Sometimes you just can’t get a replacement bike soon enough, and no one can lend you one. That’s okay; our Emergency Hire cover allows you to rent any bike up to the value of £500 for the rental period. This means any plans you had involving riding don’t have to be put on hold, and that holiday you’ve been looking forward to all year can go ahead.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO ME?
Emergency Hire not only applies for events and races; it even covers you for holidays too. This means that you can be back on the road or trail quickly and easily, and our partners at Bikmo can even help you source a replacement from a worldwide network of bike rental companies.
EMERGENCY HIRE CASE STUDY
Barry’s been training up for months, piling on the miles ready for that big race. The final week of training is going well… then two days before the race, his bike gets pinched! There’s not enough time to find a new bike, and with those custom wheels that came from Italy he’d added to his original bike, there’s no chance he’ll have his new bike in time.
Usually, this would be game over for Barry; we think that’s wrong, and we wanted Barry to get to that race, put in a ridiculous time and gain some bragging rights for beating the pack. Bikmo helped him source a hire bike of a similar specification and covered the cost of the rental, letting him do just that.
What bikes can I hire?
