Diamond Car Insurance Review – Forbes Advisor UK


Who are the Diamonds?

Diamond is part of the Admiral group, alongside Elephant, Bell and, of course, Admiral. It was founded in 1997 as an insurer for female drivers.

It still gears its products towards women but cannot offer women cheaper cover than men because insurers have been banned since 2012 from taking a driver’s gender into account when setting premiums.

How to find the best coverage for you

Hopefully, you’ll never need to make a claim on your auto insurance, but if you do, you’ll need an insurer that handles claims quickly, efficiently, and fairly.

The best way to get an idea of ​​how an insurer treats its customers is to check out independent review sites such as Defaqto and TrustPilot.

Cost is also important, but only relative to the amount of coverage you get in return. A cheap policy can be attractive, but if it lacks features you’ll need later and you’re forced to pay for it yourself, it’s not as cheap as it looks.

Likewise, a more expensive font with lots of features that you never use might not be the best use of your money. Balancing cost and coverage is key, and a price comparison service like ours can help.

Why it makes sense to compare policies and providers

The rising cost of living makes it more important than ever to make sure you’re not paying too much for car insurance.

Car insurance companies are no longer able to offer better prices to new customers due to regulations introduced this year, but it’s still worth looking for better deals.

You can’t assume your current provider will give you the best price on renewal, so it makes sense to check.
