Card holder protection. Is it worth it?
Ok, a few years ago I was signed up for a cardholder protection thing for 3 years which would cover all my cards, driving license, NI card etc. I paid £35 for 3 years cover which I thought wasn't too bad for that sort of piece of mind. One call apparantly and all the items that were registered could not be used any more inc credit cards, passport etc. It also gave me cover if my items were used for fraudlent activity either online or on the highstreet.
I just recieved a reminder for this through the post. Back in 2005 i only paid £35 for 3 years cover. Now they want to charge me £70 for 3 years!! I do like the peace of mind having this protection but does anyone know of any alternative protection programs which are just as good and/or cheaper than the Barclays one.
