stuart anderson was just awesome! Most of my life I've been taking insurence advice from an annoying meerkat or similar! What a costly mistake that was. To put it simply: Footman james service is so unbelievable, you'd think you are being pranked! you will ask them, are you sure? have u got my details right? so this quote is for annual cover and NOT monthly? Seriously tell me what the catch is? what do you mean there is no catch? And finally.....Why have I just discovered you?!
one last thing!...I would happily stick Footman James banner on my car, informing fellow motorists that they are a victim of legalised theft if they choose other insurers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Staff are very friendly, polite and professional, going out of their way to try to help. In the past it was always very difficult to get through on the telephone and you could be on hold for long periods of time. This problem appears to have been rectified which makes a huge difference.

Very pleased, excellent customer service, great to talk to someone and actually feel like I was talking to a friend. It was very professional yet casual, what customer service should be... Not sales focused.
