Thinking of buying a bike? Great decision! Whether you go for an e-bike, racing bike, used bike or another type of iron steed, cycling is healthy and fun.
A new bike doesn’t have to be expensive and there are also second-hand bargains to be had. If a higher-end model is more your thing and you’d rather invest without touching your savings, a bicycle loan may be useful. That lets you spread the cost of your new trusty two-wheeler over time.
Remember to insure your bike or speed pedelec against damage or theft, allowing you to enjoy the ride with the peace of mind that – if the worst does happen – you’re we’ll covered against any unpleasant surprises.
- Any unexpected damage to, destruction or theft of your bicycle, worldwide and 24/7.
- Up to 12 months after the purchase date, we will fully compensate the sum insured for your bicycle.
- Accessories (such as bicycle bags, child seats or bicycle trailers) with a value of not more than 300 euros are included under the cover free of charge. Extensions are possible.
- Damage to your bicycle helmet is covered up to a maximum of 125 euros.
- Bicycle assistance (VAB breakdown service) – Accident, technical defect, puncture, faulty battery, vandalism, theft or attempted theft of your bicycle? If so, the VAB will come to your aid anywhere in the Benelux if your bicycle is on a road that can be accessed by a VAB assistance vehicle. If necessary, we will take you, your bicycle, your children and your bicycle trailer either to the location best suited for the repair or to your destination.
- Under the all-risk insurance
- Damage caused by wear and tear or lack of maintenance
- Damage that does not affect use, such as scratches
- Damage covered by a warranty or caused by a manufacturing defect
- Damage to the battery, charger or non-permanent accessories without the bIcycle being damaged
- Damage caused whilst taking part in competitions

We will not provide assistance if you are unable to continue using the bicycle due to:

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