Oh dear, this won't end well .....

For my mondeo i just insure it the cheapest way possible, all i need is for it to be legal. If it gets bent then £700 worth of car is no great loss.

Having just gone from a 4 car family down to 3, A Plan the insurer on the TT wanted £53 to cancel the policy with just 2 weeks remaining. I let it run out but you would have thought canceling the insurance reduces there risk.

I'm not sure there would be any risk to A-Plan because they are just the broker and have already been paid. Cancellation could provide a top up over and above.

My renewal has come through from Hastings. I think I've been with them 5 or 6 years now.

The same thing happens every year. The renewal is miles higher than last year, but they instantly become competitive with a phone call.

The renewal letters now state the price from last year so the increase is really obvious. You can't forget what it cost last year.

LV just said it was their best price when I phoned them.

Was going to go with Hastings but their price has went up £5 in a couple of weeks!

Yes A Plan would have been paid no doubt out of the broker fee, but surely asking for £53 to cancel a policy is a bit daft, its not like i was expecting or wanting a refund on the 2 weeks remaining.

I'll bet some would pay, so it is worth the chance and there is probably some cunningly worded, well hidden clause, that would make you liable were anything to happen.
Not that I have a jaded/dim view of the insurance industry and their shifty dealings!
