Frequently thought questions

What types of motorbike breakdown cover are there?

There are two types of motorbike breakdown cover – personal and vehicle. Personal policies cover the named passenger(s), rider or driver of any vehicle that meets the policy requirements. This can cover up to four people who live at the same address. And this can be a mixture of cars, vans or bikes.

Vehicle policies cover the vehicle(s) specified on the policy, and up to four vehicles can be covered (as long as they are registered at the same address). This can also be a combination of cars, vans or bikes.

What levels of cover are available?

The levels of breakdown cover include roadside assistance, roadside recovery, home start and onward journey. Your cover can also include local, national or Europe* depending on how far you plan to travel.

1. Roadside Assistance: The most basic cover. A recovery vehicle will attempt to fix your motorbike at the side of the road. If this is not possible you will be towed to the nearest garage

2. Nationwide Recovery: Almost the same as roadside assistance, however you get to choose the destination you’re taken to (anywhere in the UK)

3. Home Start: With this type of policy, if your motorbike won’t start then a recovery vehicle will come to your home, or within a quarter mile radius of it (this distance varies by provider)

4. Onward Journey: This cover could offer you reimbursement for the costs of temporary accommodation if you breakdown - a hotel room, for example. It could also cover you for the hire of a replacement vehicle, or medical assistance

*If you do choose cover for Europe, remember to check the details of your policy so you know which countries are covered and the situations that might or might not be included.

Should I get breakdown cover with my bike insurance?

Some insurance providers may offer breakdown as part of their policy, while others may give you the option to buy it as an optional extra. But if you didn’t take out motorbike breakdown cover when you bought your bike insurance, it’s pretty easy to buy on its own.

What happens if I don’t have breakdown cover?

If you don’t have breakdown cover and things go wrong, you might need to ring round to find a willing friend or local garage to collect you. This could involve paying the garage a fee and you might have to find alternative transport to continue your journey.

Why compare the market?
