Motorbike Breakdown Cover

Breaking down is every rider’s worst nightmare – not least because it usually happens at the worst possible time.

As well as being stranded in the elements with little protection, breakdowns can also be very costly for riders, especially if your motorcycle needs to be recovered and moved.

By getting Breakdown Cover you can avoid paying expensive fees for roadside assistance.

What is Breakdown Cover?

Breakdown cover is a service that helps get you back on the road (and sometimes back to a garage) in the unfortunate event of your motorbike breaking down.

Different levels of Breakdown Cover

Motorcycle insurance offers three basic levels of cover, ranging from Third Party Only, Third Party Fire and Theft and Comprehensive cover.

The same thing happens with Breakdown Cover with different levels available depending on how much you are willing to pay and how extensive you want the cover to be.

At the bottom of the range, Breakdown Cover will get an engineer sent out to fix your bike and have it delivered to the nearest garage if needed. From there you’ll have to pay for everything else.

Further up the range, rather than be taken to the nearest garage, you’ll get to your chosen destination and with some policies you can even have accommodation and additional travel charges paid for – at home or abroad.

Does Breakdown Cover make sense?

There’s every chance that despite paying for motorcycle Breakdown Cover, you might never have to use it, but that doesn’t mean it was money wasted.

As anyone who has ever broken down will tell you, it’s a bit of a nightmare. It usually takes quite a bit of time to be resolved and is a definite hindrance. That’s magnified if you then have to pay £500 to get your bike fixed.

With motorbike Breakdown Cover you don’t have the same level of expense and it is usually a one-off payment.
