That's correct. It's to protect the scheme from claims involving inexperienced drivers. Please give us a go when ou have the NCB though and we'll aim to beat your best alternative.

UPDATE: Current savings data from Chris Knott

Hi guys, I was just looking at some MI and a couple of figures really stood out. I believe they're powerful reminders of why members should include Chris Knott when looking for car insurance quotes...

The first one is where customers have told us their existing insurer's renewal quote Chris Knott has been quoting an average of £230.12 less than their renewal - that represents a 37.12% average saving.*

Even when we compare our quotes with their supplied best quote (including those on comparison websites) it's still a worthwhile saving - an average of £54.89 less than the best available alternative (11.94%)**

If you'd like to save money on both what you're paying now and the best out there in the market make sure you include Chris Knott Insurance in the mix at quote time.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274

best,
Nick


* I compared the year-to-date total of all supplied renewal prices against the total of the CKI quotes on those and divided by the number of quotes. I included all quotes whether the customer ended up taking the policy or not.

** I compared the year-to-date total of all supplied best quotes (renewal or alternative) against the total of the CKI quotes on those and divided by the number of quotes. I included all quotes whether the customer ended up taking the policy or not.


PS. Don't forget you can enter our draw for 2x VIP tickets to the Performance Car Show at the NEC if you receive a car quote before 1 December 2016.

Recent client testimonials also reflect our money-saving ability:

"Just took out a policy with you for my new fiesta ST200 which I'm collecting in a few days time. Miles cheaper than the price Ford quoted me as part there drive away insurance and nearly £100 cheaper than I'm paying now on a fiesta ST3. One happy New customer." John74, Fiesta ST Owners Club

"Did a quote; quote came out better than any comparison site figure, and I'm now insured through yourselves! Nice to speak to someone on the end of the phone that was able to answer my questions so quickly. Great service! Thanks!" Ryanfsr, Briskoda

"Just got a quote off Chris Knott for a W202 C220 CDi and it was actually lower than all the search engines! They've been good to me in the past with my Volvo 850 and V70 T5 CD Autos so will always use them. Cheers guys :)" RGM, Mercedes-Benz Owner forum

"Chris Knott Review - Give them a go! That dreaded time of year... insurance renewal! It all started off with a comedy email from Admiral about my multicar renewal... a healthy £500 more than last year :lol: So I did the usual "new customer" thing with them and it still wasn't great... Then did the comparison site and a few better quotes came up... Then I decided to give Chris Knott a bash and see what they could do. Best decision I made! Rang their number (0800 917 2274) and quoted our CLUB CODE: MAZ-216 and had a good chat with the nice lady Rebecca on the other end. After we'd gone through all the details she gave me a pretty decent quote, competitive with the cheapest I'd already found. I did however want breakdown as well on the 2 cars and so she asked me to leave it with her and she'd email me in the morning with the best she could do. Well... I was happy to open that email! Not only had she got me the breakdown for the 2 vehicles but she'd beaten the price even more! Very happy with the service and prices and so I have taken out 2 policies with them this year... one for myself and one for my wife :) Give them a shot guys and see what they can do for you. Very helpful and you don't get pushed into a long queue to get through to a call center in a country you can't understand! Not just that but if any of you do take out a policy with our club code (MAZ-216) then the club gets some commission which will go directly into the pot for keeping this site up and running :) Let me know how you get on if you give them a go." Ross, Mazda6 Owners Club

"Easiest car insurance I have had in 40 years. Even an added mod recently was sorted with just one email and a reply within 24 hours. Awesome!" Shel, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club

Feedback about Chris Knott

Don't just take our word for it when we say we're competitive and offer great service. Here is some of the recent unsolicited feedback we've received from your fellow car club/forum members and enthusiasts that shows why you should call Chris Knott Insurance for a quote:

"Just a quick heads up that I found CKI a great company to deal with, all very polite & knowledgeable about their cover & understood about mods etc. Admiral = hard work & would not cover my Focus ST with basic mods but they did cover my modded import wrx!? Anyhow try CKI for a decent quote, very happy & feel I have made a good choice with the cover you get." taj27, Focus ST Owners Club

"I can add my own testimonial to those above - I have 6 or 7 cars with CKI and the rest with other brokers. It's fairly well known that I change cars frequently and the service I receive from CKI is always excellent. I recently changed the registration number on one of my cars; a simple 2 minute telephone call (including queue time) to CKI had it sorted and the new certificate emailed to me immediately. The cost - £0.00. Compare that to the Esure charge of £28 and Adrian Flux £25 to change a reg. no. I have two identical non-Alfa cars, the CKI premium is £280 and the Adrian Flux premium is £400. In my personal experience the CKI offering is superb." Chris, Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK

"+1 for Chris Knotts, have managed on all occasions to beat any quote I've had, even if only by £10. Excellent service too." sliced, Audi-Sport Net forum

"So after some shopping around and a few issues with AF not being able to get me monthly insurance I've gone with CK, saving me around £30 a month (works out about £200 saving)." Adam2489, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club UK

"Can I give a big shout-out to Ian Willis. Just "quoted me happy" and I'll be going ahead with your quote when my renewal arrives from current insurer." JimBob, BMW5 forum

"Spoken to Ian Willis last week for a quote. He's brilliant all the way through. No pressure at all and gave me lots of options. Asked me to wait for my current insurance renewal quote to arrive first and call back later. He said he'll take 10% off for a like for like quote. Rang back today, and lucky enough that Ian picked up my call again. All sorted now, price was a tiny bit more (added legal cover and 56% less on voluntary excess) but customer service by Ian has won the business really." veeg33, Nissan 350Z-UK.com

"A really BIG THANK YOU to Chris Knott Insurance. Renewed my car insurance today. Over the phone, no hassle, simple to do. Very Competitive Quotes (for me anyway). Bye Bye Saga" Auric Goldfinger, Briskoda

"Just swapped my insurance over to them at renewal after the great service on the phone from Kathy. Sure they were roughly £2 more expensive than the cheapest I could find anywhere else online but I'm more than happy to pay that for the excellent service. Definitely worth a try when your time comes. Oh and yes, I did quote the club code." Shumway, Mazda 6 Owners Club

"So in the post today came my renewal quote from Tesco ....Nearly double lasts year's quote (lol) what planet they on, off to the go fatblokes site and better coming up with Churchy as the main player and wayhey tesco bank ... ohh yes on there they are cheaper than a renewal (lol). Next step Chris Knott, and even better than Churchy - great deal with Recovery and Key Cover, overseas - the works and a further £20 cheaper, uk call centre to an english person and a Personal Account Manager if you want, so at the end of the month my PAM will be calling me to confirm all the details, only one downside £150 deposit which is quite hefty compared to churchy £70. Good Service Polite and very helpful." thepaws4, Mazda6 Owners Club

"Thumbs up for Chris Knott. After my disapointment yesterday, have today insured simple and quickly. Nice to have a competitive and trouble-free quote that was 50% cheaper than another insurer on here. Another job done." KevinA, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club

"Chris Knott are good. Well worth a call." Scottk, Audi-Sport net

"I've just insured my 1990 vintage 240 GL estate with Chris Knott, after a good quote from Kim. It's the second car I have insured with this company, my first is my 2006 XC70, which is also insured by CKI. I can thoroughly recommend CKI for the service, which I have found to be friendly and patient." lenjo, Volvo Owners Club

Call Chris Knott Insurance for a quote on 0800 917 2274 and mention this forum's unique code to see for yourself how much you can save and what great service looks like.

You'll also gain automatic entry in our current prize draw if you get a quote before 1 December 2016 with the chance to WIN 2x VIP Tickets to the Performance Car Show at the NEC.

UPDATE: Chris Knott's current Top 20 clubs and forums

As the year draws to a close, here are Chris Knott's Top 10 and Top 20 club/forum rankings for 2016 as they currently stand. Though of course there are still a few weeks of 2016 left and all could change!!

Remember, to feature in our Top 20 a club/forum will be producing a high number of quote enquiries AND Chris Knott will be converting a strong percentage into policies.

There's a good argument that if you drive one of the cars on the list you're more likely to save money on your STANDARD/MODIFIED/MULTI-CAR insurance when you ask Chris Knott to quote, based on recent past performance.

Chris Knott's Top 20 so far for 2016:

1. Volvo Owners Club
2. Alfa Romeo Owners Club
3. Briskoda
4. Saab Owners Club GB
5. BabyBMW .net
6. Mercedes Owner
7. Z4 Forum
8. Audi-Sport .net
9. CivInfo
10. BMW 5 Owners Club

11. Vectra C/Signum Owners Club
12. MPS Owners Club
13. Fiesta ST Owners Club
14. Kia Owners Club
15. GT86/BRZ Owners Club
16. BimmerForums
17. TT Forum
18. VWAudi Forum
19. AlfaOwner .com
20. Hyundai Coupe Owners Club

Regardless of whether you're on the list, we'd like to thank you if you've asked us to quote - we don't take the regular and steady stream of enquiries from club members for granted.

If you haven't yet tried us for a quote on your pride and joy please give us a go at the next renewal - we'd love to look after more members from this forum.

Quoteline: 0800 917 2274 - please mention your club/forum to receive the full benefit of the scheme.

Online: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote - complete brief contact details and we'll call you back.

best,
Nick

PS. Next week I'll be revealing the winner of the Chris Knott Autumn Prize Draw. One lucky car enthusiast will WIN a pair of VIP tickets to the Performance Car Show at the NEC on Saturday 14th January with all sorts of privileged access and exclusive features.

TESTIMONIALS
Five examples of recent feedback from car enthusiasts across a range of clubs and forums:

"Chris Knott Insurance all set up and running. Many Thanks." thepaws4, Mazda6 Owners Club

"It was a simple process when I switched to using them this year. They said they would beat my current renewal price by 10%. The way this was offered to me felt like it was their standard M.O." om613, Mercedes-Benz Owner Forum

"I have both my cars insured through Chris Knott ... Highly recommend them :)" chris2982, HondaKarma

"What is more impressive than great 'new customer deals' is decent renewals that compete with other 'new customer' deals... This year the renewal was good and could not be matched even with 'new customer offers' by competitors...we renewed again :0)." Dennis, Focus ST Owners Club

"They were the cheapest for me in Southampton city centre." Darkangelv2, Z4 Forum

UPDATE: Best way to get a quote from Chris Knott

Hi all, you're great at asking Chris Knott for quotes via the callback form on our website - thank you.

I just wanted to make a request though - PLEASE CAN YOU PHONE US INSTEAD if you're after an instant quote. It's the quickest and easiest process for both of us and ensures you get your special club scheme quote when you want it, at a time that's convenient.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274

Though we do respond to the web forms quite quickly, often we get an answerphone or no answer at all and then you have to ring us anyway. You can see how it's not ideal - it means we're catching you at a time that's NOT convenient.

We leave an answerphone message and follow up with an email but we don't want to miss the opportunity to give you a competitive quote through the club/forum's special scheme. Phoning us first and then only using the form as a last resort should make it easier for you to get a winning Chris Knott quote.

Thanks for your help in this - it'll work out better for both of us.

best,
Nick

PS. It may simply be that you don't recognise the caller ID when we call you - keep an eye out for our outbound number: 01424 200477.

Testimonials
More car club/forum members who are happy with their quotes from Chris Knott:

"@ChrisKnottIns many thanks for your help with insurance for my new toy! #saabclub #saab" Neal Ashwangler, Saab Owners Club GB

"Chris Knott cheapest by far even with cat back exhaust declared." Tony McKortel, SeatCupra.net

"Unbeatable Quote. Thanks again for sorting my insurance. Straightforward job. Beat my quotes from other firms and matched like for like. Rang back when you said you would and also spoke via PM on here. Can't fault the service so far. Cheers." GarryK, BabyBMW.net

"Just wanted to say how impressed I am being a first-time customer with yourselves. A very friendly and professional chap named Ian dealt with me from initial quote right through to setting up my new car policy. OK, granted you do need to provide a fair bit of info and it's the first time I can recall ever having to input details into the DVLA website to generate a 'driver code' and scanning numerous things etc but hey-ho. With all mods declared, a named driver and my protected NCB you beat the neighbours by nearly £60. I'm not one for calling other companies and although they did try and were very aware of my custom of 2 years, I was swayed to jump ship. Couldn't say no really." LordRaiden84, Briskoda

"Looks like I will get my insurance from you. Phoned today and got better quote than my renewal. Took reference number and will call back on Monday to get it done. Really was cheaper. Thanks." imtattoo80, VWAudi Forum

UPDATE: Best way to get a quote from Chris Knott
Seriously out there question, my current insurer has messed up (massively) after we were hit by another driver who sped off. details were handed over etc to insurer and a year later they admitted they dropped the ball and the offending car ended up being sold on and scrapped before they were able to see the car (yeah tell me about it) so guess what. screwed!!

We have a letter advising they messed up. But the claim remains open as a fault claim. Would you take this into account with another quote? the car is standard so no extras to insure? I dont want to call and waste someones time.

Thanks

Hi, it's for these sorts of queries it's good to have someone you can explain things to in person. Online forms won't allow you to provide detail. The claim normally has to be closed by the insurer. It may be that we can overcome it if you can provide a copy of their letter. Aside from that are you getting anywhere with them closing he claim?

Its with the financial ombudsman now, it all started in Nov2015 and has been ongoing since with a premium thats gone from 440/yr to 1k/yr... then no other insurer really wants to know the details because all they see is "open claim" . Allianz seem to expect us to fund their co<k up and pay for their solicitor when theyve already admitted they messed up, and compensated us.... TWICE... Theyve messed up twice, had 2 lots of compensation and its still bloody open.

Tbh its my wifes premium being hammered as im Trade so doesnt affect me. But shes got 8years protected NCB and been driving for 9years (nearly 10).

They still owe us back for the increased premium for 1+years

NEW CHRIS KNOTT PRIZE DRAW: Silverstone F1 Grandstand Tickets x2

Hi,

I'm excited to reveal another prize competition from Chris Knott... one that's for new AND existing customers :)

We consulted the members of all the car clubs and forums we work with when selecting the prize for Chris Knott's 2017 Spring Prize Draw.

So, the members have spoken - request a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote before close of play on Wednesday 31st May for your chance to WIN 2x grandstand tickets at the 2017 Silverstone F1 Grand Prix.

All you have to do is ask us for a quote and you'll automatically be entered for our draw to win this fantastic prize (worth over £500).

Of course, we're hoping to win something too - you as a new customer! You don't have to purchase cover in order to qualify for the draw, just receive a quote. If our cover, service and price stack up it makes sense for you to switch to the car enthusiasts' specialist.

We can quote about 30 days in advance of your renewal so even if your car insurance isn't due until late June you can still obtain a quote before the deadline.

The GP tickets naturally cover all the events of Race Day - Sunday 16th July 2017 - and we've thrown-in circuit parking for one vehicle too.

HOW TO ENTER...
Either call us (always our preferred method) on 0800 917 2274 and mention this forum's unique quote code,

or

complete contact details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote and we'll call you for the quote details (though we risk missing you and therefore you might not gain entry).

If your car insurance is due soon, pick up the phone for your Chris Knott quote.

Oh, and existing CK clients, you'll automatically gain entry too, if your renewal is due in the timeframe, when we invite your renewal.

best,
Nick

Testimonials
Yet more positive feedback received from car club members in the last few days:

"Just thought I'd say a big thank you to Chris Knott, especially Kathy, for their competitive quote for this year, but more for the speed that everything was done and dusted in. I used to work in the Insurance industry, but they never achieved service levels like this." kentphil1, Briskoda

"Saved about £180 on mine and £35 for my wife, both with superior cover to Admiral and lower excess!" Robbijay, GT86/BRZ Owners Club

"I work in retail and so realise people are quick to criticise and lack in praise when a job is done well. I'd like to say how helpful Daryl White was in renewing my car insurance policy. Within 25 minutes he'd reviewed a quote, called me back, adjusted it and sent new documents! Thoroughly happy with the service I've received, both on this occasion, a previous call on Monday (don't recall the gent's name, sorry) and with yourselves in general, this is exactly how you retain customers!"

Hi,

The BBC News website reports:
"Drivers saw their car insurance premiums rise by an average of £110 in the last year, a comparison site says. More expensive repairs and recent government changes to injury payouts pushed up annual insurance costs by 16%, according to Confused.com. It found drivers paid on average £781 on comparison sites for a comprehensive policy in the year to March 2017. Average premiums are set to rise to a record high and could pass £1,000 next year, it added. Newer vehicles have seen some of the biggest rises, because their increasingly complex electronics have made repairs more expensive...

...The Confused [dot] com research...checks more than four million car insurance quotes."


I just wanted to let you know that the Chris Knott average premium through the club insurance scheme is much lower than that reported on the comparison sites.

In March 2016, Chris Knott's average premium was less than half that at £369. This March (2017) it was £399 - just a £30 increase and still majorly more economical than £781. There's definitely something beneficial for members in using the club scheme through Chris Knott then.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please call us at renewal.

If that's before 1st June you'll also gain entry in the Chris Knott 'British F1 Grandstand Tickets' Prize Draw.

best,
Nick

See what these guys thought of our service recently...

"I've used Chris Knott both direct and through AROC and they always come up with a good deal. They don't throw a hissy fit about mods either." Steve Prill, Alfa Romeo Owners Club

"Hi Nick, just been speaking to one of your team (Kathy) she was brilliant and I am going to be insured with Chris Knott Insurance!! Great service." Elli, Saab Owners Club GB

"Thanks for that, did the quote, and it does look very interesting. My wife (who likes small print) is perusing this and we'll get back to you in a few minutes. I have to say, most efficient dealing with an insurance company, ever ;-)" buze, ZRoaster.org

You'll know we've been running the 2017 Chris Knott Virtual Show & Shine on our social media channels - the chance for members to share pics of their cars with us in the hope of winning a decent prize.

We've really loved seeing what cars members drive and from the 200 or so entries it was a tough job to pick a winner. However, I'm pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Chris Knott Virtual Show & Shine as Ashley Gratton with his MkI Golf.

Full details including the Top 5 finalists' cars here: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/news/chris-knott-virtual-show-shine-2017-winner.html

Hi all, Happy New Year!

I just wanted to thank you again if you requested a quote from us last year. And for those of you who took out cover through us we really do appreciate your custom.

I'm keen to know what prizes might interest you this year for our competitions. I was thinking about a Dash-Cam prize for one of them. Would you welcome that? Let me know.

I know we have to be there on price for you first and foremost but a competition always helps encourage members to call us to find out what that price may be.

Please do call us for a quote if your car insurance is due soon.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please mention this forum's unique code to access our special car club scheme.

We're good for standard, modified, modern or classic cars. So you can ask us to quote for all the cars in your household and receive discounts for multi-car cover, whether you bring them all at once or separately.

If you prefer us to call you please complete contact details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote and look out for a callback from 01424 200477.

best,
Nick

CK - now even more members able to save

Hi,

Further to my post last month about our DashCam Prize Draw (which is still running), here's another great incentive for you to call us for a quote when your car insurance is due...

One of our insurer partners has opened up new pricing to us. This brings greater flexibility for us and more winning quotes for you. We already sign-up a healthy percentage of members who request a quote but this will mean we should have even more success at getting you the best insurance deal.

What are you waiting for? Call Chris Knott free on 0800 917 2274 and mention this forum to access our special car club/enthusiast's facility.

Alternatively, you can request a callback at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote/?ref=DC_0118

All quotes offered before 31st March result in automatic entry to our Draw to win a Nextbase Duo HD DashCam plus 32Gb Micro SD Card (worth over £200), so get calling!

best,
Nick

PS. We'll have a new, additional, provider coming on board soon to broaden our capability and insurer panel further - more news to follow as details unfold.

Testimonials from car enthusiasts who've recently commented on our service:

"Yeah for what my experience was worth, being a young mid aged driver and having high insurance for my T5 after modding the other insurers all suddenly became an absolute headache and a nightmare with constantly waiting on the phone etc etc. Have always been a bit not sure about these guys here as I always found the comparison sites very easy. On a free day it took no time to call these guys. Spoke to some friendly member of staff who gave me a quote beating everyone else with my mods after a few mins. Was a great service so definite thumbs up." domhart10, Volvo OC

"I have been with Chris Knott for several years (had 1 year elsewhere for all my sins) and I have never had 1 issue with them. I would highly recommend giving them a call and they will do all they can to get you the best deal possible." Kev_mk3, AstraMk3OC

"Just taken my insurance with yourselves and your service was friendly, helpful and the quote process was super-speedy which was nice too. Price was the best on the market and you have given me the confidence that if I need anything you nice people will sort it for me. I was dealt with by Kathy who was great. Thank you again." patriotk11, TT-Forum

"I've been with Chris Knott for the past 18 months, I've added quite a few minor modifications to my policy and always hassle free with no charge." Darran, Fiesta STOC

"Awesome service and extremely helpful staff, would recommend 110%" Matthew G, TrustPilot
