Ever felt like you have being shafted as that’s exactly how I feel, because we have for 1 months direct debit.

Rang to cancel my car insurance renewal today.
We have made 12 monthly payments already.
Unfortunately our 13th payment came out Nov 1st 2021 (today) and the actual car insurance expires Nov 7th 2021 which we have already made the 12 monthly payments on, as you never pay for car insurance retrospectively.
So I asked if we can have todays direct debit back as we have already made the 12 payments for the 1st year and it was just unfortunate that the 13th payment which covers the first month of the new year that I am cancelling came out today.
No matter which way I described it to the person at Tesco Finance, he simply could not grasp or did not want to grasp, that this 13th payment is for the next 12 months renewal which I am cancelling.

In the end I gave up frustrated as this individual (being diplomatic) simply could not grasp simple multiplication.
They need to employee call centre staff who can do simple mathematic calculations.
As they refuse to reimburse this 13th payment.
I wont be using or recommending them, quite the opposite.

I was insured with Tesco bank box for one year
They hiked my monthly payments up to £500 a month due to an accident
Refused to close the claim on there side so I couldn't leave them
Breached my GDPR sent all my details and ALL of my personal information out to an unknown person they did not even notify me that my address had been changed on my account
took them SIX MONTHS TO LOOK INTO THIS!
they then called me after my policy was over demanding a refund back that they granted me to keep because of the above issue.
I could not afford to travel to my key worker job, buy food or live a basic life my policy with them has now made me incur a debt of £2000!

I recently called about my Tesco Bank Home Insurance because we were "thinking about" a holiday away for over 60 days. The emphasis is on the "thinking about". I was told by the advisor that he would call me back the next day or on the Monday after the weekend. However, a week later I hadn't heard back but assumed he was busy and decided to give him a further few days. I then received an email saying my policy would be cancelled in 7 days. I called them, only to find that because I had told them "I would be away for over 60 days" (wrong) that they would cancel the policy. At the moment this is under review because I explained that it was only a query, not fact. Perhaps if the advisor had listened to my query first they wouldn't have made that mistake. I am having second thoughts about using them now so we will have to see how this goes over the next week or so.

Current Account

Closing the Accounts

I have been with Tesco for many years. But they informed me this week that they will close the Current accounts in November. I can not blame them.

The customer service is good. Everyone I have spoken to is polite. Their online portal is good, easy to use and friendly.
However, their quotes for premiums are not competitive at all. They offered me a renewal price of £1370 but other insurers offered considerably less (£765 - £1000) and with half of the total excess!
Tesco can also charge or reimburse you for any change in details e.g. if you move address, if you change where the car is parked during the daytime/night time etc. They reimbursed me for address change but took most of it in admin fees, ridiculous.

Apparently a shower that does not turn off is not considered an emergency. So we can either run the shower permanently and risk flooding (not to mention the waste of precious water) or we can switch off the water supply to our property in today’s 30 degrees heat ! So my advice would be don’t pay for the Emergency Cover because I think, like us, you will find a very limited interruption of what an “emergency” is when you come to claim.

Great customer service

All the people who I spoke to at Tesco box insurance were so really nice. I would have gone with them again if I didn't find a cheaper quote else where. Would definitely recommend to new /young drivers

Loan

One to avoid

Terrible service from Tesco loans and especially their customer services department. Very slow to respond by letter if they respond at all. Passed from pillar to post on the phones.

I was insured with Tesco box insurance for a year, with no issues. Unlike other companies, they don’t penalise you for going slightly over the speed limit. Where I live there are lots of country roads (Cornwall), which means sudden stopping when meeting other cars. My current box insurance hates this. However my Tesco’s black box was great and my score was barely effected by it. If it wasn’t so expensive to insure my new car I would definitely have gone with them again. They were brilliant.

Now just another pointless current account

Once very attractive bank with great savings accounts, now just a dead duck like so many others. Shame because every little did help
