Lots of riders opt for loaded insurance premium excess when they insure their bike, to make the initial insurance premium as cheap as possible. If a claim then has to be made, the excess can cost more than the repairs.

The scheme provides excess protection cover specifically tailored for motorcyclists. Prices start at £29.95 to cover an excess of £250 for a year; £500 worth of cover costs £39.95 and if more is required, Bike-excess offers cover up to £2000.

Excess protection cover is available regardless of which insurer covers the bike and can start anytime during the machine’s insurance year. There are no age restrictions. For more information and prices visit
