They renewed my insurance without my consent and USED MY BANK DETAILS WITHOUT MY PERMISSION to take money from my bank. NO LETTER NO PHONE CALL just an email that goes into your spam box to let you know!!! I called and they say I signed an automatic renewal, This is a LIE as I never did this to ensure I go each year through compare the market to get the movies deal. THIS IS A FRAUD. THEY ARE A JOKE. Cancelation fees + penalties is more than £300. I am SO ANGRY. They are a bunch of LIARS, DO NOT GO WITH THEM

Suffered a none fault accident in March 19 having been with Tesco for a few years.

Call to report incident was quick and easy with no trick questions and understanding call staff. Transfer to a claims manager, who took details and was informative. The same claims handler dealt with claim start to finish, and was always the same person to call me.

Tesco settled at a reasonable price for my total loss, paid within 2 hours. Even paid for the car seats within a few hours too.

I was very happy with the service, when I was offered the amount for total loss the staff allowed me time to consider the offer and were not pushy or reluctant to help.

I was pleasantly surprised and I’d love to stay with Tesco but my renewal has come through too high, which is indeed very sad!

I had a tesco car insurance policy this year but my car failed it’s MOT, so I decided the cheapest option was to scrap it. I bought a newer car on the Saturday and was hoping to just transfer my insurance over to the new car, but this was not to be. I ended up getting cheaper insurance with another company, (even tho my new car was more expensive and had a bigger sporty engine.) when I got hold of tesco on Monday, they charged me £40 for cancelling my policy(which I was kind of expecting ) but then charged me ANOTHER £43 for cancelling break down cover I never knew I had! I won’t be using TESCO CAR insurance again, even if they do come up the cheapest... rip off!!

If you take out a insurance policy and go over your mileage you claimed they will cancel your policy. I took out a policy of 6000 miles and changed jobs half way threw my policy so I would be doing around 10000 miles a year. They refused to change my policy after speaking to them and cancelled it. I would definitely avoid this car insurance!!!!

Tesco Box Insurance - wouldn't ever shop with Tesco again for this reason. Took out a 6000 mile policy and have been paying for Top up miles as job circumstances changed and needed to drive more miles... worked out how much I've paid totalling £2,300!!! Rang to cancel and for a refund of the 6 months cover I haven't used and Tesco claim I've paid for my 6000 miles policy and as gone over I'm not due any refund. So in total I've paid £2,300 for 6 months car insurance!!!! Absolute scam. Do NOT get Tesco Box Insurance.

Started a new policy with Tesco in May 18. Brilliant price, I had just acquired my 1 years no claim and the price they offered was half what I was paying previously and 1/4 cheaper than all the other providers.
8 hours into my new policy.... I crashed... All my fault, I was terrified of calling them, I could only imagine what they would be thinking..... 8 HOURS!!!
I couldn't have been more wrong!!! They were amazing, cannot even begin to explain how fabulous they were! Their first question was, are you OK?! I profusely apologised for the whole situation and was told to not give it a second thought, that was what they were there for. My car had minimal damage but they insisted on it being repaired straight away and had me a courtesy car out that same day (my neighbour who I crashed into had insisted on dealing with his own insurance company as he wanted main dealer repair had a 2 week wait before his courtesy car came). They processed the claim so quickly and 2 days later they rang to check again that me and my children were OK following on from the incident. Even when my car was being repaired and I couldn't afford to pay the garage the excess (monthly wage), Tesco rang them and arranged that they would 'take their time' with the repair to give me extra time to get the money together. I had the courtesy car for 3 weeks!
My renewal is up in 3 months and I can't wait to renew again with Tesco.

falsifying mileage data, 0 communication. after an accident although they say 'inform us asap' blah this blah that. these idiots responded almost 2 weeks later and only because the other party had informed them about the accident threatening me that i had not informed them. never mind me their friggin customer who informed them via phone, live chat and even email on the day shortly after the incident. their response to this was as follows ' It was not until the call on 31 August 2016, as well as the complaint investigation, where your attempts to contact our Claims Department were found. Again, I can only apologise for this.' 5 complaints later they had not changed. Their so called managers could not answer simple questions . cancelled policy. then 2 years later when i've moved on with my life happy that i never have to dealt garbage like this ever again. i find out they have kept my account open without informing me and oh apparently i now owe them over 800 pounds. *sigh* 6th complaint. next stop fos.

Terrible service. After a car crash which wasn't my fault, the car went in for repair @ one of Tesco's approved garages. The worst garage I've ever come across... Ever! Car is deemed not safe to drive by the RAC & they tell me it's nothing to do with them anymore...? Engineer was rude, ignorant and patronising. I would urge anyone to think twice before taking out insurance with this disgusting company. They are lovely whilst taking your money, but when it comes to them helping you... It's a different story.

I was 21 when I took out insurance with Tesco from recommendation. A year on, I have had no problems whatsoever with them, it has felt as if I didn’t have a black box at all. I received a score from 80-100 each month and when it came to renewing, it was £1000 cheaper than what I paid before. No curfews, and you don’t get punished if you accidentally go a lot over the speed limit.. as long as you realise and bring it back down. Can’t fault it, very pleased.
