Debenhams Car Insurance @ www.debenhamscarinsurance.co.uk

Debenhams Car InsuranceDebenhams is one of the UK’’s most recognisable high street brands. They have a rich history dating back to 1778 and have today become a true global force, trading from 240 stores across 27 countries. As the case with many leading retailers the switch to the financial sectors was a natural step forward. This began in 2005 through the introduction of Debenhams Personal Finance. It is the Debenhams car insurance that we’ll be looking at here that is promoted through www.debenhamscarinsurance.co.uk. Unless you have spotted an advert in Google, you may have been guided here when making a search on one of the top comparison sites. This cover is arranged and administered by Eldon Insurance Services Ltd.

There are several underwriters used that are each noted within the policy documents page. Those referenced are Ageas, Aviva, AXA, Covea, LV (as ABC and Highway) and Southern Rock. XS Direct was also listed, but they are a broker with the underwriting coming from Calpe and Pinnacle. There is a 5 star Defaqto badge displayed. It is worth noting that 5 stars is only awarded when either Aviva or AXA is used. Highway for instance is 3 starred. The main listed features include a courtesy car (comprehensive), European cover for 90 days and medical expenses up to £100. There are lots of optional extras on things such as legal expenses, key care, RAC breakdown cover etc.

Both comparison and Google searches do point users to www.debenhamscarinsurance.co.uk. This product is also promoted on the finance subdomain of Debenhams.com. On that side they note a £50 gift card and cardholders save 10% on their premium. We believe that these may be included, but it is strange that they don’t promote them here (we have sent an email asking about this). There is no login added with changes and queries being directed to their support team. The phone number for this is 0344 840 6305 that is live between Monday and Thursday (9am to 8pm), Friday (9am to 7pm) and Saturday (9am to 4pm). You can expect to find their competitive quotes on Compare the Market and Confused.
