Motorcycle Breakdown Cover
Motorbike Breakdown Cover
Motorcycle breakdown cover is an essential part of being a biker. Unfortunately, adverse weather or months in storage can result in flat batteries and mechanical issues. It's important to have a motorbike breakdown service in place, and GEM's breakdown cover is here to help any type of biker.
We understand that as a motorbike driver, you may need to make good use of our Home Assistance service. There's no penalty for that, it is included as standard, as is Roadside Assistance, Nationwide Recovery and Onward Travel.
All GEM's personal breakdown policies include motorcycle breakdown cover for you and your motorcycle, and any other eligible vehicle* you are travelling in, at no extra cost. This means, if you have more than one vehicle (bikes or cars) your policy covers all of them at no additional cost. We provide motorcycle breakdown recovery of any engine size and any age.
Our policyholders are always welcome to use our 24-hour breakdown control centre. However, we fully understand that many motorcycle owners often prefer to use a specialist garage, which knows their motorcycle inside-out.
If you do wish to use a garage of your choice for motorcycle roadside recovery, then under our special Recovery RECLAIM policy, you can arrange this, paying the recovery operator for your repair or recovery and then reclaiming the appropriate costs from GEM afterwards. Of course, you can contact our 24-hour control centre at any time if your favoured garage is closed.
Our Motorcycle Cover includes:
- Vehicle of any age & engine size
- Unlimited callouts
- Running out of fuel
- Flat battery
- Punctured tyre
- Rider illness
A policy and service for YOU
GEM breakdown cover is personal. This means you are covered as a driver or passenger in any eligible vehicle* you are travelling in.
We're also on call if you're driving a hired or borrowed vehicle. We can even help if you fall ill at the wheel. We look after you.
We can cover up to four drivers in your household so you can all be covered, whatever you drive. We provide the best breakdown cover available on a budget. When you compare our policies with similar ones, you'll find we're cheaper.
