A Bikers Guide To Scooter Insurance

Aug 11, 2008
Scooters and mopeds are a very effective and easy way to get around to places in your local area and because they are very small and easy to park they are ideal for town locations. They are also very popular for young people that are too young to buy a car or simply cannot afford the expenses of a car.

This coincides with rising fuel prices and the credit crunch which means that running a car is very expensive now. And because it looks like fuel prices are not going to be lowered very soon it means that more young people will choose a scooter and moped over a car.

Because of the influx of young people driving scooters specialist insurance has been set up that insures young riders from accident damage and other mishaps that may happen during the year or two. This allows the rider to claim on the insurance any damage caused from an accident or failure of the moped that may occur that is not the riders fault.

There are now many different companies that are offering the young scooter rider insurance and it can be hard for the young person to find the right deal for them. These different companies vary from specialists to businesses that are selling other insurance policies such as house insurance and car insurance and want to add to their list.

It may become difficult for a person to decide what deal is right for them and this is because some policies may have hidden clauses or payments where as some policies may just be too expensive. Some comparison websites have helped make the situation easier however, as they will find all the insurance policies under your requests and will give each policy a rating as well as all the information needed allowing the person to make a conscience decision on what deal suits them.

Most of the companies that are offering scooter insurance will also offer benefits to riders that choose them. For example a rider that has recently acquired that policy they may receive a bonus on your cover for your scooter and will receive expert help and advice if you are having trouble with a claim from an accident that was not your fault.

This for example is an added incentive to persuade the new young riders to apply for your policy. This is key because the insurance part of the market is very competitive now with lots of companies trying to attract the same customers and this can get extremely confusing for a person trying to buy insurance.

This is why incentives are used by companies to try to attract more customers than their competitors and some companies may offer more incentives than others. But this does not mean that it is a better deal. As it may be more expensive or they may not be able to give you the expertise and help that you may need during the time you have a policy with that insurance group.

Most companies will also target an area of customers to persuade them to join their policy. The most likely places are the large cities across the country as this is where most scooters and mopeds are found. This is because they are easy to maintain and run, park, weave through traffic and are very cheap.
