Disadvantages: none... yet
bieng a young driver the renewal period is a pain in the back end, i have 3 years no clams and currntly drive a group 8 car and have no points on my licence yet my premiums are still around the £700 mark.
last year with 2 years no claims i did my usual comparethemarket.com search (other price comparison sites are available :) swinton were only the second cheapest even after i recieved my £70 cashback but it was worth it.
they have a local office near my home town, i can speak to someone in that town that knows exactly what they are talking about. theres no passing you about over the phone and you never hear "oh... thats not my department, ill just put you through..." swinton are friendly, helpful and honest people, i got the price that they promised with no rubbish on the side.
granted my premium was still over £1000 it was far cheaper than the likes of quinn direct (who also have great customer service). but the point is with swinton i have never had any problems, when i moved house my details changed and that was that, no palava. they did the job and i was off the phone in less than 3 minutes. and if you need help and dont like phoning then they have brances all over the country which is extremely helpful.
unlike the time i was insured by zenith which was a 3rd party company of prestige which was rum by allen and allen group or something crazy... and also they are by far the worst insurance broker i have delt with and i wish they had a review page to tell you how much you should avoid them.
i even set up everything online and it took no more than 15 mins. i got no phone calls trying to persuade me to take out extra policies i didnt need, they just sent me out my bumf in the post which i had to sign and sent back and that was that.
ease of use web/phone etc = 10/10
Customer service = 9/10
premiums = variable depending on age/experience/points etc
overall = 9/10
Summary: great for young drivers, will update next year when my next premium comes through
