 Bennetts insurance....IMPORTANT.

    Took out an insurance policy with Bennetts Biking Services Ltd..... did it online and paid with my debit card. They wanted proof of NCB sending through, which I did by email (one of the methods accepted).

    Got a return email saying thank you, it is being 'processed' and to ignore any letters in the meantime.

    Got a letter a couple of days ago saying if I don't send proof of No Claims Discount they will be charging me an extra £105-31 plus a 'policy amendment fee' of £32, so I ignored it as advised as I had not had any further response from the NCD department.

    This morning, at 7.35am (yup, on a Sunday morning) I received a email from Bennets '....thanking me for upgrading my policy.....' and '....Following your recent request to make an amendment to your policy, your new insurance certificate, policy schedule and Statement of Fact detailing any changes that apply can be found attached......'

    I have had no letter or email refusing my proof of NCB

    I have had no letter or email informing me that they WILL be taking £137.31 from my bank account.

    I have made no .....'request to make an amendment to my policy'.....

    I HAVE CERTAINLY NOT GIVEN MY PERMISSION for Bennetts to take any money from my account.......but they have.


    As this is a public forum feel free to repost this if you wish, I'm dripping with spare cash so it's of no consequence to me but others may not be as fortunate......this is purely a public service announcement.

Bennetts are rob dogs when it come to bike insurance. Last year I insured my Harley 883 custom and Suzuki SV650 at a cost of £109 and a few pence for both bike on a multi policy . This year I have taken the SV  off the road so was expecting a significant reduction in mu policy with Bennetts . When I came to renew it in May did it on line and was completely gobsmacked when the renewal price for just the Harley came back at £188.79 . Suffice to say I didn't renew with Bennetts.
