If you ride on a public highway with a motorcycle, by law, you must have third-party insurance.

Covered

  • Harm you cause to others with your motorcycle. Includes property damage (bodywork, buildings) and bodily damage (death or injury).
  • If a vulnerable road user is injured in an accident involving your motorcycle, their injuries are compensated even if you were not in fault.

Not covered

  • Damage to your own motorcycle
  • Bodily injury that you as the rider sustain in a road traffic accident
  • Harm caused during participation in competitions

The complete list of exclusions can be found in the general conditions.

Options: additional insurance for more security

If you're after more security, you can extend your third-party liability insurance cover by adding a number of options. You are not under any legal requirement to do so, but it could end up saving you a lot of money. If you're interested, be sure to read all the information we've provided below.

1. Legal assistance insurance: expert advice and legal assistance if you’re involved in a claim

There’s always the possibility that you’ll end up in a dispute following an accident. Our legal assistance insurance team (Defendo) will be on hand to advise and help if you're:

  • involved in an accident and in a dispute over who's at fault
  • a victim of loss, damage or injury and the party responsible can’t or won’t compensate you for it
  • dissatisfied with repair work done to your motorcycle
  • in a dispute over revocation of your driving licence

We always try for an out-of-court settlement. If that doesn’t work, you can choose the lawyer you want to defend you in court. We will pay up to 100,000 euros to cover the costs of the court proceedings. And if the person who has to pay your loss doesn’t have the means to do so, we'll pay compensation of up to 12,500 euros.

Covered

  • If someone other than you caused you harm, we'll help you claim damages.
  • Legal assistance for contract disputes, such as when buying your motorcycle or getting it repaired.
  • Legal help in disputes with government agencies in connection with matters such as registering your vehicle, suspension of your driving licence and periodic inspections.
  • Criminal defence if you are prosecuted for road traffic offences such as speeding or riding your motorcycle under the influence.

Not covered

  • Fines and out-of-court settlements
  • Disputes arising from the carriage of persons and goods for consideration.
  • Disputes arising from taking part in competitions or wilful conduct constituting an offence.
  • Disputes further to renting a moped or renting yours out.

Assistance insurance: breakdown rescue service and roadside assistance for your motorcycle

It's not a lot of fun to be stranded at the roadside after you've broken down or had an accident. However, assistance insurance will ease the pain a little. With it, you can count on receiving roadside assistance for your motorcycle and a reliable breakdown rescue service, regardless of whether you're in Belgium or further afield.

Covered

  • If your motorcycle cannot be ridden as a result of an accident or because it breaks down, we'll provide breakdown assistance or arrange to have the bike towed away

Your motorcycle may be properly insured, but what about you?
Did you know that riders aren’t covered for bodily injuries they sustain in accidents they cause? Accident insurance provides proper cover for all persons authorised to ride your motorcycle.

Covered

  • The costs of medical care after an accident
  • Costs for suitable transport if you need to be taken to hospital for medical treatment
  • Compensation for permanent injury

We will pay compensation even if you caused the accident.
