  1. Hi Ads_uk, Your concerns have been noted and raised to the customer relations team to look into for you. They will acknowledge your complaint within five working days with more information and your reference number. Regards, joe
  2. Hi, Hopefully you're happier now with the outcome, I sincerely apologise for the error made in choosing void rather than cancellation. If you're not happy to consider the issue resolved, do let me know. Also, I'd like to ask that you please edit out our colleague's name from post #6 for her security. Thanks, Joe
  3. Hi, Thank you for taking the time to post your experience here, I'm very sorry you're not happy with it. I'd like to do what I can to help you so if you can email this post and your policy details to help@hastingsdirect.com I can then assist further ~Joe
  4. Hi Starance, Thanks for getting in touch. When you choose to repay the cost of your premium by monthly instalments you do agree to the interest charge which is added to the total and spread among the payments. If you went to pay more or even all at anytime this will, in turn, reduce the amount of interest you will pay, too. I hope this helps clarify ~Joe
  5. Hi, Sorry to see you've incurred a charge. We display free numbers to call however on occasion old ones may be found so our complaint team will investigate for you and offer an outcome. I'm sure we can arrange a suitable resolution for you ~Joe
  6. Hi Moonlandings, If you would like us to review your issue and have not spoken to our claims customer service team yet then please can you email help@hastingsdirect.com and be sure to include your full name, DoB and policy of claim number Many thanks, Joe
  7. Hi Pete, Thanks very much for letting us know about your issue, we would certainly like to learn more about it and see if there is an amicable resolution we can arrange. The first thing I'd like to do is find your policy details so if you want to email me at help@hastingsdirect.com please can you provide your full name, DoB and registration or policy number? I can then respond once I've looked into it for you. Kind regards, Joe
  8. Hi Izzy, I'm sorry to see that you're unhappy with our fee and the additional premium to change the address, our customer relations team will be able to provide an investigation into your concerns and determine the quality of the service you received when asking for a cancellation quote as well. While we make every effort to ensure our fees are clear, straightforward and accepted before sale I appreciate that we can only tell you if there is an additional or return of premium at the time of the change. Thank you for letting us know about your experience, it's very useful for us to learn d
  9. Hi Deee I can see that we attempted to call you yesterday, however we were unable to reach you. As we couldn’t speak with you directly, we sent you an email detailing our understanding of the situation and offered for you to get back in touch should you need anything further. When looking into the communication you have had with Hastings Direct, I cannot see that we’ve informed you that your vehicle is not repairable. I also cannot see that we have instructed Albany to take your vehicle to the two garages named in your complaint or made any promises concerning a courtesy vehicle. We
  10. Hi, Sorry to see you have had these problems during your claim. I’d be happy to look into this further for you if you could message me your DOB/Name/Claim ref to Help@Hastingsdirect.com Kind regards, Tash
  11. Hi Andy, Can you confirm that post #5 in this thread is viewable to all please? Kind regards, Joe
  12. Hi, Thanks for getting touch and posting your experience, I'm sorry that you're not happy with the additional premium. As you've had explained already, each insurer has trusted research which determines a postcode's risk rating and will take this into account when deciding to apply a charge or not. Some insurers will absorb the cost or ignore the data and others will adjust the premium accordingly to ensure that a potential future claim has been appropriately covered. If you have received a final response letter from the customer relations team and are still unhappy, the letter also gives
  13. Hi, Thank you for finding the time to write this. When taking out a policy with us you're able to enter how many no claims years that you have to entitle you to a discount on the premium. It's not that we cut your no claims discount years down to 9, it's just that we accept no more than 9 years as we see 9 years being the maximum amount of discount that we apply to any policy with ourselves. This is why 9 years is stated on your documents as it's 9 years of your no claims discount that is being used to generate a discount for yourself. As long as we have receiv
  14. Hi there, I'm sorry to hear that your motorcycle has been stolen. We would be more than happy to investigate this for you. Feel free to send us an email to help@hastingsdirect.com. Kind regards, Jaz
  15. Hi Yukiko, Sorry to hear that you've had issues with getting the letter from Churchill but I'm sure I can help. As mentioned, the renewal invitations often have a page where the year-ending NCD is declared and since it's on Churchill headed paper, we can usually accept that. If you have it, go ahead and email it over to me at help@hastingsdirect.com and I can either pass it to the team for you or explain what more I might need. This should be fine, if you need anything else just let me know. Regards, Joe
  16. Hi Onum, Thanks for the post - you're likely to see us appear on a statement as Hastings Insurance or Hastings Direct, depending on a few factors. Hope this helps, Joe
  17. Hi Gazzoouk, Thanks for sharing your experience, I've read your post with interest. With the policyholder's consent, we will instruct one firm who we have a business agreement with and explain who it is on a call with him or her. That firm may contact you to handle a potential injury claim, however the policyholder would normally make any passengers aware. We will not sell or pass information to any other firm. If you do feel you the firm who called you misrepresented that we had instructed them, you may log an official complaint first with them. They will provide a response and if
  18. Hi meg&mog, Thank you for taking the time to share your story here. I am sorry to hear that this process has not been as straight forward as it should have been. Can you please send me an email with the policy details so that I can speak to the Smartmiles team and help to get this situation resolved? help@hastingsdirect.com Kind regards, Jamie
  19. Hi Zoltron, Thank you for your post, while I'm disappointed that you chose another insurer, I am glad that you were able to make an informed decision based on our published info about what you might be charged. In order to give our customers more freedom and transparency, we made the decision to split admin fees from the premium. Now we can offer extremely competitive rates and also apply fees only where necessary so the fairness and value to our customers is better than ever. Just so you know, our fees are not for profit and are there to help recover our own costs in performing adm
  20. Hi, Would you be able to email your contact number to help@hastingsdirect.com so I can ensure that it's correct on our system please? Sorry for the typo, I've edited my signature as well. Regards, Joe
  21. Hi Nicola, Thanks for posting, I was able to forward it to the Smartmiles team to have a look at. They wanted to call you and speak to you personally but couldn't reach you. We did leave a message though so you can give them a ring when convenient and hopefully we can arrange an amicable outcome. Kind regards, Joe (edited for name typo)
  22. Hi, I'm really sorry that I can't answer that for you, however you can speak to the team anytime it's convenient for you - there's a number, email form and opening hours here: https://www.hastingsdirectsmartmiles.com/contact I hope this helps, Joe

It's not completely clear from reading the conversation exactly what the circumstances are however.
