    Specific bike insurance...recommendations please?

    Just been quoted by my current home contents provider. The premium isn't the issue, it's the excess. Each bike has an excess of 1.5k which is not real world in my book.

    All three bikes would cost between 3k & 4k each to replace but an excess of 1.5k seems crazy.

    Any recommendation for specific bike insurance companies before I melt google?

    I use Velosurance on my road bike but I don't know if they are international.

    I thought the same but I wanted something in case myself and my bike were hit by a car. The driver could easily hit and run. Luckily Velosurance offers free towing up to 30 miles and I can file an entire claim through them.

    They cover theft but you must prove that your bike was secured prior to the theft. I never get off my road bike when I'm out riding so the only thing I worry about is getting hit by a car and crashing.

    You can also claim up to $500 in parts repairs. I think that includes break downs too. I have read my packet a little more closely to understand how it works.
