- These preventive measures do not apply if your bicycle is at your home or in a locked private building.
Levels of compensation
- We offer you a 12-month purchase price guarantee, which means we will fully compensate the sum insured for your bicycle during that period, 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.

VAT), plus the price of any additional parts or accessories purchased, such as a bicycle bag, bicycle trailer or child seat. Accessories with a total value of not more than 300 euros are included under the cover free of charge. Therefore, you only have to provide the value of accessories above 300 euros.
