Very disappointed, the new quote was some 25% dearer than competitors, as I have a hearing disability I used the web-chat via Whats App, only to be told I had to ring the call centre and the staff would talk more loudly for me! What a cheek, I wanted to stay with them, but after this discriminatory comment, no thanks.

Never using again. Just been forced to pay a cancellation fee because THEY had to cancel my insurance due to me not wanting to pay £6000 a year when I was only paying £55 a month.

Would not use again. Of the 85 companies I’ve had to change my address with, Bennetts is the only one who charged me (£32!) to do so. The policy is only like £120 or so in the first place. The online portal wouldn’t let me do it. It cost …

I’m very undecided about the service.
On the negative side it took me three attempts to get through to customer service with wait times ranging from 20 to 70 minutes. I bailed out twice because I …

My first experience with motorcycle insurance, and I’d checked a few companies direct or on comparison sites. Bennetts direct beat them all, and with the added benefit of BikeSocial I’m very happy. …

Do not use this company.
It has taken me 4 attempts to cancel this policy, and the fees have been greater than the annual policy because their online system didn’t work when I cancelled …

Really disappointed in the outcome of my insurance uptake with Bennetts. Hopefully I don’t need to call on the insurance services, but I’m sure there won’t be any issues if I do. The policy wasn’t the cheapest available on the comparison …

As insurance goes and the included benefits, you cannot go wrong! However be warned if like me you purchase your insurance through a comparison website, their BikeSocial membership is NOT INCLUDED!!! I was somewhat disappointed as I’ve …

I was extremely frustrated at having to wait 2 hours on the phone again and really hope Bennett’s get this sorted asap.
Once I finally got through I spoke with an absolutely delightful person called Dee. She was so lovely and really really helpful.

The price you see on a price comparison website is unlikely to be the price they offer you and if you do take out insurance via a price comparison website, you won’t be able to qualify for all of the benefits they give direct customers. …

I have bought a policy a week ago but when I log in into my account it is shown as dormant. Company has not replied to my email and webchat is active up to the point where real person needs to take over; as nobody responds, the software ends the chat. Three times at different hours – the same outcome.

Chose Bennets from a comparison website – I had an issue with previous ownership so needed to speak direct with customer service. I did wait 40mins in a queue which is the only reason you don’t get 5 Stars – Policy covers everything I …

Took far too long to get through to someone but when I eventually did, she was extremely efficient and dealt with my enquiry professionally and well. Waiting over 30 minutes is unacceptable, Bennetts need to get this sorted.

Was with carol Nash for ten years with no claims. Bennet’s said I had a month to provide details after I had paid ! Carol Nash are dreadful and now Bennet’s have said you have 7 days in a letter or my policy’s cancelled. I paid in full as well. Can’t get hold of anyone.

UK government requires riders to pass their A license on a 650cc engine. Yet Bennett’s pretty much will not insure new riders on that size engine. And when they do, they quote unbelievable prices. Bennetts don’t care about the fact I have 12 years experience driving a car with 12 years of car no claims either. Rip off central.

I am impressed. The best insurance price I could find for my bike (I am a new rider and wasn’t expecting to get any sort of good deal) and also covers absolutely everything for no extra cost…If only I could get a deal like this for my car!

Also, after a week, I still haven’t received either a paper or email copy of my policy documents.

For some reason I can’t get to my policy to print off what I need, as soon as I sign in it goes through to some sales page wanting me to spend even more money and I can’t seem to go any further than that, no good trying to ring unless you don’t mind waiting for 30 + minutes or more, never had problems like this with other companies

Chose Bennetts through a comparison site because they are a well known and established name in the motorcycling fraternity. Their price was fair and competitive. They would get 5 stars if the compulsory excess was a little (lot) cheaper

Good value insurance, great to deal with my only beef is that when renewal time comes round it is always cheaper to take out a policy via the bike insurer with Bennetts rather than just renewing the existing policy. I don’t want the hassle of doing this, why can’t you just give me your best price on renewal?

I would have given 5 stars but I got a cheaper price (£60) from the compare the market web site – this cheaper price was from Bennetts !
