying that! they instantly cancelled my insurance (No discussion or anything no bartering or price matching nothing!) and shortly sent me a bill for 280 odd quid and held… Read Full Review

“Somehow my experience has been totally different”

Written on: 13/10/2014 by RoccoHansen250 (1 review written)

I have been with GoSkippy for 10 months, when I initially signed up with them I was late sending documents in, I sent them an email to say I was waiting on my licence being returned, and that I'd had to ask for replacement proof of no claims from previous insurer as I had lost it. No issues at all - my insurance wasn't cancelled and no extra charges. I just sent them in when I could. I recently had to change car on my policy and given the tide of woeful reviews for GoSkippy on here, I was… Read Full Review

Initially I joined go skippy due to being in a tight financial spot and not being able to afford a hefty deposit. Dont be fooled!! Go skippy wrote to me within a week and told me they were increasing my policy by £116.00 with zero explanation as to why! When I called them for an explanation they simply could not give me an adequate explanation. However, as they were threatening to cancel my policy by midnight if I didnt pay it I was left with no choice than to agree for them to spread the… Read Full Review

I have had dealings with them this week and they are still not providing me with a satisfactory reason for their charges. I am writing to the insurance ombudsman this week.
They did refund me £10 of the call charges as a good will guesture. Not good willing enough I am afraid.

Please I encourage you to write or email a complaint to watch dog, the more complaint they received about this company the better.

I believe this is a money making company , they attract customers for cheap insurance then used every trick to cancelled or the customers cancelled the insurance Bcz of desperation and annoyance, so they have peoples money but no road responsibilities.
The sad things is they will still charges for every money they can rip you off.

I am one of the victim fell for cheap quote as I don't have lots of money for insurance but ended no insurance , no money, no cars Bcz I cannot afford to ensure again to another company , I hv to stretch penny to save up for new insurance.

We need to take action so this company will not rip more people. Every voice will count.

And also please make your complain further to ombudsman. If we don't unite and do anything about this, they will rip many more people.
