Key features

Theft

Bike theft is an all-too-common occurrence, especially in cities. If your bike is stolen, we'll either replace it for you, or cover the cost of replacing it.

You won't be covered for theft of any tyres or removable parts (like handlebars and pedals) unless the bicycle frame is stolen at the same time. Your bike must be secured to an immovable object using an approved lock. See security requirements for more details.

Accidental damage

Don’t worry - if you crash, you're covered. And if your parts are damaged along with the frame, they can be repaired or replaced, too.

Not covered: Damages arising from wear and tear, gradually operating causes and frost. Cosmetic damages that don't impair how your bike works, like scratches and dents.

Custom cycles

Was your bike made just for you? No problem. Just factor in custom parts when entering your bike's value and hold on to your receipts.

Tyres, accessories and removable parts are not covered unless they're damaged at the same time as the frame itself.

Multiple bikes

Have different cycles for different uses? Good news – we can cover them all.

Plus, you'll save 10% off your total price when you insure two bikes, and 15% when you insure three or more.

We will not cover any claim arising out of cycling as your occupation or profession.

Cycling in the EU (optional)

Planning a cycling trip?

For an additional premium, you can stay covered while you cycle in Europe.

Cover is available for up to 90 days per year (30 days for any one trip) anywhere in the European Union.

Security requirements

Keeping your bike adequately secured is the most important step toward ensuring that you're covered if you have to make a claim. If you haven't met our security requirements, you may not be reimbursed if your bike gets stolen. See our full security requirements >
