FAQs and common queries

  • You can cancel your home insurance at any time during the term of your policy. You can do this online or by calling us.

    ​After renewal, if you change your mind within 14 days, we can cancel your policy back to the start date and give you a full refund of your premium, unless you have made a claim. If you wish to cancel but would like to remain covered until the date you cancel, you’ll need to pay for the number of days cover you’ve received.

  • After you cancel, we’ll send you a letter in the next 14 days. The letter will let you know if there’s a refund due or anything left to pay.
