We are sorry that you have decided not to reinsure with us again this year. If you would like to see what price we are able offer then you can do so by completing a quote on our website. Alternatively, if you would still like to receive proof of your no claims bonus then we can arrange for this to be emailed to you.

I’m planning to take my vehicle abroad, do I need to do anything?
Rest assured all our policies cover all European Union countries, Andorra, Gibraltar, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland for any trip that does not exceed 183 days (6 months) in any policy period. You will just need to take your policy documents with you to confirm cover whilst you are away.
Should you be travelling to any countries that are not listed above then you will need to arrange alternative insurance as we would not be able to cover these.
How do I change my payment dates?
If you have selected to pay for your policy via monthly payments, you will be paying for your policy via our continuous payment authority. This type of payment is taken from your debit or credit card, rather than a direct debit which is set up using your account number or sort code. Therefore, if your card is cancelled or expires we would need your new card details to be updated with us.
Currently we are unable to change payment dates on your payment plan however, if you are struggling to make your payments please contact our Customer Service Team on: 01933 351 361.
