Cycle insurance with free breakdown (including puncture cover)
Cycle insurance from the ETA includes free Cycle Rescue. If you suffer a breakdown, or puncture, while out on your bike, we will recover you and your bike up to 25 miles. We won’t be able to fix your bike, but we will get you recovered.
It’s just one of the things that sets us apart. On the face of it, one cycle insurance policy is much like another, but the devil is the detail. Check your small print for so-called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use the term, but if your bicycle is more than a few years old, devalue it severely. This means you are left out of pocket when you come to replace it.
With ETA cycle insurance, however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model. Furthermore, every cycle insurance policy you buy from us helps support the work of the ETA Trust, our charity campaigning for a cleaner, safer transport future. No wonder The Good Shopping Guide has voted us Britain’s most ethical insurance company.
