Your duty of disclosure
You’re required to take reasonable care not to make a misrepresentation to us and the insurer. This means that all the answers you provide and statements that you make as part of your application to obtain, manage, change and renew your insurance must be honest and accurate. If you’re found to have deliberately or carelessly misinformed us and the insurer(s), this could mean that part of or all of any claim may not be paid or your policy may be voided from inception.
How to cancel
Before deciding to cancel please contact us and ensure you’ve referred to your policy terms and conditions for more information on how the cancellation will be processed and what cooling off period applies.
When you cancel we will normally issue a pro-rata refund less any administrative cost both us and the insurer may apply. However this may not always be the case and you may not be eligible for a refund, for example, if a claim has occurred during the insurance period no refund of premium will be due on cancellation or your insurer doesn’t offer refunds for cancelled policies owing to low original premiums and the costs associated with administering a cancellation. More information on our administration charges can be found below.
We will issue a renewal notice within 30 days of your renewal date, we will always show you last years premium, including Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) so you can compare the renewal premium we're offering you vs what you paid last year.
Unless you've instructed us not to we will automatically renew your policy. If we cannot automatically renew your policy because payment cannot be taken then we'll contact you and ask you how you wish for us to proceed and if we hear nothing back we'll cancel the renewal.
Protecting your data
We take the privacy of your data seriously and as such all personal information about you will be treated as private and confidential (even when you are no longer a customer), except where the disclosure is made at your request or with your consent in relation to administering your insurance or where we are required by law.
Missed Monthly Payment
If you pay your policy monthly we reserve the right to request payment of the remainder of the annual insurance policy if a failed payment occurs. This ensures we are able to reduce the administrative burden and associated fees of failed/missed payments.
Incorrectly Challenged Payment
If you incorrectly challenged a payment via your bank/building society for your insurance premium or any cancellation/administration fees and those monies were returned to you and we have incurred fees from our payment provider we will ask you to contact your bank to advise them that the payment was correct. If you fail to do this within a reasonable timeframe and we've incurred fees from an incorrectly challenged payment we will deduct these costs from the card that we hold on file.
How to claim
Please refer to your policy summary or your policy document if you need to notify us of a claim. You should contact the claims administrator as soon as possible and as defined in the policy terms and conditions. Upon the claim being approved you will be required to pay the claim excess, this is payable directly to our Claims administrators, Direct Group.
Our administration fees simply cover the costs that we incur for administering changes and for collecting/returning payments where we incur a fee from our payment provider. Here are the details on fees:
Arrangement of new policies and renewals: £0
Policy alterations: Up to £5
Policy cancellation within the 14 day cooling off period (new business and renewal): £5
