Have an insurance question?
You're in the right place! We've put together the most frequently asked questions by our customers - start by selecting a topic below.
If you cancel your policy within 14 days of receiving your policy information, we will retain £30 of the policy issue fee and the insurer will make a reasonable charge for the time you have been on cover. This may vary depending on the insurer. If you have any questions please call our customer service line for more information.
We offer full UK and European breakdown cover. It's got all the bells and whistles:
Yes, we offer a "Helmet and Leather" policy which covers your gear for the first £1,000. It doesn't matter what the gear is, Arai, Shoei, Roof, Alpinestars, Sidi, RST, Wolf... anything. This also has a separate excess, so claiming on this will have no effect on your No Claims Bonus.

If the offices are closed (after 7pm in the week, after 4pm Saturday and all day Sunday) you can enter your details here and we will send you a quotation.

As a general rule, the type of No Claims Bonus that you use on a policy must be the same as the type of vehicle that you are insuring. So, motorcycle NCB would not be acceptable on a private car policy, or commercial NCB would not be acceptable for a motorcycle policy.
The underwriters like to ensure that you have experience on the type of vehicle that you are insuring.
If you only have a type of NCB that is different to the type of vehicle you want to insure, please discuss this with us when getting your quotation. We may be able to find a suitable policy for your needs and driving experience.
We need to know what country your NCB was earned in as it can affect your quotation. The majority of underwriters will accept NCB only from the United Kingdom. We do have some schemes where we can accept NCB from other selected countries, so it is important that we are informed of the origins of your NCB before you accept the quotation. We can then make sure you have the right policy for your driving experience.
If the NCB is not from the United Kingdom but you have told us that it is, you would either have to pay an additional premium or your policy could be cancelled.
In the majority of cases, the NCB that you use to gain a discount on your policy with us must have been earned on a policy in your name. If the policy was in someone else's name, but you were the named driver, you would not have earned your own NCB. You may qualify for an introductory discount instead, so please let us know if this is the case when you are getting your quotation.
Very occasionally NCB can be transferred to another person, however, you would need to discuss this with the quotations clerk who is dealing with your quotation prior to you accepting the policy. This is not common practice though and would only be available is the underwriters of the policy agree.
We advise discussing your NCB options in detail before accepting your quotation, so we can find the most appropriate policy for you depending on your driving experience.
If you are unsure of how many years NCB you have, you need to speak to your most recent insurance company and ask for details. If you have more than one vehicle insured at a time, you can't add the two lots of NCB together to make additional years they remain as two separate lots of NCB.
This stands for "No Claims Discount". You earn a year's NCD for every full year of a policy in which no claims are made either by you or a third party. Some policies, such as classic car policies, are not based on NCD and so at the end of such a policy you would not have gained any NCD. Only the main policyholder earns NCD. NCD is also sometimes referred to as NCB - No Claims Bonus.
If your NCB expired over 2 years before the start date of your policy, you generally cannot use it. Please ensure that you discuss this with us when getting your quotation, as an additional premium would need to be paid if your NCB cannot be used if your quotation was based on it being in date.
There are some policies where NCB is not earned, but they will allow you to keep it up to date. If you are unsure about this, speak to the provider of the policy you had and ask. Of course, it is best to discuss your NCB options in detail before accepting your quotation, so we can find the most appropriate policy for you depending on your driving experience.
NCB can allow quite a large discount as it shows a good driving history. This must be proven to allow the discount. Unfortunately, insurance fraud is on the increase and we want to protect our clients from price rises caused by it by verifying documents such as NCB, driving licences and other important information.
