Bunch of crooks which is mild to say least.
Policy number Policy Number
52177462591 so you know who I am.
Insurance was paid to start today, recieved email
urgently to contact them as they said my insurance could be nil and void. Contacted them and they said that the bike I insured was a Kawasaki W800 cafe and not a W800 only however when I put the registration in it clearly said the cafe model so I didnt know what they were on about therefore they could not charge me anymore on this matter. So then they tried to get me on being retired which I also declared and that I had a part-time job which also I told them and that is what my quote was based on.
They tried to charge an extra £70 to keep the policy or cancel for £60 plus £28.27 for one days insurance.
I argued my case asked for line manager and low and behold not available. When I said small claims court Anika who I was talking with said they will drop the £60 charge and so I will only have to pay the one days insurance which is out of order for a void policy but I dont seem to have any choice to get away from this crooked company.
Beware you have been warned!!!!!!!

I had to find new Motorbike insurance after MCE (Gibraltar) went into administration. When running comparison, Bikesure came up with the lowest quotes on Gocompare. Clicked through and was taken to the Bikesure website (no options were given to change any details passed through from Gocompare website). I purchased a new insurance starting from 1st Feb - problems started here !!

A day later, I got a message waring that insure might be cancelled and asking to call them back. When I rang them back, I was told that I am going to be charged an additional £50 odd as I had not declared a third party claim. I went back onto the data entered on gocompare and there you go - claim was always there !!. Upon challenging this, they backed off (They couldn't clearly identify, where they received the data from).

Then they started their pressure selling to get me to spend another £70 odd to buy their excess protection, I declined which they were not happy about. This was followed by a lengthy description of all the ways in which a claim will be invalid. At this point, I had started losing confidence in them as an insurer. Just felt like they were lining up excuses to get out of any claims. I was then asked to provide a mileage declaration form and a license code, which I submitted.

The next day, I received another email demanding £78. Apparently they have my test pass date on record as 14/07/21 where as the actual test pass date is 09/08/21. I again went back onto the comparison websites to check the data, I was not asked to enter a precise date anywhere on the forms. Gocompare simply asks for a test pass month. So Bikesure now wants to charge a premium increase of £38 + £35 admin charge for changes to the policy, all this 14 days before the policy has even started.
By this point, I had had enough, rang up and asked to cancel the policy, thinking I am still within the 14 days cooling-off period. Surprise surprise, they have a £60 charge for cancellation buried within their terms and conditions !!

I was treated like an inconvenience by their customer service, so I am now proactively sharing my experience on googlemaps, trustpilot, FB motorbike groups and more !! So fellow motorbikers, here is my experience. If you have clicked through and paid bikesure - you are done for. They've got you one way or other !!

Bikesure customer ref: 59036612
Policy number: 2775438MC036616

I have given one-star and shared my experience, you be the judge. Happy to share their communications publicly if needed.

Purchased policy through money.com, location of bike overnight gave 3 options, I chose garage as private property was an option. Therefore policy invalid. Requested refund - £65 admin charge. In these current times, Covid, mental health issues there is no justification for a £65 admin charge.

The way these people do business makes me genuinely angry, as they will drain you for money at any given opportunity. I took out a policy at a rate of £260. About two hours after taking the money from my account, they changed the terms of my policy to a version I wasn't happy with. I was then faced with a decision to pay their new £900 policy or an £88 cancellation fee (despite never actually being insured to go on the road and being WELL within the 14 day cooling-off period).

AVOID.

Another Adrian Flux company that rips people off

Another Adrian Flux company trading by another name to avoid their poor reputation. Lack any customer service, overcharges and keeps money when policies are cancelled. I will be taking my money elsewhere and i would advise you to do the same.

Asked me to contact them after taking out insurance as they said it may be invalid. Customer services talked me through some minor changes that they said wouldn’t impact the quote but that I should change, such as increasing my mileage from 1000 to 2000 miles as I had previously asked for a quote on that mileage a few years previously and they’d checked their records. She was quite persuasive so I agreed, despite not needing the change. She then said “I just need to double check that this won’t alter the premium” and got me to confirm that I was happy for her to check. After a few minutes she returned and confirmed there was no premium change, as we knew there wouldn’t be. She then said there was a £35 charge for checking, I said I’d like to cancel, she said “certainly that’s no problem, there’s a £60 cancellation fee, shall I credit the remainder to your card?”, the insurance hadn’t even started. I’ve never encountered this sort of manipulation and blackmail from a company before, I was forced to pay the fee and she knew she had me over a barrel, makes me feel sick to the pit of my stomach that this sort of practice should be allowed to continue, I only hope my review will enable others to avoid this scam company.

Step-father is 75, can't do the internet but his renewal with another company was massive, so I looked around for a cheaper quote.

To cut a long story short, he ended up cancelling the policy after Bikesure bombarded him with emails asking for document after document to be uploaded to his "Online Account". He explained he wasn't able to do that, (we live quite a way from them so we weren't able to help).

The staff were obnoxious, unhelpful and rude when he called them to explain and only told him he could've posted copies to them AFTER he'd cancelled the policy because he was becoming increasingly upset by the emails and phonecalls.

The policy wasn't due to start until March 1st and they've charged him £60 for administration fees.

There are 8 motobikes in total in our family and none of us will use bikesure now or in the future, neither will we recommend them to anyone in the the grouos that we're all part of. I suggest if you're not a computer whiz to steer well clear!

Shocking service.

I had an issue last year when I bought the insurance online. Then i was contacted to clarify few details and it turned out that my policy went £500 up due to the fact that I will most likely be changing my commuting destination during the period of this policy... so I decided to cancel. Which costed me £45+. Absolute joke. I thought I will give it a chance once again this year. Same story plus £30 for two days of being insured. Very poor approach to customers. I feel robbed of money and time. If you wish to insure with them as the price seems very affordable. Make sure you do it over the phone.

Really terrible. They don't hold quotes offered through compare websites. I was charged an additional £170 for reasons not made known and the customer service is awful. I spent hours on the phone with the customer service team and they still didn't resolve the issue. The company even tried to persuade me that I was not licenced to ride my motorbike. They had not done their research and didn't even apologise after I directed them towards evidence proving otherwise. After all of the charges and admin fees, frankly it's fraudulent how this company ripped me off.
