Insurance renewal significantly lower. . . hypothetically. . .

So hypothetically. . . someone may have received their renewal notice from their current insurer. . . with absolutely no changes to the cover / bikes / details etc. . . and the premium may have decreased by approx. 220 (around 35%). . .

Now, hypothetically I've seen it increase by similar percentages but I've not seen it decrease this way. . .

Has anyone seen similar?

Hypothetically.

they may possibly have been screwing you for years and are now covering their ass in the event of a government investigation.

I have had one company quote me same as last year and then pretending to have heard me ask for a lower price and gave me one. I hadn't opened my mouth. All very strange.

You should phone them and tell them you're not happy and you want to pay last year's price or more.
