Triathlon – Policy Benefits
Cover for your bikes
Comprehensive cover for all levels for riders from beginner to when n+1 gets out of hand
No one wants their prized custom build or training bike to be stolen. It happens though, and that’s why we’re here. Just make sure you comply with our locking requirements, it’s the main reason for a claim to unfortunately be declined.
Take a tumble after a nasty pothole, or a bend too quickly on a damp road! Everyone crashes, even the pros. Our policy covers you for accidental damage to your bike and components, so you can get back up and keep on riding.
New for old
Your bike may be a few years old now, or maybe just built and ready for its maiden voyage. We don’t depreciate bikes of any age. You’re covered for the value you’ve insured it for, even that vintage TT rig in the garage. Just insure it for the cost to replace it with a current model or build (don’t forget your pedals), and you’ll have enough cover should the worst happen.
Planning to take a trip to Lanzarote? we wish we were coming too! Whether you’re exploring, racing, or in transit with the airline, you’ll have the same level of cover for you and your bike as you do in the UK. *Public liability cover with PLUS and RACE policies excludes USA & Canada.
Seems unlikely, but if anyone gets a touch of the green-eyed monster and damages your pride and joy, we’ll cover you for that too.
50% multi-bike discount
How many bikes should you own… n + 1? Correct. So we offer up to 50% discount on the bike value you leave at home while out riding the other, which means you don’t need a separate policy for each.
Family + friends
If you dare let your pride and joy out with a family member or friend who lives with you, then the policy covers them too. Simple. For visiting friends, you’ve peace of mind that your bike is covered while they ride it.
24/7 ‘cycle hangar’ parking
Free up space in your home by using an on-street ‘cycle hangar’, and we’ll cover your bikes 24/7. Lock it through the frame to the rack inside, with an approved lock, and you’re good to go.
Airline trashes your bike on route to Majorca or you take a spill exploring foreign roads; if your bike’s damaged or stolen, we’ll cover a temporary hire bike up to £500 or the cost of your claim (whichever is lesser), so you can focus on your tan lines. Phew!
Cover for your kit
We know you can wear as much value as the bike you ride so we include a lot of kit related benefits as standard
Clothing + Headgear
Looking the part or being fully kitted for your Triathlon, doesn’t come cheap, so our policies include cover for your clothing and headgear against accidental damage and theft. You get a minimum of £250, or 10% of your total insured bike value, as standard. So if your bikes are worth £4000, that’s £400 of cover!
Gadget geek? We cover accessories attached to your bike as standard, so items like your Garmin, lights, bottle and cages are included. You get a minimum of £250, or 10% of your total insured bike value, as standard. So if your bikes are worth £5000, that’s £500 of cover! *Battery life and electronic malfunction not included.
Bike box cover
Bike adventurers need to protect their ride. If your bike box is damaged or stolen at the same time as your bike, you get £500 minimum bike box cover included with your Bikmo policy, or 10% of your total insured bike value, if that’s greater. So if your bikes are worth £8000, that’s £800 of cover! Go explore!
