“Home insurance - quids in!”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by 888David (1 review written)

My previous insurance went up (again!) by quite a lump, despite no claims. Go Compare found me 3 quotes significantly cheaper (same cover). I'm the sort who prefers to "stay loyal" (makes life easier) so put these lower quotes to my existing insurer but they couldn't (or wouldn't) come near, so I switched. Saved £200. Result! Note - by the nature of it being a rather "generic" search, it's important you check the quotes in detail to satisfy yourself; but it still saved me a lot of hassle… Read Full Review

“Van Insurance”

Written on: 07/08/2014 by Neilsilversurfer2014 (1 review written)

I decided to change from my previous insurance company to Swinton and although it was a lot cheaper, I then moved and my insurance for changed again in price, to the original insurance price before I moved to Swinton. The morale of the story "Is better the devil you know than the one you don't"… Read Full Review

“car insurance”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by Sutherlandak331 (1 review written)

Very disappointed as a few of the quotes were better than my renewal quote so I cancled my renewal and then went to buy one of the quotes from go compare only to find that when you proceed the price goes up, I rang two insurance companies which had the best quotes and asked why the price had gone up and was told that comparison sites only give basic price without added extras, I then said that every thing on my quote was what I needed and I didn't need extras and was told comparison site's… Read Full Review

Hi Sutherlandak331,

Sorry to hear about your bad experience online. No one ever seems to give the right answers to anyone who asks, so I'll shed a little light on comparison sites for you.

If you look into the Terms and Conditions, it will clearly state somewhere "quotations are based on assumptions". Which means that in theory, whatever you put into the fields provided, is redundant.

Take No Claims Bonus/Discount for example, if you were to go onto any insurance companies website, comparison website or generally online, the assumption is "if you've held your license for 10+ years, you have maximum No Claims Bonus".

If you want to find the cheapest price possible, then use your phone and do quotations the old way, because comparison websites will always include a discount. For companies underwritten by Aviva, they'll be GEN codes. AXA, they'll be SECONDCAR, Zurich, IW and finally, Markerstudy with the biggest one "Preferred". These may not mean much to you as a customer buying the policy, but to me, having worked in the industry and currently still working as a Senior Sales Consultant in an internet based sales team, I know that each of these discounts HAVE to be removed.

These discounts range from 30%-92% depending on the underwriter and factors. If the price is on the screen, it means nothing, until a representative from that company tells you the price and asks for the business, it means nothing.

Comparison websites are ALWAYS based on assumptions and will never provide you with an accurate rate. If you want that, I'll repeat, use your phone and not the computer.

Gcompare was extremely easy to use making it very quick to compare a large number of sites in a very short spare of time. particularly useful was the ability to identifying the key features on offer from each site and the option to change choices with quick results. It also provided quick links to the relevant sites. Will use again… Read Full Review

“Building and contents”

Written on: 08/05/2014 by Haley434 (1 review written)

Website was comprehensive & easy to navigate. However, some insurers did not give full enough information in their quick summary, which meant having to open up their site to get a better idea, making it more time consuming. The promise not to bombard me with phone calls was adhered to, for which I am very thankful… Read Full Review

“Nuisance Phone Calls”

Written on: 06/05/2014

I am very careful to click NOT to receive any further literature, phone calls etc. I must have missed one as I received a call on my mobile from a company called RTA Legal Services in Liverpool. They suggested I may have had an accident in the last three years, which I have not, and that they received this information from the site. As I say, I am very careful not to ask for further contact. I suggest that there may be a 'concealed' button or a double negative clause… Read Full Review

Very simple to use, much simpler than I first anticipated! Cheapest quote came up and yes, saved me a total of £700.00. A good tip is not to leave your insurance until last minute. Give yourself a week prior to renewal to give you plenty of time. Marty, Sunderland… Read Full Review
