My cat Bee was unfortunately knocked down and we thought we were going to lose her. If it had not have been for direct line stepping in and taking over all the financial parts then it would have been a lot more stressful. We called them to explain what had happened and they responded straight away and organised for her to be treated at her vets. I didnt have to worry about anything. Bee fully recovered and igruly believe it's because direct line were so fast in responding and getting her the treatment she needed. I would definitely recommend

My car was smashed into whilst parked outside my house and the driver ran off after writing off two other cars in the process, the police wouldn't take my car and had the fire brigade move the car to the side of the road, I called Direct Line at 1am and they had someone come out to collect the car for me that night, they managed to repair it, and a few weeks later when another issue came up on the car I called, they had someone come out with a courtesy car for me while they took mine in to be looked at and fixed, when I took it to my garage they woudln't even look at it for 2 weeks and offered no courtesy car. Direct line really did offer a fabulous service and I'd love to use them again, if my premium doesn't go up too much EEEKK!

Super Easy Great Price

I’ve been with Direct Line before and left due to them hiking the price constantly. Checked back a year later and the price was very reasonable and better than any insurer through any comparison website. Also offer discount due to having house insurance

Quick and easy claim handling

My experience with the claim handlers was great. Quick, friendly, efficient and informative. As a result of this experience I stayed with Direct Line the following year with an expected price rise. Unfortunately when I went to renew for the 3rd year (after over a year no claims) the price really leapt up so I had to move to another provider.

Avoid this company

Refused to pay out on storm damage to new build house initially claiming that there had been no storm, then when I proved their had been stated that the damage was a 'maintenance issue' with the roof. In any other type of business this would be...

Refused to pay out on storm damage to new build house initially claiming that there had been no storm, then when I proved their had been stated that the damage was a 'maintenance issue' with the roof. In any other type of business this would be fraud, but apparently it's ok because it's an insurance company.

Someone drove into the back of my car earlier this year and Direct Line has been great helping me sort everything out, making sure I had an appropriate hire car (the first one I was offered was a smart car and I had to try and get a toddler in the back! They immediately upgraded me to a more suitable car).
