Great price and service when you buy your insurance, the issue come when you want to change something. This company has long delays for customer service via the phone and web chat.
I cancelling my insurance thinking I was trading in my car, this turned to dust and when I contacted the company and asked to continue the insurance 36 hours before the end time, I was advised it could not be done and my policy will expire.
So to summarise, if you buy insurance from this company don't under any circumstance change your cover, I did and it is costing me almost 3 days wages as I still have to pay the high cancellation fee. I was invited to contact the sales team to buy new insurance. Not likely.

Disgraceful behaviour from OneCall really. Very dishonest and disappointing. End July 2018 my husband took out insurance @£160 annual fee for his 07 Vauxhall Astra. At the same time we set up his online OneCall account using which he downloaded his pdf electronic documents.

End March 2018 (four months before insurance expires) his old car packs up and (after saving for a long time) we went to buy 2014 Volvo S60. OneCall charged him £130 for remaining 4 months and £39 admin fee to simply swap the car!!!

Do the maths here. Original insurance £160/12 months = £13 per month. On top of it £130/4 (remaining month) = £32.5/month, thus assuming the insurance for the new car (on an annual basis) to be £55/month, £660 per annum! I found similar insurance you can take it right now at £250 per annum. Simple maths reveals OneCall grossly overcharged us on insurance, and added £39 on top of it. It would have been cheaper to for us to cancel insurance with OneCall and take a new one out.

As BBC watchdog would say, One Calls rivals charge between £15 -25 to change car details by the phone. OneCall charge £39 (knowing you are at the point of buying a car and you naively believe OneCall will make you an honest insurance upgrade especially after then FAIL to retain your online details).

Not only not we got an apology for messing up our online account (where we could have free-of-charge or much smaller admin fee), but we were disgracefully overcharged for the remaining 4 months of insurance and £39 admin fee on top of it.

People who rate OneCall as number 1 insurance provider probably been paid to say so or never deals with OneCall and make a terrible assumption. I do, however, see a lot of people purposely creating one-time accounts to say how great OneCall is... why would that be?

Thanks to One Call Insurance Services I…Thanks to One Call Insurance Services I am now uninsurable because they don't listen and act on what they are told. On 03rd June 2017 I cancelled an insurance policy within the 14 day cooling off period. There was a discrepancy on my police as I forgot I had a claim for a windscreen 3 years before. I contacted them via telephone and made it clear I didn't want to be insured with them. They told me the underwriter (premier underwritting) had given me until 09th June 2017 too rectify the details. I cancelled the policy on 03rd June 2017 but because I didn't say too them "CANCEL THIS POLICY FROM NOW" they totally ignored my request and thus placed a cancellation on my insurance history. I am still awaiting the evidence from One Call about the conversation which I am sure I told them I didn't want too proceed with them as my insurer. Later on I took out insurance with another company,ticked the box saying 'I had no policies cancelled, voided etc' and 3 weeks later was told my insurance would be cancelled because of non disclosure. Now 2 cancellations. If I go on comparison sites now for insurance they will accept your deposit or payment but you won't be covered until they speak to you and when there is 2 cancellations which aren't justified at all,they refuse too cover me. I am 52 years old,driven millions of miles,pay my taxes,insurances and now because of some ignoramus I am now uninsurable. One Call won't help,One Call have just been done by the FCA for misconduct and spending clients money so if you read reviews take note.

I went against my initial judgement of picking a 'smaller' company based on reviews and a search engine based on my requirements for home insurance. This backfired hugely. The costs are lower, but the fees and charges extortionate. I had my policy cancelled and was charged for the pleasure for no reason. I contacted OneCallInsurance and have received no feedback or response after 4 days (even though I was given a direct email account to lodge my complaint against), and will report my case to the ombudsmen. PLEASE AVOID AND GO WITH A MORE REPUTABLE COMPANY."

Not impressed. Went on online chat to ask for quote for adding a temporary second driver, was told the underwriter didnt allow a temporary addition- never had that before with other companies. Then the person I was chatting to ended the chat saying I'd not responded for five minutes when I was waiting for an answer to a second question I'd asked. Got through to another person who said that a temporary driver could be added and she gave me a weblink that I followed, the quote was £187 for a week! It would be cheaper to hire a car for a week!! Or alternatively I was told that I could change to another underwriter that did allow temporary additional drivers, but it would cost over £70 to do that. Not impressed, won't be renewing my car insurance with them.

Terrible company to deal with, they can take you order online but if you don’t want to renew they cut you off and try and force you to stay with them
My experience is I have to wait over an hour in a telephone que every time I tried to cancel the automatic renewal they cut me off - reported to trading standards and the ombudsman
Don’t trust this company don’t waste your money
