Any insurance policy purchased through this Website will be subject to these Terms, the Insurance Terms & Conditions we provide to you and the full policy wording. Your policy will be issued as confirmation that cover has been issued, however, a sample copy of your insurer’s policy wording is available on this Website. Your policy will be issued based on the information that you gave to us and the declarations you have made and you are strongly advised to read your policy carefully, as it is this document, the schedule and/or certificate that form the insurance contract you have purchased. If you are in any doubt over the policy terms or conditions please seek our advice promptly.
When will you receive the documents?
We operate a two stage sales process which means that whether you buy your insurance online or accept an offer by our sales team you will be contacted by our support team who will check through your information to make sure it is correct and that you are eligible. For policies that are not bought online your insurance cover will not be effective until you have received a call from our support team and they have confirmed to you when cover is effective from. If you have any doubts about your cover or you have not received your policy documents after making a purchase please contact our customer services staff immediately.
We reserve the right to retain your certificate(s) of insurance until all payments due under the policy have been made. Any agreed facilities for payment of premiums by instalments will include our right to retain certificates of insurance until all such payments have been received. By accepting this agreement you agree that delivery of any certificate including certificates of motor insurance to us shall constitute delivery to yourself in accordance with United Kingdom law.
Provision of Cover
Cover cannot be granted in the absence of premium payment, or part thereof. In the event of an initial payment not being authorised, cover may not be deemed to have been afforded in any way. It remains your responsibility therefore to ensure that sufficient funds are available so that cover may commence.
Please note that we are only able to arrange insurance on this Website for individuals resident in the United Kingdom (excluding Northern Ireland), continuously for the past 12 months and all contracts arranged through our agency are subject to English Law.
The policies available on this Website are underwritten by a number of different insurers. You will be told which insurer is underwriting any particular policy before you decide to purchase your insurance and you will also be provided with details of the insurer. If you need to clarify anything before buying any insurance policy please contact us. Our opening hours are Monday to Thursday 8:30am – 8:30pm, Friday 8:30am – 7:30pm, Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm, Sunday and Bank Holidays 10:00am – 4:00pm.
Instalment Terms and Conditions
If you are eligible we may be able to offer you the option to spread your payments under a credit scheme by introducing you to a third party finance provider or an insurers’ instalment scheme. In providing this service we are a Credit Broker and not a Lender.
Where applicable details of this service (including any other applicable charges) will be provided in the credit/scheme agreement that the financier will provide to you. We do not charge a fee to arrange direct debits but we may make an administration charge, which will be explained to you when you arrange your policy, to cover the administration of the agreement throughout the term of your insurance policy.
If you have chosen this method of payment, in the event of an instalment becoming overdue or declined we reserve the right to cancel all cover from the overdue time and date.
Following cancellation you will be liable for the immediate payment of any shortfall in premium outstanding and we reserve the right to employ the service of debt recovery agents where necessary.
Please note that a finance agreement is a contract between you and the finance provider, and is separate to the insurance contract.
Please also note that in the event of a claim, any balance of the total amount payable shall become due immediately on demand.
