    The big Corgi con 5th Mar 18 at 3:45 PM
    Took out comprehensive corgi boiler/water/pipes cover, burst outside frozen water pipe, rang 12.30 Friday 2nd to report it, engineer contact within two hours I was told, no sign 3 o'clock, call center stops operating.

    Saturday 10.30 told corgi had outsourced call centre as they were experiencing problems, all repairs complaints had to be emailed. Monday morning 5th, 4 days later, no water, no heating, no toilet, I was told corgi don't cover 'frozen burst water pipes' . 'RELAX' you are covered on every leaflet, its a con, but obviously when I get my magnifying glass out it will be there in the fine print.

    Insurance is for unexpected events, something that wasn't the case with what happened to you.

    Not sure where you gpt the plan from but they don't do a 46 a month plan, you sure ou got it from corgi or from a third party ?
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    It looks like the plan that the OP has (Corgi home plan plus) isn't a current one.
    It's likely that it has been discontinued for new customers but the people who had already signed up can continue on it.

    My cover is 46 a month, which covers all pipes and boiler comprehensive, not a mention of excluding frozen pipes, I don't expect pipes to melt in summer but I do expect them to freeze in winter, why else do people think they need pipe cover for?

    I pay my boiler man around 50 a year to do my fire and boiler. And my utility supplier has refunded 40 today because the unsmart gas meter installer cooked up the fire and I had to get him back. as for the pipes, had a plumber in to sort that out and it only cost 40 as well.


    That is why I don't pay for none service like this!
