Travel Insurance - Malaysia Motorcycle Rental
« on: March 10, 2018, 01:00:44 PM »
Hi all, hope you can help.

I'm off on a business / leisure trip to Malaysia soon and will be renting a couple of bikes. A twist-and-go for a few days to run around Kuala Lumpur and (I think) a Kwak Versys 650 for a 9 day tour around Malaysia.

I've had a search through this parish and found that both HolidaySafe and The Post Office have been recommended in the past. Both of these recommendations stem from around 2013.

Was wondering if anyone has any up to date recommendations?

I've just taken out a policy with this provider

http://www.holidaysafe.co.uk/niche/motorcycle-travel-insurance/

I can't vouch for the ability to claim and hopefully won't need to find out but cover looks good and pricing was competitive.  I'm doing track days in Spain which is covered from a medical perspective.  Not sure about Malaysia but worth a look.

Thanks Foxy,

I like the medical perspective.

My concerns were "The Post Office" have changed their travel policies in a way I dont quite understand. The wording has become confusing.

So it is nice to see that "HolidaySafe" seem to have a solid multi year policy.

Thanks Madmitch,

Not a company I've heard of before but I'll certainly give them a call in the next couple of days.

HolidaySafe have insured all my annual bike trips for last 4 years as well as a few family holidays.

Had a bit of a glitch year before last when they seemed to change some of their policies around known medical conditions but thankfully seemed resolved last year.

I will be using them to insur us both on my Honeymoon later this year. Although we will be flying AND PROBABLY NOT TOUCHING A BIKE  :003: :019:  we will be going to watch the MotoGP!  :celebrate:

I have a Liver Transplant so I have to call them each time, but I've always been covered.

Try mentioning discount code Bike5.

I was given this at Hastings on the Mayday run 5 years back but it still worked online for insuring bike trips for a good few years after.

I spoke with BeMoto.

Technically I can be covered on one of their track day policies, even if I don't get as far as the track. Remember I was looking for specific motorcycle insurance in a foreign land.

Not so sure.

However, my 3 bikes will now be insured by BeMoto. They were great to talk to. Kwaw insured, Trump and Suxx. Add as and when, no bollox fees. 50 quid per bike.

Thanks BeMoto.
