very good service, fee a bit high for adding/removing vehicles should be lower.

Whilst the service from Footman James is excellent no matter how you contact them phone, letter, or e-mail.
It is a pity that the cost advantage you start with gets eroded over the years until after three or four years you look at competitors and can get a better rate, for my part I may look elseware next year.

Great value insurance for multiple bikes, especially as a member of VMCC. Phone renewal takes a little bit longer than should be necessary, but the operatives are always friendly and helpful.
