From humble beginnings the modern bicycle has developed greatly and is now an ever more complex and expensive machine. Cycling is becoming increasingly popular for leisure, fitness and business. As the cost of fuel rises, more of us are turning to cycling as a healthier, more economical and greener way to travel. Bicycle insurance policies are normally far cheaper than for a car or motorbike for obvious reasons, however you may find the risk to your bike is higher, with thousands stolen across the UK every year.
Cycle insurance policies are not mandatory, but more of us are considering taking out specialist cycling policies. Sometimes bikes can be covered on home insurance policies, but, if the bicycle costs more than a few hundred pounds, the cover might be limited. There is the option for cyclist's liability insurance and the bike policy will have been designed specifically for the needs of cyclists rather than as an add on.
The partners on our site are specialists in this niche insurance - E&L offer many kinds of leisure related insurance and have a great reputation for well-designed policies. Endsleigh's background is in the hotbed of cycling, the student market, although they have long been offering other products, such as their cycle insurance policy featured here. Sportscover Direct offer a travel insurance policy which can be tailored for your specific cycling requirements with many options that can be added on.
Another option available for our customers, is a panel of specialist cycle insurers, where on completion of the quote through our associates Quotezone, up to five insurers will contact you and be able to offer competitive quotes for you to compare to any other results you have received elsewhere.
