“Don't touch with your worst enemy's bargepole”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by AbagailCrawford (1 review written)

The dog breeder who we purchased our labrador from provided insurance with this company and we have had no reason to make any claims for 7 years. However, we recently made a claim for an operation costing more than £500 only to be told they wouldn't pay as the original injury/sign of illness was over 365 days previously.... the vet can't understand how they can state their reason for non payment on such a flimsy excuse. It is unfortunate that I only find out the company are such bandits when I… Read Full Review

“Warning: Do not use this insurer”

Written on: 13/08/2014 by 110Wade (1 review written)

I want to make Review Centre members aware of extremely deceptive behaviour by seemingly reputable insurer Equine & Livestock Insurance Co. Ltd. I set up bicycle insurance with E&L in July 2013 and in July 2014 I received my 1-year renewal. I was surprised that the cover letter made no mention of the renewal cost, but digging within the 15-page policy document I was able to find confirmation of the £75.99 premium on page 7. This price was also confirmed on page 8, which detailed the payment… Read Full Review

“Legalised theft”

Written on: 06/08/2014 by LBundy66 (1 review written)

I was with E and L for the lifetime of my pet. For minimal claims they paid out quickly, in full, no quibble. When my pet passed away unexpectedly after significant treatment, E&L invoked every possible exclusion at their disposal, exclusions added to the policy as addendums rather than written into the cover detail and therefore harder to compute as one column often contradicted the other. After a duration of one month - apparently a busy one - E and L paid out 40% of the money I had… Read Full Review

“Hopeless Company”

Written on: 01/08/2014 by Sawyer257 (1 review written)

If this company pays up, you will wait weeks for the payment to come through. The letters they issue are written so badly that it makes it difficult to understand...purposefully I suspect. Watch out for the policy excess also, they increased my excess on my cat insurance policy from £149 (which was high in the first instance) to £279 which I was unaware of. I am a little at fault for not checking my policy wording in detail but the covering letter did say that for any changes the text would… Read Full Review

“They take the money and run”

Written on: 31/07/2014

I have just cancelled my policy with this company, I eventually had to telephone to get assurance that policy was cancelled as no reply was forthcoming to the original email. Claim made for minor op on paw, claim refused as there was an 'exclusion' regarding skin conditions where he scratched his tummy on bracken a few years ago (this is classed as a skin condition) so exclusion was placed back then. To cap it all today I received another letter with exclusions on Back, Pelvis and Spine. This… Read Full Review

“Unhelpful, poor customer service, exclusions a speciality”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by ajad3 (1 review written)

For reasons quite beyond me I chose E&L insurance and had one dog and 2 horses and on and a rider policy. They are cheaper for a reason, Their documentation is number based and generic so its hard to work out which policy is for which animal as they do not put that info on email headers or letters. This only becomes a real pain if you need to claim or cancel as you have to sit on hold for a very long time and eventually speak to a person, (although a good few times I have ended up at an… Read Full Review

“Avoid, terrible company!”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by murphydaisy (1 review written)

Unfortunately we are stuck with this company because we have a 10 year old Labrador and it's difficult to change policies at his age. Every time I have to speak to E&L they never get information correct. The latest mess we have had to deal with is after agreeing a renewal price they then added an extra £117. I phoned them straight away and they couldn't explain why the inflated price was taken out of our account. We now have to wait 5 working days for them to refund our money. Please avoid… Read Full Review

“Horrible Company - Misleading - Rude - Waste of Space!”

Written on: 15/07/2014 by fishingman (3 reviews written)

I took our camera insurance with E&L and was needed for that same day. On the website, it say buy your policy online. However, when you have gone through the process, and receive your email that it not true! In fact the policy is not live, and it has to be approved by underwriters. Which is fine, however, it does not say how long, and 5 days later still no word from them. When I first contacted the customer support ten minutes after handing over my details online. I was told it takes an hour… Read Full Review

“Let Down”

Written on: 10/07/2014

We have never ever made a claim on any pet insurance before so we're not exactly 'serial claimers' so when, finally, we felt financially compromised by our rising vet bill we decided to put in a claim for some help, this company wouldn't pay out. Felt very let down… Read Full Review

“E&L short for Evasion & Lies! ”

Written on: 27/06/2014 by AlinaColeman150 (1 review written)

Having paid insurance for our dog for 10 years, this company have moved the goalposts without telling us. The excesses were changed without written notification, we only discovered when the payout which arrived a full 8 weeks after the claim was made was almost half what we were expecting. Apparently we were notified by email rather than post which is not what I have requested and needless to say I haven't received these emails. Awful company - do avoid at all costs… Read Full Review

“Beware - they quote one amount and charge account ...”

Written on: 25/06/2014 by albob (1 review written)

Beware of their practices and check your bank account - they put one amount on the policy / direct debit form but charge a different amount. Have gbp 10.32 on my direct debit form and a policy but they've charged gbp 15.06. When confronted tried to weasel out stating some obscure options on page 15 of the policy. When threatened to go to Financial Ombudsman quickly "offered to reimburse as a sign of good will". It is definitely unethical and maybe even illegal behaviour… Read Full Review

I have had my horse insured with this company for 3/4years, In this time, I had my rugs stolen, which on my policy said they were coverd, rang them up, refused to pay Out at all. Then recently I lost my horse to a tumor, now I read the small print, yes it says about death by internal is not covered, but Vets fees for internal injuries were NOT in the small print as an exclusion, yet still they refuse to pay! Awful company that do nothing all for there customers, Sorely disappointed, huge… Read Full Review

“Horse Insurance Payout”

Written on: 20/06/2014 by MacieMorris35 (1 review written)

Paid out just short of £9k for two separate claims made within 2 months of taking insurance out & disposal costs when my horse was PTS Excellent value for money, customer service wasn't great at the time but always got a reply eventually (just slow) and since has improved. Did take 6 weeks to pay, but paid never the less and did pay some direct to my vet when requested Now have two horses insured with them and happy, have noticed the price 'creeping up' but doesn't everything?? I was advised… Read Full Review

“Pet Insurance”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by remada (1 review written)

I was really surprised to read all the bad reviews of E&L. We have two elderly cats insured with them. They were both 11 years old when we insured adn their premiums were £6.80 and £7.90 per lunar month. (not sure why one cat is more expensive than the other??) Anyway, the cat with the lower premium, we have never had to claim for, but our other cat with the £7.90 premium had problem with his thyroid. After many blood test, pills, and investigations, he went to London for Radiation… Read Full Review

“Horse and rider insurance”

Written on: 10/05/2014 by 103Slattery (1 review written)

They have a great way of luring you in with the reasonable first year premium. .thats where the great ends!! I had never ever claimed on any policy until last year. My horse needed investigations and on going medication. Simple and clear to understand to anybody, except e and l!! They tried their uttermost to wriggle out of paying the claim by imposing ridiculous exclusions on my policy that with the help of my vet were lifted as they were just pure make believe. After the claim was… Read Full Review

“Don't even think about it.”

Written on: 01/05/2014 by 149Reid (1 review written)

Key Points: You have to pay vet direct then request reimbursement. We waited months for our money back and had to send lots of letter/e-mails calls to the manager to eventually get it. Dog had past away and I called them to cancel the insurance, they still tried to take money out for the following month. Dog was ill for a long time before passing and vet couldn't work out what was wrong and tried lots of different test for things that it could have been, they charged us twice the policy… Read Full Review
