    Tesco Car Insurance - Cancellation Fee

    Tesco Car Insurance - Cancellation Fee 15th Feb 12 at 4:21 PM

    A little advice required. I have had my car insurance with Tesco for about 7 years. Recently with my wife being made redundant ad me being able to work from home we decided that we no longer needed 2 cars so we sold them both and opted instead for a nice sized family car.

    The new car is in my wifes name and she et up the insurance to cover is both.

    For this reason I no longer needed my car insurance with Tesco so cancelled the direct debit and informed them that I no longer owned the vehicle.

    They advised me that I needed to pay for the remainder of the month whihc is 14, no problem, then however they have now told me that I also have to pay a 30 cancellation fee on top!!

    I then get several letter through the post, the first one showing I owed them 14 which (and get this) includes the 30 cancellation fee!! Then 4 days later I get another letter telling me I owe them 58 and then 4 days after that letter a letter saying I hadn't paid them.

    I told them I was not happy, I told them I dont feel it very fair that I am penalised for selling my car and that how can it go from 14 to 44 to 58 in the space of a week???

    I am not happy, I dont mind paying the remainder of the month that the insurance covered but I am not happy to have to pay 30 to cancell it when I paid monthly by DD but then to be told its 58. I know its not a lit but it is when were on a single wage with 2 young children.

    Can anyone offer any advice, I rang then to tell them that I would have to pay it at the end of teh month when I got paid but they didn't want to know only telling me that the debt will be passed on to a debt collection agency, which I think is really out of order
