So I’ve only got 2 reasonable quotes for my central London location and MT-07, and they’re basically the same in terms of cost, excess and benefits. The difference is negligible.
Ones with MCE and ones with Hastings Direct.
Reviews seem pretty close too, although Hastings Direct win by half a star or 10%.
Anyone have any comments that could help me choose?
For anyone who saw that I took our a policy with The AA and was very happy with it: 2 days into the policy The AA called me up to say that the underwriter had reviewed my overnight location and wasn’t willing to accept it. They admitted that this was their fault and offered to give me a refund plus a weeks insurance while I find a new insurer, which I thought was good. Turns out that if the entrance to the place you keep your bike is not the same address as your house, even if it’s the same development, it’s considered as being kept in a different location. In this case the underwriter was not insuring bikes that were not kept at address of residence.
Still recommend The AA if you can get insurance with them!
