Travel insurance
on: 17 Jun 18, 03:03:38
Good afternoon peeps,
I'm going to Assen for the MotoGP but taking my z1000sx instead of the street triple as it's faired and a bit more comfy long distance. I'm having problems finding travel insurance that covers motorbike riding (not racing) above 750cc.
Does anyone have any recommendations that they know do 1000cc cover as I've spent a fair while filling in details then checking small print and find it excludes above 750cc.
Many thanks
Kevin

Hi, I'm surprised about that because I thought most covered you for whatever license that you have.

It's probably of no use to you, but my Clydesdale Bank insurance covers any "two-wheeled vehicle" that you have a license for.

Thanks for the reply. I was surprised aswell. Never had an issue before. Just got it with holiday safe.co.uk. Only £15 so all done and has good amount of cover. Hopefully I don't need to use it.

Motorcycle touring insurance cover has been suspended!

Tried to get onto their site, but just get the above message.
Anyone used any other companies out there and could recommend?

I have used the post office insurance as well.  I recall going through this whole process some years ago and at that time the post office was one of a handful that covered travel by large capacity motorcycles.

I now use the cover I get from first direct that also covers motorcycle travel in Europe for my own motorcycle so long as it is insured and licensed etc

Never needed to claim on either though.

I’m planning my spring 2022 trip to Spain and, as far as I can tell, Aviva are ok with their travel insurance covering you riding a 1043cc bike as long as it is your primary means of travel for the holiday, rather than (say) a one-day local rental. Best read the small print yourself, just to be sure!
