    Car insurance 9th Jan 18 at 9:45 PM
    Hello guys Im devastated today as I was about to pay for my insurance and thats where it all began .
    I was about to pay but got an error and was told to call, i called and the representative said some information must have been incorrect. After about 2minutes he says that i didn't state about my theft in march 2017.
    I said i didn't claim or anything as the car was recovered in less than 24 hours and i payed for everything out of my own pocket. The representive said it still counts as a motor accident or claim and with this new information he quoted me £900 more which is crazy. Now on comparison websites , if i check that box and enter theft and 0 money was claimed i do get quoted minimum of £900 more than before. Is there anything i can do? Any help is appreciated.

    The box im talking about:
    Claims & Convictions (sorry not able to post image)

    The wording is often Accident or Incidents even if no claim was made.

    You had a theft, even though you did not claim you still had a loss/incident.
