Absolutely shocking customer service, it took 2 days from reporting the claim to getting a courtesy car, one that was significantly smaller engine and smaller car which led to having to hire my own car, a cost that swiftcover refused to pay, as I was moving from the north to the south of England and couldn't fit my belongings in the 1 litre car that was offered. Spent 2 days receiving non stop calls from repairers and car rescue companies who didn't know what was going on or even where my car was going to be repaired and several hours on hold and speaking to rude, unhelpful staff at swiftcover. Avoid at all costs!!

I DO NOT recommend this insurance company to anyone. I asked to make an amendment to my policy and they cancelled my policy without any notice (after saying the amendment is fine and that they would send amended documents out, but instead sent a notice of cancellation. If I want to take it out again I have to pay the deposit again!!!!!) They don't return customer phone calls and hold times to speak to someone are very long. They hide their telephone number on their website to make it difficult for customers to call in. They are slow to reply to emails. Very bad experience dealing with this company and have since gone with the RAC who actually provided a much better deal which included breakdown cover.

Online maintenance of a motor policy is what attracted me in the first place, initially with reasonable premiums too. You only really know the quality of an insurer when you make a claim or decide not to renew. My partner made a no-fault claim and this was a very protracted experience, the main problem being you’re not allocated a claims handler, so each communication is always from a different person who doesn’t know (or hasn’t bothered to read) the past history. It was settled in the end but not before my partner opted to take it to court. My own hiked premium this year encouraged me to look at the market. My Swiftcover (part of the AXA group) policy did not include Personal Accident, Legal Assistance, Courtesy Car, etc. but I found alternative cover which included all these for a much lower premium. My main issue occurred when I wanted to cancel at the renewal date (they do automatic renewals). Despite it being an online policy they don’t allow you to cancel online so you have the hassle of calling to discuss. I cancelled the policy and received a confirmation e-mail and took out the new policy elsewhere. At the renewal date I received a text from Swiftcover saying “Good news! You’re Swiftcovered again! Thank you for choosing us again”. I was straight on the case and they had indeed charged the whole premium to my credit card. I see this as pure theft and they refuse to make immediate repayment saying we have a 7-day refund policy!! Again, every communication is from a different person. AVOID AT ALL COSTS or you’ll regret it in the end.

I have had swiftcover car insurance on a couple of occasions.

What I really like is the ease that I can amend any details with such speed. Unlike with some insurers, the swiftcover site is quick to respond and easy to find and check the details.

Even better, it is easy to check the details are correct and so it gives you peace of mind.
