Last year I was paying about £680.00 fully comp, my renewal came in at £1300.00, The lady said that the first payment had been taken. This renewal was unacceptable so I asked for a new quote for 3rd party fire and theft, Just over £1000.00. I cancelled the policy and then got hit for cancellation and other rubbish. STAY AWAY FROM from Yes Insurance, I will never deal with them again... (read more)

I have a few vans with various insurance companies. I was furious when I called yes insurance to add an additional driver to be then told it would increase the policy by 200% when the same driver put onto another van policy only incurred an admin fee of £40.00. I cancelled the policy immediately and found another insurer Auto net van insurance that were cheaper than Yes insurance by 300% even with the extra driver. My advice is DO NOT USE YES INSURANCE THEY ARE RIP OFF MERCHANTS (read more)

Shocking customer service, when asked to change my address (to a safer area where the car would be off the road) they actually tried to charge me £116 extra even though the admin fee for changing details is only £15. They don't let you speak to a team leader, don't return calls and are generally unhelpful. I wish I'd paid a bit extra and gone with a decent company (read more)

Do not use this company, they may come out cheaper but are a bunch of scam artists. We got a new car and wanted to change the vehicle documents. We went from a Q5 to an A6 estate car same engine but less value, they came back with the excuse that our insurance company now deemed the new car a high risk and would not insure us, instead they offered us a new deal at £1200!! an increase of £600!

I only wish I had read the reviews Yes Insurance had before taking out insurance with them. I initially took out insurance with this company as they offered a very competitive rate and foolishly I took the policy with them.

I used various online search engines for insurance quotes when purchasing a new car. Yes was the second cheapest and I decided to go for them. Knowing I was moving house 10 days after getting the car, I got quotes from all the companies for both addresses. Yes quoted me the same for both. A week after taking out the policy, I phoned them up to advise of the new address. To my surprise they informed me that would be a GBP45 increase in my premium.

I have had our second car insured through Yes for 5 years without any problem. They quickly settled a flood claim in 2008 without any major hassle. and a glass claim earlier this year. The renewal notice arrived and because it was good cover and not outrageously expensive, I decided to let them renew automatically as previously. The letter said in 3 PLACES that it would be automatic and I need do nothing else. Imagine my chagrin when a letter arrived 3 DAYS after the policy expired telling... (read more)

Yes Car Insurance are cheap for a reason! The staff have zero customer service skills. My car was written off while I wasn't even in it yet they refuse to log the claim as 'non fault' (though they were more than happy for the insurers of the young lad who drove into my car to pay up).

Bunch of bandits basically. Policy was costing me £25 per month, 4 months to go on it until renewal, but I've now bought a new car, so have to cancel. £111 for the privilege. Not really got much choice since I need the no claims proof for the new policy.
In effect they're charging me more than the premiums left on the policy; I'm fairly sure that this would be covered under unfair contracts law. (read more)
