5 NEW THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR INSURANCE


June 25, 2018

Our cover’s changed for the better. Here’s how we can help you stay even safer on the roads.

The way we’re riding is changing. New technology’s allowing us to push our bikes further than ever before. We’re using them in ways we typically haven’t previously. And the trend for upcycling is revving up.

So, with around one million of us currently on the roads and the number growing all the time, we want to make sure our policies are keeping pace with the times, which is why we’ve made some changes that give you more freedom to ride in the way you want.

Here’s everything you need to know.

 

#1 We’re insuring modified rides

Part of being a bike enthusiast is tinkering with it to make it your own. So who are we to stand in your way? We’re now insuring more non-standard modifications. Just make sure you flag them with us during the quote process.

 

#2 We’re insuring golden oldies

Not everyone wants all the mod cons. In fact, there are plenty of you out there who feel quite the opposite, choosing retro rides over the latest models. To celebrate the fact that 40 is now the new 30, we’re insuring bikes manufactured from 1977 onwards.

 

#3 We’re on hand around the clock

Flat batteries. Mechanical problems. A distinct lack of fuel stations when you need them most. These are all things that can leave riders stranded roadside from time to time. But no more. With the option to add 24-hour roadside and personal assistance, you can ride safe in the knowledge that you’re backed by unlimited call outs – for support whenever you’re in hot water.

 

#4 We’re insuring money makers

Truck drivers, chauffeurs, taxi drivers, the white van man. People have been making a living out of riding since wheels started turning. But motorcyclists have been noticeably absent from the bunch. That is, until the likes of Uber Eats and Deliveroo hit their stride and started using bike owners as quick and nimble delivery drivers. So, with your ride now an easy way to get in on the side hustle, we’re covering you whether you’re riding for business or pleasure*.

 

#5 We’re doubling new bike replacement terms

When the worst happens, we’re here to help you get back on the road ASAP. If your bike’s stolen or is written off post-accident before it turns two and has been insured with us since its first registration, we’ll sort you out with a replacement model, no dramas.
