What types of bicycles are covered?
A city bicycle, racing bicycle, mountain bicycle or other type of bicycle? We insure every new bicycle, even if it has electric pedal assistance.
However, there are some conditions:
- When you take out the insurance, your bicycle may be no older than two months
- The invoice amount must be between 600 and 6,000 euros (bicycle and accessories combined)
- If your bicycle is older or more expensive, please contact us to discuss your options.
Additional conditions for electric bikes:
- Auxiliary electric motor-powered pedal assist is limited to 45 km/hour
- E-bikes may not be ridable without pedalling
This insurance does not cover bicycles that you rent out or lend in the course of business.
What requirements must your bicycle meet to be insured against theft?
- To prevent bicycle theft, we require the use of an ART approved bicycle lock (category 2 or higher) or a 'sold secure' bicycle lock, gold/silver type.
- On public roads or in other places accessible to the public, you must always secure your bicycle to an immovable object with one of the above locks. This may also be another bicycle or a car. In a locked location it is sufficient to lock your bicycle.
What we reimburse
- We offer you a twelve-month purchase price guarantee. During that period, we will compensate the sum insured* for your bicycle without making any deductions for wear and tear. As from the 13th month, we'll apply a wear and tear percentage of 1% per month.
- If not just the bicycle but also your bicycle helmet is damaged, we will provide compensation of up to 125 euros for it.
- The deductible, the amount you pay yourself, depends on the type of bicycle.
- For city bicycles and electric bicycles (with a maximum speed of 25 km/h) the deductible is 50 euros
- For speed pedelecs, MTBs, racing bicycles or other bicycles the deductible is 10% of the insured damage with a minimum of 50 euros
* What is the sum insured?
The amount to be insured consists of the price actually paid (= invoice price incl. VAT), plus the price of any additional accessories such as a saddle bag, bicycle trailer or bicycle seat. Damage to accessories not included in the sum insured are covered free of charge up to an amount of 300 euros.
Your bicycle may be properly insured, but what about you?
The KBC Bicycle Insurance covers you against theft of and damage to your bicycle along the way. Your personal accident insurance also provides compensation for the expenses that your health insurance and hospitalisation insurance don't cover following an accident.
