“Racism ahoy!”

Written on: 05/08/2015 by LeslieLeonard294 (1 review written)

My boyfriend has been living in the UK for 4 years now and has been learning to drive with BSM. I got him a car so he could start learning and practising outside of BSM and got him an insurance quote from compare the market. It was about £400. I had recently paid £300 insurance for my new car. When they wouldn't take the money for his insurance they rang up and said that the quote would have to be £1000 as we lived in a dodgy area. However we live in a very safe area and I only just got and… Read Full Review

“Be careful of prices offered”

Written on: 25/03/2015 by AlmaMoser3 (1 review written)

3 times I have informed Compare the Market of pricing being offered on the site then increasing significantly when clicking on the link - everytime they ignore my challenge, stating I must have changed something later on - which is not true, I even took screen shots to confirm nothing had changed - still they ignore.....in my honest opinion either Compare the Market or the companies using this service are hoping that vulnerable people do not understand nor realise and purchase anyway - surley… Read Full Review

“Their online form forces you to accept them contacting you”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by Townsendhe488 (1 review written)

After filling in pages of forms with personal details you get right to the very end, just before you get your quotes, where there is a box saying you agree to comparethemarket.com contacting you, with no way you can decline. This is the only company I know that does this. All others give you a box you can tick or untick as necessary to opt out. As a person who takes every step I can to avoid getting junk mail, cold calls or spam, I will not deal with comparethemarket and I do not recommend them… Read Full Review

“QUOTE INACCURATE GOES UP WHEN FORWARDED TO SITES”

Written on: 16/09/2014 by Yosef167 (1 review written)

went on to the compare the market site for car insurance and the top six quotes when i went to look further into them rose between £80 - £120 per year. So don't trust this site it gives out misleading information, other comparison sites give you the price and the price doesn't move and compare the market have the ordacity to say no extra charges??? no just inaccurate quotes. was easy as others to fill in but waste of time if quotes back are made up. might as well just have a list of potential… Read Full Review

Compare the Market have this lovely little advert that simply states buy car or van insurance through Compare the Market to receive free Meerkat Toy. **THIS IS NOT THE CASE** I purchased van insurance through Compare the Market yet 3 months later..NO TOY! I contacted Compare the Market as I had heard nothing from them only to be told that unfortunately my claim for a toy had been denied! When I questioned Compare the Market about their handling of the claim and the fact that I had waited… Read Full Review

“Dont give your time / details,reviews are much more...”

Written on: 11/08/2014 by Celestei1971 (1 review written)

Even when the annual payment box ticked the price given was not kept to. On completing the forms to 3 insurance company's all quotes increased when the monthly instalment option was not taken. The prices increased from £165 to £245!!! In other words their money is made with 103% APR rates not insurance, oh and possibly a little marketing with all of our details given in trust. So I went with Direct line in the end, at least their price structure is transparent and truthful! … Read Full Review

“No Meerkat”

Written on: 10/06/2014

The whole hype over using this medium to get your insurance is the free toy. apparently we qualified but,after a very long wait,no toy! It is very difficult once this happens to ever get your toy,in our case we never did,their website is not geared up to deal with problems in this department,I think with most people the system is just too awkward it is just not worth the hassle in the end,they get their commission then they don't give a damn… Read Full Review

“Hoodwinked by compare the market.”

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

I purchased house insurance through this company for the sole purpose of finally getting a baby Oleg toy for my daughter. The purchase went through without any problems and keenly awaited the arrival of the toy. Three months later I receive an email stating that there was a problem with my purchase and that I " hadn't purchased a qualifying insurance policy". This wasn't stated during my quote or on final completion of the policy, very convenient for compare the market!!!! Is this how the… Read Full Review

“One Call did it all”

Written on: 19/04/2014 by Gaviscon (0 reviews written)

We went through Comparethemarket.com and came up with a good priced home and contents insurance of £155 (our quote from our usual insurer - LV Insurance was obscene and far too much being over £400). I decided to phone One Call direct and go through our requirements. I got through to SM5 - he was extremely professional, informative and went through all my queries, explaining everything in detail to me. He wasnt pushy at all when suggesting other items we might like to add. The cover… Read Full Review

“Junk mail vendors”

Written on: 07/04/2014 by Kandro (1 review written)

They will sell your details to postal & telesales services based on the career you put in the form when requesting a quote. I got letters to my postal address about my career and how I can enhance it. This is how they make money every time someone asks for a quote. How do you think they can afford so many Tv adverts. They are the king of spammers… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/03/2014 by buffy8 (1 review written)

No meerkat, paid for house insurance in full on line I've been told that it could take 90 days to confirm I've taken the insurance out. Don't know what systems they're using obviously not emails or telephones. Still got 70 days to go, Grandaughter is really disappointed and the tv ads are a constant reminder.Price was good but wouldn't recommend if you're hoping for a Meerkat Reply to this comment Report this review… Read Full Review

No meerkat here either, paid for house insurance in full on line I' ve been told that it could take 90 days to confirm I've taken the insurance out. Don't know what systems they're using obviously not emails or telephones.
Still got 70 days to go, Grandaughter is really disappointed and the tv ads are a constant reminder.
