I am so incensed - we have just moved house and now live about three miles from our old address in what I would honestly describe as a comparable area.
My husband rang our motor insurance company this afternoon to notify them of the change of address.
Our premium went up by £9 per year because of the change of postcode - can't really see why but not really bothered.
However, he was then told there would be a £25 admin fee for changing the address details on our policy! He rang a different car insurance company asking for a quote and told them why we were considering changing companies only to be told that they too charge £25 admin fee for a change of address! OK we wouldn't get that charge as we would be starting at our new address but it is the principle!
I don't know if Gransnetters are allowed to recommend a car insurance company by name but would appreciate any subtle clues if anyone knows of one that doesn't rip you off! We have transferred our energy accounts etc with no admin charge so why for motor insurance?
