Motorbike Breakdown Cover from the ETA
We can provide motorbike breakdown recovery in one of two ways:
- Personal breakdown – covers you on any motorcycle as rider or pillion. Also covers you as driver or passenger in any car
- Vehicle breakdown – covers a nominated motorcycle for any rider
Every policy includes basic Roadside Assistance as standard.
Motorbike Breakdown Recovery
If your motorbike breaks down or is involved in a crash over ¼ of a mile from your home, we will send a specialist recovery lorry to you and one of our mechanics will offer up to one hour’s labour at the roadside in order to get your vehicle moving again.
We fix four out of five faults at the roadside, but if we cannot get your bike moving again we will take you, your vehicle and pillion to the nearest suitable garage – or your home if it’s nearer.
The cover includes breakdowns caused by lost, snapped or stolen keys, running out of fuel and filling up with the wrong fuel.
We also guarantee to get your motorcycle to a suitable repairer, even if this means recovering you home first and then arranging a next-day recovery free of charge.
We aim to be with you within 39 minutes – if we take more than one hour we will give you £10.
Single-trip European motorcycle breakdown cover
A single-trip policy from the ETA provides the ideal motorbike road trip breakdown cover, with cover available from 1-31 days. If you’re riding abroad for longer than this, you can get a quote for Annual European Breakdown Cover, which will cover you for up to 90 days in any policy year.
Our Europe option covers motorcycles, trikes and sidecar combinations and extends all features and benefits already chosen from the list above to all states of the European Union for up to 90 days. We cover Austria, Belgium, Britain, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden as well as Norway, Switzerland, Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino and the Vatican City.
This type of single-trip breakdown cover may suit bikers who travel abroad only occasionally and those who make do with a basic level of breakdown service at home, but prefer the peace of mind offered by a more comprehensive level of cover when abroad.
On your way to the coast, the cover includes up to one hour’s free labour at the roadside, and if necessary:
- Recovery to one single destination in Britain, or
- One night’s accommodation whilst the motorcycle is repaired at a maximum of £60 per person, or
- Onward travel for you and your pillion to complete your journey and a return journey for the rider to collect the repaired bike, or
- Motorcycle or car hire for up to 5 days to a maximum of £40 per day whilst your bike is being repaired
Once in continental Europe, European single trip breakdown includes the benefits listed above with the following extensions to the cover:
- Motorcycle or car hire for up to 14 days to a maximum of £60 per day
- If your bike cannot be repaired within 72 hours we will arrange for it to be repatriated to your home
- Transportation costs for you and your pillion to return home separately from your motorcycle and also for one person to return to the motorbike once it has been repaired
