Insurance Quotes
« on: February 08, 2015, 10:38:54 am »
Hi All,

I don't always trust the comparison websites to be 'totally' independent and give me the best answer.

Currently I am insured with Hastings Direct and I just got my renewal notice for £187. As usual I like to shop around and rarely just go with the first quote I get, must be the accountant in me!

I did try one of the comparison sites and got a quote of £139 with Bennetts with as far as I can tell like for like cover. Anyone got any experience with Bennetts, good or bad? Seems like a good deal so I will probably go with them but thought I would ask.

Thanks for your input,

Kevin

Hi Kevin.
I have been insuring through Bennetts for a few years. Remember they are just brokers and they can change the company that you are insured through. Last year it was Norwich Union, this year it is Zenith, lucky I haven't had a claim so I can't comment on their claims handling. They tend to give you an extra discount in the first year which they remove in year 2 so expect a bit of a increase next year. I was surprised that when I changed from my pan European the insurance was over £60 less for the trophy.

Hi John,

thanks for that.... I hadn't really appreciated they were a broker, good to know. Hopefully, I won't get to comment on their claims handling prowess either.

I am quite happy to take the first year discount and then shop around again next year! Hastings Direct will probably offer me a discount then to get me back! LOL

Just got full coverage with $250 deductible for $300 per year from Dairyland Ins. This includes a multi-bike and loyalty discount.

Cropbiker is in the UK so I don't think quoting numbers on US insurance will be very helpful....other than to point out the two things that seem to be universal regarding insurance companies, that is that insurance is overpriced and insurance companies seem to do everything they can to avoid paying claims
