    So I am with MoreThanSmartWheels and have a black box. I live far away from my college and commute daily so use quite a lot of miles. I have used 5,000 miles in about 5 months. On the app it says I'm nearly out of miles. I rang and the lady quoted me £800.00 for another 4,000 miles. Thats nearly as much as my initial policy. I really can't afford that. Does anyone know what may happen if I didn't top up miles and just went over? My brother did this and nothing came about of it after. Does anyone have any experiences like this?
    Thanks TB.

    They'd probably cancel the policy; why do you think it's so cheap? By limiting the mileage, you are less of a risk to them.

    they can and WILL cancel the policy, and you will be screwed. Morethan are anal, they sent me warnings twice for going 10mph over the limit, and issued me like 4 letters when I was getting close to the mile limit.

    If you cant afford non box insurance then cancel the policy yourself, and start another policy again when they return your remaining money.
