A bad experience with JLF car insurance.

Already having had a bad experience with John Lewis Finance (JLF) over their change of management of their credit card, I was yet again assailed by indifference and delay when I had to make a claim on my car insurance. My car was stolen from my driveway on 29 February when thieves broke into my house and stole the key. The police were informed as soon as the burglary was noticed (and acted very promptly) as was JLF. After 3 derisory settlement offers, JLF finally came up with a sensible settlement offer on 19 March which I accepted on 20 March. I was assured that the money would be in my bank account within the next 3-4 working days. However, it had not appear by 26 March so I phoned JLF and was assured it would be in by the end of the following day. This process was repeated on 28 March, 29 March (no response because of bak holiday) and 30 March. The money finally appeared on 2 April. And to add insult to injury, I tried to claim for a few of the more significant personal belongings in the car - a Cotswold Woollen blanket, a pair of hiking poles and a camera monopod. This was rejected because I had no receipts. (The moral of this is to claim for items for which you have a receipt!) To anybody else out there I would advocate steering well clear of any products or services associated with John Lewis Finance. Reviewed on: 15th April 2024

Lack of customer service

Last year I had car insurance for £383 and they have just written to me with the renewal at £870. There's no explanation or anything in the renewal letter to explain why it is such a large increase. Nothing has happened in the year - no claims, no accidents, no speeding tickets, nothing. What's worse is I can't even get through on the phone to query it - they just play on-hold music and tell me my call is important. I've used Go Compare and got a new policy for £427 - less than half they quoted. John Lewis used to be special and have a good name, but now they're just another ordinary brand in the pack. Why bother, quote frankly. Reviewed on: 11th March 2024

Waste of time

My husband has had car insurance through JL for the last two years. He has had no accidents or claims on his policy which has been paid in full annually. This year he has received a letter stating that he should find a new insurer as the no longer wish to insure him, with no explanation or opportunity to discuss the matter - very poor service.

Car insurance service poor

I was driven into 11 months ago. Small scratch only. Wouldn't have used insurance if the other party hadn't tried to apportion blame. Photo evidence of her error. 11 months later still no resolution and so JL car insurance quadrupled my premium! So I pay for their failings. Reviewed on: 4th August 2023
