My car insurance automatically renewed without my knowledge. Apparently they sent me an e-mail 3 weeks before the renewal date but I did not receive it. I have checked the junk mail and spam folders, nothing. The only reason I found out was when they called today to ask if I wanted to increase the level of cover. When I asked what the new premiums were for each car I was horrified. My car, which I added to the policy during the last year had the annual premium increased by approx 3 times. There have been no changes in my circumstances, the only reason they gave was a different risk assessment applied to my car now. I am insured with a well known company, seems like sharp practice to me, not at all happy.
