car insurance question regarding statements

I have been looking at car renewal prices (and shocked how much they have gone up!) 

I was going for a reasonable quote with Marmalade however just before it got to the payment part there were some statements that they assumed- one of them was that no driver had been made bankrupt or insolvent either as part of a business or individual. 

I had a DRO about 10 years ago!!

There was no option to alter this statement and I got a little freaked so I just closed the page!! 

As DRO is a type of insolvency would I be right in thinking that could affect that policy had I gone ahead? 

Should I look at a different insurer?

Any advice/ quince would be greatly appreciated! 

Thank you!

    Websites are designed to deal with the 95% of straight forward cases hence you cannot alter statements. Some insurers as a whole only want the straight forward cases and so the response on the phone would be the same but others are willing to look at the remaining 5% over the phone and so will often prompt you to phone if you cannot agree to the assumptions/statements. 
  • Ok- thank you :smiley:
