This time last year I took out CTC travel insurance with the intention of covering my bike while abroad. Bicycle loss is specifically stated in the (white) policy booklet but on renewing the policy today I have discovered that it was not covered at all! Bike insurance was my main reason for choosing CTC rather than any other company. You have to check that bike loss is itemised on the yellow validation certificate. Noone was answering the phones at Citybond Suretravel yesterday either. Overall lousy service I reckon.
