Can anyone point me in the right direction for travel insurance (medical cover/repatriation etc etc) as opposed to bike insurance, when hiring a bike abroad?
I already have worldwide travel insurance provided free by my bank, but it only covers riding a hired motorcycle up to 125cc or riding my own bike from the UK to my destination... Neither option covers what I am planning to do. - my wife and I are driving part of Route 66 by car, but planning on hiring a Harley for a day on one of our stopovers.
So.. Can anyone give me any tips or recommendations for a bike friendly travel insurance company or broker?
Thanks.

I've used a few of these types of insurance and they are getting more and more user friendly,all done on-line

last one I used was this one I think which was easy to do even with a string of medical conditions which would put off most insurers.

Use it as your main holiday insurance as it will cover all sorts of activities, and in the USA, you really don't want to be paying for anything more than a plaster!

These are the last people I used, no problems...

Cheers Boatman, I've checked it out and it doesn't cover rentals. Ah well, thanks anyway.

I took out www.holidaysafe.co.uk last year after being recommended on here.I never had to make a claim so can't comment on their service.
