Ah the old carrot then stick approach. Okay I'll pass on the carrot what's the stick?
The term 'Admin Fee' applicable in the case of a successful claim will now be called an 'Excess'
Presumably because they've had trouble justifying £15 worth of admin fees?
The amount of the 'Excess' that is payable on successful claims will change from £15 to £50
Ah so they definitely can't justify £50 of admin fees. Of course we can just cancel, but woof that's a hell of a prices.
