No. You will have a pricing commitment from us for three years, but you're not tied to Royal Bank of Scotland for three years. You will still be invited to renew every year and can choose to not renew the policy if you wish. You can also cancel the policy at anytime outside of renewal, although an administration fee for cancellation will apply unless you are setting up a replacement NatWest home insurance policy. If you do cancel your policy at any time, the three year fixed price will end.
