Why bicycle insurance?
If you have a high value bicycle, you may think that it is covered under your standard home and contents insurance. While many home and contents insurance policies offer some basic cover for bicycles, the cover is often limited, and you may be surprised about what cover you actually have for your bicycle.
Standard contents insurance policies may protect you if your bicycle is stolen from your home, but often only for low value bicycles that have been itemised on your cover. Many contents insurance policies do not cover you if your bicycle is stolen away from your home, especially if the bicycle hasn’t been listed on your cover. Real bicycle insurance covers you for the theft of your bicycle at home, and away from home – anywhere in Australia and New Zealand. And we cover bicycles up to $20,000!
