With the race calendar in full swing and the holiday season fast approaching Carole Nash has moved to make travelling worry-free for the nation’s bikers.

The UK’s biggest motorcycle insurance specialist* is to waive the excess – the amount an insurer requires you to pay towards any claim – for every single trip travel insurance policy it issues throughout July and August.

The move will provide even further reassurance to bikers who buy travel insurance through the company. Its policy is already specially designed to meet their needs as it includes cover for motorcycling on public roads – which many standard travel polices exclude as a “dangerous activity.” It also protects up to £1,000 worth of motorcycling apparel and £350 of accessories such as panniers.

“Many bikers are going to be tempted abroad over summer, whether to visit one of the 16 World Superbike and Moto GP races in 10 different countries yet to run, or simply to tour great biking destinations such as Austria, France and the US. Some will of course do both,” commented Carole Nash’s head of marketing, Rebecca Donohue. “Whatever they choose to do it’s imperative that they have not just travel insurance in place, but appropriate travel insurance.

“It concerns us that many standard travel policies which are targeted at bucket and spade holidaymakers specifically exclude motorcycling and that kit which is vital to bikers, such as helmets and leathers, may not be covered.”

She added that bikers should also ensure that they have adequate breakdown and accident recovery insurance in place. “The practical headaches and costs can be sizeable. Repatriating a bike is not cheap for example.” She pointed out that Carole Nash provides UK and European breakdown cover as standard with all of its road motorcycle policies, including those for classic and custom bikes.

The no excess offer is valid for five, 14 and 31 day European and Worldwide travel policies, for singles, couples or families, purchased in July or August. However, travel need not be undertaken during those months.
