Absolute Ripoff

Absolute ripoff, cancelled a policy and it cost 25% of the whole years premium. Wouldn't use Brightside ever again, not even if they were the cheapest. Advertised through gocompare and weren't the cheapest but zero cancel fees was great for when my daughter passes her test. Low and behold £126 to cancel a policy Reviewed on: 23rd June 2023


Do not use they're service for any circumstances... They write terms and policies in a manner unclear and then they charge you for commission if you cancel insurance, and you don't get any refund back, absolute scammers and thiefs, you get only into trouble with them !!! Do not insure with them!!! Stay safe !!!!!! Reviewed on: 30th March 2023

This company are terrible

They add premiums to your policy based on unfounded info. I then used the same info they said drove up the premium - the price is within a few pounds. Awful service - wouldn't even recommend them to my worst enemy. I've wasted £100 calling these jokers from abroad and then a further £90 calling other companies to get a replacement policy in place. Avoid at all costs, I'd give them zero stars if I could - I've never dealth with a company that is so underhand in their approach. Good luck if you choose to use them.

Absolutely shocking

3 emails, numerous phonecalls (to there customer service or lack of) and all I got was the chance to speak to them through a weblink, they should be seriously looked at. Trying to rip people off, £162 they wanted for an exit fee, then I told them I'm within my 14 day cooling off period/credit consumer act then all of a sudden it was £1.65. I ended up screenshotting It, I never thought I'd be on a page like this but they are a disgrace Reviewed on: 4th July 2022
