“Rip off ”

Written on: 06/09/2016 by RyleighLancaster64 (1 review written)

I took out their car insurance for my husbands new car. I wish I had read the reviews beforehand. The website claims you have to provide NCD proof and driving licence details within 3 weeks. 10 days later my husband receives a letter stating that as they have not received such despite reminders they are cancelling the insurance and charging us for it. 2 days later we received a reminder letter with SAE to send the documents through !!! Reading the reviews online I am not even sure if there is… Read Full Review

“Renewal nearly trebled in price.”

Written on: 16/07/2016 by Janeyannie (1 review written)

Do not go with asda/brightside insurance. You can never get them on the phone. Customer service is virtually non-existent When you take out insurance they want copies of driving licence/v5 document/no claims proof then when you send these they take a while to aknowlwdge reciept of them. Then send you a letter threatening to cancel policy because they haven't received them!!! I had to contact brightside via their FB messages several times over the matter. Just got my renewal for this year aug… Read Full Review

“Dont use or renew with Asda”

Written on: 19/06/2016 by fnFigueroa362 (1 review written)

Asda really should stick to groceries, never had such a bad experience when trying to change details close to policy end, refused to insure a cheap Rover 25 runaround (less risk???). Accused me of breaching contract through changing details. In the end I left the policy run for its remaining 1 month just to accrue the NCB. Avoid at all costs, and if you are coming up to renewal I urge you to look elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Never insure your car with asda Insurance ”

Written on: 18/05/2016 by bukolamatuluko (1 review written)

You'd be saving yourself if you never insured with ASDA! I insured my car for a whole year, when my PARKED car got brutally hit by a random driver, outside my house! They blamed me and they refused to pay me back for the remaining 7 months balance from my whole year subscription. They claimed that I was supposed keep an eye out on my car 24/7. They would not even contribute towards a replacement car despite me using it daily in order to go to work. I gave them all my receipts used by me… Read Full Review

“Avoid like the plague”

Written on: 26/01/2016 by CharlieGarza (1 review written)

I spoke to a number of operators in an attempt to get the current years policy schedule which they had failed to forward on when the policy was taken out. I needed this as proof of no claims accrued. I must have spent 3 hours altogether on the phone repeating the same information because they must have failed to record the communications each time. None of the operators appeared to understand basic concepts. Either that or they were being deliberately obstructive. Each one I spoke to said that… Read Full Review

“PLEASE DONT TAKE OUT THIS INSURANCE -TERRIBLE COMPANY !!!!”

Written on: 06/01/2016 by Martdavies123 (1 review written)

I took out some car insurance for my wife in June as I have always been the main driver due to being a British soldier and always travelling about. When I took the policy out they asked for proof of no claims from me as a named driver and also a copy of our driving licences. At the time I was going through my HGV licence with the army and they had my licence. I explain this when I took the policy out and they said I could have a grace period of 2 months. That didn't happen they took the… Read Full Review

Am very annoyed the way this was handle. Poor telephone conversation I… Read Full Review

“Customer service very poor”

Written on: 16/11/2015 by BrendaLucie (1 review written)

They leave you hanging on a phone line for up to half an hour in order that you can get them to do what they said they were going to do the last time you rang and waited half an hour for them to answer. The phone number is not national rate either. ASDA do not deserve to have customers for their car insurance… Read Full Review

Has a quote for a renewal, phoned up to renew, or so I thought but the details that came through were different. Tried to get through to sort but have been met with rudeness.

“No communication!”

Written on: 24/09/2015 by ArmandoRobb (1 review written)

After paying under £600 for my first year, the renewal came in at £2,600 the reason being their under writers had changed. My no claims bonus has still not been forwarded and as it stands i will lose my deposit with my new insurance if this is not handed in before October. All you get when you phone is passed from one option panel to another to then having classical music playing driving you insane and being told thank you for holding. 30 minutes later still no answer. The customer support… Read Full Review
