Best bit, no long menu, you get to speak to a real person. A fair price and they seem to know about what the classic enthusiast wants from insurance.

Liked your competitive quote and more reasonable fees for mid term policy adjustment. The reason I changed from Carole Nash was a mid term adjustment fee of £35 which they charged me for an additional bike the premium for which was £3.80 a total of £38.80 - VERY GREEDY
