I used a search engine to find car insurance and Hastings Direct,whilst not the bargain basement bottom, was very competitive and offered all I needed such as a courtesy car for a really good price.I went with them and all communication has been fabulous so why pay more for a " name " very pleased with them.

I bought a new car due to there being problems with my previous one. I had been insured with them for two years prior. I phoned to change my car on my insurance (already paying £600) and they quoted an extra £1200 on top of my existing £600 I already paid. I was extremely disappointed as I was a happy customer at this point and never had a problem with them.

After receiving a renewal price through the post from Hastings Direct, the price was quite a bit higher than what I was paying. I called to cancel my car insurance with them and the customer service agent I spoke to put my details through again to see if they could get a better price. They offered me payments that were £10 per month lower than what I was paying and lower than all the comparison sites had given me. Very happy!

I have had the most terrible experience with Hastings direct. Following accepting a renewal quote, Hastings accidentally cancelled my policy leaving me with no insurance. I was told they were unable to rectify the problem despite taking whole responsibility for the error. They told me I would have to pay double the original renewal quote. After 5 days with no insurance and being told that it is illegal if I drive my car and that there is nothing they can do to rectify the mistake. I logged a complaint and after 5 days I am still without car insurance and I am yet to hear anything from the complaints team. The customer care is atrocious. By far the worst insurance company I have ever had to deal with. If you want a good quality insurance company with good customer care, do not insure with Hastings direct!
