  • Travel Insurance and Strikes
    cancellation cover starts immediately Make sure that the travel insurance you bought covers industrial action If not you may have to purchase a new policy and there won t be a refund if the old policy was bought more than 14 days ago The extra cost may make you decide in the future to buy a decent travel insurance policy though a broker rather than one online with no cover

  • Landlords to have annual electrical checks?
    mentioned involved a circumstance where the wiring hadn t been checked for 30 years In theory it would be more sensible for every private dwelling house to have annual checks however electricity is less dangerous than gas and checks on a less frequent basis should suffice In offices for instance every electrical article has to be checked annually once it is a year old and we have the ludicrous position

  • MMA to take over Provident
    websites have been too low to make any money During the next year I anticipate that motor insurance sold on aggregator sites will become more expensive than through an insurance broker as insurers are sustaining much worse claims experience MMA also have specialised in the over 30 restricted driving market Provident however are more of a specialist in the younger end of the market especially the female driver As a broker we also know that the type of business Provident attracts TPFT on low value vehicles also has a high default rate Provident cancellation charges are amongst the highest of any insurer and to be honest their insurance policy is not the best in the world see the Defaqto website where you can find out how bad your online car insurance policy is as an insurance broker we offer better policies There are as far as I can see three possible reasons Motor insurance rates are going to harden so the sector might become profitable this take over will increase MMA s size of the market As Provident specialise in the younger female they should gain proportionately due to the ECJ Gender Ruling on 1st March The market has decided

  • Extended Warranty Insurance
    we do insist that all articles are out of manufacturers warranty before insuring them it makes no sense for customers to insure something that does not require insurance in the first place As usual to us it is the same old story Extended warranty insurance can be a good product to buy providing all the information is provided and there is no pressure on the customer exerted by the salesman

  • Not Cheap Car Insurance
    amending risk details to try and get a cheap car insurance quote is much harder to spot via a computer than via a human The only benefit the internet can offer is a cheaper price Insurance providers cut cover and benefits and pay out less on total loss claims so that they can quote a cheaper price The best insurance policies and advice is provided by Brokers Insurers have been locked into contracts with wholesale brokers and been unable to amend terms to cater for the increase in claims These deals are now ending Many car insurance suppliers on line build into their model referral fees from solicitors for handling their customers claims for compensation It is in their interest as a supplier to ensure that there are as many personal injury claims as possible There are other problems lack of cover lack of personal service that seem endemic with companies selling insurance online Make sure you can speak to someone who is knowledgeable at the end of the phone If you want to know how bad your insurer is have a look at an insurance review website and be prepared to be shocked I would not be surprised if

  • PPI Misselling Court case
    5 billion A good product mis sold Payment protection insurance is actually in principle a good product The policy protects the policyholder should they lose their income due to accident sickness or unemployment Unfortunately the banks realised what a powerful position they were in when their customers approached them wanting a loan e g a mortgage and virtually forced them to take out mortgage protection insurance the salesmen were on a commission basis and were encouraged to sell without checking whether the customer could actually claim under the policy The insurance broker Many insurance brokers do not offer payment protection insurance regarding it as the province of banks and building societies and financial advisors Those that do so would as professionals ensure that the customer s needs were met and recommend the most suitable policy for them Policies available through brokers are much cheaper than through the banks commission is lower At the moment the FCA is increasing contributions to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme to cover compensation for mis sold PPI policies There is naturally resentment amongst brokers that they are having to contribute towards a debacle of which they were not a part BIBA is organising a petition

  • The Pension Postcode Lottery
    with the use of statistics for their underwriting As they cannot use gender as a rating factor they have to try and be as accurate as possible In fact it is surprising that they have only started using postcodes in the last few years Once the trend has started then of course all insurance companies must follow suit Those that don t will be paying higher sums to people who live longer and thus will be disadvantaged The aim will not be to maximise profits market forces see to that The aim is to attract clients by giving them the best deals possible although it is likely that those who are rich enough to subscribe to private pension plans are probably living a much better lifestyle than those others living in the area with a short life expectancy What can you do The only possible thing would be to go and live for few years in an area of poor life expectancy just before you draw your pension As you can buy an annuity on the open market the company you put your pension to need not be aware of the fact that you lived somewhere else for many years

  • Payment Protection Insurance - Banks Cave in
    I would suggest that customers who feel they have been mis sold PPI should contact the bank direct rather than go through a claims management company The CMC is only going to do what customers should be able to do by themselves and substantially increase the expenses paid by the banks This could have an effect on bank charges etc as banks seek to recover some of the money Please
