Cycleplan has joined forces with Quotezone, to enable it to bring its policies to a wider group of cycling enthusiasts.
In addition to equipment cover for theft and accidental damage, Cycleplan offers public liability cover up to £5million, providing protection if a policyholder accidentally injures another person or damages third party property whilst riding their bike. Personal accident cover is also available if riders suffer a serious injury or death as the result of a cycling accident.
More than 300,000 bicycles are stolen each year in the UK, according to data from the Office for National Statistics. Research earlier this month revealed that over two-thirds (67%) of stolen bikes are sold on within just a few hours of them being taken.
Quotezone’s founder Greg Wilson said: “Insurance is a sensible and cost-effective way to safeguard your bike. Cycleplan is a brand that has the interests of the UK’s cyclists at its very heart and the company’s commitment to protecting their personal wellbeing, their bikes and their cycling accessories is the reason it is one of the country’s leading providers of bicycle insurance.
“We’re delighted Cycleplan has chosen to partner with Quotezone.co.uk’s new bicycle insurance aggregator and are confident that both the company and our millions of users will greatly benefit from this partnership.”
Cycleplan’s MD John Woosey added: “We’ve chosen to partner with Quotezone as it shares our aim to help customers get the right cover at the right price in just a few clicks. It offers a great service to cyclists looking for insurance and we know our ‘only pay for what you need’ tailored approach will appeal to Quotezone users.”
Cycleplan is part of Ripe Insurance, which offers specialist insurance to over 220,000 policyholders. Its brands include Insure4Sport, which has policies covering sports’ teams, coaches, players and personal trainers and extreme sports.
