Car Insurance lockdown discount?

When I renewed my car insurance with LV a couple of weeks ago I asked if there was a reduction due to non use over the last year as a result of lockdowns. I was informed that there was no such offer. My mileage over the 12 month period was less than half my normal mileage, but no account taken. I was asked for feedback on the renewal process & duly raised this issue. I have now received a phone call informing me that a £15 refund is being credited as a result of my feedback. Result!

I have already been awarded a refund of Ä110 up to last November. But I had to submit my mileage (kilometrage) and hope for a similar this year.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

One of the money saving journalists was talking about this the other day. He said we should all apply for it. It would be better if they just gave it!

I rang LV a couple of months ago, I got a £15 refund.

It would appear that you need to apply for a refund rather than getting it automatically

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Are we all looking at a hike in our premiums when the pandemic is over? They will, of course, claim that, whether we had a refund or not, our premium during the pandemic was based on low mileage and must now be increased
