Free commuter cover during Ride to Work Week

LATEST TWEETS

Motorcycle insurers and brokers Ageas, Aviva,  Bennetts, BikeSure, Devitt Insurance, LV, Lexham Insurance and Zenith are all offering free commuter cover to leisure riders, so that they can ride to work during national Ride to Work Week (18th to 24th June). 
 

Only around half of all riders opt only for social and domestic cover, which Ride to Work Week aims to challenge by promoting the benefits of commuting via motorcycle and scooter.

The campaign highlights five main messages, which benefit individual riders and effectively reduce congestion for other road users too. 
 
Here's why riders #commutehappy
  • They save time - riders can much more easily predict their journey tines through filtering.
  • They save money - some small scooters do up to 150mpg.
  • Easy parking - the cost of parking adds hugely to driving a car and motorcyclists get into the smallest spaces, and usually it’s free too!
  • Beat congestion - if just 10% of car drivers swapped to a motorcycle or scooter, congestion would be reduced by 40% for all.
  • It's just more fun - you'll turn up to work with a smile on your face.
Customers should call their insurance company to activate their insurance, unless they are contacted directly from their provider.
