Traditionally, insurance companies collect ESL as part of a customer’s premium on their home, car and some commercial insurance policies.
This ESL is charged by insurers on the basic premium to fund their liability to the emergency services contribution scheme.
How can I check how much ESL I am currently paying?
The ESL charge that you are currently paying is listed on your current Home and/or Car Certificate of Insurance.
I have received my Home or Car insurance renewal, how can I compare my new premium to what I paid last year?
The Home and Car policy renewals are now showing comparisons between your current renewal versus your last year premiums paid.
Will I get a refund of the ESL if I cancel my policy?
If you paid ESL on your policy and your policy is cancelled, you will be refunded the remaining pro-rata premium including a pro-rata ESL.
