Insurance Policies

Aminister in Wales has been told that her car insurance could be void because she has put religious stickers on her vehicle.

Wena Parry, 75, was warned that her badge, which reads 'Christ Must Be Saviour', could be regarded as a modification in the same way as the spoilers on a sports car. In fact, Age UK Insurance said it wouldn't have insured Parry at all if it had known about the stickers on her Vauxhall Zafira.

Parry, a minister in the Independent Congregational Church in Wales, said: 'Every opportunity I have I want to tell people about Jesus. I reckon there must be at least a million people who have read the texts on my car and no one has had a problem with it.'

She says she paid £120 to cover her car in messages spreading the gospel. Her insurance company became aware of the badges after thieves damaged her car outside her home in Cymmer, near Port Talbot, South Wales.

The insurance company contacted her, after she made a claim, saying she had ten days to explain why she had not told them about the stickers and warned that the policy may be declared void. Fortunately it eventually concluded that the wording in their policy had not been clear enough when Rev Parry bought it.

Age UK denied that the threat to withdraw the policy had anything to do with religion and will now be reviewing the wording on their policy applications.
