PremFina knows that these times are difficult for everyone and we are here to help. Please find below some information on what to do next if you are experiencing temporary financial challenges due to the Coronavirus circumstances.
I am experiencing financial difficulty and may not be able to make my monthly direct debit payments. What should I do next?
Emailing is the quickest way to contact us as we are experiencing high call volumes at the current time. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible if you are experiencing financial difficulty. Don’t forget to include your agreement number in order for us to locate your file. Please do so at least 5 days ahead of your scheduled payment so that we can work together to find a suitable solution.
I will miss my payment due in the coming days or I have already missed a payment. What should I do next?
If you are about to or have just missed a payment, please do not worry. You will automatically receive a letter from us notifying you of the missed payment and we will attempt to take the payment again, within 5 working days. You can also make a manual payment by following the instructions listed in the letter we have sent you. However, please email us at email@example.com as soon as possible if you are unable to make a manual payment and if you believe this second attempt will remain unsuccessful. We will work together to find a suitable solution. Don’t forget to include your agreement number in order for us to locate your file.
Do you offer deferral payments?
We understand these are uncertain times and you may be encountering difficulties. If this is the case, please contact your insurance broker to discuss your insurance policy and whether they offer any cover extension, policy freeze, downgrading or some other solution to reduce the insurance premium amount which would reduce your loan and monthly payments in the case your insurance is essential to you. As a last resort, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will review each situation case by case and advise of what we can offer depending on the terms of your loan with us. Options may include a payment deferral.
If you have any concerns about your financial position, please visit Citizens Advice where you can find further support.
Who is PremFina?
PremFina is an insurance premium finance company. We work with insurance brokers and their customers and help spread the cost of insurance premiums through a monthly direct debit arrangement. When your insurance broker arranges your insurance, he will likely offer you a direct debit payment facility. If you accept this payment option, you will enter into a credit agreement with PremFina that is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. PremFina will then administer the direct debit arrangement.

I want to cancel my credit agreement.

We will then arrange cancellation of your credit agreement and notify you. Please note that you can only cancel your credit agreement if you have paid off your loan from us in full or if your insurance policy has been cancelled.
Why have my monthly direct debit payments changed?
This is most likely due to a change having been made to your insurance policy that has resulted in a change in the premium. The resulting additional premium or return premium will mean a change in your direct debit payment amounts.
I have received a payment default letter from PremFina. What should I do next? If you miss a payment, or if your payment was unsuccessful, PremFina will notify you in writing by email or post. We will try to collect the payment by direct debit 9 days from the date of our communication. Should the second collection attempt be unsuccessful, we will require you to make a payment by debit or credit card on our payments portal within the time frame stated in our communication.
