With our bicycle insurance, we offer you comprehensive cover that protects you against theft and material damage to your bicycle. This comprehensive cover can be taken out for bicycles up to 3 years old, for a maximum amount of €10,000, including VAT. Accessories are included apart from easily detachable items and their holders, including but not limited to GPS, milometer, camera, etc.
You also get assistance cover when you take out the comprehensive cover.
If your bicycle does not need pedal assistance, third-party liability cover is also required by law. In that case, this is automatically included in our cover. This covers you against damage caused to third parties.
You can also always take out additional personal accident insurance.
Third-party bicycle insurance reimburses you for the cost of material damage and bodily injury (for which you are legally liable) caused by you to third parties as a result of using your bicycle.
With the legal assistance cover, the insurer will also cover the legal costs of defending you if you are held liable for such incidents. If you incur damages caused by a liable third party, then the insurer will endeavour to recover these damages.
The comprehensive cover insures you against damage caused to your bicycle.
Please note: in order for the theft cover to apply, the bicycle must be secured to a solid object with a lock (minimum value of 60 €, excluding VAT) at the time of the theft.
If the bicycle is parked in a commune of the Brussels-Capital Region (from postal code 1000 to 1210), the bicycle must be parked in a private, fully enclosed, covered and locked room (with no obligation of attachment to a fixed point via the chain lock referred to), or in a room accessible only to authorised persons (with obligation of attachment to a fixed point via the chain lock referred to);

The indemnity depends on the age of the bicycle at the time of the claim.
The amount of the indemnity is:
The "invoice value" means the amount of the purchase invoice for the bicycle and/or accessories when new. This amount includes VAT, unless this is deductible.
Indemnity at "actual value" means compensation for the value of the insured bicycle and/or accessories on the date of the claim, as fixed by an adjuster. If the amount of the indemnity at actual value exceeds the amount of the indemnity at agreed value, the indemnity will be calculated based on the actual value, limited in all cases to the invoice value paid by the policyholder.
In the event of total loss or theft, the limit of indemnity will be €6,000.
An excess only applies to racing or mountain bikes under the comprehensive cover.
Therefore, no excess applies to electric bicycles and city bikes (or other bicycles).
