Buying motorcycle insurance can seem like a confusing task, but here at Carole Nash we’re determined to make it as simple and straightforward as possible.

There are three different types of motorbike cover:

  • Third party only
  • Third party fire and theft
  • Comprehensive

A third party only policy is the most basic level of cover. This gives you the minimum level of insurance needed to ride on the road. It provides insurance against a third party’s vehicle or property if you are involved in an accident where you are at fault.  There is no cover for fire damage, theft or accidental damage to your own motorcycle.

Third party fire and theft provides the same cover as third party only but lets you claim for fire damage or theft of your motorcycle.

Fully comprehensive insurance cover is the highest level of cover you can buy for your motorcycle. It provides all the cover of the above plus cover for your own motorcycle if you accidentally damage it.


If your motorcycle is involved in an incident – even if you don’t intend to make a claim – you should let us know what’s happened as this is a condition of your insurance.

Every claim is different, and the time it takes to resolve each one may differ, but our in-house claims team is on hand to help things move as efficiently as possible. There are no forms to fill in and our claims line is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.


Every Carole Nash policy comes with DNA+, our forensic security protection system (worth £45) that helps protect your bike and deter thieves. Find out more.

Our Rider Cover is an addition to your policy that allows you to ride your mate’s bike, for social, domestic and pleasure use, with total peace of mind – as we’ve got it covered! As long as you have the owner’s permission and both bikes have comprehensive cover, you can ride any bike, which gives you FREE accidental damage cover when riding that bike, this is subject to meeting the under writing criteria.

We’ll also give you accident and breakdown recovery anywhere in the EU and provide up to £100,000 in motorcycle legal expenses cover which – can be used in the event of an accident which is not your fault. See our benefits explained below in our video.

Finding a suitable motorbike insurance policy for you


It all depends on the motorcycle you own. For example, if you have a bike with a particularly powerful engine, then your motorbike insurance is likely to have a higher premium.

However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your motorcycle insurance always has to be expensive, as there are ways you can lower the cost and get cheaper insurance.

  • Make sure you accurately calculate your miles every year, by looking at past MOTs to see how many miles you’ve covered.
  • Lock your bike up and keep it safely secured in a garage or shed, when you aren’t out riding it.
  • Take extra steps to improve your riding, by going through an approved motorcycle training course, as it could give you discounts of up to 10% with some insurers.
  • Keep your motorcycle insurance in place all year round, as this will help you build up your no claims discount.
  • Consider using physical security such as a chain to deter thieves

These are just some of the ways you can reduce the cost of your bike insurance, and you can find out even more information on our money saving tips guide.

Give one of our bike insurance specialists a call, to find out if we could lower the cost of your insurance now – on 0333 005 3355.

If you want to top up your policy with additional cover to put your mind at ease, you can choose from a number of different options:


If you own a vintage or classic motorcycle and are a member of an approved motorcycle club, or you’ve taken an approved riding qualification, then you could save up to 10% off your insurance premium.

Multi-Bike insurance could save you up to £249 when compared to individual policies taken out over the phone. This allows you to insure more than one bike under one policy. You have one premium, one renewal and one set of paperwork. You can only ride one bike at a time and that’s where a Multi-Bike policy through Carole Nash could help.

But never mind listening to us telling you everything good about Carole Nash.

The Most Popular Insurance Related Questions We Get Asked

Can my motorbike be insured if it’s written off?

It depends on the category of write-off. Category A or B write-offs are recognised as scrap only and/or heavily damaged, meaning we won’t be able to insure you. Category C or D write-offs are repairable and can be insured by some of our underwriters, providing that an MOT and Engineer’s Report are provided.

Can I get electric motorbike insurance?

At Carole Nash, we make getting bike insurance for your electric motorbike easier, by searching through our panel of UK leading motorcycle insurance underwriters. Call us on 0333 005 3355 to discuss electric motorbike insurance today.

Can I get motorbike insurance without CBT?

Compulsory Basic Training is usually required before you ride a moped or motorcycle on the road, and is therefore needed for insurance. However, there are exemptions, such as riding a moped up to a maximum of 50cc.

What motorbike insurance do I need?

There are different types of motorbike insurance and each will cover you in multiple ways. The main types are fully comprehensive, third party fire and theft, and third party only insurance. Getting a quote is easy – you can fill out our online form or call us now on 0333 005 3355.

Can I amend my policy at renewal?

Yes, we can amend your policy. Simply call 0333 005 7555 and let us know what has changed and we will update your details and premium, then discuss the renewal of your policy. If you’re ever unsure about whether to report any change, please check with us at Carole Nash.

Am I covered to carry pillions?

There’s two things you need to check here, first, check your licence to ensure you’re authorised to carry passengers (pillions). And then check your insurance documentation to check you’re covered. You’ll find the section regarding pillion cover approximately half way down the Motorcycle Statement Of Fact sheet.

Can I use my bike abroad?

It depends entirely on your insurer and your cover. But all of our policies allow you to ride in the EU with the same level of cover you have in the UK (at least up until the Brexit date 31st October). The length of time you can ride abroad also depends on your insurer and policy. It can be up to 90 days cover. If you’d like to ride outside the European Economic Area (EEA), you will need to acquire a Green Card.

Does my policy entitle me to ride other people’s bikes?

Potentially! Just check your certificate and the terms and conditions in your policy documents. Carole Nash Rider Cover is something we offer which is an added benefit for bikers who might need to borrow a friends bike. All you need is the owners permission and you’ll be covered. Rider Cover is included with any new motorbike policies arranged through us.

How long will it take for my documents to arrive?

Documents via post can take up to 5 working days to arrive. Documents via email should be in your inbox within 24 hours. If you require duplicate documents we can post or email them over to you, just let us know.

How is my motorbike insurance calculated?

There are a number of factors that are taken into account when calculating your policy, such as how old you are; where you live; how you use your bike; riding history; security of your bike; insurance excess and the type of cover you are looking for just to name a few.
