    Had the standard letter wanting to charge me 50 for the same policy this year, phoned them up and they reduced it by 45. However, if I go online can get the same policy, same company even cheaper by about 20.

    Can I cancel (let run out) my policy and rebook with the same company without it being a "grey area".

    If you mean is it oK to start a new policy for less than the renewal price of your existing policy then yes, assuming they accept you


    Otherwise you need to explain what "grey area" you are concerned about

    I just thought it might be a grey area starting a new policy with the same company rather than renewing.

    So they send you a quote for 50 and then they reduced it by 45 when you phoned them which means it is now 5.

    Then online you saw the policy 20 less, so -15. They are paying you to go with them

    or maybe you just missed out the word "more"
