Travel insurance

Post by Far canal » Sun Dec 22, 2019 9:49 pm

Hi, I've searched the topics but can't find an answer to this so here goes,

I'm off to Malaysia in February to rent a bike & do a bit of travelling around. I'm looking for travel insurance which covers a larger bike, probably 650cc or thereabouts, BUT all the ones I've seen don't cover you if you're over 65. I'm a few years beyond that :D so can anyone suggest a company which covers the older, but still up for an adventure, gentleman?

I'm over 65 and use Voyager, you can,t get a quote online over 65 but they sold me annual multi trip policies all through my late sixties over the phone.
Staysure specializes in over 70s and some of my friends use them.

LV= might be ok.
I was under 65 when I went to India but they covered me on a rented Enfield 500.
They seem a well organised and respected company so may well not worry about age so much.

"Well, it looks like my adventure biking days could soon be over. I've now logged on to numerous sites, including the ones suggested, and find that either"

https://www.holidaysafe.co.uk/bn/ insure up to 79 years of age.
I'm assuming you just mean travel insurance and not road risk insurance.
By third party accident cover do you mean your liability to others? The bike insurance would cover that, The holidaysafe insurance would have third-party public liability.

Hope it helps and you get to ride.

Thanks, Holidaysafe is exactly the one I found.
