Our Bike Insurance Benefits 


With Brightside Bike insurance you can be confident that the insurance you get covers all the basics plus more. If you need cover for trips around Europe, or for a friend to join you on your next exciting road trip then don’t worry – we include this as standard. With a specialist panel of insurers, we can provide insurance for modified bikes as well, so if you've changed the seat or upgraded your bar ends, we can cover it. 

Didn’t think there was anything you could do to bring down the cost of your bike insurance? Think again. We consider a variety of factors when it comes to your quote: where your bike is kept overnight; your own driver history; the cost of the bike itself and how many modifications it may have, to name but a few. With our cover, we take all these things into account and more to give you a great price.

Some great extras

Brightside Bike offers a wide range of optional extras designed to protect you against the potential wider consequences of riding your bike.  For example, we can provide cover for your leathers should you need to replace them if you fall off your bike, or for the legal costs you may incur if you were to be involved in a road traffic accident.

We also offer excellent RAC breakdown cover if you find yourself stuck on the side of the road with a flat tyre. If you have the need, we are confident you will be able to find the perfect additional covers for your bike insurance policy. 

Motor Legal Expenses

Motor Legal expenses insurance will cover your legal costs and expenses up to £100,000 which you may incur when pursuing a claim against a third party arising out of an insured event.

RAC Breakdown Cover

We've chosen RAC to provide our breakdown cover simply because we don't think there's anyone better. As someone who rides a bike breaking down can more stressful than when you're in a car - you're likely to be on your own and be exposed to the elements. And if you ride your bike as a hobby you could be miles away from home in an area you don't know. We know RAC can get to you quickly and with four in every five breakdowns fixed by the roadside we’re sure you’ll be on your way really soon. RAC Breakdown provide a range of options which cover you 24/7.

Excess Protection

The excess is the amount you have to pay in the first instance if you have an accident. This can sometimes be hefty and the bigger it is the cheaper your insurance will be. But, what if you do have an accident? How are you going to afford to pay it? Excess Protection Cover will pay that excess amount in the event of claim so you don’t have to worry about that along with everything else if you do have an accident.
