Unfortunately I’m now very disappointed with this company my initial call was very helpful but since taking over £700 of my money they have threatened to cancel my policy one for proof of no claims bonus which were disclosed and proved and now saying insurance data base saying iv had 3 fault claims in the last year which is totally incorrect iv had one which was disclosed at time of quotation though information has been sent from my insurer proving one claim in 2018 you now wish me to pay £35 to change the date which your company has wrote down wrong on policy which is out of order and no fault of my own and disclosed at time of quote and on paying and rechecking !!! Appalling

Very confusing so far. I was given a quote and accepted it. Then more money was taken from my account because the national database was giving mis-information (which I explained). I was advised to contact previous insurer to remove (which they did), but am having difficulty getting back the extra money taken. 24 hours later I don’t have a receipt for the money taken or a policy. I have received countless useless emails from them, have just spoken to them to see if I need to do anything more, and was told (after being on hold for ages) that the documents would be in my junk mail. They are not. All in all. I haven’t a clue what is going on.

Advised this was for a company insurance policy and was told this would not be a problem Policy came through in my name minutes later even though I was assured it would be in the companies name Been trying to cancel for over 24 hours with no joy Do not use this company, pay extra and get genuine insurance

I’m very unsatisfied with the service I had it seems in the organisation staff didn’t seem overly sure of wot was happening. I had various phone calls like they were working from different companies not together!. I still received different answers from different t people one saying the policy was setup and the other saying it needed amendments! I will not be recommending your company to my many customers and friends.

Not happy at all. I provided my driving license check code on the call and have just seen an email saying my insurance is going to be canceled because I have not provided this. Shocking!

Avoid at all costs. A superficially low quote but then hours to get them the documents through their dysfunctional system followed by cancellation threats and a big hoist in premiums.

I cancelled my policy on the 17th October and promised that the refunded money would be in my account within 3-5 days. It's the 1st November and still mo money, dispute chasing. I would never recommend to use this company. Long waiting times and delayed refunds with no explanation.

If I could give a lower rating I would avoid this company they can’t be bothered to call you back and charge enormous fee for cancellation even though we asked at the time terrible customer service I was told I could not speak to a manager as it was only a few pence what a joke

Very unprofessional. Trying to find out what information they want is like trying to get blood out of a stone. No one seems to know what they are doing. I wish I hadn’t used them. I dread to think what making a claim with them would be like. I will never use them again

WOW!! all these bad reviews and not one response from Van Compare... I too have just been sat on hold for 40mins listening to the same piece of music. Gave up and will not be renewing either of my vehicles with this company. Van compare are obviously not listening to the reviews as they all seem to be about poor customer service.. Obviously not interested in quality of service!!!

Poor customer service with poor attitude Long waiting time on phone 50 minutes on several occasions does anyone ever answer the phones , just put you on hold. Cancellation of policy notice even after taking the time to eventually speak to an operator disclosing* the relevant details. Wished I had never bothered with this company .

Obviously very under staffed, have to wait 40mins to even get through to anyone, and when you do there is a very delayed response between talking as the must be taking multiple calls, as well and not seeming to be very helpful
