- Confused.com’s motorbike insurance service now compares policies from 35 providers-
In the first quarter of 2012, comparison specialist Confused.com teamed up with Vast Visibility to broaden its online bike insurance service.
Confused.com now goes to 35 insurers to compare motorbike policies for its customers. These include MCE, Bikesure, Carole Nash, and most of the other leading providers in the UK.
The motorbike insurance quotes service has been relaunched as a much slicker experience, helping to make it easier for bikers to find the right policy at the right price.
Confused.com compares policies for a range of motorbikes, including mopeds, scooters, classic motorbikes, sports bikes and quads.
And with every motorbike policy bought, customers can still claim 1,000 Nectar points.
The Nectar points promotion ends midnight 08 January 2014. Claims must be made within 60 days of purchase.
Alex Higgs, Head of Motorbike Insurance at Confused.com, says: “We are delighted to be in partnership with Vast Visibility, working together to provide an even better service for motorbike insurance customers.
“We can now offer an even wider range of policies and a wider range of prices. With the list of questions nearly 20 per cent shorter*, getting a quote through Confused.com is now easier and more intuitive than before. And - as ever – we will continue to make improvements.
“Having helped bikers compare insurance deals since 2008, we have a loyal base of valued customers, and hope to help an ever-increasing number of bikers save money in the future.”
The service shows prices for all three levels of cover – fully comprehensive, third party fire and theft, and third party only. This gives the customer even more information with which to make an informed decision.
In addition, policy features can be compared side-by-side to aid with the decision of which policy to buy. At a glance, it’s possible to tell which policies feature helmet cover, breakdown assistance, legal cover and so on.
Once a bike insurance customer has compared policies with Confused.com, then comparing prices the following year becomes easier too. Confused.com sends the customer their best prices** at renewal time, so they can see at a glance if it’s worth allowing their policy to renew automatically, or if they’d be better off comparing policies again.
Also, for the first time, motorbike insurance customers are able to complete their quotes over the phone. This is useful in case they get stuck, and means that it is now even easier to get quotes.
Another way bikers could keep their motorbike insurance premiums down is to read Confused.com’s motorbike insurance articles, which are full of top tips and useful pointers.
*Current number of questions is 46, as opposed to 56 previously.
**It is assumed that the customer’s data hasn’t changed, for example no change of address or job title. It is assumed the year has been claim free, and No Claims Bonus and number of years licence held are updated automatically.
