As standard all our plans include cover for customers who want to travel on their motorbike, with up to 31 days full policy cover for driving in the EU and other EU approved countries. In case of emergencies, we also provide you with 24-hour motorcycle breakdown assistance, which includes removing your bike to a suitable garage or hiring a replacement motorcycle if necessary.
