Motorcycles, unlike almost any other type of vehicle, are enjoyed by hobbyist almost as much as they are used to get around every day.
The thrill of riding and the sense of freedom on a bike is almost unrivalled and this makes them incredibly popular for occasional riders. That, and of course the weather.
Riding a bike isn’t nearly as fun when it’s freezing cold and raining heavily, so many part-time riders choose to only saddle-up when the weather is better.
If you’re an occasional rider then one week motorbike insurance could be incredibly useful.
If you’re not riding the whole year-round, why would you pay for a whole years’ worth of insurance? With a one week policy, you don’t have to – you only pay for the cover you need.
While you can choose when you want to ride, you can’t you choose when you want to be insured.
Riding for insurance, even if you’re just going around the block is illegal and if you’re caught, you can face up to six penalty points, a £300 fine, and you could even have your bike crushed.
Even if you’re riding occasionally, riding without insurance is not worth the risk.
With one week motorbike insurance, you can don’t have to pay for an expensive annual policy you won’t need and with comprehensive cover as standard, you know that you’re not only legally allowed to ride on the road but also have the highest level of cover to protect you, should you have an accident.
It’s not just ideal for occasional riders, if you’re borrowing a bike for a week or you’re picking up a new motorcycle and want time to arrange annual insurance, a temporary policy could save you time and money.
As we mentioned above, temporary motorcycle insurance is the perfect insurance option for any of the many occasional riders. With tailored, flexible policies available you only pay for the cover you want.
A one week policy could be the right duration for you, but if you don’t need a whole a week’s worth of cover, you can get a policy to suit your needs. From 1-7 days, you can get a policy that suits your situation.
You’re not tied into any long-term contracts and if you want to get back on a bike when your policy expires, you get another policy quickly and easily.
If you’re the type of rider who wants to check the weather report before heading out on the road, you can get a policy in minutes and with instant cover available, there’s no waiting around, even if you leave it to the last minute.
It’s not just a last-minute option, you can buy a policy up to 30 days in advance so if you’re planning ahead it’s the same simple and straightforward process. Whenever your policy is due to start, your documents are emailed to you the moment you purchase your policy.
If your bike is in the garage for repairs or you’re just borrowing a bike for a week, temporary cover could be the best way to save yourself and the bike owner time and money.
Temporary motorcycle insurance is a separate, standalone policy which means that should you have an accident, their No Claims Discount is not affected. This can save the bike owner a lot of money on their future premiums, something we’re sure they’ll be incredibly grateful for.
For complete peace of mind for everyone, temporary insurance is the fast, flexible, and affordable option.
Planning to get away from it all with a friend or just have a long journey and want to share the ride with a pillion passenger? Temporary insurance lets you ride their bike without having to adjust their existing policy.
This will not only protect their No Claims Discount but because they won’t have to adjust their existing cover you won’t have to pay an expensive admin fee or affect the price of their premiums going forward.
You’re insured to ride the bike for the duration of the policy with no restrictions on when or where you can ride.
To help as many riders as possible get temporary cover, we have wide acceptance criteria but because we work with individual insurers there are some restrictions on who can get cover.
