Multi bike insurance
If you own two bikes, you could save yourself time and money by insuring both of them on a multi bike policy.
If biking is one of your passions, you may have a couple of bikes sitting in your garage — one for day to day use and the other you save for weekend cruises.
Did you know you can save both time and money by combining your two insurance policies and taking out multi bike cover? That way you don't have the hassle of managing separate policies; you only need to worry about the one.
A multi bike policy tends to be cheaper because insurers calculate the premium partly based on the fact that you'll only be riding one bike at any given time.
Unlike multi car insurance though, multi bike insurance will only cover you, the main rider. It's not really suitable if other people in your household also ride, as the policy doesn't allow multiple bikes to be on the road at the same time.
Similar to cars and vans, all motorbike makes and models are grouped in terms of their value and power. There are between 17 and 22 motorbike groups, with most models falling under groups 3–17.
Generally speaking, the more powerful and expensive a bike is, the higher the group and the more it will cost to insure. So, if you have a multi bike policy, any bikes you own that are in the lower groups can balance out those in the higher groups, in turn bringing down the price you pay for cover.
Multi bike insurance from Hastings Direct
Our policies come with a range of benefits as standard, such as 90-day EU cover and 6 years' no claims discount, with the option to protect it. We also offer introductory savings for riders with zero no claims discount.

If you want, you can tailor your policy to boost your cover, choosing from a range of optional extras. These include:
Bike legal cover
Claim up to £100,000 to pay legal costs, claim back your policy excess, or get compensation for you and your family if you suffer injury or loss of life in a non-fault accident. This wouldn't normally be covered by any standard multi bike insurance policy.
Bike key protection
Take our bike key protection and you'll receive £1,500 worth of cover in the event your keys are lost, stolen or damaged. This sum also includes any out of pocket expenses you get from replacing or repairing your keys.
Helmet and leathers cover
Riding gear isn't cheap, add helmet and leathers cover to your policy and you'll receive up to £750 for clothing that's damaged as a result of an accident under your multi bike insurance policy.
Bike personal accident
Personal accident cover can pay up to £15,000 if you're injured in an accident while riding your bike. You're also protected if you fall victim to road rage, with your insurer paying £100 a day for hospital stays, up to 30 days.
Full terms and conditions can be found in our optional additional products booklet.
