Hi all,

Not been on here before so apologies if been discussed before.

Last week we scrapped an old car that we used for taking the dogs to the common for walks. It was dying and beyond repair but was insured until the end of December.

We have just called the Insurance Company to let them know it was scrapped, possibly hoping for a refund for the next 6 weeks, only to be told that it would be 45 to cancel the policy. So, bit shocked, we said 'well, we'll just keep the policy, that we'd paid up front for a year, until it expires'.

'You can't do that now' it's company policy. 'If you don't pay we'll take you to court'.

'But if we hadn't told you, you would never of known. We were just being honest', we replied. 'Sorry, company policy'.

We spoke to a Manager, same response. Money grabbing  :censored:.


Thanks for letting me get that off my chest and any ideas appreciated.

Cheers weave  :beers:

I feel like going down to the South Coast and sticking one in their eye if that gives you a clue to who they are. (Not sure if you can mention names on here).

Hi all,

Just to say that the Battle of Hastings is over. Credit where credit's due, they backed down and waved the cancellation fee as a gesture of goodwill but lots of phone calls to get there. Must read small print more often, although I know I won't.

Cheers weave.

Glad you got a result in the end, Weave. To my mind that should never have happened in the first place, though :unimpressed:

I love that phrase that companies come out with - "a gesture of goodwill". It implies that they are doing you a huge favour and yes,the small print probably does say that they were in the right all the time, but being 'in the right', does not make it right! Glad it was sorted Weave.
I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
