Hidden fees for cancelling early and no refund of premium when you do

1
I have given one star as I can not give none. Apparently if you cancel your insurance early you get charged a fee for it. I got a text message saying I had to contact recoveries because of a shortfall on the premium when I had paid in full and cancelled with a month left. Seems like a con to me. It's in your T&C's so beware people. Reviewed on: 13th January 2023

Hidden Fees

1
Unfair cancellation fees Absolutely robbing young people. Cancelled policy which had been paid in full.policy still had 4K in the to run on. The company claimed that they get to retain 90% and then had the audacity to charge an extra £20 cancellation fee. Reporting to trading standards and also the financial ombudsman. The terms are not set out clearly. Reviewed on: 13th January 2023

Beware hidden fees

1
If you dare to pass your test while driving on a Collingwood annual learner policy, you will be charged £35! Apparently this is in the terms and conditions but as far as I'm concerned it is a forced hidden fee. Collingwood required that after passing your test, you inform them and they cancel the policy. As you have chosen (??) to cancel your policy, you then get charged a cancellation fee. This is ridiculous. I do not recommend taking this insurance out as you will get penalised once you pass your test. Reviewed on: 9th January 2023
