Travel insurance???

Can anyone recommend a travel insurance company that will let you ride over 250cc and WILL cover any excess you have to pay in the event of an accident.

Travel insurance direct for example will cover you riding any size motorcycle that you are licensed for in your own country but WILL NOT cover any excess you have to pay in the event of an accident.

Thanks for your time.

Off to India riding in November and Thailand in February

Nobody will be able to answer this without knowing which country you are from, I have seen some policies in the UK which offer a smaller excess but you pay a larger premium in the first instance.

The question was where are you from, country of origin?

world nomads will cover you (as far as it goes) for motorbikes but I doubt whether it will cover you for material damage in the case of an accident. Most do have personal liability cover so you would need to read the fine print to see what exclusions they have

Check out STA Travel. I've used them for three long rides and have been happy with the cost and coverage. I'm American and have no idea of STA terms in Australia but worth a look. Single and Multi-Trip Insurance | STA Travel

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
