Ok this is slightly ridiculous, but we are off on holiday to France on Saturday so I was just looking up car insurance info so I can call them and let them know we are going etc. Well I cannot for the life of me find anything!! There is no way I will have not insured the car last summer when it was due for renewal, but I have searched my emails and can't find a thing (no email confirming insurance, no docs, no email with quotes - I always use, and I've also checked my hard copy files and nothing there either). I am not a loyal customer to any company, I shop around each year and go with the best quote, so I can't remember who I went with. Is there any way I can find out who I used and to make sure I am insured?! Surely I wouldn't have been able to tax my car if I didn't have valid insurance.
PS yes I do feel very silly and quite worried now!

Look at bank statement for payments??

Can you use the search function on email, and put in "insurance"? If it's any consolation, I did exactly the same with my buildings/contents insurance. When it was up for renewal, I couldn't find details of my current cover anywhere. Turns out, in a rare fit of efficiency, I'd created an email folder for all my insurances.

Thanks for clear thinking!! Am furiously checking bank/credit card statements now. Have searched "insurance" and "car" on emails to no avail. Have checked all folders and have checked all emails within a week or two of renewal date. Nothing!!

Maybe search on 'motor' as well? Or 'renewal'?

Check on this database, OP

It'll tell you that you're insured, but it won't tell you who with, I'm afraid

Check you are insured here.

Thanks all, hallelujah I found a payment to admiral around the right time and have now successfully logged on via their website and found my documents. Big phew! I knew I wouldn't have missed the renewal (believe it or not I'm quite organised!) and have no idea why there are no emails about it. I had checked via that website that I was insured in the meantime, which reassured me I wasn't going mad!

Thanks v much smile

I'm with admiral and they sent me nothing when I renewed too.
