Frequently asked questions
There is some debate over which models are deemed classics and which are seen as vintage. So, to make it clear, many of our providers class any bike aged 30+ years as a vintage ride. For example, are you the proud owner of a 1992 Honda Fireblade? That's now a vintage, baby!
If your bike is between 10 and 29 years old, you might want to compare quotes for classic or modern classic insurance policies.
We'll help you compare vintage motorbike insurance from some of the UK's leading providers. And the beauty of owning a ride of that age is that you could gain access to a wide range of benefits on your policy, such as:
- Riding in Europe for up to 90 days
- Any other bikes you own, via a multi bike policy
- Riding other people's bikes, with their permission
- Protection for your no-claims bonus
- Nil excess
- Unlimited mileage
- Cover for spare and dismantled parts
- Agreed value for free
- Static display cover for shows and events
- Cover for club rallies
- Salvage retention
As with insurance for other motorcycles, there are three levels of cover from which you can choose.
This is the minimum level of cover that you are legally required to have. It provides you with cover for damage caused to other people and their vehicles or property.
Third-party, fire and theft insurance
This includes everything that a third-party policy would cover, as well as cover for theft and fire damage to your vintage ride.
Comprehensive insurance covers everything that you would get at one of the lower levels, plus accidental damage to your motorcycle - even if you were at fault.
There isn’t one straightforward answer to this question, but you can expect several factors to affect the price of your premium, including:
- The model of your vintage bike and its engine size
- Your age and riding experience
- The value of your vintage bike
- The level of cover that you require
- Any previous claims or convictions
- Any modifications made to your bike
- Optional add-ons
- Where you store your bike
- Any security measures that you have in place
