    Pros: Cheap, I guess you get what you pay for.
    Cons: Don't hit anyone and expect them to pay. You could be left on the hook.

    Pros: NONE.
    Cons: RUDE and obnoxious customer service. "Bait and Switch" quotes.

    Summary: My experience with Wananesa is so abhorrent that I felt compelled to write my first review about a company. Sure, their quotes seem really enticing at first, but it's an all too familiar "bait and switch" scheme which I am unfortunate enough to find out ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive and rates are not increased much.

    You will not get adequate compensation.

    Summary: Don't imagine for a minute that you really have coverage. They will try to find you at fault in order to avoid covering your damages or if they can not find fault the compensation is no more than half of what you will need to have your car repaired. ... read more

    Excellent pricing, great service, speedy claims and excellent payment plans

    Cons: NONE
