“Own fault claim paid out within two days”

Written on: 31/08/2015 by beckyadele (1 review written)

The internet is full of bad reviews for insurance companies, based on difficult cases, such as foreign imports, Cat D write off cars, and fiddly admin changes. Rarely does someone post a review based on the claims process itself. However, I've been with Diamond fully comp for 3 years, both with incredibly competitive rates. Apart from the fact the renewal is sent through at the same price you paid last year (so from my first year of driving, they didn't offer any saving on my £1500 premium… Read Full Review

“TOTAL RIP OFF STAY AWAY”

Written on: 15/08/2015 by Savannao1955 (1 review written)

I got an insurance policy with Diamond (aka Rip offs) I then bought at second car and see if they would provide me with a multi car policy which they did. this was then transfered to Admral which is the same company. When I sold both cars I cancelled the policy and paid the cancelation fee, I then receive a email today advising that I owe Diamond some money for that original car that I had insured with them, I then called there useless customer service and was addvised that the policy hadn't… Read Full Review

“Agree with the other reviews - avoid like the plague”

Written on: 03/08/2015 by 63Sinclair (1 review written)

Not all insurers are the same. Some really are as truly awful as Diamond, others are actually OK. Did the hard sell hen claiming to get us to do our 'no fault claim' through another company, with accompanying contracts to be signed, other dodgy insurances put in place, and I'm sure a nice fee from that other company to Diamond. Sounds hugely dodgy - probably next PPI scandal waiting to happen. We refused this. Claim progressing back with Diamond. Also charged us a delightful £39 for saying… Read Full Review

“Absolutely appaling”

Written on: 02/08/2015 by justsmile29 (1 review written)

First year £304, come to renewal £780 next to no explanation offered for a more than double increase other than a no fault accident which apparently makes me more likely to have another accident. Waiting for the quality team to call me tomorrow. Fuming is not the word… Read Full Review

“Very poor”

Written on: 02/08/2015 by Johnson1951 (1 review written)

i have given 1 star due to the fact my first years quote seemed reasonable however at the point of policy renewal the quote more than doubled and when speaking to the advisor to see how competitive they could be they could only drop the quote a few hundred pounds which was still 700 pounds more than any where else (not having claimed previously!) madness Needless to say I've gone else where!… Read Full Review

“Sceptical at first... ”

Written on: 15/07/2015 by BrandenRees257 (1 review written)

I was extremely sceptical with the company following reviews on here, however I can confirm so far for me they have been extremely helpful. The person on the phones certainly deserves a pay rise! Most helpful person I've spoken to in a call centre in a long time… Read Full Review

“Unhelpful money grabbing company”

Written on: 15/07/2015 by yqWarner390 (1 review written)

I crashed my car not long ago. It was a 2011 reg that had only done 20000 miles. It was only me involved in the crash and it happened late at night so I got my car recovered by the RAC as didn't have any of my insurance details on me, I had to pay out £200 for this. Diamond wrote my car off (though am currently getting a second estimate as no one agrees with this)they had my car for over a week before they told me it was a write off. It was actually the hire car company who called me assuming… Read Full Review

“Diamond Renewal Policy (QUESTIONS)”

Written on: 17/06/2015 by Ayers205 (1 review written)

TAKE MY ADVICE STAY AWAY FROM DIAMOND!!!! The policy renewal handler asked me numerous questions such as if my policy was still the same. I replied yes. He then went on with a number of questions like was my car stolen? I already told him that the policy was exactly the same It wasn't stolen before so why would it be stolen now? He went on with a hoard of questions which I felt was almost like a personal attack against me. He then asked the golden question of them all "HAVE YOU EVER… Read Full Review

“worst insurance company ever!”

Written on: 16/06/2015 by melonydowden (1 review written)

Diamond are the worst insurance company around! I would personally discourage all of my family friends even strangers from taking lout insurance with them. The customer service I received after an collision with 4x4 jeep (by collision I mean he drove into the front left side of my car) my car was very badly damaged and I was very shaken up! Diamond proceeded to inform me that coming off the a470 towards the new bike park Wales that it was my responsibility to stop bare in mind I was leaving a… Read Full Review

“Such. Poor. Service.”

Written on: 13/05/2015 by JPL83 (1 review written)

Initially fantastic; good service and competitive price(or so I thought). Charged nearly 30% more per month for SIX months before I realised, without ANY emails or notification. Was a result of a non claim I had enquired about and not logged. Nearly £200 being taken without any written or even verbal warning has to be illegal, doesn't it? Then received a letter threatening the use debt collection agency within the first letter regarding cancellation fee (which they told me would be taken on by… Read Full Review

“Good insurance with no issues”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by Reynolds29 (1 review written)

I used a price comparison site for the best deal and Diamond came up at the best price with a decent excess. Staff are friendly and helpful since i set up the policy, no major issues at all, everything was smooth and easy and most importantly it was at a good price. I then sold the car, so had to cancel the insurance, as usual the sales tactics to try and hold me as a customer but they were more expensive on the new car so i terminated my policy but if they gave me a better price for my new car… Read Full Review

“Diamond Dreadful Claim Process”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by AzulHoughton (1 review written)

Diamond may have cheaper policy rates but claiming is a nightmare. We were driven into last week (other driven at fault and we have witnesses etc)and we have spent close to 4 hours on the phone to Diamond and their lawyers, etc just to get our car taken for assessment and to get a replacement hire car. Very very long winded claim process and expensive spending so much time on the phone. All the staff have been very friendly but I would prefer a simpler less time consuming process… Read Full Review

“Village idiots”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by Malloy1986 (1 review written)

Insured for 2 regrettable years. Customer service is beyond a joke, changed my car advised payment would be taken automatically upon renewal date. To then be sent threatening letters saying payment was over due and additional fine in place as a result. Someone hit me from side on, insurance wanted nothing to do with it and advised not to say anything to avoid loosing no claims. HORRIFIC… Read Full Review

“ATROCIOUS”

Written on: 06/05/2015 by Cox2 (1 review written)

SHould have written this review last year but wanted to give the benefit of the doubt. Had just phoned for advice, and had mentioned a near miss when came close to colliding with a motorbike, no collision no complaints it was just a stupid thing that I never should have jovially mentioned. Then went to renew and told it was hundreds of pounds more expensive, because of an open claim. This was this incident, ofcourse nobody had phoned or claimed because there was no damage but they were… Read Full Review

“rip off”

Written on: 01/05/2015

Recently renewed my insurance policy with diamond and won't be doing this again next year! After changing my car I expected to be paying the same as last year happily. When reading my documents I apparently owned another car so rang up to change this slight problem to find out this made my policy increase by £41. After a disagreement they have still charged me £1.30! It's pathetic and they'll try anything to get as much money. My cheapest renewal quote was apparently £900 which was also a… Read Full Review

“Not for first time drivers!!!”

Written on: 14/04/2015 by kdWilliams409 (1 review written)

As a first time driver I choose Diamond car insurance as it was the cheapest on all comparison websites and I thought this was amazing! However after joining the company I have had nothing but problems!! They accused me of giving the wrong date of birth for my names driver and attempted to charge me £172.22 to change ONE number! This was ridiculous so told them I wanted a copy of the phone call (as all calls are recorded) to prove I had said it, then I received an email saying I owed… Read Full Review

“Terrible renewal price for existing customers!”

Written on: 07/04/2015

Have been quoted a renewal price of £1100 (£200 more than last years policy!) but when I put in all the same correct details as though I was a new customer looking for a new policy, I was quoted £800. Will be phoning first thing in the morning to dispute this… Read Full Review
