Types of bike insurance cover

What does comprehensive insurance offer?
Comprehensive cover insures against any accident that you may have, whether it’s your fault or not. This includes damage caused to your bike when it is unattended, such as a vandalism incident or a hit and run. However, whether or not it is your fault, claims can result in loss of No Claims Bonus, so check before you claim. Comprehensive cover also covers your legal liability to third parties (including damage to their vehicle or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault). The cover extends to fire damage to your bike, or damage arising out of the theft or attempted theft of your bike.
What does Third Party, Fire and Theft insurance offer?
Your legal liability to third parties is covered (including damage to their vehicle or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault). The cover also extends to fire damage to your bike, or damage arising out of the theft or attempted theft of your bike.
What does provisional insurance offer?
As younger drivers are statistically more likely to be involved in accidents, and have a limited amount of experience driving it is important that they are insured. Provisional insurance offers teenagers and young people, as well as older provisional drivers, cover until such time that they pass their drivers license. GoSkippy offers competitive quotes and low monthly premiums, especially if a more experienced motorist, such as a parent or other adult, is listed as the main driver on the provisional policy.
