CDW – Bike insurance
Minor scratches caused by falling over or dropping the bike do not have to be covered by the participant. But if the motorcycle is damaged and requires repair, there is a vehicle damage excess charge for fully repaired on the motorcycle unless the person has purchased a motorcycle insurance in the amount of 160 euros that we offer and covers all damage which can happen to the motorcycle during the trip with the exception of damage caused by the rider by very dangerous riding.
The included insurance is basic liability insurance and covers damages of other vehicles in the case of collision and medical insurance for the rider and any others involved in an accident. CDW insurance (coverage of the cost of making necessary repairs to the bike) is extra and an additional 160 Euros per person, per tour. Riders understand that if the CDW insurance is not purchased, they are liable for and all damages to the motorcycle. Damage caused willfully or due to reckless behavior is not covered by any insurance.
Participants are required to have medical health and accident insurance that also covers transportation back to the home country. Insurance documents must be presented upon demand.
For South African tours, medical travel insurance information will be shared with participants to be insured with approved partners before the tour commences.
We recommend that all our customers check what their home insurance covers. Some insurances have a cancellation cover that covers the entire amount or part of it.
