Motorcycle Breakdown Cover from Swinton

As a motorcyclist, there's no better feeling than taking your bike out on the open road, and a breakdown is the last thing you want to be thinking about when you're enjoying the great outdoors.

At Swinton, we want to help you feel confident and reassured while you're out riding your motorcycle, and whether your bike breaks down due to a puncture, a flat battery or a blown head gasket, Swinton's Motorcycle Breakdown Cover provides a number of different options:

  • Our UK & Home policy covers you for any motorbike breakdowns within the UK, including those that happen within a quarter of a mile of your home.

What to do if your motorbike breaks down

Swinton knows just how stressful it is to break down in any vehicle, but breaking down while riding your motorbike can be particularly distressing. Should the weather take a turn for the worse, you won't have any shelter as you would in a car, and you won't be able to replace a burst tyre with a spare.

It can be a scary experience that leaves you feeling quite vulnerable, so as well as ensuring you have the right Motorcycle Breakdown Cover for your needs, make sure you prepare yourself with our confidence-boosting tips:

  • Stay calm and pull over to a safe place.
  • Call your breakdown provider to get help.
  • Ensure you stay visible to other road users.
