If you were thinking about buying your wedding insurance from M&S, there are plenty of other providers, many of which are listed on our wedding insurance comparison table above.
In 2010, Marks and Spencer wedding insurance started disappearing off the radar. Firstly, their Google entries for search terms such as "wedding insurance" lost their descriptions/snippits (suggesting they had been redirected elsewhere). Then any reference to wedding insurance was removed from the M&S Bank (formerly M&S Money) website.
We would assume that current policies will still be honoured but it would definitely be worth ringing them if you're a policyholder to confirm this. According to a thread on the MoneySavingExpert forum, M&S are writing to customers but no further detail is given.
If we find out any more we'll be sure to update this page and if you happen to know any more or if you're an M&S wedding insurance customer, please do let us know.
M&S Bank launched in Autumn 2012, adding to the services provided by its former brand - M&S Money. M&S Money provided a range of financial services for 25 years, including personal finance, pet insurance and travel insurance. In 2012 the M&S Premium Current Account was launched, followed by the M&S Current Account with no monthly fee in 2014.
