I purchased some Gap Insurance through Duncan at Riviera for my new BMW M440!I am absolutely delighted with the service I received and also the price I paid, BMW quoted me a figure that was 5 times higher than the amount I paid Riviera for effectively the same product. So for anyone looking for Gap cover all I can say is give Duncan a ring and you won't be disappointed !!

Absolutely FIRST CLASS! I had to arrange new building insurance very quickly, after purchasing the freehold, and Tom was so brilliant. He sourced the market, and came back with a great offer, which I accepted. He was so easy to deal with, so professional, and so helpful. Very impressed with Riviera's service, and would not hesitate to recommend them. I shall definitely be using them for all my future insurance needs.

Riviera brought some calm ground into my stressful property purchase process. Tom set up a fairly priced building insurance ready for exchange of contracts. He was friendly, reassuring and easy to contact. Just what I needed. Thanks.

I have used them for some two years now for insurance on my buy to let properties and they have always sought and found the most competitive policies for me to ensure that I don't spend over the odds on the insurance I am forced to purchase. I would highly recommend the service as well as the professional way they deal with me as their customer.

Highly satisfied, very patient with me and made everything clear. They spend ages on the phone with me ensuring I had the right policy and I never felt rushed. When I had to cancel the policy when I left the trade they were equally as friendly and helpful. Top marks!

Minibus insurance is a type of commercial insurance that provides cover for minibuses used for transporting passengers, such as for schools, churches, community groups, or private hire services.
