Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between a scooter and a moped?

The main difference between a scooter and a moped is the engine size. Typically, a moped has a 50cc engine or less and a top speed of around 28mph. Both will be covered by motorbike breakdown insurance.
 
Scooters are generally faster and more powerful than mopeds. Nowadays, models can range from 50cc right up to 750cc, although mid-range 125-250cc scooters tend to be the most popular.

 

Am I already covered for moped and scooter breakdowns?

If your scooter or moped is new, you might have motorcycle breakdown cover included in your warranty or motorbike insurance. If you find you’re not already covered for a breakdown, you can arrange cover as an add-on to your moped or scooter insurance policy. Alternatively, you could take out separate breakdown cover.

What’s the difference between personal and vehicle breakdown cover?

Personal breakdown insurance covers the person(s) named on the policy, rather than a specific vehiclvehiclee. This can typically cover up to four people who live at the same address. Vehicle cover is related to the vehicle(s) specified on the policy. Again, up to four vehicles can be covered (cars, bikes or vans), provided they’re all registered at the same address.

What types of bike breakdown cover are there?

There are several types of breakdown cover. The one that’s right for you will depend on how far you intend to travel and where you might break down.

  • Roadside assistance This is the most basic breakdown cover. Your moped or scooter could be repaired at the side of the road or towed to the nearest garage, if a roadside repair isn’t possible.
  • Nationwide recovery Similar to roadside assistance, but you can choose where you and yourmoped or  scooter are taken (as long as it’s within the UK).
  • Home start If your moped or scooter won’t start at your home address or nearby, a recovery vehicle will come to your home – or within a quarter of a mile radius of it – to help you on your way. This varies between insurance breakdown providers, so check your policy.
  • Onward journey This gives you alternative transport and possibly accommodation, allowing you to continue your journey. It’s worth noting that there are also policies that include cover in Europe. Check the details so you know which countries are included.

There’s a lot to think about when choosing breakdown cover for your moped or scooter. We make the process easier by helping you compare a range of motorcycle breakdown quotes to suit your needs and budget.

What our expert says

“If you also own a car, you may be able to combine your breakdown policy to include your moped or scooter. Some breakdown providers offer personal breakdown cover for your car, moped, scooter or motorcycle under one policy. This could work out more cost-effective than buying separate breakdown insurance for your vehicles.”
