    Cycle Insurance for travel

    Been looking at cycle insurance threads and posts. Online quotes are more than my 2018 Motorbike insurance and more than my VW Transporter.:sad: Home insurance doesn’t cover overseas travel which I hope to do and take bike with me when working. Any ideas ?

All the others are within the £2,500 limit for 'specifed' bikes so have been added to the current policy (£1k for unspecified bikes) but my Herety was insured for nearer £5k (handbuilt frame and Dura...

    Holiday insurance.

    Don't skimp! On the first day of a two week holiday in Cuba, one of our tour group looked the wrong way crossing the Malecon in Havana. Stepping in front of a car doing 30-40mph is a very bad idea. She was scooped up by friendly locals after summersaulting over the car and landing on the road...

    Insurance cost and occupation has published some data about how the proposer's job effects insurance premiums. No surprises, although coppers appear on both lists - a police cadet on the dear one and a 'supervisory officer' on the cheap one. A countryside ranger is on the cheap list because they run cheap...

    Insurance premiums for young drivers.

    My grand son passed his driving test first time this morning at the age of 17 and a half. When he called his insurance provider, he was told his premium is now £276 per month !:cursing: He has a 2016 Ford fiesta with a 1litre engine. I think this is ridiculous to punish young drivers like that...

    Hi Guys I’m thinking of buying a Bianchi Infinito CV at a cost of £4600. My other bikes are covered by my house insurance and I’ll add this one on too. Should I also take out additional insurance? I just feel that paying a lot of money for a bike I should cover it as well as I can – almost like...

    Insurance against cycle theft

    I've been looking at getting some insurance for my bikes. (Theft only not public liability). They aren't expensive really... though to me they were. I have a CUBE Aim Race MTB and just bought a Brompton B75. So the most expensive is £750. This is just for me, so only one will be out of the house...

    Family Bike Insurance

    Hi all, I recently bought my first ever brand new bike and I'd like to get it insured. Whilst I'm getting mine insured, I'd also like to get my wife and her bike insured too. It looks like lots of companies encourage multi-bike cover. However, they never give me an option to put her name on the...

    RAC car insurance taking advantage.

    OK, for the last few years Lady Byegad and I have been taking turns to insure our car, one year I'm the insured and she's the other driver. The next year the other way round. We drive almost exactly the same mileage, equaling between 48-52% of the total yearly miles. Sadly Lady Byegad has had...

    Driving licence number and insurance

    If an insurance website asks you for your driving licence number then put it in. It reduced one of my quotes from £550 to £350. I also reduced my premium again by going direct to the company's website and directly entering my details there.

    Bike Insurance...

    My household insurance policy came through for renewal. To impress me with their newest and best price they found a cheaper deal this year. Great. However, going through the small print there was no longer any cover for the 6 bikes at Chez HC. Twits! My opportunity to shop around. Separate...

    Another home insurance renewal rant.

    Been with Co-op for years even though they have pushed prices considerably higher each year. Final straw......this renewal is up by 30%. No claims for many years etc so I phoned them to discuss it and tell them "you are forcing me to look elsewhere"...... no explanation but sorry, thats the...

    Which 3rd party liability cyclist insurance?

    Cycling liability insurance. This is something I have been thinking about having for years really but have never been 100% convinced about the need for it, given that cycling is really only an extension of walking or running as a means of leg powered transportation and I certainly wouldn't...
