“Shannon from compare the market was extremely helpful in helping me find the best private health insurance for me. She was super nice to talk with and has a beautiful way of making the whole experience pleasant. Give this girl a raise !!”
“Promised a discount when signing up on first years Premium - never applied it. Contacted Insurance company and they said it was for Compare the Market to apply, contacted Compare the Market and they said it was already applied. The way the discount is advertised is dodgy - it makes you think the discount is yet to come off the advertised price. In the end Compare the Market didnt save me money, it cost me money as I wouldnt have gone for the Policy I did. Clever business-wise though - must be why they have such a large TV advertising budget.....”
“was looking for car insurance, compared quite a few sites. and Compare The Market was the most expensive one. lots of questions, takes forever to provide all answers. and i found on Confused.com half of the price i was given on Comparethemarket. as a customer i am looking for good insurance package and best price, which did not find here”
“Its marketing offers a cute toy but it's not easy to understand how to get one. You take a policy out ask for advice and your told your ouf of time with a claim despite trying and failing to find out. We are taking days not weeks but no customer support or service. Awful marketing”
“The prices for car insurance where double the amount the tide is changing I got cheaper quotes going direct to insurance companies and it's annoying how it gives you the telematics quotes there should be a tab so you don't have to have them if you do a lot of miles it's not worth having this kind of insurance as you have to buy top up miles which can make you pay upto 3 times the amount of normal car insurance nobody knows how many miles they are going to do it's just a guess but this guess can cost you hundreds more”
“I was looking for second home insurance and Comparethemarket.com said they did that, but when I contacted the individual insurance companies they didn’t do second home insurance. It was a complete waste of time.”
“I went on this website and bought car insurance. During the process I declared a previous accident.
I ticked ALL the boxes to OPT OUT OF ALL COMMUNICATIONS, from Comapre the Market and their associated business partners.
Since then, I've been PLAGUED with phone calls relating to my previous accident (which was years ago, and all sorted).
The callers are VERY insistent, and get quite rude whe I say I'm not interested.
DON'T USE COMPARE THE MARKET. NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY, THEY WILL PASS ON YOUR DETAILS AND PEOPLE WILL CONTACT YOU (AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN... AD INFINITUM...)
When I'm done with this review, I'm going to report them to the Information Commisioner. You should too if you get the same problem.
No doubt, I'll now get the standard cut and paste response from Compare the Market.
Too late. You broke the rules. Especially as I'm registered with the Telephone Preferences Scheme to opt out of these stupid, annoying calls.”
“Always happy to look on this site for insurance and just to check how much insurance would be on a range of vehicles and house insurance. I know my details are secure and will always use and tell people to use this site for information.”
