Bicycle insurance specialist Cycleplan has joined up with insurance comparison platform Quotezone.co.uk to increase the reach of its policies.
In addition to equipment cover for theft and accidental damage, Cycleplan offers public liability cover up to £5 million. Personal accident cover is also available in the event of an accident.
According the Office for National Statistics (ONS) more than 300,000 bikes are stolen each year in the UK, where bike theft has jumped 17% since 2015.
Quotezone Founder Greg Wilson said: “Insurance is a sensible and cost-effective way to safeguard your bike. Cycleplan is a brand that has the interests of the UK’s cyclists at its very heart and the company’s commitment to protecting their personal well-being, their bikes and their cycling accessories is the reason it is one of the country’s leading provider of bicycle insurance.
