This week: home insurance renewals, shareholder perks and Nationwide banking glitch
Does your home insurance premium seem higher than last year? It probably is. With home insurance often eating up a hefty chunk of your income, we investigate the premium hikes that many customers experience when it comes to home insurance renewal time, and how a bit of mouse-work can potentially save you hundreds of pounds.
