“Beware not to loose your money”

Written on: 19/03/2017 by GiadaCooley (1 review written)

Unethical selling strategy and can end up loosing money in the long run. After taking the policy they will call you to lure you into unnecessary optional extras. Then by default they set it for auto renewal and without much warning sneakily renew the policy and if you want to cancel the you would be charged with a cancellation fee. Not trust worthy at all… Read Full Review

“Generally Very Good”

Written on: 06/03/2017 by Dewi1789 (6 reviews written)

I've been with Admiral for my car insurance for a good number of years with the exception of one year, when another company was cheaper. Other than that, I've found Admiral to be very competitive. Historically, I was attracted to them because their call centre staff were so friendly and helpful (even the claims call centre), and I could understand them!!! They are like most insurance companies in trying to gradually up the premium each year in the hope that the insured doesn't go shopping… Read Full Review

“DISGRACEFUL COMPANY”

Written on: 05/03/2017 by Justice29 (1 review written)

ONE OF ADMIRAL'S CUSTOMERS, A 17 YEAR OLD, KILLED MY HUSBAND AND BADLY INJURED ME. COURTS PROVED HE WAS 100% TO BLAME, YET ADMIRAL ARE NOTHING BUT AN INSULT TREATING US LIKE WE ARE FOOLS AND TRYING TO GET OUT OF PAYING COMPENSATION. I TRULY WISH I COULD FIND A WAY TO SHOW THIS COMPANY UP TO THE PUBLIC TO LET THEM SEE THE WAY THEY TREAT THE PUBLIC WHEN THEY ARE NOT TAKING YOUR MONEY. THEY ARE NOTHING SHORT OF CRIMINALS IN THE WAY THEY TREAT VUNERABLE PEOPLE WHO ARE GRIEVING… Read Full Review

“Unbelievable rubbish from the advisor I spoke to today!”

Written on: 12/02/2017

Tried to get a multi car policy online, but ended up with an error message on the website which I couldn't resolve, phoned the Admiral number and spoke to an advisor, who proceeded to ask if my forename was spelt with a K or a C, I forgave him for this, he then asked if my surname was spelt with a K or a C, I forgave him again, but not for the fact he basically told me I was confused by the website, which would only ask me to call the Admiral number anyway and I should proceed on the phone, at… Read Full Review

“Another person complaining about autorenewal”

Written on: 26/01/2017 by steveb_online (1 review written)

I was with Admiral for 6 years. Each year I had to bargain to get a better quote, but for the last few years they seemed to be reasonable value and I didn't have any issues (or claims). My renewal letter this year stated (in bold letters) that I would save £220 from my previous year premium with Admiral. Sounded like a great deal, until I checked what I paid last year. Their quote was actually £160 MORE than last year. I moved to another provider (and saved £200) immediately and informed… Read Full Review

“Underhand practices”

Written on: 10/12/2016 by AdrianMullins (1 review written)

I had car insurance from Admiral. They sent me a renewal quote which was 40% higher that the first year despite having no claims throughout the year. I shopped around and took out a much cheaper policy with another insurer. Admiral contacted me saying they had automatically renewed my car insurance and took the money from my account (as I had given them my bank details the previous year). I had not encountered this practice of taking money from peoples accounts without them having accepted the… Read Full Review

“DISHONEST: BEWARE AUTO RENEWALS”

Written on: 28/11/2016 by AmeliaRegan (1 review written)

This is the second year where Admiral has tried to double my existing premium with their auto renewal service. In 2015 they pushed through an increase from £960 to £1904 before I noticed. I immediately cancelled the policy when I saw the charge on my credit card. I reapplied as a new customer and my premium dropped to £999. This year they tried the same thing and quoted a renewal price of £1873. By now my loyalty and patience had worn out - I moved to a competitor for a premium of… Read Full Review

“Expensive in some areas”

Written on: 02/11/2016

The website is long winded and not short and easy like some for example Marmalade's mobile web page. I had to fill in numerous answers for provisional insurance. In the end they didn't insure my area so i went with marmalade who did. I didn't find their customer service centre that helpful either… Read Full Review

“Well worth looking for.”

Written on: 13/09/2016

I took out their house and contents policy earlier in the year as it was fantastic value and it had an offer of 10% off, if you used their car insurances. As both my wife's car policy and my own were due renewal, I decided to look at Admiral for comparison purposes. I am very glad I did, because I reduced the costs by around 30% for the same cover, using the multi car option. Very happy with the service. Cannot fault any of the products that I have used. I did look at their travel insurances… Read Full Review

My daughter is at university in London, and comes home during holidays or weekends off. I tried to insure her for the time she's home ie. 10 days, but was told I had to insure her on a weekly basis, even if she wasn't even in Manchester, which I find very unreasonable. … Read Full Review
