Questions Of Cash: 'I was not told about a £300 excess charge'

Q. I purchased an annual travel insurance through Moneysupermarket.com with TIC insurers. At no time did Moneysupermarket.com inform me that there was an excess payable of £300. When I called TIC, I was informed that I would not be able to claim for a cancelled holiday – due to my mother having had a stroke – unless a £300 excess was paid. It would not be worth my while claiming as I would receive nothing: the cost of the week was £200. The adviser at TIC told me the fault lies with Moneysupermarket.com, which is not informing customers of the excess. VB, by email.
