  1. Please can anybody advise. Exactly 12 months ago my son was involved in a car accident. He was driving with his girlfriend when two girls in a car behind him threw something at his car (he didn't realise at the time just heard an almighty bang). He braked and the girls went into the back of him. Apparently it was a can of coke they threw. Very little damaged to his car but apparently their car was a write off. The police came and both drivers were drink/drug tested unfortunately my son failed drug test (cannabis) although he had not smoked that day. Rightly he w
  2. Hello group, I have had a letter from debt and revenue services saying they will visit my property ( i'm not unduly concerned as I dont live there ) However this is for a supposed debt of an auto renewal house insurance of £50 which they have now pushed up to over a £100 with their terms and conditions : I had previously told Admiral last year that I did not wish for them to continue after 12 months and cancelled my DD so they couldn't take it ( they tried) and I insured with another company. My question is ...does this situation go on and on ? are these idle threats? does Admiral seri
  3. Hi all, I'm hoping someone can advise, back in October I applied for a loan through Admiral but the application was unsuccessful. My credit score (i use Clearscore) went down this month with a note saying: What changed in July 2018 : Hard Search performed by Admiral Loans for Credit Application The October application is showing the exact same information - why would they simply perform another hard search without my consent? and is there anything i can do about it? Thank you H x
  4. I'm seeking some advice... Cutting long story short - a couple of years ago someone else (my partner) was driving my car (with my permission) with me as a passenger. Partner had a fully comp insurance and wrongly thought it contained a third party insurance on my car (i accept it was a very stupid mistake, and we have learnt a lesson to check all details on insurance big time!). Partner was not listed on my policy. My vehicle was involved in a minor collision with another vehicle while being driven by my partner. No visible damage to either of the cars and third p
  5. My friend had a black box fitted through Admiral. He had 10/10 scores throughout. He went to cricket and the car was parked up. He got a score of -10 as they said he drove 13 hours straight no breaks and that is dangerous. They also said he drove at 130mph which he didn't. Why would he when he knows there is a black box fitted and only got 10 out of 10 scores. He tried to speak to them but was simply told. The black box doesn't make mistakes. They cancelled his insurance and banned him from the insurance company and anyone under their brand. His insurance shot up and he needed to t
  6. Hi, This is a frustrating situation and time is pretty limited so hopefully someone may be able to help. Lol due to the fact that i'm the family banker this post is on behalf of my partner last year our daughter acquired some equipment and used Admiral Leasing, (my partner was the guarantor). The equipment was not proving to make the profit that was required and our daughter contacted Admiral Leasing, explained that she could not afford to keep up the repayments and asked for a solution. She was informed that they would collect the machine and it would be resold. She w
  7. Hey all, Looks like this forum is the answer to all my problems.To be honest would like to thanks dx100 uk & Martin 2006 for all their support in answering all the queries posted.This forum certainly points you in the right direction. So to begin with Admiral insurance i received the renewals pack for my multi car insurance ,the price they quoted me looked too high,so like usual i rang them to check if it was their best quote, i told them i got a quote elsewere which was 2200 ,my quote was 2500 ,so the gentlemen applied some discounts and quoted me a little above 2200 (wish i had
  8. My Car was damaged in March by a 3rd party while parked. Car was booked into repair Insurer cancelled the repairs for more investigations (they wanted it checked by a specialist engineer) Time moves on, and we end up in July. My car is involved in another accident, and is written off. The original repair is then scheduled and I say I don't need it any longer and want the claim settled in cash Original claim is against Admiral, while mine is underwritten by Markerstudy Second claim was my fault, and it was valued at roughly what I'd expect for the state it was
  9. Had an existing policy with Admiral for my 2001 VW Golf. Sold it and purchased a 2007 VW Golf newer model but same engine size. Still have 2 months of existing policy to run so contacted them to give new details and was told that there would be an additional premium to pay of £83 plus an admin charge of £19.50 ? When I asked why the increase, I was told that it was due to the fact that it was a new car and that I was not use to driving it ? Now I have been driving for more than 30+ years, have a clean license and 21+ years no claims. I decided to pay the extra premium as I
  10. Dear all My car was involved in an accident whilst in parking position in a car park, a delivery lorry took the front bumper of my car. Bless him the lorry driver left me a message on the front window apologising and he already opened a case through his company, I spoke to the third parties insurer and I called the audi garage where I bought the car from They wee quite helpful and they involved accident exchange. Immediately I received a phone call and we arranged the car to be taken to the garage and I was given a courtesy car. They have done everything perfectly and I was quite
  11. Hi All I have car insurance with admiral and pay it monthly by direct debit. I received a default letter from Admiral this morning stating that they had communicated with me last month and that i have ignored this communication, so am in breach of my credit agreement and require full payment. I called their customer service and was advised that both an email and hard copy letter were sent to me the previous month stating the bank had rejected their direct debit. i advised them that i had not received either the email ( which i keep all of) or letter, the customer service rep basic
  12. greetings, i have a problem with admiral i took out a policy on december 2012, i was told i had 90 days insurance abroad and after this i would have to ring them to arrange cover on a monthly basis, after the 90 days i rang them and arranged 1 month and was told they would take it out automatically after this, also they took the money out from spain which i find suspicious avoiding taxes ect. at 150 days into it or 5 months i put the car on the drive, and used a different car, but then a woman decides to crash into my car, i rang my insurance to tell them w
  13. Let's keep it simple! Do not use Admiral Van Hire in Walsall. You have been warned!
  14. Hi all Here is a bit of background as to the problem I am facing. Someone recently reversed into my car which was parked in a pay and display car park in a town centre. Luckily (?) for me, he left a note on my windscreen and has admitted full responsibility. He's given me all of his details and even reported said incident to the police. I've made my claim and am currently waiting for my insurance company (Admiral insurance) to contact me re getting my car picked up and repaired / loan car issued etc. I have 14 years NCD which is protected and when I was speaking to the gu
  15. Hi there. I renewed my car Insurance in March, I was origionally with Admiral in the first place however as a named driver as the car did not belong to me it belonged to my mother, and she drove it more. I applied for Insurance on my own car In March when the previous expired, with Admiral again as we were quoted just under £1000, which I paid in full. However, four months on and they are asking for over £400 more, as they have 'got my details wrong', I on the other hand know that my details are completely correct... And I am incredibly worried about paying this extra £400.. as they were
  16. I was insured with Admiral (car) for the last two years. This year, as last, my renewal notice came through and it was ridiculous, so I shopped around. The notice told me that payment was due on the 30th of June, which is when my current policy would end. I found eSure undercut them by around 50% so set up my new policy with them on the 23rd, rang Admiral and told them not to renew. This they acceded to, and I downloaded and sent my No Claims proof to eSure. All fine. Until I check my bank balance on the 29th (tonight) and notice that I'm a bit short. £620.10 short, to be precise, du
  17. Hi everyone. I was a bit stunned by a demand from Admiral Insurance this morning demanding a cancellation fee of 65.00. I did not cancel, they did. I wanted to add an item, as named item with a value of 4K to my contents policy. It was accepted for about 14.00 but was referred to underwriter. I then got a call telling me the underwriter would not cover the change, a new policy was offered @ over 340.00 compared to the 114.00 I had paid up front. I refused this, said I would not insure the item and wait for the policy end, about 2 months. I was then told that this was
  18. Hello fellow proletariat, With my car insurance almost up for renewal (14th) i decided to use a comparison site and switch if i could find one cheaper which i did (substantially cheaper). I called admiral today to let them know of my intention to switch providers, the lady on the other end offered to run a quote to see if she could get near the other providers price, i allowed her the curtsey of doing so as she was polite. She asked me a bunch of usual question to run the quote, one being do you have any fixed penalties to which i answered "only the one you know about" she said
  19. Pretty shocking,when it was the Insurance companies themselves who were bleating about referral fees adding to the costs of increased premiums. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/news/article-2268765/Admiral-risks-fury-law-firm-tie-save-accident-fee-deals.html
  20. Hello, June last year I had a total loss right off involving no other parties. The vehicle was valued at £265 and the excess was £250. I contacted Admiral who processed the claim within 24 hrs. Obviously nothing ventured nothing gained or lost. Several weeks later I received a new certificate of insurance and policy documents for my old right off and a letter saying I owed them a premium of £620. When I referred to my exisiting documents I found that they had all expired in April 2012 including my certificate of insurance. My policy had been automatically renewed but no paperwork had be
  21. Hi all my daughter needed car insurance and rang admiral for a quote ...Being 17 and a new driver it was very high, She was asked how many vehicles inthe family , and was told about a multi-car policy where she would receive adiscount as other members of the family joined the multi-car policy….At this point I took over the phone call and asked for annual quotes for my wife’s and my car and was given competitive quotes roughly the same as we currently payfor 12 months cover, The sales person explained that as our current policy’s expired we would have to renew with them at the pre-arrange
  22. Hi does anyone know anything about multicar policies? My son asked me to join a multicar policy with him to make his car insurance cheaper as he is 25 + his insurance is usually about £1000/£1200 per year which he pays in monthly instalments. My insurance is £230 per year full comp which I pay on a one off payment. I said to my son Martin that I didn't really want to be bothered with all the hastle as I was happy with my insurance company deal + paying my years priemiums up front but I told him when my insurance was due for renewal which wasn't for another 6 months or so. When my
  23. Hi All, I've been directed here by a good friend. I am having an issue with Admiral Car insurance and am hoping you all can advise me on what to do. A couple of years ago I had just started a new job and got given a company van. In my first week I was pulled over by police when going into Clacket Lane services as they were doing spot checks and told me I had two illegal tyres. They only fined me for one but also gave me penalty points for it as well. Because I was a bit naive I didn't think I had to say that I had points on my licence because of a work van I didnt declare them.
  24. Hi, I had a policy with Admiral at the beggining of last year. I was with them for a couple of months when someone crashed into my parked car. My car was only worth £200 so it was an instant write off. The person who crashed into said they would pay me what the car is worth. I called Admiral and told them what had happened. I explained it was undrivable and it was a write off so I would not be needing the insurance anymore. They said as I was cancelling early I would need to pay one months payment which was £80 and then the policy would be cancelled. After the next months paymen
