When it comes to finding the cheapest insurance for your motorcycle, comparison websites have made it easy for us bikers to get the cover we need.
But did you know that the majority of comparison websites all use the same quoting engine?
This quoting database is administered by Vast Visibility Ltd who are the company behind The Bike Insurer. Because motorcycles are a niche product in the world of insurance, it makes sense for the big household names to re-badge The Bike Insurer as their own system rather than spend millions of pounds developing their own.
But they don’t like to shout about it, as they’d prefer you used their system and not The Bike Insurer’s, so they can access your data and earn a fee when you take out your policy.
Many of these websites claim to offer discounts and deals that are only available to their loyal customers. In reality, even some of the biggest names in the UK operate using the same technology as smaller, independent companies – meaning that the deals they offer you might not be quite as unique as you first thought.
Do you really need a cuddly toy or mid-week cinema tickets when you take out a motorcycle insurance policy? You probably just want the cheapest cover from a reputable provider, which is why a dedicated motorcycle comparison site is what most bikers go for.

Price comparison websites are the modern-day brokers. Back in the day you used to call your broker to get a quote, they would manually retrieve a quote from a few insurance companies that they were signed up to. They’d then offer you the best quote and they’d take a commission from each policy they sold.
With over 40 different insurance companies on The Bike Insurer’s panel, you don’t need a broker and you’re sure to get the cheapest quote from an insurer you can trust.
