Following the announcement from the Government on Sunday 10th May, when lockdown restrictions were eased in certain parts of the United Kingdom, we are receiving significantly high volumes of enquiries throughout each day and some customers are experiencing long wait times in being able to contact us.
We want to assure you that we are doing the best we can to increase our capacity to reduce these delays and provide the service levels that both you and we expect.
Given these circumstances, we’d like to ask that you only get in contact if it is critical to do so and - don’t forget - you can still access your latest documents by registering or logging in through MyAccount. You can also continue to get new quotes and buy motorcycle insurance at Bennetts.co.uk.
We are operating our usual opening hours of 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday, Saturday 9am to 5pm and Sunday 10am to 4pm.
