Make sure your bikes are insured

08 June 2010 Aon South Africa

Motor bike and quad insurance is best handled by a specialist insurance broker who can source the most competitive deal, tailor-made packages, excess buy-back options and much more. As a leading bike specialist, Aon has unrivalled expertise in this area as well as access to a wide range of specialist bike insurance schemes.

Luzelle Barnard, Motorcycle Portfolio Manager of Aon South Africa says rates are generally calculated based on lifestyle and riding experience and cover superbikes, cruisers, scooters; quad bikes, ATV and side-by-side cover two wheels off-road/ scramblers as well as riding gear.

“We find that clients are looking for comprehensive insurance options, which cover themselves against accident risk, their ride, kit and trailer - even outside South Africa,” she says. Tailor-made excess options and special rates are also available for masters if riders have completed a biker’s academy and riding school instruction. Excess buy back is available to allow clients full control over their financial situation.

“At the end of the day clients need to select a broker who not only understands their needs, but also one with a personalised hands-on approach to claims settlement ensuring a 24-hour turnaround time,” Barnard concludes.
