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 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 licence and a good riding record could reduce what you pay now and in the future.
Get cheaper motorcycle insurance by following these simple steps.
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.
The most basic (and usually cheapest) level of motorbike insurance is third party only, which, as you would expect, provides the most limited, but essential cover. If you are involved in an accident and another person is injured or their vehicle or property is damaged, then you will be liable for the costs incurred to compensate for their losses.
The next level of cover up is third party fire and theft, which takes the basic cover of third party only and includes an extra layer of cover should your motorbike be stolen; or if it is damaged while being attempted to be stolen or catches fire.
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.
In the current economic climate, scooters and mopeds are becoming even more popular. In fact, these two categories make up almost half of the UK’s riding population! Their reliable qualities and low running costs mean we can find you a great quote that's suited to these smaller capacity bikes.
At the other end of the spectrum, Superbike riders also remain a significant proportion of the UK’s biking population, as we aspire to develop the riding skills of our racing idols for these high performance machines. Because of this, premiums for this category can sometimes be more expensive.
For those who enjoy long distance riding and choose comfort over aerodynamics, our insurance will be right up your street. If you’ve invested your time and money into one of these amazing cruisers, you’ll want to make sure you have a quality insurance policy to match.
