    Car insurance 18th Apr 17 at 5:49 PM
    My wife mis-read when her car insurance expired. She took out a policy with another company one month too early.
    I pointed this out to her 17 hours after she took it out. She has called them and they have cancelled it but have charged her 49.99.
    Is this correct & within the distance selling regs etc ?

    Many thanks.

    No "distance selling regs" for car insurance.

    If the fee is in line with their conditions it will be correct.

    That doesn't mean she cannot have a moan at them, point out she will be back in a month and can they waive the fee/ credit her account with it as a goodwill gesture.

    No harm trying.
