The service from Charlie was excellent, very efficient and made sure the details of my 3 changes were correct. New policy documents arrived very quickly – 5 star service. I gave 4 stars because I thought the £50 admin charge was a bit steep

Absolute horror of a company. For some reason had to verify details from online quote (never had to before) on a phone call during my working hours. I asked them to call back after 3pm, they agreed. The next morning I received an email …

Never go with this broker!!. I’ve been driving for over 25 years and never been requested by any insurer in the past for a picture of my car in the garage and need to install a tracking device. These conditions weren’t obvious when I bought …

I contacted the company with a question about their quote on an online comparison site. The lady I spoke to was very helpful and professional. She answered my query and then found an alternative policy which suited my needs better and was actually lower in cost than the original quote. Excellent service all round. Thankyou.

Online quote, forms were straightforward and easy enough to fill out. I was drawn by the promise of cheap quotes. I was presented with one quote of £904 with an excess of £400!! Probably the most expensive quote I’ve had since I passed 15 years ago. Not worth the effort.

A great experience!. I was able to insure both my wife’s and my car easily at very competitive quotes. Vicky was very friendly and helpful, taking time to add the best and most relevant features for each policy.

Had a quote online, price wise it was the best on Go Compare.
I called Performance Direct and purchased it over the telephone with Vicky. She is polite, knowledgeable and professional. Within minutes I was able to jump on my new bike and ride insured. She is a star.

Tried for two days to contact this company on the phone to ammend my policy. Never answer the phone. Tried whattsapp that was an absolute joke as well. What is the point of being with an insurance company you cant contact.
Especially with something as important as car insurance.

Shocking company, charge you
obscene amounts of money to change anything on your policy (£50 each time) and insane money to cancel insurance because they couldn’t insure my new car. You wait an age for them to answer the phone and their chat page no one answers. STAY CLEAR!

Avoid at all costs. Take your money, then look for reasons to cancel your policy, with no refund. Avoid like the plague! Use Google maps to verify where or if you have a garage. (how proffessional) and call you a liar if you tick a wrong box. Insurance company, were more professional and decent, than this rag tag mob.

This is worst insurance company I’ve ever been with. Customer service is a joke when you eventually get through to them. The staff on the chat line were not very helpful at all. I’ve had to cancel my policy and go elsewhere. Best part of it they charge a £55 admin fee even though it was all done online. A complete joke.

Absolutely abysmal company, provide a cheap quote on comparison sites and then call you to try and swindle more money out of you. Customer service is non-existent. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Performancedirect is grove and dean insurance. Every employee says something different, one says need a proof of picture, other says just to confirm details, third one says all okey but cannot confirm insurance because they have special validation(scam) team.

Do not go with this insurance company, they are a scam. They take deposit and cancel your insurance for no valid reasons. They harass you for minor information such as mileage when this information is easily accessible online.

Had to make one small change so did a chat first and then confirmed by phone when we had to make a small admin payment. Performance Direct are best contacted directly – we used a comparison site in the past and the verification process was laborious – and not needed as it was a renewal! Very simple process and a good price again.

Difficult to deal with. Difficult to contact. Everything online – when everything sorted (so you think) you find they have cancelled the policy as they want a document they hadnt previously asked for. There are FAR better companies out there that will be cheaper and easier to deal with.
