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.
