    Can my daughter get travel insurance?

    Just received a message to say she's been rejected because she's already started her trip. She should have organised it earlier. Bloody typical. But we are where we are. In her case, Dublin. She's planning to spend the winter in Morocco, but because her trip doesn't begin & end in the UK, the...

    I have house insurance that covers my bike and 3rd party insurance from membership of a national cycling club. Having recently brought a new bike I looked into the cost of insuring it against theft on my regular bike rides. The quoted cost was 3 times greater than my car insurance and my car is...

    Bike insurance

    Is it common to get insurance for a bike around the £1k mark? I assume multi thousand pound dream machines are insured but only ever having had entry level price mtb’s I’ve never considered it. Just had a quick look and see quotes are around £51/annum. I am going to phone my home insurer later...

    Car insurance panic

    I want to know when my car's insurance runs out. I think it's the 28th of this month, but i'm not too sure. I know it's due after the car's MOT which is due on Monday, so i'm still insured. To be honest i don't even know who i'm insured with, which brings me to my second problem. Last year i...

    Car insurance cancellation rip off !

    Our daughter bought my car last Saturday and she has insured it in her own name. I have also informed the DVLA of the change of ownership. I have 8 months left on my own insurance so I phoned the company hoping to get a refund as I had paid a year in advance. Their reply was a £60 cancellation...

    Bikmo Insurance

    For those of you looking to insure your bikes against theft, I haven't had any issues claiming through Bikmo. They have just settled my claim in full (less a 10% excess), no questions asked. Their underwriters, Hiscox, get a pretty bad rap in online reviews, but I had a good experience. I had a...

    Anyone know anything about Learner driver insurance?

    Both want to learn to drive - NOW! Apparently I need to sort out the insurance. Not entirely sure why - they're 21 & 24 - but apparently it is written. I did look into this a year or three back - I have vague recollections of finding a buy-it-by-the-day deal that seemed to make better sense...

    Cycle insurance

    I think that my frame has been damaged and wondered if it falls under my wiggle insurance I think that either the rear mech screws are worn in the frame meaning I can’t screw the hanger or the frame is chipped causing the screw not to grip onto the frame the rear mech basically falls out and...

    Cycle Insurance for travel

    Been looking at cycle insurance threads and posts. Online quotes are more than my 2018 Motorbike insurance and more than my VW Transporter.:sad: Home insurance doesn’t cover overseas travel which I hope to do and take bike with me when working. Any ideas ?

    My lovely insurance company has ceased the policy my expensive bike was on, and has stopped . All the others are within the £2,500 limit for 'specifed' bikes so have been added to the current policy (£1k for unspecified bikes) but my Herety was insured for nearer £5k (handbuilt frame and Dura...

    Holiday insurance.

    Don't skimp! On the first day of a two week holiday in Cuba, one of our tour group looked the wrong way crossing the Malecon in Havana. Stepping in front of a car doing 30-40mph is a very bad idea. She was scooped up by friendly locals after summersaulting over the car and landing on the road...

    Insurance cost and occupation has published some data about how the proposer's job effects insurance premiums. No surprises, although coppers appear on both lists - a police cadet on the dear one and a 'supervisory officer' on the cheap one. A countryside ranger is on the cheap list because they run cheap...

    Insurance premiums for young drivers.

    My grand son passed his driving test first time this morning at the age of 17 and a half. When he called his insurance provider, he was told his premium is now £276 per month !:cursing: He has a 2016 Ford fiesta with a 1litre engine. I think this is ridiculous to punish young drivers like that...

    Hi Guys I’m thinking of buying a Bianchi Infinito CV at a cost of £4600. My other bikes are covered by my house insurance and I’ll add this one on too. Should I also take out additional insurance? I just feel that paying a lot of money for a bike I should cover it as well as I can – almost like...
