General Insurance Tips

Motorcycle insurance can be a tricky business, we know that, like us, you just want to get out on your bike - not be comparing policy schedules. But it must be done and it should be done properly.

The number one rule for cheaper motorcycle insurance is to simply shop around. MCN Compare makes it fast and simple to get multiple quotes. Although you’ll be tempted to go for the cheapest quote at the top of the page, take your time to look through the quotes and see what each one offers.

Some may include breakdown cover as standard, while others may ask for a small fee for that to be included.

Buying insurance used to mean spending an entire evening or two filling in your details on each individual insurer’s site, but with MCN Compare you can get up to 37 quotes in just minutes.

Take a look at our How to save £££’s page to drag that price down even lower.

When you’ve decided on a policy that fits your needs and received the official documentation take time in checking it over and ensure your level of cover is what you expected.

With many companies you will have a 14 day cooling off period where you can cancel your policy for a small admin charge (but check your provider offers this).

Double-check that your policy is accurate. Everything from your profession to your annual mileage must be accurate otherwise you will face the risk of your policy being invalidated.

Insurance companies usually send you a reminder 30 days prior to expiry. A month can go by very quickly; the final day before your insurer automatically renews your insurance with them can easily creep up on you.

MCN Compare will send you a comparison of your potential insurance policies for the coming year when yours is up for renewal, taking in to consideration that you have the same bike and an extra year’s NCB.
