Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

once you have complaint and hassle from insurance just write to them and say you will only deal with them in writing from now on , better to have prof of what you said and what they sad to you , and you can respond to then with out getting all wound up.
i had trouble with budget insurance about a car i sold and the policy carried on they said owed £215 but sold it .. alot of trouble untill provided profe i sold the vehicle, writing all the way better...
but £50 for canceling a policy you have paid in full bollock get them reported them to the right peolpe ......something smells fishy to me....

good luck dont stop untill its sorted, and dont give in most people do , just pay what they say they owww its easy for most people just to make it go away..

good luck

This sounds crazy to me

I would first of all check the terms of business in relation to cancellation fees. Then complain using their complaints proceedure and threaten to report then to the FSA under the "treating customers fairly" rule.

Sounds like this company needs to avoided at all costs!!

No wonder the Insurance Industry has such a bad reputation!

Listen to this man. Nigel has more experience of the insurance business than most
