We offer a choice of premiums

Guaranteed premiums - your premiums will stay the same unless you alter your plan, so you'll always know how much you're paying.

Reviewable premiums - your premiums are guaranteed for the first five years of the policy. Reviews will then be carried out to determine whether the premium will be changed at the fifth anniversary and every five years after. This is to establish if the premium you're paying is enough to provide the level of cover selected. Learn more about reviewable premiums.
