Insurance help

Im going to be 5 months short of my 19th birthday when my current insurance runs out. Do I not have the bike for 5 months and walk (this is an option) or what else can I do? When passing my A2 I would like a new bike, I wouldn't mind financing if I hadn't saved enough. Looking for some like a Yamaha MT-07, Ninja 300/er6f or something like that, I like sport bikes and a few naked bikes too such as the MT which still looks sporty. Will I realistically be able to afford to sell my A2 bike ...

Appreciate advice on this please

Evening all, I recently changed jobs and, in order to avoid the overpriced and unreliable public transport here in the big smoke, I decided to buy a motorbike to get to work. I've held a bike license for nearly 18 years, but have been out of the loop and haven't had to insure a car or bike for the last 10 years. I headed over to to put in my details and see how much the they were asking. The cheapest policy came in at around %XA3200 mark. I should add at this point that I wanted to keep ...

Hastings - Total Loss, lowball offer

Hi guys and girls. I can only apologize for my first post being a needy desperate plea rather than an introduction, but since I no longer have a bike anyway...Basically, my mint 8000 mile '53 plate blue SV1000S with Devil Trophy cans (hugger, undertray) was sadly destroyed by my garage catching fire in a spectacular fashion nearly 7 weeks ago. Hastings have made their second and final offer of %XA32,900 which apparently they are not willing to increase. Now the problem is, I cannot even begin to find another in the same condition for that money, at least, not within ...

Don't buy from Bennetts!!!!

My bike insurance was automatically renewed by Bennetts at a high cost compared to other insurers. Apparently Bennetts can help themselves to you money (because they have your card details from previous policies) by claiming that they sent you a reminder by post. The reminder allows you to stop the automatic reminder, great but the first I knew of this was when my new policy arrived. Phoned Bennetts and was told it would cost %XA330 to cancel a policy that I did not want or ask for! You couldn't make this up!Martin

Highway robbery Insurance scam.

Comment invited please. I've had a policy through Devitt insurance with the cover being provided by Chaucer insurance. I sold my bike after having the policy out for four months I rang them to cancel the policy and Devitt wanted %XA350 to cancel it and Chaucer wanted %XA334. So a total of %XA384 when the policy was only for %XA3125 in total. Surely they can't get away with this. How does it cost %XA350 to cancel a policy? Do all Insurance companies charge %XA350 to cancel? Thanks for all your advice, I cancelled the policy but I think it's ...
