One of the worst kept secrets in motorbike insurance is that residents of Northern Ireland pay significantly more than the rest of the UK to insure their vehicles. Not only that, simply getting cover can be complicated, because many well-known insurers and brokers still won’t provide insurance for people living there.
Bikesure, the freethinking insurance broker, isn’t one of them. Working with several insurance companies who provide cover in Northern Ireland, it has developed policies that are not only affordable, but also specific to the individual’s needs, regardless of how unconventional these may be.
If you’re a biking enthusiast with either a classic or modified ride, finding affordable cover can be an arduous task, let alone in Northern Ireland. Bikesure provides insurance for various specialist vehicles, offering anything from classic bike cover to customised bike schemes, whatever the modification. In both cases, an agreed value option is available.
Anyone with a motoring or criminal conviction will know that getting affordable insurance is often difficult. Throughout the UK, including Northern Ireland, Bikesure offers policies specifically for convicted riders, so whatever your predicament, you can be protected.
Northern Ireland is relatively small, and some riders will want to venture further afield. Bikesure not only offers customers optional cover for riding in the Republic of Ireland, crossing the border hassle-free, but many of its policies also include European travel protection for up to 180 days.
To save time and money, Bikesure offers convenient Multibike policies with discounts. This way if you own more than one motorcycle, you can insure them all under one policy. Similarly, if you wish to be insured to ride other bikes, such as those belonging to friends or relatives, comprehensive cover to do this is also available through Bikesure.
Residents of Northern Ireland looking to insure through Bikesure can benefit through various other discounts. Riders with zero no claims bonus are always welcome; also discounts for garaged vehicles, limited mileage and extra security measures are available. Membership of an owners club can often get you a discount up to 25%. These are easy to join; sometimes you just need to sign up online. For example, if you own a Triumph, the Triumph Owners M.C.C offers membership to all UK residents.
