Absolutely ripped me off

PAYED 1063 in Feb for the year

Cancelled the policy due to fines which did not make any sense at all. NO LAWS Broken

Had a black box last year with a different company and never had a fine at all. HAD 95% good driving score.

Only been refunded £56 back..... From the policy....

Avoid this company as they rip people off big time.

we had a black bix for a year with another company and never had any fines or problems.

Come over to Marmalade and had a 125 for apperently late braking at a round about... then less than 60 days later 250 for apperently late braking at corner.

NO SPEED LIMITS BROKEN
NO LAWS BROKEN
DRIVING NO DIFFERENT FROM LAST INSURANCE
NO PROOF SENT
JUST SLAP YOU WITH MASSIVE FINES.

INSURANCE cancelled and gone with a company without a black box and cheaper anyway!

Marmalade has a plan that can cover you to drive a friend or relative's vehicle, provided that vehicle already has its own insurance. The Marmalade plan can cost you drastically less than your own insurance company would require you to pay. Set-up is all done online (but can be done over the telephone) and is simple and straightforward. I'm delighted to have discovered Marmalade through my son's driving instructor, and highly recommend it.

Our son has a black box policy which he started with as a learner driver with a provisional Driving licence and has just passed his test and has a full licence. We have had to contact the insurance company on several occasions for different things and even during the pandemic, they were easily accessible and nothing was too much trouble for them. The insurance was a reasonable price in comparison and was one of the only black box policies that continued the cover through from a provisional licence holder to a full licence holder.

Marmalade made it unbelievable easy to insure my daughter for learner driver insurance, offering flexibility along with competitive prices. I have already shared my experience with many friends who will definitely contact Marmalade when the time comes.

Personally I didn't know there were web sites for just Leaner Drivers so I was really pleased to sign up with Marmalade especially as my present Car Insurance Company did not insure drivers under 18 which I found annoying. On going into Marmalade's site I found it easy to use, understandable, well explained and therefore decided to sign up for 6 months. Thank you - it saved me a lot of stress hunting around for a good deal.

Im on a black box policy and have recently passed my test. Ive drive on the black box for around 1.5k miles.
Ive learnt that this is by far the best black box out there, there is no curfew, no time limit, it solely is revolved around how you drive.
However, unlike so many insurers out there, this black box has very respectable boundaries in your driving style. Everyone different and no one perfect, this is what its built upon.
Even if you accidentally speed slightly in a zone it doesn’t instantly shoot down your score, instead count how long you speed for, and as of yet i have never been penalised for speed. I dont think most learners will have a car that can go past the acceleration boundary, even with a quick start at a junction or roundabout, ive never been pulled up. Ive only been pulled up on harsh braking, it flags braking up every time you very suddenly break, now you could say what if its an emergency stop, but for other harder breaking which is needed from time to time it doesn't flag up, and really i think the relaxed nature of the other areas makes up for this.
I would recommend this to any new driver and have already done so to my friends.
This is one of the very few companies that actually allows you to drive like a normal person and get high scores, rightly so!
