Rip Off Britain

A brand new episode of Rip Off Britain is set to air on BBC One on Thursday 23 May. The episode, titled “Paying £1 per mile for car insurance,” is the fourth episode of the show’s 17th season.

In this episode, our investigative team – Gloria Hunniford, Angela Rippon, and Julia Somerville look into the issue of pay-as-you-go car insurance. This type of insurance is designed to make driving more affordable for new drivers. However, the team uncovers cases where teens have been charged exorbitant rates, with one driver paying over £2,000 for driving less than 2,000 miles. They also explore the impact of mid-contract price rises, which can catch drivers off guard.

Additionally, the episode highlights the financial struggles of apartment owners who have been slapped with enormous bills due to their management firm’s overspending. The team calls for tighter rules to protect consumers from such unexpected expenses. Another topic of discussion is the end of guarantor loans and how customers of a prominent company could be in for a significant payday.

Rip Off Britain continues its mission to expose scams and protect consumers from unfair practices. The show has been a staple on BBC One since its premiere in 2009, providing valuable insights and helping viewers navigate various consumer issues.
