Depending on the type of insurance cover you’ve taken out will depend on when cover expires. For car insurance policies, the period of cover is linked to the frequency with which you have chosen to pay the premium due. For example, if you choose to pay monthly, you will receive insurance cover for a term of one month. You may renew the policy for further terms by payment of the premium due for those further terms. If you’re paying by direct debit, you don’t have to do anything as your policy will automatically renew unless you tell us otherwise.
It’s easy, simply contact your local credit union to arrange payment or phone us directly on 0800 369 258 between 8.00am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday. Remember, if you’re paying by direct debit, you don’t need to do anything on renewal as your regular payments will continue, unless you tell us otherwise.

Unfortunately when your car insurance policy lapses you won’t be covered for car insurance. However if you do make a payment and we have received it our Service Centre team will be in touch to check the policy details are still correct and re-issue a new policy schedule and document.
