About bike breakdown cover
- Arranging your bike breakdown cover
The number of motorbikes on the road has almost doubled in the last two decades, making them one of the most popular methods of transport in the UK today. With more two-wheeled vehicles in operation, bike breakdown cover is necessary to make sure riders keep running smoothly with minimal disruption.
Choosing the right breakdown cover for your bike, moped or scooter can help you to save money and give you peace of mind if you should ever need assistance. Everything from a damaged tyre to an engine failure can potentially be sorted at the side of the road, while you can get towed to a nearby garage for any issues that can’t be sorted there and then.
You may already be offered breakdown cover alongside your bike insurance policy, making the process even easier and more streamlined. However, you may want to seek out a breakdown policy as a separate item. Either way, it’s important that you familiarise yourself with your policy documents to fully understand exactly what you’re covered for in any circumstances.
- Types of breakdown cover
When it comes to finding the right breakdown policy, you’ll need to ask yourself exactly what you want to cover. You can choose between vehicle cover that specifically applies to your motorbike or personal cover that applies to you whether you’re a rider or passenger of any bike permitted by your policy.
The level of cover you receive can also vary depending on what you want to pay for. You’ll generally get roadside assistance and recovery nationwide as standard, although this may vary from one insurer to another. On top of this, you’ll be able to choose additional extras like home start or European cover to provide assistance wherever you go.
You may also choose to add cover that can provide help with continuing your onward journey if your bike breaks down far from home. In some cases, it may be necessary for you to arrange temporary accommodation overnight at a hotel or B&B. With onward travel cover as part of your breakdown policy, you may be able to rely on your insurer to reimburse you for the cost of a room overnight.
- Do I really need breakdown cover?
There’s no obligation to get breakdown cover for your motorbike – the least you need is Third Party insurance. However, an additional policy for breakdown of your vehicle offer you the peace of mind of having a financial safety net in case anything goes wrong unexpectedly.
With a breakdown policy in place, you have a reliable service at your disposal if you should ever need it. Whether your bike happens to break down on a remote country road or by the side of a busy motorway, your cover will allow you to call for assistance at any time with no additional cost and no hassle or fuss.
If you don’t have breakdown cover in place, this simply means you’ll be on your own if you face any breakdown trouble. You may need to source a garage yourself to pick you up and carry out repairs, which will need to be paid for out of your own pocket. The ultimate aim of a breakdown policy is to eliminate the need for you to fend for yourself in a time of crisis.
