“Esure - Car Insurance with no extras...............”

Written on: 12/03/2016

That's right, no extras at all including customer service. I had a text and missed call from Esure saying I had been involved in an incident and to call them. I thought it might be a scheme however when I called I couldn't get through and had to try again the next day. When I did manage to speak to someone it appears that my reg had been given in error and at the time I was relieved, asked for something in writing and left it at that. What I should have questioned was if esure knew this was a… Read Full Review

“Customer for 4 years. Started at 300 punds, gradually...”

Written on: 03/03/2016 by Eviem60 (1 review written)

Customer for 4 years. Started at 300 punds, gradually rose each year - then it jumped to 900 on latest renewal. I cancelled and got AA car insurance, with better terms at 297 pounds.... So much for loyalty and competitiveness. guy on phone today at esure was very rude, not bothered and basically agreed with me, when I said it was incredible. Over ten years no claims. clean licence. No convictions. Home owner. 4 years history with esure. Im like, a pretty good customer - so i thought??… Read Full Review

“2nd rate company”

Written on: 25/02/2016 by 87Dalton (1 review written)

I took out insurance with esure and subsequently was run into by another driver (their fault not mine) in October. Since this date I have had my car repaired and paid my excess as requested although esure have failed to chase up the other party and 4 months later I am still out of pocket. I have phoned esure over 9 times and they still have not dealt with it. All they say is that the claim will probably be settled 50/50 despite it not being my fault… Read Full Review

“You better think twice before using them”

Written on: 01/10/2015 by 222Greenwood (1 review written)

How did they even get the title of Defaqto insurance company? In my experience they are not customer orientated. It's 5p/min to call and they do not hurry. Then it's £26 for any changes to the policy. Read other reviews and you will note the same story!!! Never again… Read Full Review

“Esure Broker (part of Esure Group) charged us a £65...”

Written on: 02/09/2015

Esure Broker (part of Esure Group) charged us a £65 cancellation fee which was not in the original documentation. (Our car died, so we had to cancel. Not a nice time to get an extra fee you're not expecting.) To contact customer services they ask you to phone a no. which charges 5p a minute. They don't answer in a hurry. I wrote a letter (not wanting to incur a huge phone bill waiting to get through and then talking to some poor call centre person who has no idea why I've been wrongly… Read Full Review

“Cheap premium, poor service”

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

After having a vehicle drive into me, I made a claim via Esure. Eventually the other insurance company conceded responsibility, and I was told by Esure that they would be forwarding the costs that I had incurred (my £150 policy excess)once recovered. After I requested an update, after a few weeks, I was told that I had been given incorrect information, and that I would have to fight for these costs without any help or support from Esure. I now find myself up against the stone wall of… Read Full Review

“If I could give it less than 1 star I would”

Written on: 24/04/2015 by nickib (3 reviews written)

I was in an accident and my car was supposed to be collected on the Thursday morning (23/04/2015) . The "approved garage" Autospray didn't collect it till almost 5pm. This meant that, according to their SLA with the insurance company Esure (Sheilas Wheels), they didn't have to provide me with a courtesy car till Monday (2 working days). I live in the middle of nowhere with no bus service. Sheilas Wheels and Esure were both quite happy that it was OK for me to starve for five days before they… Read Full Review

“Esure sold my personal details”

Written on: 17/03/2015 by solddowntheriver (1 review written)

I had a very minor knock around year ago. Esure did settle my claim ok but I have now discovered they have sold my personal details and the details of the accident to a bunch  calling themselves the 'Traffic Advice Centre' who ring my personal mobile about three times a week. I am always very careful to check the boxes that say I do not give permission for my personal details to be shared with anyone, so this was either not offered to me or was buried so deep I didn't see it. Not to be trusted… Read Full Review

“Poor communication and customer service”

Written on: 09/03/2015 by Simkin (1 review written)

I have been an ensure customer for a number of years and have never defaulted on any payments. On 17/02/2015, I incurred a road traffic accident and later contacted esure to make them aware of this accident. When I contacted ensure to make the claim their customer service staff was extremely unhelpful and paid no attention to what I was saying and kept interrupting me when I was explaining how the accident had occurred. I was then put on hold several times and felt rushed almost bordering on… Read Full Review
