    Not currently a Sky customer but have been intrested in being one for a fair while now, friend of mine was talking about the twenty five pound admin fee received when modifications are added during the policy, looked into this and found a quote on another forum saying this fee was for "receiving the phone call/notification, adding the modification to the system, transmitting this to the insurer, issuing of paperwork, sending of paperwork, processing of paperwork when confirmation received and chasing of if applicable" these simple tasks should not be at the customers expense especially when someone specifically invested in a policy as it does not contain additional charges for modifications.

    I think you will find most insurance companies apply an admin fee for any changes made onto the policy mid term, not just Sky. There's 'horror' stories all over the internet about excessive admin fees with all insurance companies, it's standard practice with most of them.

    Ah right cool, to be honest I thought it was free across the board, could a killer for me as I'd spend a fortune in admin fees.

    Try and plan as many mods as you can and do them all in 1 weekend, saves shelling out on loads of admin fees, it's a pain having parts stocked up and having to hold back fitting them but saves money in the long run, better than letting insurers get any more of our hard earned cash
