RETURNING HOME COVER CASE STUDY
Whist out riding in the countryside, some spokes on Beryl’s back wheel snapped and she fell from her bike, damaging a pedal and a shifter. She was unable to fix this at the side of the road, was over 15 miles from her car and 20 miles from the nearest station.
Luckily, Beryl had a policy with Bikmo, so she got in touch and was told her travel costs would be covered. She was able to get a taxi back to her car as it was the closest way to help her get home in time for dinner, and all the transport costs were covered by her insurance.
