*What's MSE Martin Lewis Uinsure Insurance Review?

Does Martin Lewis recommend Uinsure?

In terms of the range of Uinsure Insurance products, Money Saving Expert MSE are fully impartial in all their best home insurance buy reviews. As you maybe aware neither Martin nor MSE never endorse products.

Yes, they mention individual products & services on MSE site, but they make it very clear don't 'support' them.

What does Martin Lewis say about Uinsure?

Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis hasn't specifically commented on any particular Uinsure policies & how it stacks up against the competition. But U insure Insurance plans are a discussed MSE forum topic.

Instead the MoneySavingExpert however comments that he does '100% recommend Contents Insurance'. He says everyone should consider this, as it protects you against loss or damage to your personal belongings. MSE says YES it's a cheap financial lifeline but the ultimate monthly costs choice is always yours.

What buildings insurance cover you need will MSE advises, will all be dependant on your own particular circumstances. 

For example, he says if you're renting or own a property that's leasehold, you usually won't need buildings insurance to cover the structure of your home. This should be the responsibility of the landlord or freeholder - But he says do check.

For Combined buildings and contents they say this is a common choice if you own your home's freehold, as it's usually cheaper. He points it can also make claims easier, as there is only one Insurer to deal with. 

His Home Insurance top tips include...

  • Pay Annually For The Cheapest Policies: (monthly payments for your insurance - are essentially a high-interest loan)
  • Better Security = Better Deals: (Better locks > More secure your home > Less you pay for insurance)
  • Add-Ons: (Check what restrictions apply - unless you have extended the cover or selected optional extra 'add-ons')
  • Working from Home: (If you have regular visitors or hold stock - those won't be covered on standard home cover)
  • Unoccupied Property: (If your home is unoccupied for more than 30 days - check heating, gas & electric plan restrictions)
  • Excess & Premiums: (When you set your excess, think carefully on cost effects upon a claim)

Martin Lewis also suggests being the Money Expert - that you "NEVER BLINDLY BUY DIRECT" expensive policy offers either via your Bank or One Insurer ie; Shop around or use a Broker.

Lastly, MoneySavingExpert also said generally remember, not all insurers plans are featured on insurance comparison sites. As brokers, we would also agree here - so let us help you shop around for your best broker deals.

'Uinsure' Review | What happens at Renewal?

In summer 2020, Uinsure launched its new Rebroke at Renewal service. This searches and compares customer renewal premiums from their panel of leading UK insurers.

If say another buildings insurance provider is cheaper, they will offer their customers the opportunity to switch to that insurer’s new business price at renewal. 

Since launching this service, U insure state they has been able to create annual premium savings for 24,000 renewing customers, totalling over £1.2m.

How do I cancel my U insure Insurance Policy?

You may cancel (or amend) your Uinsure Insurance plan at any time, if your circumstances change. Like all insurance, you do have the statutory right to change your mind within 30 days of your policy starting.

The Insurers will then refund any premiums taken and your insurance cover would then end. 

However, if you should cancel at any other time, you won't get anything back because your policy has no 'cash in' values at anytime.

This also means if your circumstances have changed adversely afterwards & you then tried to request your Uinsure protection policy is put back onto cover again, this maybe declined. 

Uinsure Claims and Importance of Disclosure

All General Insurers are in business to protect, insure & payout. Insurance cover is therefore based on your full disclosure at the time you took the original policy out ie; being 100% as honest & accurate as possible.

It is not always easy to remember all historic details when applying. The Consumer Insurance Act 2013 says you must not be acting careless, deliberate or reckless when applying.

Should you make a claim, your Insurers will send you a claim form for you to complete. Once received back, they will then assess if your insurance claim is valid and cross check if you originally disclosed all the correct details.

If you look at most Insurers recent claims payout, you will see that it is Good (but like most Insurers - not 100%).
