It’s great taking your own bike and kit on your Saddle Skedaddle adventure. You’ve worked hard to earn it, you know it all fits well, and you’re familiar with it all.
Things to consider...
Before you pack your bags and prepare your bike, it’s worth checking you have insurance sorted, and that you understand what protection you have.
Your travel insurance may give you all the cover you need, but if it’s not designed specifically for bike adventures, you should check the details:
1. Check the limits on your ‘total’ and ‘single item‘ possessions. This is the maximum you’ll get in any claim. The limits may be well below the value of your bike(s) and kit.
2. The most common type of cycle insurance claim is accidental damage of bikes, accessories and clothing. Many travel insurance policies won’t cover you for this.
3. Check that the activities you are going to be doing on the trip are included. Look out for exclusions for organised tours and off-road riding, for example.
