Are stolen parts covered by cycle insurance?
It’s important to check whether your cycle insurance policy covers components against theft. Are your wheels covered? What about the seat? It’s not uncommon for thieves to steal the handlebars, shifters and all, by cutting away all the cables – would you be compensated if this happened to you? Cycle insurance from the ETA covers all parts against theft without onerous restrictions on the way you use your bike.
For example, while it’s recommended that you lock your wheels, it’s not a requirement – if you are unlucky enough to have your wheels stolen they will be replaced. Fixed accessories like pannier racks, water bottle cages, mudguards and computers (excluding quick release designs) can also be added to policy.
Other benefits included as standard are £5m third party, accidental damage, cycle rescue breakdown cover for your bike and you and a sympathetic policy on storage requirements. Find out about these benefits and others that are included at no extra cost and compare it to the competition.
