Hi there,

I have just seen your response to the thread I posted (on the road and not checking this site often)and I went to your website listed at the bottom but couldn't find any details about motorbike insurance that you say you can offer.
Could you give some specific details please as there may be others interested in this info also.
I will be happy to know that next time I can insure for less and have the same coverage throughout UK and EUROPE as an Australian citizen with a UK registered bike.
Cheers
Christy

The price might still depend on other factors that you haven't mentioned herein - the amount of riding experience for example.

Did you need to have an IDP for this cover? (I don't particularly care what the answer is, but others may).

As a general point, UK insurance cover is becoming ever more "automated" in the sense that it is liinked into computer records - just the way of the world.
So, yes, they don't actually care where you are living/registering the bike so long as there is a UK address where the bike itself is deemed to be based - a UK postcode for that address then determines the statistics for how much chance there is that the vehicle would be stolen from that area, while parked outside at night, or parked on a drive way or, better still, parked in a garage.

Good to know that obtaining such insurance is still possible though.

ps Bikesure is a UK broker of course - they advertise fairly extensively in the UK motorcycle press.
IIRC, I have read somewhere that they are the specialist brokering arm of a bigger company but I can't remember which one (not that it matters to this thread, but that is the service that you are paying for).
Hey mister,

Sorry for delay in response - am on the road and not checking site so often.
In answer to your question - YES I do have a IDP (international driving permit) but insurance company didn't even ask for that.... They did ask for years of driving and riding experience which for me has been 20 years (and I have a HR license also which they noted).
The fella I spoke with was a motorbike enthusiast himself so he made the process as quick as can be!
And BikeSure underwrite for MAKERSTUDY LTD....
Still, theres got to be a cheaper way!!!
(I tried Doobys' - the fella who responded to my post - website for details/contact but no luck yet! Early days!)

Hi there,

Have just sent you a message through the email listed on your website....
Could you tell me if the insurance you offer covers UK trips as well as Europe?
And if so - Im sure others would benefit from knowing the details too!
Cheers

Hi, to cut the things short, you can send us your inquiry with detailed questions at borderinsurance@lobagola.com

On our main page you have in the main navigation Tours & Services segment about border insurance and also on the main page in the lower part there is a teaser line with links and announcements what we offer besides accommodation

Direct link with prices: Lobagola - Border insurance

We reply the same day, sending scans in 24 h and original docs also in 24 h to address you choose. Policy will cover you throughout Europe and soon we'll add more countries, all the way to Iran.
