I was unable to use the online facility to pay my car insurance because it would not recognise my policy reference although correct. The person I subsequently spake to dealt with my reinsurance speedily, but as there were no changes to my quote it should have been possible to deal with the matter on line.

Very happy with service I received. Promptly returned my call for a new quote and my heavily modified sportscar was insured at the best price and cover, smashing the competition. Polite and efficient, the whole process was completed promptly.

I've always had excellent service from Footman James. I only wish you would offer competitive rates for one of my classic Land Rovers which has had a diesel engine fitted. Although this is a slightly larger engine size, it is much less powerful than the original petrol one. Otherwise a great company.

Having to go through the complete set of policy information wrt driver, car and history plus being read the legal stuff every time I contacted you becomes wearing. If you have all my information a simple "has anything changed " would suffice. I suspect keeping me on the phone helps you recoup some cost through phones charges on me.
