The growth in electric bike use shows no sign of stopping. As the technology continues to develop, the bikes are becoming lighter, battery life is improving and the range of e-bikes to choose from is increasing. Likewise, electric bike owners are also becoming more varied, whether it’s those who use it for their daily commute, those who still want to ride the trails but no longer have the fitness or downhill riders who don’t like the uphill slog, these bikes are becoming a common sight across the UK.
However, when it comes to insuring your electric bike, the story is not so straightforward. Many insurers simply won’t provide cover and those that do often have strict conditions and limitations, not to mention high premiums, that deter many people from insuring their e-bike.
At Pedalcover, we treat electric bikes exactly the same as traditional bikes, meaning you get the same great cover whether your bike is battery powered or not.
What’s more, this is combined with our building and contents insurance for your home too, giving you complete peace of mind.
And that’s not all. Our home and bike policy covers all of the bikes in the household in one single policy, with no limit on the number or value of the bikes.
And if that wasn’t enough, in most cases, you get all this for less than most bike-only insurance policies on the market.
