    Give Corn Market Insurance a call on 02890 332111 tell them your reference number on the Bike Insurer website and they will try to beat the lowest quote.

    Shit! Bennetts letter dropped through the letter box this morning. More than 6 pages of bumph to get my head around.

    Dear Sir, your on "auto renew" so we'll be taking £240.34 from you at the end of the month - unless you move smartish to tell us to FRO - 'cos "we understand that may be looking around for the best deal".

    No shit Sherlock. You can bet your boots I'll be shopping around. Maybe I'll go compare a few prices in the near future.
    Carpe Diem!

    I am 61, bike is 2003 1150GSA, garaged, Abus Granit disk lock,
    Full comp, married, own home, live in Nantwich, say 9,000mls a year, 90days Euro cover, breakdown, etc with Bennetts Additions and quoted £166 with 1 yr NCB from Bikesure who quoted me £235 renewal.
    No contest at the moment but, I would have liked to have stayed with one company.
    In fact, bikesure quote via bikeinsure was only £214 full comp with £500 excess.

    Maybe some of the small print differ in the two quotes but, certainly worth having no conscious of loyalty.

    That's a couple of quid more than Cornhill has just charged me. However, I took the legal and clothing cover which knotched it up to £138 fully comp. £350 excess. No voluntary excess.

    Background: 57yr old, Worcester, 9 yrs NCB, clean driving licence and claims history. 1200 GSA LC 2014 valued at 12k. Garaged.

    Because it was done through IAM Surety there is business use and observing included at no extra cost.

    With reduced annual mileage of 4999, you won’t be going on many adventures outside of the county.

    Just come back from a 3 week plus trip. Yes next trip will be June 2019 plus.

    Also it's an approximate mileage figure so can be exceeded by 500 miles and of course they are not aware of current mileage as not due until end of September.

    Bennets

    I have just been caught out by Bennets "Auto Renewal

    Up 33 % !!

    I specifically told them last year over the phone that I did not want the Auto renewal
    Bennets Operations support team have told me that they sent letter end of April to inform me of the renewal price and thet they carried out the Auto renewal on May 18th

    I have been working on a vessel at sea since 25th April

    NAturally I have asked them to check the phone recording in which I state "No auto renewal" and to refund my money ASAP

    We will see where this goes?

    Under consumer laws you have 14 days to cancel without any charges except the time of the policy used

    So glad this thread popped up

    Just insured the Hypermotard including helmet and leathers and legal cover for the princely sum of £220. I could have got it cheaper than that but picked the AA offer as theye were not asking any daft questions about modifications or exhausts !

    That is less than half of last years premium and way cheaper than renewal
    No one nods at me cos they think I'm a Cnut

    So after a very friendly call with Bennets they have

    Submitted a letter of complaint to Operations on my behalf

    Cancelled the autorenewed policy that commenced 18th MAy with no charge

    Quoted me a new deal to commence 7th June when I arrive home :
    $ 200 less than the cancelled policy and $ 80 cheaper than last year !!

    I can only say that following initial rage I am Well chuffed with this service

    Oh, And removed from Autorenew system for as long as with Bennets .

    Faith in the human race once more restored
