Are there any important restrictions in your policy I should know about?

We will not pay any claim under any circumstances (including for theft) if your car is: left unlocked; or left with keys or key fobs in, on, or attached; or left with the engine running; or left with a window or roof open. This applies no matter how briefly any one of these occurs.
C If your car is damaged, we will pay the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle up to its UK market value. This is the current value of the vehicle at the time of the claim – and it may be different to the amount you paid for your car or any amounts we spoke about when you insured your vehicle with us.

Do you charge any fees for anything?

Yes unfortunately as it does cost us to do certain things, but we try to keep these as low as possible, our terms business details what these all are.

Do you provide cover if I'm still a learner?

Yes, our policies last for 12 months and require a woop buddy so you should only buy from us if you will be driving the car to be insured once you’ve passed your test. Once you pass your test you’ll need to tell us that you have a full licence but this won’t change the premium you pay.

Can I pay for my policy in instalments?

Yes you can provided you are over the age of 17, although you will have to pay interest. Just let us know you want to pay in this way when you buy your policy and we’ll arrange it all for you. If you are 17 then you will only be able to buy your policy by paying in full.
