That's what I intend to do when my insurance lapses in May
I rang Green light just to see what they had to say and was very impressed. All logical T and C's and when I discussed my issue with a helpful young bloke ( who obviously knew his cars and was similarly pationate about them) and provided a fantastic quote.
Due to the cancellation fee I have no choice but to ride it out but I will contact Green light back.
The thing that hacked me off was the fact it is just unreasonable and illogical decision the insurance company made. They are taking my money for a service, I do the right thing by telling the company about the mod of which many drivers may not bother I am hit in the face by an decision that makes no sense, and if I cancelled my policy after a month I would still have to pay off the entire lol icy! ! There comment is it is in the contract but come on and I really expected to read over the entire document with a fine tooth comb to ensure I am not being screwed?. Fair enough if I dropped a different engine into the car so the change was dramatic but just changing the Airbox is equivalent of using super unleaded over unleaded.
I know people hate drivers who drive around without insurance but I have 2 friends who in a number of weeks have each had an accident. Both, 100% not their fault, both stationary yet the insurance companies managed to riggel out of paying out and both were 50/50 outcomes. Disgusting, if I claim on my house insurance, phone insurance, or any other insurance I get a pay out with minimal hoops to jump through. With car insurance its the exception rather than the rule. The industry is one step away from legal fraud....
This was also by no means aimed at Green light, just One Call and Admiral as I had a run in with them about automatic renewals and miss sold insurance of which they screwed me also.
