The Qover Bicycle insurance is managed by Qover, an untied insurance agent registered with the Financial Services and Markets Authority. It is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Qover takes care of all the paperwork relating to your insurance policy and all related communication.
This insurance is 100% digital and is intended for people aged 18 or over, individuals, companies, or self-employed. Qover insures bikes up to a maximum of £10,000. The policy’s term length is one year, with a maximum duration of 3 years, and the start date and expiry date of the insurance contract are determined in the policy schedule.
Both the policyholder and Qover can cancel the contract for various reasons, as provided in the general terms and conditions. A policyholder can also revoke the insurance contract within 14 calendar days after receiving the policy schedule, general terms and conditions, and the pre-contractual information without providing a reason.
In the unfortunate case of death, the insurance contract is transferred to your successors, who can choose to keep it or cancel it. If you sell the bike, the insurance contract is not transferable and will automatically end from the moment of notification. Qover reimburses you an amount of premium in proportion to the unexpired days remaining on the contact period.
The application for the policy is online via the website. Select your bike type and purchase price (inclusive of VAT), then click on ‘Get my price.’ Follow the instructions to get your quote and sign up.
The premium depends on the bike’s insured value and your cover’s extent, as stated in the policy schedule. Payment must be made in full using either a debit or credit card. You will receive an invitation to pay from the insurer at renewal if renewal is offered and if you wish to renew your policy. If you wish to cancel your policy, you must do so no later than 10 days before the start date of your new policy (as stated in the renewal notice)
