    They truly are bottom feeders. They'll entice customers in by showing them the cheapest quotes on the market. Ask for a little change or a cancellation, and they'll make their monies worth with hidden fees and disgusting tactics.

    Does anyone know how early they take payment for auto renewal? My policy runs till middle of may, but today I had an ominous text from them saying "thanks for choosing goskippy, we have some fantastic rates on our home insurance ..."

    I also had a missed call from a bolton number 01204 232 022 5 mins prior. The number is constantly engaged.

    By choosing, I hope they are not referring to auto renewal!

    Just renewed my car insurance the last week. Got quotes off the usual compare sites, GoSkippy and their other bottom feeding pals, A-Choice, where some of the cheapest quotes. Needless to say I skipped past them.

    Go Skippy cancelled my policy for no reason after a month. I had sent scans of all requested documents to them in an email but they denied receiving them!!

    The google reviews of their parent company Eldon Insurance are eye opening 28 reviews, all being 1 star apart from one giving 5 stars which appears it may be from a former employee.

    I'm refering to Go Skippy

    Everytime I look for insurance these shitty unknown companies always come up first. I now always skip past them and go for a known company.

    Hi
    I've been with the company for 2 years, thank God nothing happened whilst with them.
    I have recently changed my address within the same area, I was billed 76.40 for change of address, when I enquired about the charge, I got different explanations from higher risk, parking and area .The last person told me the underwriter made the rules, I submitted forms online to challenge the charge and I never received any communication, they denied my communication with them

    They are a bunch of unorganized people who cannot give explanations about their own policies. I initially thought I got a new advisor initially but it got worse as days went by, they ended up cancelling my policy with no explanation and charging me more on top of that.

    I need the authority that can fight my case because they need to put their house in order.
