Wiggle’s new cycle insurance plan to help keep cyclists on their bikes
By: Brandnation Ltd
Wiggle, the UK’s largest online cycle retailer, has announced the launch of their cycle specific insurance by providing three affordable and straightforward packages for cyclists to easily select the right cover for their ride.
Despite 15% of surveyed cyclists having had a bicycle stolen, only 5% have specialist cover. As a result, Wiggle are seeking to bring cycle insurance to the masses.
Head of Insurance and Legal at Wiggle
“At Wiggle, we know the highs and lows of cycling and wanted to create an insurance product to make our customers experience of cycle insurance simpler and better. By simplifying the sometimes confusing add-on options we’ve developed three straightforward packages to provide cyclists with cover they can rely on from a trusted brand alongside a claims service that’s geared around supporting cyclists when they need us the most.”
“Wiggle cycle insurance is a great addition to our Wiggle brand and reflects our core values. We’re excited that Wiggle can offer an insurance product that’s about the good stuff.”
Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling
“At Team Wiggle Honda there’s nothing more important than our bikes. If like us, your bike is your pride and joy, you’ll want to ensure it’s protected by a trusted brand.”
The product, designed by cyclists and insurance experts, delivers a number of industry leading benefits:
Emergency, private medical, dental and physiotherapy treatment
With a Wiggle cycle insurance policy, you won’t need to wait in A&E. This will be a reassuring aspect for the 9% of cyclists who are knocked off their bikes every year*.
Taxi fare reimbursement
In a thoughtful quirk to the policy benefits, Wiggle will also reimburse taxi fares for stranded claimants. This is another nod to the fact that this cover has been developed by cyclists who’ve faced similar situations before.
Unbeatable multi-bike discounts of up to 60%
This will prove advantageous for those that always have room for one more bike.
Free legal advice
For when the bad stuff happens, Wiggle provides free legal advice and a full accident management service for cycling accident claims.
No extra charges for monthly payments
No need to worry if you find APR% charges confusing, Wiggle won’t charge you any interest if you choose to pay monthly.
