Cycling insurance comparison:

Each cycling insurer started on a level playing field with each hypothetically owning:

  • £1000 bike
  • £150 worth of accessories (lock, lights, mudguards etc)
  • I tend to leave my bike in my house and at work in a secure garage. Once a week I leave my bike overnight in London, when I go out for after work drinks (Around 14 hours)
  • Own a sold secure gold rated bike lock – The Kryptonite New York 3000
  • Have receipts for bike, lock, accessories
  • Occasionally take part in cycling events

Insurers tested, in order of price:

Cycleguard Bike Insurance:£130 per year

ETA Bicycle Insurance:£129.43 per year

BikMo Plus Cycle Insurance:£106 per year

E&L Cycle Cover:£100.32 per year

Protect Your Bubble Bike Insurance:£95.88 per year

Cycleplan:£62 per year< At £62 this was the one of the best quotes I received, but the coverage is basic, with the option of upgrading to more options such as worldwide travel and an excess waiver.

For policies worth more than £100, you are able to pay monthly, without incurring any additional fees.

Key points:

  • New for old for bikes up to three years old, then a deduction is made for wear and tear.
  • Worldwide cover, competition cover and personal accident cover is extra
  • Excess of £25 or 5% of the claim value – whichever is higher
  • Cover extends to family members, living at the same location<
  • Bike can be left for up to 12 hours and still be insured and 24 hours at a train station.
