I will not use any insurance company that asks [whether spent or not]. Not all companies do ask. LV do not (any conviction more than 5 years old spent or not) and neither does Aviva so it begs the question why others do. I have heard that some companies sell the info to market research companies who then sell it on to third parties but I am not sure about
this. Either way I feel it is wrong for them to discriminate. My conviction has nothing to do with car insurance or house insurance for that matter.
I did anonymously ask Aviva prior to using them and they confirmed that "such information was not relevant to my quote" so therefore they don't ask or want to know (see my previous post). I also confirmed the same over my house insurance which is competitively priced.
If some big insurers can offer insurance without asking then why do others insist on doing so, it can only be discrimination or selling on of information either way I wouldn't use them. I have 2 cars and a house insured with companies who don't discriminate. The ones that do, well that's their loss.
Question for Unlock, why do the big insurers who will offer cover not appear on your list of Insurers, shouldn't you be promoting the likes of LV, More Than and Aviva? LV especially as any criminal offence more than 5 years old is not counted for insurance. Some of the companies on your list wont offer cover for certain offences which I think is highly discriminatory. The very thing unlock is against ?
