    So if I update my insurance to let them know I'm unemployed (online so no admin fee luckily) the premium goes up £150 (will cost £56 as I'm over half way through the policy)

    I should have another job soon, but don't wanna risk having my insurance invalidated in the mean time. My question is, when I get a job, will they pay me some money back (obviously without refunding the time I was unemployed)?

    Im not sure- your best bet would be to phone up the insurance company and ask them. They should be able to give you a deffinate answer.

    No, they won't.

    Of course now, your job status has changed; therefore they're going to be informed and the extra premium is for you to pay whilst you are unemployed As soon as you get another job, let them know and see how much it rises/goes down again. I don't see why they'd pay you back for the meantime whilst you are unemployed.

    I'm really not sure how it works, but either way you look at it, it's best to be 100% honest and never miss anything out.

    Not true. Try it and see! It is an immediate change to you're circumstances which could affect our amount or type of driving. It's like moving house, if you move from a Cotswold Village to Birmingham Centre and tell your insurance company watch the price - it'll skyrocket. Same applies for employment status.
