What customers say about us

Motorcycle insurance quote

The cost of motorbike insurance depends on a number of details about your motorcycle and you. A bike with a powerful engine will generally command a higher premium. Nevertheless, your motorbike insurance quote doesn’t need to be expensive as there are other factors that could bring down the cost of your insurance premium.

You could lower your motorcycle insurance quote by keeping it in a secure garage or locked-up when it’s not being used.

Also, being accurate with your mileage could help to reduce your premium. You’ll also be rewarded for riding safely; a clean license and a good riding record could reduce what you pay now and in the future.

Get cheaper motorcycle insurance by following these simple steps.

What kind of motorcycle insurance do I need?

The type of motorcycle insurance you need depends on the level of cover you want. We offer three levels of insurance:

The most extensive type of cover; fully comprehensive motorcycle insurance provides peace of mind for almost every eventuality. The major difference to third party cover is that you can claim for damages or losses to your own vehicle as well as others, regardless of whether it’s your fault or not.

How much will my motorbike insurance cost?

The cost of motorbike insurance can vary due to several factors. When we calculate the cost of your quote, we're assessing the risk of insuring you as a rider, looking at how likely you are to claim and how expensive it would be to pay out if you did make a claim.

We consider your riding history and the size and capacity of your bike, as well as your age and where you live, among other factors.

Extra Cover

Our legal expenses cover can help protect you in the event of an accident that isn't your fault. The cover provides up to £100,000 towards redeeming any expenses you incur throughout the claim.

We also offer personal accident cover, which could provide a one-off cash payment (up to £15,000) in the event of a more serious accident, along with our motorcycle helmet and leathers cover which protects your gear against damage caused (up to £1,500). You can also choose RAC breakdown cover to provide roadside rescue when you need it.

The additional Cover Options are provided by a number of insurers who all meet our high standards of quality and service. Terms and conditions apply to all additional cover options.

Motorbike Insurance FAQ

Yes. To ride your motorcycle on UK roads, you need to be insured. If you're involved in an accident, damage another vehicle or injure someone, having insurance will protect you from liability, and if your bike is stolen or vandalised, insurance can provide compensation. If you don't have motorcycle insurance, you risk a range of penalties such as a £300 fine, six penalty points, or being disqualified from riding your bike altogether.
