Bike insurance
« on: June 25, 2021, 05:54:56 PM »
Hi.  Just had my renewal notice of insurance for my 900gt pro, 400 per year (Carol Nash) I think because its a new model they have loaded it. They are taking the mick. Please can I be nosey and ask what other 900 gt pro owners are paying and who with?

Hi, you need to change insurer every year. Insurance companies get big discounts for new buisness. I changed from principal who were very good to bennetts in may this year. I have two bikes on one policy. 2017 explorer (1200cc), and tiger 900gt 20 reg. both are fully comp, protected no claims, legal expenses. How much i hear you ask ? 277.19p.

As above ...... always shop around.

Just put my Tuono back on the road.... tried a price comparison site and it came up with 96.
Noted neither Carol Nash or Bennets were in the top 10 so put my detail direct on their website.
CN 256 , Ben 95 - all identical cover / excess etc so went with Bennets.
I'm sure I will have to repeat the process again next year !

I've been with Carol Nash for years but I've rarely renewed on the price they present on their renewal note.
Either I've went back into C.N. as a new customer and have ALWAYS got a cheaper quote than the renewal cost.
Or I've called them and discussed the quote which they can usually get some discount.
I tend to stay with them for the EU cover for breakdown etc..

I haven't used Carole Nash for a good few years now, always too dear.  I rotate my bikes round MCE, Bennetts, Devitts, this year using Brightside for the Tiger.
Also just to add, i used to have a multibike deal but insure them separately now as i was only getting one NCB credit per year even though two bikes were insured.

I have 4 bikes on a multibike policy. Added my GT Pro last week, making 5 bikes. Extra premium was 105 to the policy renewal date, which multiplies up to 140 per annum. Happy with that, Peter James Insurance.

Carole Nash will never see another penny from me after an incident 10 years ago.

Thanks to the guys who replied. Went on a compare site got quotes ranging from 180 to 250 all nearly like for like. Armed with this info phoned C/N and had a discussion with the adviser I managed to reduce the premium from 400 down to 232.00 and with lower excess. Probably stay with C/N. They were very good dealing my accident 4years ago.

I was with CN for the best part of 20yrs until my Street Triple renewal in 2014 was ridiculously raised. Moved to Bennetts for half the CN price, though without the CN inclusive breakdown, etc. which I never used/needed ... and ironically with the same insurance company (Equity Red Star). Then after a bit they inevitably hiked their renewal up wildly and I'm currently with Aviva Direct (who have no longer taking new motorcycle customers). I'll see what my August renewal brings, hopefully not another round of chasing quotes.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!
