Bicycle Insurance Cover Features
All included as standard within your Velosure Cycle Insurance policy
Over 90,000 bike thefts were reported between May 2013 and April 2014. We understand where you need protection most, which is why our cover includes theft of your bike from the location it is insured at and also when it is away from your home.
In 2014 approximately 17,480 adult cyclists were involved in reported road cycling accidents. With Velosure, if your bike is damaged it would be assessed at a cycle retailer, then you would have the option of a repairer of your choice or one that we recommend.
If your bike breaks down more than a mile away from home, getting you and your cycle back can be a difficult task. Our 24/7 Cycle Rescue service will get you safely to the nearest repair shop, station, overnight accommodation or your home address if closer.
