You could be missing out if you ignore the specialist brokers (especially if your car or situation is non-standard).

You might think that you're going to get your best deal on a price comparison website but actually at Chris Knott we're just as likely to beat an online price as any other.

Different deals exist for brokers that mean we can easily compete in the market.

Price is very important and we know that's normally the buying trigger but have you also considered what service you will get for example?

WHAT TO CHECK WHEN GETTING QUOTES
When you're comparing your quotes make sure you check a few key things in addition to the price so your pride and joy really is well protected:

- Is there a contact number or address available if you have any issues or are they keeping you at arm's length?
- What's the total excess you'll have to pay for claims (compulsory + voluntary amounts)?
- What's actually included - windscreen cover, courtesy car, legal expenses?
- Have you heard of the company before or are they unknown?
- Are they UK based and therefore regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority?
- How do their admin charges for change of address/vehicle/mods/resending documents compare?
- What's the total cost (including interest) if you're paying monthly?

Give Chris Knott a try at renewal and see if we'll be your best option this year. We can explain all of these things to you in your quote so you're not buying blind.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 or leave us your renewal date at - Click Here - and we'll call you at the right time.

best,

Wow, don't they?

Yes, if that's crucial for you, or anything else is, it's wise to check before buying.

No, they assume everyone just goes for a weekend, if you want cover for longer you have to pay extra for it.
