About Bicycle Insurance

No matter whether you’re a commuter, a racer or a recreational rider, if you love your bike, Real Bike Insurance is for you.

We’re run by bike enthusiasts, for bike enthusiasts. With cover from Hollard – APRA regulated Australian Insurer, you’ll know you and your bike are in safe hands.

Standard home and contents insurance may not cover your bicycle when you’re on the road. That’s why Real Insurance is an essential piece of kit for every cyclist.

At Real Bike we’ve developed two bicycle insurance products to meet your riding needs.

Real Bike’s Leisure product is perfect for those who commute and/or enjoy weekend rides. It offers basic cover for bicycles of up to $3,000.00 in value. Real Bike’s Sport product is for bicycles valued from $1,000.00 up to $30,000.00. If offers more comprehensive cover including damage sustained whilst racing

Other Commonly Asked Questions

Am I covered if I lend my bike to another person?

Yes, if they follow the terms and conditions of the RealBike Insurance Product Disclosure Statement.

Am I covered while travelling overseas with my bicycle?

With RealBike Insurance, your bicycle is covered while you are travelling anywhere in Australia and New Zealand. For trips anywhere else in the world, you need to let us know where you’re taking your bicycle, and we must confirm your cover in writing.

Are there any specific security requirements if I transport or store my bicycle?

Yes. To make sure you’re covered under RealBike Insurance, here are the main security requirements for storing and transporting your bike.

At your home:

  • You must ensure that when your bicycle is left inside your home that your home is securely locked whenever there is no one at home
  • If your bicycle is left in an outbuilding (such as your garage) or any other fully enclosed building with walls and a roof, these buildings must be securely locked. If you make a claim, you will need to provide evidence of forcible and violent entry to these buildings
  • If your bicycle is left anywhere else on your property, it must be securely locked through the frame of your bicycle to an immovable object with an approved lock

Away from your home:

If your bicycle is left unattended while away from your home, it must be securely locked through the frame of the bicycle to an immovable object with an approved lock. See What are approved locks?

While your bicycle is being transported:

  • If your bicycle is left unattended while it is in, or attached to, any motor vehicle (including while it is in transit) it must be securely locked through the frame of the bicycle to a properly fixed vehicle bicycle rack with an approved lock, or 
  • Locked in an enclosed boot that is not accessible by removing any partition or breaking a window

For more information on security requirements, please see the Product Disclosure Statement.

Can I add or make changes to the policy at any time?

Definitely! Just call us on 13 19 48 or email bike@realinsurance.com.au.

Please be aware that certain additions may affect your bike insurance premium.

Refunds are payable for cancellations. The refund amount is calculated on a pro rata basis less an administration fee.

Do I need proof of ownership?

Yes, you do need to provide proof of ownership. Your bicycle is covered as soon as your bike insurance policy starts if you purchased the bicycle new in the preceding 30 days (you will need to send us proof of purchase within 14 days of buying this policy).

If your bicycle is older than 30 days, you will need to have your local bicycle shop complete and sign the ownership verification section on your cover note, and then fax this to us before we can start your cover. Please note that we cannot cover you until we receive your proof of ownership.

If you would prefer to complete the proof of ownership before purchasing your policy, please print out a blank Proof of Ownership Form and send it to us once completed.


Please read and consider the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) and Insurance Policy wording in light of your personal circumstances, prior to making any decision to acquire the product.
