Default Insurance

Buy my girl a 125 Intruder tomorrow, so needed insurance sorting.... She looked at various quotes, cheapest Third party F&F being a touch under 600...

So I thought I'd look at getting my renewal sorted for the next year, full comp on my 650 dragstar..., cheapest being 76 for the year.... 20 cheaper than last year!!! :O

A little shocked, but smug :P

you might want to look at multibike insurance with her as a named rider..I don't even know if that would work but my insurance for the Vmax and a VT700 is about 64 third party...before you dive into full comp look at the excess..

Yeah but compare that with what they get charged for 3rd party on a clapped out old fiesta and it looks like a steal

The secret to getting cheaper vehicle insurance these days is as follows.

Look for a firm that asks how much was your renewal quote..

Then leave it..

Get all the quotes you can and pick the cheapest..

Then go back to the one that asked how much your renewal quote was..

Give them the lowest quote you got on your search, even if it was from them..

They will undercut it..

John.
