“A SIMPLY DREADFUL COMPANY”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by paulc37 (1 review written)

Dont be fooled by the one star ive had to give, they are simply the worst excuse for an insurance company I have ever encountered. I wont bore you with the details but god help you if you need to make a claim - its really that bad. Every aspect of my claim has been a complete disaster- I have never had to make so many phone calls in my life. There really are not words to describe how awful AXA are so please, in the name of sanity avoid this company… Read Full Review

“AXA Trading as Swiftcover”

Written on: 17/08/2014

We had a car crash into us approximately 10 weeks ago. After waiting 4 weeks for the claim to be accepted as the 3rd parties fault we were told that the car would be collected for repair and we would be supplied a hire car, EXCELLENT was my first thought but low and behold after 6 weeks of them messing us around saying they would call us back but not doing so until the day after our policy with them ran out, the email stated that our policy is no expired so they cannot supply us with a hire… Read Full Review

“A no-fault claim seems to be MY fault!”

Written on: 13/08/2014 by PasserLondinium (1 review written)

I had to make a claim on AXA due to a car rear ending my vehicle whilst I was parked. AXA managed to make me feel that the whole issue was my fault, and were "surprised" when I expressed my disappointment with their attitudes and poor service. Stay away from this company, they are absolutely useless and don't know anything about service at all. Even if they happen to be cheaper just don't bother buying anything from them. … Read Full Review

“Truly disgusting company, appalling structure, STAY AWAY!”

Written on: 30/07/2014 by Brileyp164 (1 review written)

After getting insured with said company, I was contacted a week later letting me know that I am now too young to be insured and will be charged a £125 admin fee to cancel my insurance. After trying to fight for the admin fee to not be taken out as it was there mistake, they cancelled all communication with me, deleted my account and have had no further contact with me. My insurance was £510 which they still haven't refunded! These are a despicable company who have taken my well earned… Read Full Review

“Really bad service”

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

In February, another car hit mine in a car park and I reported it to AXA mentioning that CCTV covered the area and they should check it because while I had been manoeuvring I saw another car driving at high speed and had come to a complete stop so they hit me. The day after reporting the incident someone from AXA called me up and said they were accepting liability on my behalf. I asked them if they'd checked the CCTV - they said no. I asked why they were accepting liability - they said the… Read Full Review

“6 months and claim still not resolved”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by markliz (1 review written)

After hitting a dog on a busy road, we were assured this claim would be straight through. We paid our £250 access and 6 months later we are still waiting on this getting sorted out. Hitting a dog you can claim of the dog owners (who admitted responsibility and gave over there details). I actually had to advise AXA NI on this. After repeated calls I believe that the people on the call centre didn't know what they were doing. My first letter from them was that I admitted responsibility… Read Full Review

“Money Hungry with no sense of customer loyalty”

Written on: 24/05/2014 by McKennaaf437 (1 review written)

Having been a customer of AXA for many years I had no problem renewing my policy when they rang and was always courteous on the phone, but how things change. I had taken my car off the road, legally might I add with documentation and clearance. Because I let my policy lapse I was now considered high risk. I was even told by some jumped up call centre agent that I would be a danger to be on the road. Without even asking me the details of why the car was not on the road and even worse not… Read Full Review

I have a protected No Claims Discount of 16 years and in January of this year I was involved in an accident when a pedestrian walked out in front of me and I now find that my NCD has been reduced to 4 years despite paying an extra premium to protect my NCD because AXA cannot claim off the pedestrian.Because of this and the fact that their customer relations is no existent, I will not be renewing with them. anyone thinking of protecting their NCD would be well advised to check if this will be… Read Full Review

“Don't even bother”

Written on: 23/04/2014 by IsaacBarry110 (1 review written)

Hit a deer at 7am and limped home. Out of hours team lovely. Took details, assured me that the whole case would be handed over to the daytime team at 9am when they started and that they would ring me back. 4 hours later and 5 fruitless attempts to ring them I finally got through to their claims department to be told that the case was not logged, might take 24-48 hours to be logged and only after that could they arrange recovery. The courtesy car was at the discretion of the repairers… Read Full Review

“as if another person needs to review....”

Written on: 05/04/2014 by cnNorris137 (1 review written)

Reading all the other reviews I would say this is probably pointless, however... Via Gocompare AXA were cheapest by a long shot. £424. others at £500. So I continue to the AXA website where I am asked if I would like legal cover for £29.99. I click No. so, £424 it should be, but no, it jumps to £487. How does that work?????????????? … Read Full Review

Written on: 17/03/2014 by gillsl8tr1 (1 review written)

Very poor level of customer service. Treats customers like scallys, unsympathetic, rude and unhelpful. Non existent communication. Repeated phone calls bring little in the way of information. Information taken and held is incorrect, misread or totally ignored. Head on crash 18 days ago took 8 calls from me to get my car repairs (STARTED ,NOT COMPLETED) they have called once in those 18 days this today to inform me that I didn't have a witness and no third party and hence accident would be my… Read Full Review
