Renewing your car insurance policy
About three weeks before the renewal date of your car insurance policy we’ll send you a renewal pack. This pack will contain details of how to renew the policy.
The pack will include a renewal invitation which will summarise:
- the cover and price of your policy
- details of the car insured
- who can drive the car
- details of any optional extras you’ve chosen
- schedule with details of your and any named drivers’ driving history
You should check this carefully as it’s the basis on which we’re offering to renew your policy.
Changes to details
If any details have changed it’s important that you tell us when you receive your renewal invitation as we’ll need to issue another quotation to reflect the changes.
Please check your details carefully when you receive the schedule and let us know if anything is incorrect or has changed.
You need to call us on0800 681 6272and tell us about any changes before your car insurance renews otherwise you may not be insured.
Level of cover
You should also take the opportunity to review the optional extras you have on your policy. Give one of our friendly UK-based people a call if you’d like to add any optional extras that you don’t have at the moment.
You might also want to review the amount of excess that applies to your policy, as increasing the excess can reduce your renewal quote.
If you have chosen to automatically renew, your policy will be renewed using your credit or debit card, or by monthly or annual direct debit. This means you don’t have to worry about forgetting to renew or run the risk of being uninsured. This will show on your renewal letter. If you’d prefer us not to renew your policy automatically, please let us know before your renewal date by calling us on 0800 633 5211.
And finally, please don’t leave it to the last minute! When you receive your renewal invitation you’ll have about three weeks before the policy needs to be renewed. If you don’t renew your insurance or make alternative arrangements, you won’t be insured, and it’s an offence to use a car without insurance.
