Over 400 wordings have changed since our last update – see what’s been happening so far.

With Unfair Contract Terms (UCT) now in effect, new wordings are hitting the market thick and fast, with 274 new or updated wordings sourced so far in March alone! 

The PolicyComparison team are working hard publishing updates as quickly as possible but as you can imagine the volumes are very high. To assist you in navigating the quickly changing wordings we will flag newly expired comparisons as ‘Pending’ during the period between the sourcing the newly updated wording and the completion of the comparison.

Look out for the “Pending” flag on comparisons, watch this space for the new comparison in the very near future.
