Here at Carole Nash, we source various policies for different aged bikes, including vintage, future classic and classic bike insurance. For this reason, it’s important to understand the differences so you can select a policy that’s suited to the bike you own.

If your motorcycle is between 20 and 30 years old, then it qualifies for classic motorbike insurance. A motorbike that’s over 30 years old is eligible for a vintage motorcycle insurance policy. Meanwhile, a bike that’s between 10 and 20 years old will benefit from a future classic bike insurance policy.

Classic motorcycle insurance allows you to take to the road with confidence - knowing that your bike is covered for the unexpected. You can take advantage of a range of benefits with this policy, such as low mileage discounts, a low excess, and salvage retention rights.

Another key benefit of getting classic bike insurance through us is that we offer agreed value as standard. This means that you’ll be paid an agreed sum should your motorcycle be stolen or written off, instead of being paid the market rate value at the time of the claim. This is particularly appealing to classic motorbike owners, as the market value may not reflect the true value of your bike.

You’ll also have peace of mind knowing your classic motorbike insurance covers various situations in addition to your time on the road. For example, if you plan to show your motorbike on a static display at a show, then you’ll know it’s protected in the worst-case scenario.

There are various levels of cover available, so it’s essential to choose one that’s most suited to you. Comprehensive policies offer the highest level of cover and include accidental damage, third-party, fire and theft, while third-party cover may be suitable if you’re looking for a lower level of classic bike insurance.

Laid-up policies that provide cover for bikes that aren’t being ridden are also available. No matter what level of cover you need, we’ll aim to help you find the right classic motorbike insurance. Simply give us a call on 0333 005 3355 if you need any help.

We want to make sure you get suitable cover. Classic bike insurance policies taken out through Carole Nash come with a range of benefits. These may include:

  • UK & European breakdown and accident recovery, including Homestart
  • Up to £100,000 legal expenses cover in the event of an accident which is not your fault
  • European cover up to 90 days
  • Access to eRescue in the UK
  • Agreed value and salvage retention rights available
