Can I insure a motorcycle for one month?

Yes, our temporary motorcycle insurance can be used for one month. This makes it perfect for those who are going on a touring holiday or temporarily using their bike to commute.

Can I get seasonal motorcycle insurance?

Many bikers choose to take out motorcycle insurance seasonally, i.e. during the summer months when the sun is shining. We can provide seasonal motorcycle insurance and also offer laid up bike insurance when you’re not using your motorcycle.

Alternatively, you could look at a discounted annual policy with a mileage limitation that reflects the seasonal use of your bike. This means your bike is covered 24/7, 365 days a year, which offers flexibility and peace of mind should you need to ride your bike off-season. Ask about our annual limited mileage policies when you give us a call.
