my renewal came through and my car was up for sale. i told sky insurance this and said i only wanted the insurance for about a month. i asked if id be better paying monthly or paying for the year and getting a refund when i cancel, i was assured it would be better to pay it all in one go and get a refund. i didn't have quite enough money to do it and they said i could do it over 2 installments. a total of £600.
after about 3 weeks i phoned up and decided to change my policy to 3rd party fire and theft as i wasn't driving the car. they said this would bring my second installment down to £190 which i was happy with, this was due today.
my car sold on Saturday evening so today i phoned up to cancel. i was told i was due a refund of £240 which i was happy with as they hadn't yet taken the second installment. a few hours later i get a call and they tell my that because i had an outstanding payment they had calculated my refund wrong. they said im now only due £30.
so basically it has cost me £270 to insure my st for 1 month when i was quoted only £600 for 12 months!!!
needless to say i am fuming, really don't know how i never lost it with the girl on the phone!! im currently waiting for a call from her manager!
in other words: STEER WELL CLEAR OF SKY INSURANCE
