Insurance Companies are beyond the pale and are tantamount to being fraudulent.
Admiral withdrew £730 from my credit card account this year even though I was not insured with them. I'd cancelled my Insurance Policy by email, letter and phone as the premium was too high. They could not take out another years (2012-2013) premium as I had cancelled the Credit card I had originally used. I went with Esure instead as their premium was £520. This is for my Golf GTI. Imagine my shock when I got their renewal request today!
Anyway, they were very apologetic and will return the amount in the next 3 working days. I'll be checking my account like a hawk.
So beware of Insurance Companies belonging to the Eui Group.They automatically renew your policy.
