Review Bikesure's Motorbike now

They've been taking payments without my knowledge for the last 2 years

I switched to another insurer 2 years ago and just found out they've still been taking payments to insure vehicles I don't even own anymore.

Shocking company. Started a policy to begin 2 days after paying for it. Got a call 4 days after start date to say that not all details are correct so they asked the same questions I answered when I applied, changed the answers against my will and charged me a tonne extra. No choice. Fast forward a week and I've just come home to a letter stating they're cancelling my policy because they "still require clarification on some of the answers I provides online". The letter was made 8 days ago and the policy ended yesterday. No emails, no calls to say this issue has been resolved in the meantime. No notice of this letter being sent out when they last called me. I've been sat on hold to the number in the letter for 15mins and still waiting. I could've ridden out today uninsured without knowing. Absolutely shocking service and robbing company. The only upside was that I got to ride my partners bike whilst waiting for mine.

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.
