Is it fair to be charged a fee to move my insurance policy to a new address?

I've just moved house. I told my insurer, Saga, and they charged me £42 for the change. Do you think this is right?

It's perfectly acceptable for them to charge an administration fee as long as it's a reasonable amount. This would be deemed reasonable. You will find this in your contract as well.
