What is Motorcycle Breakdown Cover?

Motorcycle breakdown cover is insurance that means should your motorbike suffer a break down, you’ll be provided with roadside assistance to attempt to resolve the situation at no extra cost. Motorcycle breakdown cover often also includes many other policy benefits that are designed to help fix your motorbike as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Do I Need Motorcycle Breakdown Cover?

Whilst having motorcycle breakdown cover isn’t a legal requirement, there are few things worse than being stranded with cover in place when your motorbike has broken down in the pouring rain.

What is Included in Motorcycle Breakdown Cover?

Motorcycle Breakdown Cover

Our providers all know that a Motorcycle rider can be more vulnerable than a car driver, and some will offer extra levels of breakdown cover under their policy specifically for motorbike riders. There are all sorts of policy benefits that can be included in your motorcycle breakdown policy, we’ve outlined some of the more common ones below.

Roadside Assistance

This is the bread and butter of a motorcycle breakdown policy. Roadside assistance will always be offered in the first instance when you phone your assistance provider.

Roadside Recovery

If your motorcycle can’t be fixed at the roadside, then you’ll be offered what’s called recovery. This is where you and your motorbike will be taken to a nearby garage (or one of your choosing, depending on the type of policy you have) for repairs.

Recovery can be either nationally (so anywhere in the UK) or just locally within a certain distance of where you broke down.

Onward Travel

Some of our motorbike breakdown cover policies will offer you the option of onward travel should your vehicle not be fixed by the end of the working day. Check through our policy options to make sure you have onward travel included should you want it.

For more information, check out our Onward Travel guide.

Home Start

If your motorcycle breaks down at or within a certain distance from your house then having home start will mean you’ll still be able to get assistance even when you’re not technically at the roadside.

If you’d like to learn more about home start, check out our Breakdown Cover Explained article.

What Do I Do if My Motorcycle Breaks Down?

If you suffer a breakdown on your motorbike, the first thing to do is to try and get into a safe position. If you break down on a motorway that means getting off your bike, and onto the grass verge. Once you’re safe, you should phone your assistance provider and tell them exactly what has happened and where you are. Your assistance provider will then be able to make sure help is sent out to you.

If you’re unsure of your assistance provider, this will be written on the top of your policy certificate which is emailed to you after you purchase.
