FAQs about motorcycle insurance

  • What is not covered under motorcycle insurance?

    The insurance excludes damage or traffic accidents that are caused by you as the driver:

    • while unfit to drive,
    • under the influence of alcohol (blood alcohol level above the statutory permitted per mil. threshold),
    • while driving without a legally required driver’s license or without official authorization,
    • or with particularly gross disregard for the maximum permitted speed limit (according to Road Traffic Act).

    Nor is operating damage to the motorcycle, such as wear and tear included.

  • Do I also need roadside assistance?

    If you have purchased the Roadside assistance including onward travel add-on, we will make sure that your insured motorcycle is always ready to go. Roadside service from INTERTOURS travel insurance covers any vehicle that you drive. If you regularly rent cars or borrow them from friends, roadside service gives you welcome peace of mind.

  • How is the premium calculated for motorcycle insurance?

    We use different kinds of information to calculate the premium for your motorcycle insurance. One aspect we consider, for example, is what model motorcycle you have and how old it is. And of course what benefits you’d like to have: Partial or comprehensive accidental damage? Bonus protection? Courtesy vehicle if you have an accident? 

    The premium is calculated based on your needs.

  • Are passengers also insured?

    If you include “Injury to you and your passengers” coverage, then passengers are insured in addition to the owner of the motorcycle. If you have an accident which results in injuries, your motorcycle insurance will cover all transport of persons, treatment, hospital / spa stays, initial procurement of prostheses and much more.

  • What coverage do new motorcyclists need?

    All motorcyclists are required by law to have liability insurance. It’s usually also a good idea to have either partial accidental damage or comprehensive accidental damage insurance. Partial accidental damage includes a theft policy and covers the costs of damage due to natural hazards, such as hail, damage caused by animals and malicious damage. Comprehensive accidental damage covers all of the above plus damage you cause to your motorcycle yourself. Which coverage is right for you depends on how you drive, the age of your bike as well as other factors. At the end of the day, the choice is yours.
