5 reasons why some insurers charge you more than you think
Read about the top 5 hidden extras that can bump up your premiums.
With some car insurance, the price quoted is rarely what you actually pay. Here are the top 5 hidden extras that can bump up your premiums - and we're proud to say we won't charge you for any of them.
If you're using price comparison websites, always make sure you check what you're paying for, as the price quoted initially doesn't always tell the full story:
1. Charging you extra because you want to pay in monthly instalments
This one can make a significant difference to the price you pay. Some insurers will charge you as much as 26.9% on top of the price you've been quoted, just because you'd rather pay for your car insurance in monthly instalments. Our car insurance = no charge.
2. Charging you a fee just for setting up your policy
With some insurers, there's an additional admin charge to pay, which can be up to almost £30, just for setting up your new policy. Our car insurance = no charge.
3. Charging you to make changes to your policy
Some insurers charge you up to £25, on top of the price quoted, if you need to make simple changes to your policy, such as changing your car or moving house. Our car insurance = no charge.
4. Charging you for duplicate policy documents
If you request duplicate documents from some insurers, they could charge you an admin fee of up to £25 just for sending them out to you. Our car insurance = no charge.
5. Charging you for cancelling your policy
If you decide to cancel your policy for whatever reason, some insurers will charge you as much as £50. Our car insurance = no charge.
