I like dealing with Hastings direct. I get everything I want at a very good price. The policy covers everything to breakdown cover, legal cover etc items I couldn't afford from other insurance companies. Customer service are always helpful and easy to deal with… Read Full Review

“Cheap car insurance”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by Yankeesfan (1 review written)

Went with Hastings Direct as they were over £200 cheaper then my renewal from another company who couldn't even come anywhere near the deal I got. I don't think I have had car insurance as cheap as I now have it. Very quick and easy to sort out online, also went through a cashback site so made money in the process. Would definately recommend giving them a try… Read Full Review

“Cheaper than others!”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by Taylor-Alt31 (1 review written)

Hastings direct were by far the cheapest company for our car insurance - that's including extras such as windscreen cover and no claims protection, when others were just basic cover. Also, my excess (including compulsory and voluntary) is a lot less with Hastings Direct than with my previous insurer and others that I had considered… Read Full Review

“Slick, easy, painless”

Written on: 17/07/2014

Hastings provided the most competitive quotation based on a large scale market search, their package included coverage that other companies neglected such as windscreen cover. The coverage was arranged quickly and painlessly with little faff which I would expect from an online service. The functionality of the web site was fine, the GUI was acceptable - nothing remarkable, but right in most respects. As the title says - slick, easy and painless… Read Full Review

“shocking length of time and money ”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by adyshaw1966 (1 review written)

After using a comparison Web company Hastings came up with a very reasonable premium on my vehicle . I used the Internet to take out the policy. After reading the policy I noted that I'd started it on the wrong date . I had no choice but to use a mobile phone to call up and alter the policy . Why couldn't I used the Internet to "edit" my policy because I spent the next 52 mins listening to a polite but slightly sarcastic lady tell me it was a "legal" duty to read out the small print (what's… Read Full Review

“kashmina car insurance purchase”

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

overall website was clear and to the point. i was able to use a comparison website to initially get basic quotes and then went into the company website to finalise the purchase. options for extra cover and what they might cover were given. the final quote was not to different from the initial quote showing that my initial details were taken into consideration fairly. hopefully i will not actually have to make a claim, but if i do, i hope that it will be as easy to progress as my purchase… Read Full Review

“Car insurance quote”

Written on: 14/07/2014 by gcAllen449 (1 review written)

Second year with Hastings but their renewal quote was too high so went online at a comparison website and got the same level of cover for about £80 cheaper. The level of cover is good for the price and compares well with other providers. I have not used Hastings services so far so cannot review their after sales in the event of a claim but feel confident they are a good company to use… Read Full Review
