Q When will my monthly payments begin?
A Provided the application is completed promptly, the first instalment will be one month from the inception date of your policy. (e.g. If your policy starts on 1st of January, your first payment will be collected on 1st of February.)
Q Who/what are Premium Credit?
A This is the name of the finance company who arrange the monthly instalments with you and your bank. They pay off the balance of the policy for you and you are re-paying them in monthly payments.
Q Can I use my public services card as proof of my PPSN?
A No, unfortunately. Only the following items are acceptable: payslip, P60, P45, medical card, any letter from Revenue, social services or employment affairs.
Q Does my proof of ID/PPSN/address need to include my middle name/double-barrel name?
A Your documents will need to match the name on your insurance policy. e.g. If your driving licence has a double-barrel/middle name, this should be the same on your insurance documents.
Q I have been asked for a second proof of address. Why is this and what forms are accepted?
A This is required if another person is paying the instalments from their account. We can accept a utility bill or bank statement dated within the last six months.
Q What is the interest charged by the finance company?
A The interest amount is 9.9% on the remainder of the premium after the down payment is made.

Q My payment has not gone through.
A Premium Credit will make two attempts to collect the monthly instalment due. If the first one does not come out, they will attempt to collect again after five days.
