    It’s a situation were you own tin of Vaseline is an advantage.

    Could always telephone the, and if no success, buy from the comparison job by (that is if you are of a mind to still hand over your hard earned to a company who would do this-try finding one that doesn’t!)

    New customer bonus. Ask the company if they will price match. If not, go with the new quote. Ask them to send a letter to themselves confirming your no claims discount.

    A lot of companies chance their arm upon renewal hoping you can't be bothered to challenge it.
    Each year, when its time for renewal, hit the websites for the best deal.
    You'll never make easier money.

    Got one quote and called Carole Nash (my current insurer) back. Without knowing the quote I had, they reduced my renewal premium by more than 25%!

    I got a renewal quote though. It would have auto-renewed unless I challenged it.
    It was about 25% higher than previous year.
    When I phoned up and challenged the increase, the guy said 'oh, don't worry about that figure. Let's see what we can do for you'.
    Ended up being the same as last year, with the same insurer.
    Totally, chancing their arm to see if you notice.

    Yesterday CN were a bunch of shysters for increasing your premium and not giving you money back because you chose not to use your bike, now they are fools for reducing your quote by 25%?

    I renewed mine last week. Never wait for the renewal. Used the bike insurer and it came in at just under £92 with Bennetts with no additional security requirements. Happy days.

    Renewal arrived in the post today with Bennetts for £295 and i had to fit a disk lock of some description. Thats some new policy discount i received by going on line via a comparison site.

    Another interesting fact, i have full no claims bonus so never normally select the NCD protection. This saved £12 off my policy price. Weird is it not, more cover but cheaper?
