What Are The Different Levels Of Cover I Can Purchase?

When taking out a motorbike insurance policy, you’ll be asked which type of cover you’d like to purchase. There are three levels of cover. Here are your options:

Fully Comprehensive

This is the most extensive level of cover available. It includes third-party, fire & theft. This protects you and other motorists from any damage you cause, as well as covering medical expenses.

Third-Party, Fire & Theft

This level of cover helps you if you’re responsible for damage to other people, passengers or their property and it will cover the cost of repairs. You are also covered if your motorbike gets stolen or damaged by fire. HOWEVER, if you’re responsible for an accident, this level of cover will not help pay for repairs to your bike or any medical expenses, you will have to pay the costs.

Third-Party Only

This is the most basic level of cover you can purchase and the lowest that it legally required. This will help pay for any damage you cause to other vehicles and property. There is no cover for you or your bike. If your motorbike is damaged or stolen, you won’t be able to claim back the cost.

This is often referred to as pillion cover and this will depend on the type of policy you purchase. You’ll have to check the terms and conditions of your cover and your licence before carrying any passengers.
This isn’t usually included in standard cover. Although, a lot of insurers do offer an optional extra for helmet and leather cover. This will be helpful to have in your policy if your gear is damaged due to an accident.
Some insurance providers can offer policies which will allow you to ride any bike. This will cover you if you were to rent or borrow another bike. Read through your policy carefully as you may find that your level of cover may not be the same while driving other motorbikes.
You may find the odd insurance company that will allow this, but the vast majority will not. You may find an insurance provider who will take your NCB from your car insurance into account. Have a look around and talk to different providers before making a decision.
