What is cycle insurance?

Cycling is a cheap and healthy alternative to driving or using public transport. Specialist cycle insurance is designed to help you enjoy the ride, whilst protecting your bike against theft, accidental damage, vandalism, fire flood damage and more. All types of bikes are covered including mountain, folding, electric and road, not to mention cycling accessories. If you’re using pedal power as a cheaper alternative, you’ll likely want to make sure your bike is protected!

Cycle insurance FAQs

Have questions about cycle insurance, or not sure whether you need it to protect your bicycle or accessories? Check out our frequently asked questions below.

Do I need cycle insurance?
open

 Insuring your bicycle can be the sensible thing to do as this will ensure you’re protected against the unexpected should the worst happen. It’s also worth bearing in mind that some bicycles can be expensive to replace – so if you couldn’t afford to buy a new one, then cycle insurance could be the best option.

Do I need cycle insurance at university?
open

If you’re planning on taking your bicycle with you to university, then you may want to consider insurance so you’re not left out of pocked in the event of accidental damage, theft, vandalism and more – especially when you’re living on a student budget.

While you may already have some cover in place under your parents’ household policy, double check if and where your bicycle is covered whilst you are living away from the family home.

Is my bicycle covered under my family’s home insurance?
open

There may be times when your parent’s insurance policy will extend cover to your bike when you are living away from the family home. However, this is not always the case, so it’s important to speak to the home insurance provider to check what’s covered.

Even if cover is provided under your home insurance policy, you may find that it isn’t as comprehensive as the cover you could benefit from with a separate specialist cycle insurance policy. For example, you may not be covered on a new for old basis or when your bike is used away from your student accommodation.

Before choosing a policy, you may want to compare different insurers to make sure your bicycle will have the protection it requires.
