Is it fair that I was charged £50 to cancel my insurance policy after two months of cover?

Saga charged me £50 of my premium, which is £150, to cancel my policy after less than two months of cover. They told me the cost was for an admin charge plus my two months of cover. Do you think this a rip off?

If it's in the terms and conditions and is after 30 days then they are fully entitled to the £50.
