How To Pick The Right Insurance Policy

Mar 11, 2008
So now that you have passed your scooter driving lessons and now have bought your brand spanking new scooter the only problem you have is getting your head around finding a good quality cheap scooter insurance policy. Looking on quote comparison sites just may be a confusing thing for you, with so many companies promising you various services just which one will you turn to. What's more frustrating is the terminology used for each of these policies, what do they all mean?

Insurance are something vital to have with your scooter or motorbike. However, they do come at a price, which is why first time bike riders tend to seek out cheap scooter insurance without doing their research beforehand. This results in a bad insurance quote and signing up to something that has proved of no use to them.

The first thing you need to do is get as many insurance quotes as you can from various agents. This way you will get a good idea of the average price of a cheap scooter insurance, what services are generally offered and any other extra costs that you may incur. Sometimes when people think cheap they may not consider it the best value for money. There are cheap insurance quotes that do prove to be of more value for money than expensive quotes.

However, if you decide to opt towards a fully comprehensive insurance policy this does not necessarily mean you will be constantly out of pocket. This will entitle you to damages made to your bike/scooter, damage to the other parties motor and costs of medical facilities if needed. You will also need cover for passenger accidents so it is well worth considering.

The things to look out for in any cheap scooter insurance policy is whether you are insured on other bikes and covered for theft, damages, burning and damages to modifications. Too many riders forget to let their agents know about additional modifications made to their bikes or scooters. This may result in you finding that you policy may not cover damages or theft of these extra features, therefore always keep your agent updated.

Unfortunately, whatever insurance policy you opt for they will consider your employment circumstances and your age. Even though you may be merely 19 years old, this will not entitle you to cheaper insurance. The fact remains that young riders make more claims than older riders do, hence you must be prepared a little bit more than someone who is an experienced rider.

Always remember that being underinsured does not necessarily mean cheaper insurance. Imagine if you were involved in a bad accident you could quite possibly end up paying out a large sum of money in damage expenses, excess or worse still liability towards anyone who has been injured. Always be prepared for the worst.

Cheaper insurance are best tailored to your needs, taking into account your riding skills, mileage, the value of your bike, how many times you have claimed and how long you have been riding for. Young riders can save some more money by approaching brokers; they would have usually negotiated a deal with insurance agencies, which is worth looking into.
