So this is probably the most boring page, yet probably the most important. Paper work will be covering,
- Insurance bike and individual
This has been a tricky one, I will start with the easy bit, Individual Insurance, so this cover my self for cycling in any country for any time, it also covers my gear up to about £500, medical cover and all that. I have used DogTag insurance, they do this stuff on a daily basis, so call them up tell them what your doing and they will give you a price so that your covered. Very easy to talk to, all the office cycles and they simply understand what you need, www.dogtag.co.uk
Moving on to the bike insurance. This is a tricky one!!! so you want to take a lock but if your bike is over a certain value 90% of the insurance companies want you to have an approved lock usually through the Sold Secure rating. This means you then have to find a lock that is not the weight of small horse, but rater..........next you want to be covered out or Europe...........thirdly for more than 30days. I tried 6 of the major companies and no joy at all.
Then I stumbled across Harrison Beaumont Insurance..............brilliant, called them up cover all of the bike for 12months any country with any lock.....perfect. Give Matt and call and he will sort you out www.hbinsurance.co.uk
Go to your GP, they have a pretty good system, you say your going here, there, everywhere they tell you what you need.
They can usually give you 75% of what you need for free. Then ask them about the ones you have to pay for and what their prices are. My local surgery could proved everything I needed and saved me around £150!!
