Insurance: Two bikes are better than one!

Discussion in 'UK Motorcycles' started by Whinging Courier, Jul 9, 2005.

  1. Just phoned to get the mighty GS put on the CBR policy and it's twenty
    quid cheaper than insuring the Honda on its own!

    They had to cancel my existing policy and start another one but go
    figure...

    Have you turned 35 or anything significant like that since you took the
    policy out, or got a similarly round number of years since your test
    under your belt? They seem to offer big discount based on that sort of
    thing.

    I've had this in the past. If this was done through a broker you'll
    most likely find you're with a new ins. co. because your previous ins.
    co. didn't offer or weren't competitive on multibike policies.

    Do they give you money to insure your bikes now, then?

    Kinda..

    I was 35[1] when I took the policy out when the last one lapsed in April
    but now I'm over the threshold iyswim.

    That's exactly it. The policy I had before didn't allow multibikes, this
    one I've got now lets me have four.

    Direct Choice came in cheaper for a ZX6 & an R1 by quite a good lead. £362
    the pair, FC, + 1 claim No claims protection. Double excess if either are
    lifted within 500 metres of the house tho.

    Direct Choice were better than Auntie Carole for the Honda[1] but were
    about a hundred quid OTT for the pair. Best they could do, too..

    [1] I went with CN (AC) for the CBR because they said they'd bung my car
    on come renewal. Sounds like a lot of messing about but it seemed like a
    good idea at the time.

  10. Snap. Autie carole couldn't add the zzr to the bandit policy, and wanted
    in excess of 800 notes for the pair on a new policy.

    Bike Team Limited finally got down to £360, with everything (unlimited
    mileage for both bikes, full CIHAGM entitlement, all legal cover etc.
    The only thing knocked off was breakdown, it was uk only (I have AA with
    bank account), and I'm fucked it I'm paying Auntie Carole that kind of
    difference for euro breakdown - I'll get a full AA/RAC/Whatever policy
    if I feel the need.

    Quotes like that make me feel old.

    wisdom:
    Never heard of them, will (try and remember to) file them for later.
    I got full CIHAGM cover, too, which was a nice surprise. They told me
    full breakdown but TBH, I don't know if this means full UK or full,
    full.
    Well quite, the AA when I was with them was about fifty for a two week
    break in the Netherlands a few years back.
    Young looking women make me feel like I should be a better lover :)
