Customer Testimonials

I actually live on the mainland but often visit the island. Any time I can I try and insure my vehicle here instead of anywhere else. I have had great experiences with the employees here. Vicky Bui helped me this time when I went in. She was polite, knowledgeable, and answered all my questions. Helped me to insure my vehicle as fast and pain-free as possible. I highly recommend getting your insurance here.

I’ve had a couple bikes insured with Megson FitzPatrick and each time I’ve had to call their support centre; either for an insurance transfer, or simply to purchase or end insurance, they have been quick, simple and very friendly. Their staff know what they are talking about and they offer solid motorcycle insurance for the year at very good/competitive rates.
