FCA rules on renewal transparency

All the information that should be included can be viewed here.

Why?

These rules were introduced to improve customer engagement with the renewal process and promote effective competition.  They apply when a firm sends a general insurance renewal notice to a customer, with a duration of 10 months or more (group policies are not in scope).

Firms are expected to take into account the FCA’s original consumer trials, which showed that disclosure is most effective when on the front page of the renewal notice.
