After my car insurance went up again this year( after a 5 year no claim and driving for over 10 years) I took a cheaper online 2 months ago. It costs us around £20/month with a £50 deposit which was not bad at all.. But we are currently upgrading the car as we have a baby in the way.. So we need to now have a full comp policy. When i phoned them yesterday, they told me that i will have to forget what we already paid for this year and the new policy would be around £800 with £30 admin fees... For a car which will cost around £2500 and is 8 years old.. Or the alternative is paying £150 to cancel the policy and get a new one somewhere.. IABU to think they are just greedy whatsit without a thought about customers...

Car insurance costs have very little to do with the cost of your car, and a lot to do with how much they have to pay out on personal injury claims. So yabu

All depends on what your new car is...could be a really high group vehicle and you are getting more cover for having comp cover.

They aren't trying to con you - you are the one changing the risk.

YANBU though for being annoyed at the price increase
