That's incorrect. They can and they do.

A provider can't give a renewal quote thats higher than what a quote would be to a new customer, that doesn't stop people shopping around it just means you don't have to ring your provider EVERY YEAR just to ask for them to apply a discount to your quote that you have to do EVERY YEAR.

It will happen, but as it's a zero sum game it makes no difference imv, unless I'm missing something salient. The end result is more expensive motor insurance for those that shop around, who were effectively subsidised by those who did not.

Isn't it just a proposal anyway? Either way they will just claw it back some other way. I have a couple of properties that I let out and it reminds me of when they changed the rules so that tenants didn't have to pay a renewal fee. All that happened was the agents put up the rent.

There are always ways of getting round price issues. Raise the new customer prices as one example. They would have done something similar when insurers couldn't rate on gender

Yes, and since it applies to all it is a zero sum game and therefore the stock price hits are simply ridiculous

Just for clarity, what the FCA have said is that an insurer can't give a higher premium at renewal than what a new quote would be for the same risk with the same insurer

EI - yes I just renewed Home insurance with DLG but I had to phone to get the price down after 20% rise. They just raised the excess from 200to 300 to get the price lower so no big deal but they do try it on.

Fall here may be an overreaction. Customer acquisition is far more costly than customer retention. On a personal note I've cancelled a DLG motor policy a number of times over the years when they jacked up the renewal quote and it was cheaper elsewhere, that experience can't be unique. Would have happily stayed with Direct Line otherwise. As the sectors largest insurer, DLG should enjoy economies of scale.

FCA report this morning they are clamping down on price walking, so insurance shares are down. The insurance companies will just end up raising prices across the board, so pretty pointless reaction.

There's more out there in this sector with more growth potential however.
