What can Motorbike Insurance cover?

GoSkippy can present you with a limited range of cheap motorbike insurance policies that still cover all your needs.

We have three levels of insurance cover for your bike:

Fully comprehensive cover icon
Fully Comprehensive

Gives you the same cover as Third Party Fire and Theft, plus you’re covered for your vehicle and injuries in the event of an accident, whether it’s your fault or not. This includes damage caused to your bike when it’s unattended, such as a vandalism incident or a hit and run.

Third party, fire & theft icon
Third Party, Fire and Theft

Offers slightly more than the legal minimum level of cover. TPFT gives you everything you get with third party only. It also covers fire damage to your car, or damage because of a theft or attempted theft of your car. You are not covered for damaged to your own car in the event of an accident that was your fault.

Third party icon
Third Party Only

This is the most basic cover you can buy, legally. It means your legal liability to third parties is covered, including damage to their vehicle or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault. If your car is damaged in any way, this isn’t covered.

Like car insurance, it’s a legal requirement to have motorbike insurance if you ride a motorcycle on a public road in the UK. Motorcycle insurance makes sure that if your bike is stolen, involved in an accident or damaged, you can recover the costs.
