“Avoid at all costs”

Written on: 27/04/2016 by yqHays199 (1 review written)

Please beware of Quoteline Direct. In particular, avoid its home insurance. The firm's so-called legal expenses insurance is nothing of the kind - it does not cover you to defend yourself, your family or your home. Quote line Direct hides excuses within small print that's accessible only online. How bad can it be? Well, would you really expect to be in a position of needing to sue your legal expenses insurer?… Read Full Review

“Never again”

Written on: 31/03/2016 by anatoli1981 (1 review written)

They should call them "scamlinedirect"! Very poor service, headache with the policy, the claims will never get validated and you won't be refunded for your policy if you decide to cancel it. Waste of nerves, time and money… Read Full Review

“BOXING DAY FLOODS”

Written on: 16/01/2016 by TraceyJeffs (1 review written)

We were victim of the Boxing Day floods in 2015. Having taken out specific flood cover through this company we are now having to fight for our cover while being out of our home. 3 weeks after the floods we are no nearer being sorted out. A dispute has arisen that we have been mis-sold our policy despite giving accurate information about the location of our property and paying a high premium. We are being left without any help or advice while the insurers take their time arguing between… Read Full Review

“Greedy, non existent service”

Written on: 05/11/2015

On the plus side, you get all your documentation online. Fairly cheap (I got them off Gocompare). The negatives; I've just waited 25 mins to talk to customer services on the phone. However, they were quick to ring me when it was renewal time. The worst experience related to an "incident" when someone reversed into me, left a card and accepted total responsibility. I made the mistake of reporting the incident to QuotelineDirect even though no claim was made by either party. I was made to… Read Full Review

“Avoid this company”

Written on: 25/09/2015 by Davidbsl (1 review written)

Needed quick insurance so used quoteline direct (QLD) £430 for LR defender cover. Accepted so I could look else where, was a mistake. Rang Adrian Flux, premium £192. Rang QLD charged me £40 to cancel policy plus usual £26.20 from insurance company. Essentially this company charges people extortionate (100% mark up) money on their insurance, then when they realise they have been stupid, charges them again to get out. The guys on the phone at QLD were nice but the company stinks and… Read Full Review

“MICKY MOUSE COMPANY”

Written on: 14/09/2015 by TeresaWagner (1 review written)

This is one of the worst companies I have had the misfortune to deal with. They are by no means the cheapest so you haven't even got that benefit. I cancelled the insurance because I found a much cheaper quote after I had paid the premium, they were rude on the phone, they charged me £80 for 6 days of cover and I have had to wait 4 weeks for my refund. AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS… Read Full Review

“Rude staff... Appalling service!”

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

A member of staff from Quoteline contacted me on a Saturday asking if I would like to renew... Went through all the T&C questions and then came to ask if my flat was in a commercial property a question I had never been asked before. I said yes there was a restaurant on the ground floor (I am 4th floor) they then said they would have to contact the insurer to see if they would still insure me, but they were closed on the Saturday and she would call me Monday. Monday came and went no call… Read Full Review

“Absolutely awful - AVOID!”

Written on: 10/02/2015 by cks3085 (1 review written)

Ive never posted a review on anything in my entire life. Quoteline Direct are the first to make me want to warn other people to avoid their utter incompetency. They are a broker, actually have no control of the product they sell you, wont allow YOU contact with the decision makes and offer no customer care whatsoever. Seem to spend their time banding questions back and forth, solving nothing, and driving myself completely nuts. I wouldnt want to be PAID to deal with these utter idiotic jokers… Read Full Review

“Never again!”

Written on: 29/01/2015 by Clarkyg254 (1 review written)

I will never use this company again. I bought through a cashback site which made them slightly cheaper. They then refused to pay it. I had to make 2 changes to the policy, each one costing me £30 'admin' fee.. they had 5 minutes on the phone and to email some documents. Disgusting. What should have been a £17 fee to add a driver was £47… Read Full Review

“Be where!!!”

Absolutely disgusted with this company. They automatically set up finance agreement with Creation finance. Who charge a very high interest rate on you policy figure. So they quote a low competitive price with them and then offer you monthly payments which they fail to make clear incurs a interest charge. Creation finance then charge you for everything debit card fees not signing an agreement fees. DO NOT USE!!!!… Read Full Review

“You will get a very quick answer if ringing to arrange...”

Written on: 04/05/2014 by 275Gleason (1 review written)

You will get a very quick answer if ringing to arrange or renew an insurance policy. However, try contacting Customer Service and you will end up in a never ending queue. I needed to amend my policy because of a change of vehicle and I spent ages, at the dealership, trying to get hold of someone to effect the policy change. Eventually the car dealer took pity on me and arranged temporary insurance so I could at least drive home. On principle, and with some effort, I cancelled my insurance… Read Full Review

“Insurance cancellation problems - excessive hidden costs”

Written on: 17/04/2014 by HomeInsuranceProblem (1 review written)

Avoid using this broking company at all costs. I'm moving home, so just contacted Quoteline Direct to change my policy and was horrified to to be told there are hidden cancellation costs of £131 if I take out a new policy with them and £224 if I don't. Or I could change the address on my current policy and they would only charge me four times the going rate - £330 for 6 months, when moneysupermarket is quoting £150 for 12 months. Nothing on their website about the charges. Have raised a… Read Full Review
