Extortionate renewal charge

My elderly mums home and contents insurance jumped this year to £50 per month! What a rip off. We have cancelled the policy and now pay £12.10 per month. She's never made any claim either. Reviewed on: 30th December 2023

Charged for a claim that wasn't paid

I'm looking to cancel my policy with Swinton. I would expect the premium to not be paid for the remaining period of the policy. Instead, Swintons are charging me nearly £300. The reason is an unsuccessful claim that we made a couple of months prior. My son's bike was stolen, and I wasn't sure if it was covered by our policy. When I spoke to the team to ask, they suggested that I claim as that would be the only way to find out for sure. Which I did. It turned out not to be covered. Shame, but I accept that - if it's not in the policy, then it shouldn't be paid. But now I come to cancel the policy, and instead of having the remaining premium cancelled, Swinton are asking me to pay £287 for the claim that wasn't covered. Is that not beyond ridiculous?

I have a combined buildings and contents policy with Swinton, I massively regret going for the cheapest option. Swinton don't actually seem to do anything, if you call them, you actually are calling a company called marker study, every part of the policy is farmed out to a different company, meaning it is close to impossible to actually get anyone to take responsibility, they all try to blame the other companies. They have been a nightmare to deal with, being passed from company to company with no accountability. Reviewed on: 30th August 2023
