Specialist motorcycle insurance broker Carole Nash is launching a new combined motorcycle and car policy to serve two-wheeled enthusiasts who also own four wheels.
Being introduced this week at the UK motorcycle industry’s showpiece event, the Carole Nash International Motorcycle and Scooter Show, the Six Wheel policy offers a minimum saving of £50 off the cost of buying cover separately. It also includes protected no claims bonus for both vehicles and UK and European accident and breakdown. As with every other Carole Nash motorcycle policy the Six Wheel policy also incorporates foreign travel cover and up to £50,000 in motor legal protection insurance to help recovery of any uninsured losses should a policyholder involved in an accident which is not their fault.
The Six Wheel policy is being launched after research by Carole Nash - the UK and Ireland’s biggest motorcycle insurance specialist - revealed that the vast majority of its motorcycling policyholders also owned a car and were very interested in the policy offering. The company saw that underwriting a car and bike on a single policy made sound commercial sense as the combined risk was lower and customers could therefore enjoy cost savings.
Explained Carole Nash’s chief executive David Newman: “Because they are not sitting in a protective metal cage bikers tend to be more aware of road risks, more attuned to defensive riding techniques. This makes them safer road users and a better risk as a driver. In addition Six Wheel premiums take into account the fact that policyholders cannot ride and drive two vehicles simultaneously. Given that fact why would you want to insure a bike and a car separately, having two premiums, two policies and two renewal dates?”
He added that Six Wheel is being introduced in response to bikers’ feedback. “We talk to a lot of bikers at shows and events like the NEC as well as conducting more formal research to inform our policy initiatives. Six Wheel is a direct response to a need identified by bikers themselves.”
