One week motorbike insurance

7 day temporary cover for motorcycles

Motorcycles, unlike almost any other type of vehicle, are enjoyed by hobbyists almost as much as they are used to get around every day.

The thrill of riding and the sense of freedom on a bike are almost unrivalled and this makes them popular for occasional riders.

But riding a bike isn’t nearly as much fun when it’s freezing cold and raining heavily, so many riders choose only to saddle up in good weather.

If you’re an occasional rider, then one-week motorbike insurance could be very useful.

If you’re not riding the whole year round, why would you pay for a whole year’s 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 choose when you want to be insured.

Riding to get insurance, even if you’re just going around the block, is illegal. 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 bike and want time to arrange annual insurance, a temporary policy could save you time and money.

When would I need a one-week policy?

Occasional riders

As we mentioned above, temporary motorcycle insurance is the perfect insurance option for 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 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 buy your policy.

Borrowing a bike

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 you and the bike owner time and money.

Temporary motorcycle insurance is a separate, standalone policy which means that if you have an accident, the owner’s No Claims Discount is not affected. This can save them a lot of money on their future premiums, something we’re sure they’ll be very grateful for.

For complete peace of mind for everyone, temporary insurance is the fast, flexible, and affordable option.

Sharing the ride

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 protects their No Claims Discount. And 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 future premiums.

You’re insured to ride the bike for the duration of the policy with no restrictions on when or where you can ride.

Who can get cover?

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.

If you’re looking for one-week motorbike insurance, we are confident we can offer you cover if you are:

  • aged 17-70
  • have had no more than 6 penalty points in the last 3 years
  • have not been disqualified from driving within the last 3 years
  • wanting to insure a bike up to 1200cc, valued between £500-£10,000.
