Environmentally friendly cycle insurance

On the face of it, one cycle insurance policy is much like another, but the devil is the detail. How much excess you will be charged is just one of the things that varies wildly between providers. Another is so called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use this 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.

ETA cycle insurance has a low standard excess of 5% (minimum £25) and offers a new-for-old for life – however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model.

For over 26 years we have been providing straightforward, affordable bicycle insurance. Whether you use your bike to commute, shop, race or amble in the park, ETA Cycle Insurance has you covered.

    All my bike gear seems to expand: spare lights, locks, toolkit, change of clothes, waterproofs etc. Would be great to have a sturdy bag…

    Buying new bike next week, but it has no rack mounts so I need a bag, as a teacher, to carry home all my excess marking! I just hope it is big enough! 😉

    I will carry another Osprey bag inside it, so that when I get to the other end, I can turn around and take out the second bag and thus have a handy place to put the first bag, for the contented return journey home.
