What type of motorbike insurance do I need?

Like car insurance, motorbike insurance is available in three tiers, fully comprehensive, third party fire and theft and third party. Third party only covers you for damage done to another period or their vehicle. Third party, fire and theft, goes one step further as it also covers your bike if stolen, or damaged by fire. Fully comprehensive bike insurance is the most expensive but also the most inclusive, and also includes cover for accidental damage, vandalism and repairs.

Do I need bike insurance?

You need motorbike insurance if you want to ride your bike on the road. You also need insurance in order to pay your road tax. Carole Nash are able to cover all motorbike types to include: standard motorbikes, super bikes, cruising bikes, touring bikes, scooters, mopeds, sports bikes, choppers, and even off-road bikes. At Paddy Compare you can get bike insurance quotes for all makes and models such as Aprilla, Ducati, Harley Davidson, BMW, Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki.

What is covered?

Depending on the policy type you select, either fully comp, third party fire and theft, or third party, a standard policy will provide you with accident and breakdown cover, motorcycle legal expense cover, accessory cover, rider cover which could allow you to ride a friend's bike, and european cover. Optional add ons include: helment and leathers cover, events cover or international cover.

What impacts the cost of bike insurance?

You could expect to pay between €150 and €1,000 for motorbike insurance in Ireland. The main factors impacting the cost of your bike insurance include: your bike make and model, the specification and any modifications; your vehicle age and annual mileage; your age and occupation; your driving record and whether you have built up a no claims bonus; and where you live. Some areas are seen as higher risk due to theft and vandalism, if you live in the city you may be at higher risk of having an accident due to there being more traffic. If you are younger than 25 years old, bike insurance could be 25% higher than that of a more mature driver.
