Hastings Direct Car Insurance Reviews
Received cashback but took too long to receive money
  flanakj | 24 Jun 2015 Report Abuse
Took over 6 months to payout but got there in the end.

Still waiting payment...3 Months, it's tracked but not going any further. Great offer it's just a shame it takes so long to payout

Will not allow me to complete my transaction online! quote all ok, price good, click on complete and a pop up box appears telling me I have to call them to complete the purchase - which will result in no cash back if I do.

  Hi there, I do apologise that this occurred for you, I can confirm though that in these instances, if you proceed to call Hastings but are sure to let them know your quote reference, you should still see your transaction go on to track for you. Our Customer Care Team are always on hand to be of assistance should you have any questions regarding this though. Best wishes, TopCashback

Purchased in may. Didn't track. Submitted cashback claim in june and still nothing!

  Hi there, I am sorry to hear that this has still not been resolved for you, we do need to have received a resolution from the retailer before we are able to pass the cashback on to yourself, but hopefully, it is not too much longer until we are able to get back to you with a resolution. Best wishes, TopCashback

The insurance itself was great value and gave a considerable discount over other providers offering an equal policy. However, the cashback is incredibly slow form this murchant - it has now been 3 months and is still only showing as confirmed.

I am still waiting for my cashback from hastings, taken out in mid april 2013, 4 months on, nothing? not impressed at all.

Been waiting since may 2012 looks like there will be no cashback from this merchant, very dissapointed would have went with different insurer had I known :(

Was a very competitive quote - could not find cheaper through comparison websites, however am still waiting, 5 months later, for cashback. Purchase tracked etc v quickly but the payable date is still more than a month away. Unnecessarily lengthy process in my opinion, but they do say you shouldn't look gift horses bearing free cashback in the mouth...

Cashback was only received after submitting a missing cashback claim and it took almost a year to receive the credit on my tcb account. Cb received just before the policy was due to renew...Very convenient!

Expect a long wait for your cash back, probably some emails, and nudges. Took out car insurance with hastings, paid in full, last march 11 just got a settlement from top cash back today feb 12, cant thank tcb enough. Tracking worked quickly with merchant but just went to payable with a £0. Waited over 3 months as stated in terms and conditions (found out that it was over 100 days which is another problem and requires more emails). Contacted tcb in july who forwarded claim to merchant, 2 nudges later and 1/2 a year £55. Thanks tcb

A bit misleading, they say you cant use saved quotes for cashback however when you go to their site the new quote and retrieve quote buttons are both within the topcashback banner, bit naughty that is!
  Richcheshire | 17 Feb 2012 Report Abuse
26/11/2011 - Bit miffed about hastings - after spending an hour going through all their forms the payment page didnt work correctly so I ended up having to call them and go through all the same details again and by the time all the data was re-entered the premium had risen £15 (in 30 mins?)!!! be warned even if you opt for ncb protection your quote will take it off and you have to re-add it - think they do that to keep the premium as low as possible. Will be interesting to see if they honour the cashback :(

Tracked quickly but wont be confirmed for months.
  Mrs_Smythe | 25 Nov 2011 Report Abuse
This company seem to delay payment longer than I would have expected. I took out a policy in sept & believe I have to wait for four months for it to be confirmed. I understand why but possibly needs reviewing.
  Minxi58 | 03 Nov 2011 Report Abuse
Ater I had purchased my car insurance from hastings, I was informed 2 months later that I needed to provide evidence of my no claims bonus. I had destroyed my previous documents and therefore had no evidence to provide.
  sairplows | 15 Oct 2011 Report Abuse
Didnt track so had to submit manual claim. After 7 months and a nudge a month finally got the full amount. Top cashback were great though keeping me informed of what was happening.
  summerthyme | 20 Jun 2011 Report Abuse
It took over a year for cash back. Never needed to claim from them so don't know what they were like. Ok I guess
  rebecca_80 | 11 Jun 2011 Report Abuse
Did 2 car insurance policies - one in april 2010 and 1 in may 2010 - cashback offered for each one was £58 - the may one tracked and paid up but the 1st one never tracked at all and it took a whole year - all but 2 weeks - to get tcb to pay me- numerous nudges and comments to which few got replies - but eventually after persistance I finally got paid out a week ago - now im about to do the 2 cars again and hastings come up cheaper - not sure whether to use em again though.

Still waiting for payment three months after taking up policy.
  iainrushin | 25 Mar 2011 Report Abuse
I have been plagued by 'cold calls' from this company!
  blaidd | 24 Nov 2010 Report Abuse
Tracked quickly, just have to wait now
  GoldenMoneySaver | 23 Nov 2010 Report Abuse
Not the cheapest I could get, but very near, good cashback just hope they pay up.
  Pumas | 21 Nov 2010 Report Abuse
Tracked very quickly at £53 but shows as payable at the end of february. Had to phone them to change an item on my policy - took ages to get through (even for an insurance company !). However, the service was very efficient when I eventually got to speak to someone.
