Autorenew? They should have told you in advance what they were ripping you off for. Always opt out of such an arrangement.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

My insurer sends me a letter well prior to renewal detailing clearly the new price, the current price and the change. This is in addition to changes in the policy terms.


The RAC offered us a renewal, that weekend (Jubilee) the AA had a special offer, better cover and less than half the price. We called RAC to cancel and they upgraded our cover and beat the price by £1. Worth phoning around.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

'FAQS' - usually listed after some new policy has been revealed.
How do they know they are faqs if something has just been announced?
More like these are the questions we'd like to answer and are not open to any others !

Basically the same as any commercial service provider … seeing as the FAQs implicitly admit ahead of time the things that can go wrong with the service, they use them as an extension of their marketing by having the FAQs suggest all problems are trivial and easily fixed. None of the problems that actually drive you to read FAQs are ever listed there.

The latest buzz word - ' Perfect !'.
Really annoying for some reason, particularly when it isn't perfect.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Lots of wasps buzzing about just above our front door/porch - on closer inspection, it appears they are going in/out just below the lead flashing on the porch.

Someone's coming out tomorrow to look at it/them...

I hate wasps. There's only one good kind of wasp and that's a dead one.

Don't like wasps but they are useful. Just not in our houses.

Flies are a big one for me! They leave tiny stains around windows too.
Awful things!
