Bikers Put Money Saving Tips in Gear

Share Article

When purchasing a new bike, many riders are put off by potential cost hikes for their motorbike insurance, according to Swinton Bikes.

Swinton Bikes, one of the leading providers of motorcycle insurance, is offering bikers a number of tips to help them save money on premiums.

Jumping bike sizes is a certain way to hike up an bike insurance premium, so it's best to avoid large leaps and progress through CCs slowly. Also, many insurers will also offer a discount for people downsizing bikes.

According to statistics, motorbikes are twice as likely to be stolen as a car, so keeping them locked in a garage could help reduce the cost of bike insurance premiums. Fitting an immobiliser can also help to reduce the cost.

How much the bike is used can used can also affect the premium. If the bike isn't used as the main method of transport, i.e. the driver also owns a car, some brokers will take this in to account when providing a quote.

Swinton Bikes advises riders to remember these three simple steps for cheaper motorbike insurance:

  •     Get experience
  •     Minimise the risk
  •     Ride just for fun

Anthony Aronin, Head of Swinton Bikes, said: "By taking a few simple steps it is possible for bikers to reduce the cost of their motorbike insurance premiums. However, the cheapest policy is not always the best, so we'd advise riders to check that the policy provides the right cover for their individual needs."
