Classic motorbike owners can take advantage of a new excess-free insurance policy that also covers them to ride other bikes.
The new scheme, introduced by specialist broker Bikesure, also includes agreed values, plus discounts for limited mileage and owners club membership.
But it’s the cover to ride other bikes, so often excluded from classic bike policies, and the nil excess on claims that make the scheme stand out from the crowd.
Rob Balls, of Bikesure, said: “It’s a real coup for us to be able to offer this cover as it’s always been taken as the norm that you just don’t get the riding of other bikes benefits on classic policies, and to do away with the excess altogether, without the need to purchase excess protection policies, is an added bonus.”
“The classic bike rider is usually an experienced enthusiast, so we thought why not extend this benefit to them too?”
“We’re looking for the true classic bike enthusiast who cherishes their motorbike and has another vehicle for the daily ride or drive to work.”
To qualify for the scheme, bikes have to be manufactured prior to 1990, be kept in a locked garaged, and cover no more than 3,000 miles per year, with unlimited mileage if the bike was made before 1972.
Modified classics can also be covered, sometimes at standard rates depending on the modifications, as well as sports and trial bikes.
Special cover can be arranged for classic rallies, track days and off road use.
