About time we had a BTSport coverage poll

@ianh said:

I was most aggrieved to received an email from BT yesterday.
Whilst the sums involved are relatively modest (for now) it still means i will have to pay £60 per year that i had not expected.

I have advised Ofcom of my concerns, whilst they dont deal with individual cases, i do think that their widespread and prolonged advertising of "free" motogp coverage was misleading could be seen as obtaining money by deception, ie tountamount to fraud.
Complaints now sent to BT and Ofcom and letter to MCN editor. Doubt it will get anywhere but good to vent!

From what I can tell, IF there is "small print" that facilitates this change, the term itself would fall under the UNFAIR CONTRACT TERMS ACT <- doubtless plenty of info on the WWW on this... And if the term is unfair/a contravention of Contract Law, the resulting advantage certainly is!!
( See above: I cut an paste the reply I had from CAB in this thread ^^^)

Good to see that you've escalated your own case; for my part, I've contacted Trading Standards (via CAB) - but I will take a pointer from you and refer to OfCom too!

The more people that voice their opinions on this, the better!

Buying Bike Insurance for First Time

Hi folks,

I was hoping you could offer some advice.
I'll be picking up my first bike on Friday and need to get insurance in place. I've gone to the usual comparison sites for some quick quotes and they all seem to be offering a range of extras, some of which I'm sure I won't need.

I'm going Fully Comp, but not sure if I should also opt for Personal Cover, Leathers/Helmet cover etc. Are these just money pits?

It would be handy if someone could give me the 'main' points that should be covered by a good bike insurance company :)

Thanks in advance for any advice.
