It has come to our attention that some forum members think we are linked with one of the other insurance providers out there because a name similar to ours appears against transactions on their bank statements.

So we wanted to make it clear, for the avoidance of doubt, that there is NO commercial relationship between us and any of the other providers on car club forums.

Actually there is good natured competition between all the providers on the forums and we come across each other often. But we are all completely separate, so you should always call Chris Knott Insurance for a quote and shouldn't think you've heard our quote just because you've called one of the other firms.

Chris Knott's quoteline is 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477. Please quote your unique club code to make sure you receive the full benefit.

***UPDATE: 2015 with CHRIS KNOTT INSURANCE***

Happy New Year to you all.

Thanks so much for your custom in 2014, especially in response to the Chris Knott Prize Draws at the tale end of the year. I'm pleased to announce that December's winner was Mrs D Woodfin from Bolton. She bagged herself a £100 Amazon Voucher and all she did was ask us for a quote.

During the early part of this year we're aiming to start negotiations with the companies on our insurer panel to alter the scheme access criteria, allowing us to quote competitively for even more car club/forum members. We'll keep you posted as things develop.

As things stand many car club/forum members are saving money every day but we'd obviously like more members to be able to benefit from calling Chris Knott Insurance. In just the last week we've signed up another 12 forums - forums who've heard good things about Chris Knott and want their members to be able to access great car insurance deals too.

If you'd like us to quote when your modified or standard car is due for renewal please call the Chris Knott Club Line on 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 and mention this forum to receive the full benefit.

Remember, if we couldn't beat your quote before the reason may now have passed, especially if you were just a bit too young for the scheme when you called us. Please include us again in the mix this year.

best,
Nick

Calling all VxON members!!

As a car club/forum member you could save money on your standard/modified/multicar insurance when you ask Chris Knott to quote.

The current sign-up rate under our special scheme for car club members is 45% - that means we win the business on almost every other quote offered. It means we're regularly beating the likes of Admiral, Direct Line, other brokers and online price comparison sites too.

It also means you've got a great chance of getting your best quote by giving Chris Knott a call. Why not give us a try this year and find out how much you could save by switching to the club's approved provider, Chris Knott.

I'm paying for both cars what I was just paying for the v70r p2 last year, so it worked out good for me." Ettienne, Volvo Performance Club UK

UPDATE: **Winners all round...**

£500 WINNER
Congratulations to Mr B Windeatt, a member of car club forum MG-Rover.org, who won our £500 competition last month. All he had to do was call for a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote to be entered into the draw. Now his cheque is on it's way.

WINNING QUOTES FOR MEMBERS
As for our special club car insurance scheme, this morning I asked our Motor Supervisor where we stood against this month's target. She reported that we're almost at 50% already after just the first week of the month's trading.

Thanks to everyone who is asking us to quote for their car insurance at the moment. Feedback has been coming in thick and fast. I normally post a few examples from recent days but this time there are so many that I'm having to choose a selection rather than all of them. It has really kicked off and I'm glad we're helping so many car club members to save money as well as providing good broker service.

Please call us if your car insurance is due soon and mention this forum to access the special car club member scheme and maybe we'll be your best option this year too.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 (01424 200477 for mobiles)

Feedback about Chris Knott Car Insurance from happy car club/forum members whose business we've won:

"I have just taken a policy a out with these guys and they beat my cheapest quote by 10% and may I say the service was top class. I personally was looked after by Kathy who was very helpful and polite. Can't recommend enough." YamYam, FiestaSTOC.com

"Looks like I'll be taking a policy through you guys. Far cheaper than what my renewal is through my current company!" Ant21, Astra Owners Network

"RS3 insurance time is just around the corner, so seeing as we insured the TT with them, thought I'd go to Chris Knott Insurance to see what they could do...... Emailed Nick yesterday, had a call today and went through everything, job done, they have literally halved what Admiral's renewal quote was. When the van is due in February I shall be calling them up for that too... It's nice to see an insurance specialist actually deliver a good service and save us money. Too many promise good rates on high performance cars but never seem to get close to 'normal' insurance companies quotes. They also gave me £20 off for already having a policy with them..... And being an Audi-Sport.net member....." Veneeringman, Audi-Sport.net

"They smashed my renewal and beat my cheapest quote. It saved me £232 (Jan). A good way towards taxing it for 12 months." PaulRS3, Audi-Sport.net

"Took an insurance policy out with you over the weekend. Really happy with the service and really chuffed with my quote. Cheapest out of everybody I tried. Thanks." AdamJonezy, Briskoda.net

"Just got my girlfriend's TT insured with you guys today - gave you a quote I'd got from Confused and you guys managed to beat it by over a £100 :thumbs: Girlfriend is a happy bunny :)" chirag1988, 350z-uk.com

"Could I just add Nick, that I had exceptional service by a lovely lady called Kathy, very polite and helped me with my questions regarding my quote this evening with a competitive price. Please pass on this feedback!" Dean, ClubPolo

AND THE WINNER IS...

Very many congratulations go to Mrs M Goffe from Portsmouth who won the Chris Knott Triple Supercar Prize Draw - just for getting a quote. When I spoke to her she was really excited about the prize - a proper car nut by her own admission.

Mrs Goffe is linked to Alfa Romeo Owners Club and she got a great quote on her car insurance.

If your car insurance is due in the coming weeks please do give us a call and we'll do all we can to win your business. The insurers on our panel are looking for good, solid car club/forum members like you.

Why not give Chris Knott Insurance a call on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 which is currently cheaper for mobiles).

best,
Nick

PS. The best advert for our service that we can give you is the feedback of your fellow car club/forum members so here are the comments we've come across in the last couple of weeks. Of course, price is important but it's not the only benefit of using Chris Knott that people have appreciated and mentioned:

"They are a good place to try. They arranged my insurance for me. Good communication and very helpful. :)" veilside z, Nissan 350z UK

"Just done my renewal with these guys, my new policy starts Friday. They were an amazing £245 cheaper than Axa. I've just paid £390 for a 2010 2.0 dci Laguna Dynamique Tom Tom" jplant1981, RenaultForums

"Chris Knott quoted me nearly HALF of what I was quoted elsewhere!" JackW, Civinfo

"Thanks to Chris Knotts both my cars will be on the road from the 1st June. The 1.4HDI Peugeot 206 and the Astra 2.0CDTI both fully comp both with my wife on them (2 years driving). £730 all mods declared. I did a quick price comparison before taking the policies out and I was looking at £658 for just the Astra and £495 for the Pug so I'm very happy to have saved a small fortune for 5 mins on the phone." Russell White, Facebook

"Just renewed my insurance with these guys. FANTASTIC SERVICE, BRILLIANT PRICE & INCLUSIVE OF ALL MY MODS. Thanks Kathy at Chris Knott Insurance. It was a pleasure to deal with you. Mods Declared: H&R RARB, BLUESPARK tuning box, TONY BANKS S/S exhaust. PRICE £295 inc courtesy car, windscreen cover, legal cover. Excess £200. My previous insurer wouldn't cover the mods. Good to be able to sleep at night." vRSforever, Briskoda

"Got a quote yesterday for my A2, I'll be taking the policy out when I ring tommorow, beat my renewal by 10% and very efficient service." FrankBullitt, C4 Owners forum

"Well you were the best for me this year, thanks !!!!" james-st, Focus STOC

"Big thumbs up to the girls at Chris Knott for the quality service I received from them. I saved just under £100.00 compared to my existing Insurer from here as well as additional benefits including my Mountune and KMS Thunderstorm. Although I always call around I was gobsmacked at the differences between the various companies advertised on this forum so worth doing." sparkymarcopolo, Focus STOC

"Just to let you know Kim sorted out my policy today. She was very helpful and I'm very pleased with the result. Much better than my renewal quote. Cheers." BobLoblaw, Focus STOC

"They beat the best price I was quoted on Confused, and also the cost of paying monthly was far lower. It's also quite nice to speak to someone in the same country, and quite often the same person when phoning for any reason." danhans42, Audi-Sport Net

"I had a superb quote from you guys last week. Will most likely be taking it up in a day or 2." Tinkerbell, Astra Owners Network

"The test of a good broker is how good their service is when it comes to a claim - unfortunately I've had cause to test this and I have to say that Chris Knott have given excellent service. Highly recommended in all aspects of their service." actd, Juke Owners Group

"I've just taken out my Jag insurance with CKI as they beat my current insurer and I kept the same benefits but got my excess down a bit:)" Cooky, JagInfo

"I recently got a quote from Chris Knott declaring every single alteration I have done on the car plus the turbo and it was cheaper than compare the market with no mods." jonward89, Hyundai Coupe OC

Guess which clubs/forums feature in Chris Knott's Top 20...

Chris Knott Insurance specialises in looking after the insurance needs of car enthusiasts, working for the members of around 200 car clubs/forums across the UK.

We've compiled our Top 20 clubs/forums for the first half of 2015. The results are based on a combination of the number of quotes requested by the club, the number of new policies sold and then the % of quotes converted.

If your club features it means you're more likely to save money on your standard/modified/multicar insurance when you ask Chris Knott to quote because you're very active with us.

If your club doesn't feature it's probably because the enquiry levels themselves are low - get asking us to quote and you could feature next time around!!

As car club members generally look after their cars better than the average driver, the insurers on our panel allow us to be a bit more flexible in our pricing and respond to your best alternative quote rather than a rigid computer calculation to win the business.

This is currently working best for members of these forums:

THE CHRIS KNOTT TOP 20

1. Alfa Romeo Owners Club
2. Volvo Owners Club
3. Saab Owners Club
4. Briskoda
5. CIVINFO
6. Z4 Forum
7. Mercedes-Benz Owner
8. Audi-Sport.net
9. BabyBMW.net
10. MR2 Owners Club

11. Fiesta ST Owners Club
12. MPS Owners Club
13. UK Passats
14. MG-Rover.org
15. Focus ST Owners Club
16. Civic Type R Owners
17. VR6 Owners Club
18. AlfaOwner.com
19. UK Saabs
20. Astra Owners Network


Thanks if you've already asked us for a quote. If you haven't yet, please do call us when your renewal falls due and include us in the mix of companies you get your quotes from.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477 - please mention this club/forum to receive the full benefit.

Nick

These club members are happy with their recent quotes:

"Just renewed mine again this week and it was cheaper than anywhere else I went to. Declared my mods too and changed my address with no cost. Brilliant." JackW, Civinfo

"Just spoke to a lovely lady called Kathy, and they got my quote down from £298 with Post Office to £200 all in. Money Supermarket were offering me £194 online, with a supposed £0 excess....via Esure/Sheila's Wheels. That I find hard to believe, and having been burnt before on these enticing offers (once they have you, they then load everything on - windscreen, legal, business use, etc). Kathy got me a great deal with what I wanted, £100 excess and all the other bits included!" jodonut99, Dacia Forum

"So far so good! Not only did they beat my renewal but they beat the lowest quote on the comparison website by a whopping £70. Saved over £200 on my renewal quote. Content of insurance seems great also. Hopefully I won't need to use them but hope all is well if I do! Thanks CK!" Watsona6, Briskoda

"Just insured my 530i with Chris Knott - they were £70 cheaper than my renewal cost from Admiral and beat the cheapest quote I could find anywhere else by £20, can't argue with that :) Kathy was very friendly and helpful on the phone and called back straight away when I was cut off by a thunder storm so I didn't have to go through all the menus and questions again, which was nice." lufbramatt, BMW 5 Series forum

"Just renewed my policy yesterday with CKI. Heres to another easy amd cheap 12 months" Jamie, Fiesta OC

"Big thanks to Rebecca at Chris Knott - having moved to an even more dodgy postcode my previous brokers wouldn't entertain renewing. Chris Knott matched me up to my previous insurers with the same cover as before. Excellent friendly service, and reminded me to get the rest of my documents sent in when I'd obviously forgotten!" Rebel Rebel, Volvo Performance Club UK

"Got my renewal from CKI at £800 which is cheaper than last year by £60. Shopped around online and got a quote for £640 so I thought I would have to leave CKI this year. A phone call to Milton and a few emails later he got back to me and said my insurance company will match the quote like for like for £640 aswell. All in all Milton just saved me £160. Calls centre are friendly and more than happy to help you and English based which is a big bonus. Here's to another year with @ChrisKnottIns :D:D:D" davidm5575, Fiesta OC

They say that if you wait long enough everything comes back into fashion. That's certainly what's happened with 0800 freephone numbers as, since 1st July, 0800 calls are now FREE on all mobiles as well as landlines.

We'll continue to advertise the Chris Knott geographic number (01424 200477) alongside our freephone number for a little while yet but you can start using our 0800 917 2274 number from your mobiles with immediate effect.

We look forward to your call if your car insurance is due for renewal soon.

You can use the same 0800 number for our Breakdown Cover, GAP Insurance and Home Insurance too.

best,
Nick

TESTIMONIALS
These guys called us and received great savings in the last few days:

"Year after year beaten all other quotes. This year managed to drop my renewal by nearly £150 and beating the competition! 5*" David A Dodgson, Facebook Review

"I'd like to take some time to thank Chris Knott Insurance for beating my renewal quote of £1554 by £150+. I've had my licence for over a year but didn't get insured straight away, so for 1 year's no claims around my postcode, that was a super saving. Even the choice of paying monthly was low, my original provider would have been in the 2k mark if I chose to pay monthly! Hopefully next year you will do the same and save me big £££. Thanks to Nick for setting this up :good:" Connolly3000, R32OC

"You guys just beat the cheapest quote with an insurer I've never heard of on GoCompare, with a decent named company and with my other half on the policy. Well pleased with that outcome. :)" scruffy_ Type R Owners

"3 years in a row now I've not had to move insurers." beckiejmc, Astra Owners Network

"I switched to them this year.. Beat all quotes I got plus offered more extras like 'Driving Other Cars'... hopefully same again next year" Thom89, Astra Owners Network

"I switched to you guys this year and you saved me over £300 compared to my renewal! Let alone the other quotes I had got." Ant21, Astra Owners Network

"Already have my car with CK, but wanted to see if I could get SWMBO's car cheaper when her renewal came around, CK beat it by £25. But then the mrs did some comparison sites and beat that by another £20. I really wanted her to go with CK, but thought "its already £45 less than her original renewal with her old company, the £25 off is probably as good as they can do".....but Ian had a look and managed to knock off a further £5 from the cheapest quote we found! :clap: So that's 2 cars (and another friend) all with Chris Knott. Thanks for the great service guys!" robt100, Briskoda

UPDATE: a note about competitiveness

Looking at the YTD figures Chris Knott Insurance has won 38% of all new quotes offered during 2015. That's really good and means we're frequently beating the best rate that members can find anywhere else.

And, if you thought that was just a ploy to attract new clients and then hike the rates in year 2, you'd be wrong - we keep 82% of policies at renewal. This is because we try to offer consistent pricing (as long as there have been no claims or other changes during the year). We're all about trust and long-term relationships, not wildly fluctuating quotes.

Please give us a call if your insurance is due soon and we'll do all we can to find you the best deal - sometimes that involves using your best alternative quote to negotiate with the insurers who are vying for your business.

To find out how much you could save with Chris Knott you should call 0800 917 2274 (now FREE for mobile phones too).

If you call before the end of September we'll also enter you for our current prize draw to win £150 mods/parts/accessories of your choice - see our other posts for details.

best,
Nick

TESTIMONIALS
Feedback about Chris Knott's prices and service, gathered in just the last week...

"Just wanted to give a shout out to all the people at Chris Knotts, not only did they beat my renewal quote but also improved on the offerings, and that was including the fact my previous best had an extra 10% off for my dashcam! Top knotch service and an unbeatable price, thanks guys and gals!" spikedog, MPS Owners

"Well after the hunting and chatting to a few folk, then receiving my renewal quote from Sheila's Wheels which has mysteriously jumped up £100 without any mods declared. I called Chris Knott. Had a chat with the lovely Cathy and taking into consideration the mods that have and are being done got a quote of £200 less than Sheila's who were very concerned about the mods and really did not really understand the mod issue. Hastings jumped dramatically when I mentioned the mods especially the uprated front brakes going on next month so I dropped them out. All in all I have a much better policy, declared mods, better excess and other addon's for £440. Which when you consider my Coupe is parked on a London residential street at home is not bad." Shel, Hyundai Coupe OC

"Just changed my car and had a pleasant and effortless time on the phone doing it. As I spoke the lady was simultaneously emailing my new documents over. Premium should have gone up a bit but no charge, swapped my GAP insurance over to my new car as it had over two years to go and all for a modest £15 admin fee. Got off the phone with all new document printing out of my printer and a smile on my face as I was braced for spending out £100 or so. Highly recommend." dagdave, CMax OC

"I'm with Chris Knotts myself now since there's a fair chunk of mods on the car these days. Think it was Cathy I spoke to as well when I called, pleasant and no faffing around :) Well, no faffing at their end, I called back about 3-4x as kept remembering more mods." Lexo, Hyundai Coupe OC

"You beat my previous insurer by £200 with the modifications declared and so easy to deal with. Many thanks." Sherri Joyce, Facebook

"ALSO a HUGE thanks once again from me! Did a shop around with another company, they sent me [their] quote cheaper, Knott were sent this quote and matched (even beat it by £20), so this is the FIRST TIME in over 16+ yrs of driving I've ever paid for a policy in one go! Very happy again. Cheers guys." vwnutant, UKPassats

"Rang you up today and you beat my best quote so I insured through you. Thanks." Outofthi5world, Briskoda

You can now save even more money if you switch to Chris Knott UK Breakdown Cover before 1 Dec!

On 1st November (yesterday), the Chancellor increased the amount of tax you have to pay as part of your insurance premiums. The good news is that we're continuing to offer our £5 discount on comprehensive breakdown cover until 1st December - normally £59.50 for a single vehicle - AND WE'RE ABSORBING THE TAX INCREASE TOO.

Here's the link if you'd like to Request a Breakdown Cover Quote online (ignore the advertised price on that page!). Alternatively, please call us on 0800 917 2274 and follow the 'CAR' options.

Cover includes: Homestart, Roadside Assistance, Recovery, Overnight Stay, Onward Travel, 24hr Hire Car, Relief Driver and Message Relay - and there are NO 'age of vehicle' restrictions.

The nearest equivalent cover with the AA costs £155 and the RAC £124.

Get your cover today - you'll benefit from this limited-time offer of a price-freeze PLUS our extra £5 discount.

Arrange cover now before the winter kicks in, before the tax increase and to benefit from the extra discount - call us FREE on 0800 917 2274 or visit https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/rescue to purchase online.

Ignore the advertised price at the top of the web page - your discount will be applied to your quote and you'll still pay just £54.50 for a single vehicle. Get in before the price MUST increase on 1 Dec.

best,
Nick

PS. Multi-car breakdown cover is also available - receive the price-freeze and the discount on this too. Phone us on 0800 917 2274 (all calls are FREE, even from mobiles) or complete a quote and buy online - Multi-car UK Breakdown Cover.

WIN £100 with Chris Knott Insurance in November...

Continuing our monthly offers to encourage you to pick up the phone for a quote on a car we don't yet insure, this month we're offering a £100 Amazon Voucher to one lucky caller.

Simply request a quote in November (for a policy starting in November or upto 30 days ahead) and we'll enter you for our prize draw.

Think what you could buy on Amazon with your £100. You can spend it on yourself or maybe use it to purchase Christmas gifts for loved ones - offset the cost of Christmas.

To request a quote, you should call us FREE on 0800 917 2274 and mention this forum. If you prefer, you can Request a Car Quote online. We look forward to helping you save money.

Insurance Premium Tax - the tax you pay as part of your premium - increased on 1 Nov so you may see an increase in your renewal from your current provider. Remember, we're looking to beat your best alternative so give us a call when their figure comes in. We'll try to reduce your premium and we'll automatically enter you for the draw - just for calling.

best,
Nick

PS. October's prize winner will be announced soon - someone's won a Karcher K2 Pressure Washer!

*******************************
DOING THE BUSINESS FOR CAR CLUB MEMBERS...
These club members have liked our service and our quotes recently:

"I have just transferred my XFR insurance to Chris Knott to do. Admiral quoted me a whopping £661 for renewal and reduced it to £440 when I phoned them. Online the best I had was £380...including legal and Chris Knott beat it as an introductory offer. £368.50 - Great deal and great service. Thanks." griff, XFForum

"Chris Knott actually gave me the most competitive quote this year, beating my renewal and quotes from all the other 'performance' insurers out there!! So I am now a Chris Knott customer! Thanks Chris Knott :)" Johnny 5, TypeAccord

"I phoned Chris Knott today before I phoned my usual insurers. '54 beetle, 1776cc, fully comp, UK Recovery, agreed valuation, me the wife and my 24year old son. £160. Saved me at least £60." Baz54, VolksZone

"Just insured my Sportage with CKI this year - they cut £645 off last year's price with another insurer, so I'm more than happy so far!" Therkim, KiaOC

"Renewed through Chris Knott again this year. Got straight through to an advisor, as with the couple of calls I needed to make to them during the expiring policy. I'm now covered by an insurer I know has looked after relatives needing to make a claim, at the best price I could find from any provider. They have always been quick and helpful each time I've called, showing you can still get good quality service with competitive quotes." Rabbut, A1 Forum

"All sorted and renewed. Awesome service as always!" Deacon, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club

According to the British Insurance Premium Index, car insurance premiums have again risen during the third quarter of 2015 - this time by 4.8%. The index quote has increased to £569 (a rise of nearly £26 over the three months ending 30th September).

I'm pleased to say that because we attract safer drivers, such as car enthusiasts like you, the Chris Knott average premium currently sits at £337, some £232 lower than the index.

But it's not just cost savings that Chris Knott offers...

UPDATE: NOVEMBER WINNER

Thanks to all those who requested a car insurance quote from Chris Knott during November. All quote requests received during the month were automatically entered into our November prize draw to WIN £100 Amazon Voucher.

I'm pleased to announce that Mr S Presgrave from Kent was the month's winner. Congratulations go to him! His voucher will be sent out in the coming days but there's an interesting thing about this winner: he is an existing client who asked us to quote on an extra car in his household. So, not only did he win the voucher, he obviously saved money on the quote (because he went ahead with the policy) which included a loyalty discount of £20 on top of any other saving we were able to find for him to win the business.

If you're a Chris Knott client you too will receive our loyalty discount when you bring extra cars to us that we don't already cover for you.

If you're not yet a Chris Knott client, why not call us for a quote when your car insurance renewal falls due. Don't forget, if you request a quote during December for a policy that's due within 30 days, you could WIN 2x 2016 MotoGP tickets for Silverstone (all 3 days) - see our other post on the forum about this.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274

best,
Nick

PS. We've already reached 50% of December's target in just the first 5 working days of the month! This is because we've got some great rates available for car club/forum members. It's worth you calling.

PPS. Check out the post in our section about our current Breakdown Cover offer too.

**********************************************************

Some of the RECENT FEEDBACK on Chris Knott from the car club community:

"This year, I took the best quote I had and asked Chris Knott to beat it, which they kindly did. I think that method would work with anyone." JaceMindu, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club

"I had a similar experience with these guys, they undercut the premiums on 3 of our cars by 10% and now the 4th car by £30 on the renewal. If it continues we will be using them for a long time!" bluestreak56, Z4-Forum

"We bought our first Z4 at the weekend (a weekend fun car!) and I completed my normal checks of the various comparison sites. As I already have our main family car in my name we decided to register this under my wife's name with her as the main insured. She hasn't had a car insurance policy for 3 years so no NCB although a named driver. I spoke to the very helpful Rebecca who still managed to beat our lowest quote by £20. A small saving but I would rather £20 in my pocket than an insurance company's! Honestly I didn't expect them to beat the comparison sites so I was pleasantly surprised. Great service and I will be getting a quote on our Audi when it is due to renew." onenil, Z4-Forum

"I've just insured with Chris Knott and mentioned I was from the 350z forum so hopefully that was recorded. They were able to beat my previous best quote from G********* by £30 so I took them up on it and so far so good, I even got a callback when requested too :thumbs:" Sargara, 350Z Forum

"Just taken out my insurance with you guys, really easy talking to Kathy (last month) and then Rebecca today, and they actually know what mods are! Brilliant." Mark-in-Stoke, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club

"Great service and price. New quote was only £20 higher than last year's quote and again they were the cheapest after I did some comparing, so happy bunny for another year. Try them out - got nothing to lose and everything to gain!" Imran, VWAudi Forum

BREAKDOWN COVER - DISCOUNT EXTENDS TO NEW PRICES

OK, so 1st December has passed and we had to finally reflect the government's increased Insurance Premium Tax in the cost of our Breakdown Cover. However, there is still some good news - my bosses have agreed to extend our £5 DISCOUNT offer until the end of February 2016 so you can still save money over what should be a full price of £63 for a single vehicle.

The result is that you can arrange 12 months' comprehensive UK Breakdown Cover with Chris Knott this winter for just £58. Multi-car options are also available at a discounted rate.

See posts above for the extent of the cover.

You can buy over the phone by calling 0800 917 2274 and following the 'car' options or get a quote and buy online at Chris Knott UK Breakdown Cover.

Make sure you're not left stranded this winter. Arrange cover today.

best,
Nick

PS. Don't forget our December prize draw - the chance to WIN 2x 2016 MotoGP Silverstone 3-day tickets - just for requesting a genuine car insurance quote. See our other posts in the forum.

Is there still an age restriction on SRi models? I'm thinking of quoting with you guys in a couple months when my renewal is due but I don't think I am old enough.
