Payment for the policy made by a card using continuous payment authority provides you with peace of mind that at renewal, the policy may automatically renew, maintaining continuous cover. If you do not wish to continue paying for your policy via a continuous payment authority, you can cancel this through ourselves or your card issuer at any time (Please see section 14 –V1.98 23/02/2022Renewals for further information). Please let us know if you would like to make alternative arrangements in order to pay for your policy.

Your policy may be cancelled if you do not keep up to date with the direct debit payments and a fee may be charged for rejection of a monthly payment or cancellation of the policy. (See the above section on fees)
We do not hold client money, but rely entirely on Risk Transfer, which means that we collect and hold money as agent of the Insurer. Premiums are treated as being received by the insurer when received in our bank account. Any refund of premium is treated as received by you when it is paid to you. We do not provide any guarantee to you with regard to the solvency of the insurers which we work with.
At the inception of a new policy, you have the right to cancel your policy within 14 days (30 days for Pure or Payment Protection policies) without providing a reason; See section 5 above for terms.
Depending upon the insurer, if you pay by Direct Debit and make a claim, the remainder of the year’s insurance must either be paid in FULL or the Direct Debit payments continued for the remainder of the policy term.
Some insurers do not offer any return of premium in the event of a mid-term cancellation. Please refer to your individual insurer’s policy wording for clarification.
The premiums shown are for one year’s insurance cover unless otherwise stated. The quotations are valid for 30 days. No cover will be in force until the proposal has been accepted by CETA Insurance Limited on behalf of the Insurer. A proposal is accepted once we have sent you an email with a link to download your policy documents via our customer zone.
