Don’t panic, there are a number of simple, yet effective tips and tricks that can help reduce the cost of your motorbike insurance. And we’ve put some together for you, here:
DO SOME ADDITIONAL TRAINING
If you’ve just passed your test, you could be considered a higher risk to insure compared to those that have had their licence for a long time. To help reduce this risk, there are some advanced rider training courses you can take to improve your biking knowledge & hopefully, your insurance premium.
Courses available include the police-run BikeSafe and the government’s Enhanced Rider Scheme.
Most motorbike insurance companies will give you an increased discount based on the security measures in place to keep your bike safe.
Obviously, the best place for your bike is a secure garage. But if you don’t have access to one of these, anything like an alarm, lock or chain does have the potential to reduce the cost of your premium.
GET AN OLDER BIKE
Nine times out of ten, brand new motorbikes are going to cost more to insure than older bikes – most of the time they’re faster, have better technology and are more likely to get stolen.
Riding a bike that’s 2 or 3 years old can help reduce the cost of your insurance and might be easier to handle if you’re new to riding.
