Warranty Direct Review
Warranty Direct are arguably responsible for creating the direct-to-consumer car warranty market. They are endorsed by What Car? and the Telegraph, and many others.
Their products are insurance warranties, underwritten by Cardif Pinnacle or by Jubiliee insurance at Lloyd's of London.
At the time of writing, they are the warranty that most Warranty Expert customers opt for, once they have compared the level of cover and the prices.
But, that does not mean they are the right choice for everyone. For older cars, higher mileage cars, cars of low value, or for motorists looking just for 'worst case' cover, other warranties reviewed on this site are often the right choice.
Warranty Direct's main strengths are that they cover wear and tear, have generous hire car cover, hotel and travel allowances, they cover timing belts and will pay very high labour rates, which allow you to use even the most expensive main dealers.
Another strength is that they will offer discounts if you ask for them, and will tailor the cover to certain extent, which removes some of their products' weaknesses.
The weaknsses are excess, betterment and an exclusion period at the start of the policy. You can increase your premium to remove these issues however, which then gives you a very comprehensive and useable policy.
