BASC gundog insurance.. one shot only ?!?!

Recommended Posts

We took BASC affiliate for our pup last year, as it was quite competitive, but this year on renewal we're being told that in fact, it's a "one of" and not a recurring discount, basically, we have to pay full price from then on.

Its a bit annoying, as we've been pestered with pretty good offers from the Kennel Club all the while, and we just ignored them as the BASC deal look so solid we'd be happy to continue with them, and now, we've more or less lost the opportunity of the Kennel club offers.

Anyway, that's a bit of a heads up. To be quite honest, I've *never* managed to get ANY of the disclosed discounts from BASC. The car ones are so hard to get hold on that you just give up, the dog one is basically a "bait and switch" deal. Not terribly impressed.

You whinge and moan about you went with BASC (AGRIA) but their discount has ended and how you're not impressed.

You go on and on about how you lost out on the KC (AGRIA) offer which is also only for a limited time.

Just in case you haven't yet realized AGRIA provide the policies for both companies.

Don’t moan about it it happens all the time. The insurance companies call the shots, not the association offering the deal in my experience. Just shop around as you should with any insurance and you will get a good deal

That forum is really toxic. And it's because of people like you. Well done.

Thank you, but I was just pointing out facts.

So it's totally fine for you to be toxic towards BASC while at the same time praising KC when in fact both companies are acting as agents for AGRIA and selling policies which are subject to terms and conditions set by AGRIA.

Perhaps you're just a BASC hater looking for another opportunity to have a rant.

Again thank you for your kind words, I am indeed very very proud of the things I have done. Pointing out the hypocrisy of your toxic statement is simply one of many many things of which I am proud of.

Have never used them for dog insurance as found them more expensive than rivals but I have used their vehicle discount and discount on a couple of other things and it couldn't have been easier. Literally told the garage I had BASC insurance and they just asked for the membership number. Sorted and saved me (my company rather) over £4,000.

Have just seen that the deal I got on my motor 6 months ago is even better for the new model this year. Not getting choked up about it though (much).

Same here, have saved around £5k on a new L200 twice now.  That should more than pay my membership for life I'd imagine.

Both my dogs were insured through Agria and although they may not be the cheapest price the cover is very good, having had various claims they are very easy to deal with and paid out without issue.

keep in mind, cheapest is not always the best.

I have two dogs with Agria due BASC recommendation.   This year one of the policies went up by 15% when renewal came around.   Thought this was a bit steep as I have never made any claim for either dog.

So I shopped around and found very much cheaper insurances with seemingly the same 'life' cover.   Did some digging around and found that the cheaper ones say that in the event of a claim you will be paid up to the limit of cover for the year and then the total limit will be reset upon renewal "providing that cover is offered".   In other words there is no guarantee that they  will let you continue after the annual renewal date.

After more discussions with Agria I stayed with them.
