Our service and the products we offer - We offer information only about a policy from one or more insurance undertakings without giving you advice or a personal recommendation, in which case we will provide the names of those insurance undertakings as follows:
We provide motor insurance from a single insurer, Admiral Insurance (Gibraltar) Limited, which is owned by Admiral Group Plc, although we are not required by contract to do so. Admiral Insurance (Gibraltar) Limited has its registered office at P O Box 575, First Floor 24 College Lane, Gibraltar, GX11 1AA and is licensed by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission to carry on insurance business under incorporation number 85455
The insurance is managed and administered via Veygo which is a trading name of Able Insurance Services Ltd, an insurance intermediary, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, Firm Reference Number 311649. Able Insurance Services Ltd is a subsidiary of Admiral Group Plc.
You will not receive advice or a recommendation from us on any product but we will offer you products that meet your demands and needs and give you enough information for you to choose whether or not to proceed.
We generally act on your behalf in arranging your insurance, but we’ll make clear at the outset whether we are acting for you or for the insurer in particular circumstances.
Insurer Security - The insurers we use are regulated and are required to have adequate capital resources. However, we cannot guarantee the solvency of any insurer we place business with. An insolvent insurer may be unable to pay claims or may be unable to pay them in full and you may have to pay a further premium to pay for alternative insurance cover.
How we are paid – In return of placing business with insurers and other product providers, we generally receive a commission from insurers which is a percentage of the annual premium that you are charged.
You are entitled, at any time, to request information regarding any arrangement fee which we may have received as a result of placing your insurance business or arranging premium finance.
Please be assured that at no time will the way in which we are remunerated conflict with our responsibilities to meet your needs and treat you fairly.
Administration fee – We may charge you for the work incurred in handling your insurance. These charges apply if you instruct us to arrange insurance, carry out mid-term adjustment, renewal, cancellation, or other work on your behalf. Any additional charges, if applicable, will always be agreed with you in advance of them becoming due.
Insurance documents – Your insurance document will be issued electronically, as part of our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint. We strive to operate in an environmentally acceptable and responsible way. You will also benefit from receiving your insurance documents sooner. If this method is not acceptable to you, you can request that we issue your insurance documents by post free of charge.
Identity Checks - To verify your identity, we will use public and personal data which we obtain from a variety of sources. This includes credit reference agencies and other external organisations which would have been contacted in order to agree your subscription. Some searches may appear on your credit report whether or not you choose to buy from us.
Your duty of disclosure - Under the Consumer Insurance (Disclosure and Representation) Act 2012 it is your duty as a consumer to take reasonable care not to make a misrepresentation to an insurer. This means that all the answers you give and statements you make as part of your insurance application, including at renewal and when an amendment to your policy is required, should be honest and accurate. If you deliberately or carelessly misinform the insurers, this could mean that part of or all of a claim may not be paid.
Mid Term Adjustments (MTA) – When making a change to your insurance policy, after its start date but before its renewal, this is considered as an MTA. For example, changing your address or changing your vehicle four months after your insurance policy has started.
An MTA may result in either an increase or decrease in premium; this will be advised by your insurer. We require either the MTA charge to be paid in full or, where appropriate, an initial payment to be collected and the remaining difference to be spread across remaining payments.
Insurers may decline to accept an MTA request; in these instances, if the MTA is required then you may need to cancel your policy and seek insurance from another provider, to continue with your vehicle subscription. Requests for MTAs should not be considered as applied until you have received confirmation from us. If in doubt, contact us for confirmation of the MTA status.
Cancellations – Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to cancel your insurance. You will be entitled to a full refund if you cancel before your policy has begun. There is no cooling off period, however Wagonex does not charge a cancellation fee. If your period of cover has started, a risk-based refund will be calculated that considers the duration of cover and the level of risk incurred. If any refund is due, it will be returned to the original payment method within 3-10 days.
MAY WE REMIND YOU THAT IT IS A REQUIREMENT OF THE VEHICLE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE TO HOLD COMPREHENSIVE COVER ON THE VEHICLE.
Renewal of your policy – Prior to any policy renewal date, we will write to you, in good time, to advise of the terms for the next policy period.
It is important that you check the details we hold are correct and up to date; any errors can impact your insurance covers meaning that your policy may not be in force and claims could not be paid.
Where you review your renewal invite and identify differences in your circumstance you must call us to inform us what has changed. We remind you of your obligations under Duty of Disclosure (above).
Your policy will not automatically renew, therefore we require your instruction to renew your policy. You will be provided with a renewal invitation in good time before the end of your policy. If you do not wish to accept this, or if you wish to amend any of the details you must call us before the end of your current policy on the number provided on the renewal invitation with your explicit instructions.
Important – If you have not received written confirmation that your policy is due for renewal, you will need to contact us prior to your policy ending to arrange cover for the next policy period.
