    Cooling off Period - Car Insurance 13th Jun 17 at 2:00 PM
    Hi Guys.

    Couple of questions, The cooling off period, is this 14 working days or 14 calendar days?

    If i change my address on my policy and they charge me a admin fee of £30.00 plus the difference of premium, does this mean i have entered into a new legal or credit agreement? would this in turn mean the 14 day cooling off period re-starts from the date of changing the address?

    Many Thanks

    14 calander days.

    They are amendments to an existing contract.

    would this in turn mean the 14 day cooling off period re-starts from the date of changing the address?
    no

    some insurers do charge admin fees even within the 14 day cooling period, always read T+C

    No it doesn't, but what advantage would you hope to gain if it did?
