If you want to ride a motorbike or moped while overseas, whether just for a day here and there or as your main mode of transport, there’s cover under the policy if you’re properly licensed to ride.
There's cover available if you’re riding a scooter or motorbike on public roads or as a pillion passenger with a licensed rider.
If there’s a chance you’ll be riding off-road, eg on dirt tracks which aren't used for usual traffic or if you’re trail bike riding going cross country, then there’s cover for this too. However, you’ll need to pay a bit extra for this as those dirt roads can be a challenge to navigate at times on two wheels.
Simply add ‘motorbike riding’ or ‘scooter riding’ to the list of your sports and activities when getting your quote. It’s that simple!
