This is the first time I have come across Auto-renewal for House Insurance, its time all insurances had an 'opt out' box you could tick when applying for a policy, its a right con, unless you can make contact via email you can rack up a sizeable bill on the phone with some companies who love to keep you waiting in an 'alleged' queue

I am sorry sir if you pay by credit card you will have to agree automatic subscription at next year renewal unless you cancel before hand.

 

By chance I arrived home early from holiday by one day under the cooling off 14 day period. I noticed the wrong auto phrase had been used I phoned up immediately to inform them to correct otherwise I would have incurred a fee of £30

My policy is auto renew but they inform me 1 month before hand what the renewal will be. It then goes on to say that it will be renewed on NN date UNLESS I cancel the policy before hand.
So far their premium has not been bettered by any comparison site
