mAINTAINING A HOME
What’s covered if your bike is stolen?
25 August 2022
Whether you ride your bike to work every day or just take it for a spin on the weekend, dealing with a lost or stolen bike is annoying and can be expensive.
How do you insure your bicycle?
Bike insurance at home
These policies cover your bike at your home if it’s stolen or damaged in an insured event such as fire, flood, storm etc.
Bike insurance away from home
To cover your bike away from home, you may want to consider adding Personal Valuables Insurance to your Suncorp Contents Insurance policy – insuring your bike as either a specified or unspecified item, depending on how much it’s worth.
As an unspecified personal valuables item, your bike will be covered up to a maximum of $1000.
To insure your bike for an amount higher than $1000, you’ll need to specify the bike (make, model, etc) and let us know it's value.
Specified or unspecified, your bike is covered, even if damaged in an accident while you’re cycling (as long as you’re not pace-making or racing).
For more details on this cover, check out ‘Personal Valuables’ in your Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).
How to insure your bicycle with Suncorp Insurance
To get bicycle cover, add the optional extra ‘Personal Valuables’ when getting a quote online for Suncorp Home and Contents or Contents Only insurance. Personal Valuables Insurance also covers items you take with you when you leave the house, such as your mobile phone, laptop and jewellery.
How to make a bicycle claim under your insurance policy
Making a bicycle claim is easy – here’s what to do:
Step 1: Have your policy number and event details ready. Evidence of ownership or a bike repair quote may speed up the claims process, but isn’t necessary to make a claim.
Step 4: We’ll arrange a repair, replacement or cash settlement if your claim is covered.
