I asked Gladiator insurance to remove a named driver from my new policy a couple of days before the old one expired. The policy had already been renewed and I was told there would be a £30 fee. Is this unfair?
We spoke to Gladiator, which is a broker acting for a number of insurers, in your case RSA. It appears the charge was actually a slight rise in your premium, occasioned by the removal of the named driver.
You are less likely to incur charges if you make changes as soon as you receive your new quote, before automatic renewal.
