At Footman James we specialise in classic motorcycle insurance and vintage motorcycle insurance. That is why we understand the special bond that riders form with their classic motorcycles, especially if they have been restored and rebuilt as a project of passion. Footman James offers classic motorcycle insurance that is tailored with enthusiasts in mind; and because of this the cover provided for helmet and leathers has increased from £250 to £750 on all classic motorcycle policies.

I renewed my classic bike policy recently, it had increased a little & I had taken the agreed value option. When the paperwork came through the renewal was £50 lees than I paid. It transpired I had been given the breakdown recovery & European travel both of which I do not need. I called FJ & they immediately reimbursed me the differance, very happy :-)

Price has gone up dramatically, no longer viable.

The service is friendly. Unlike to many insurers who the first time round give a very keen price then the next time round increase the quote considerably. The prices from your firm hardly alter year to year.
