Only one thing can improve cruising the open road on your bike: knowing you've scored motorcycle insurance discounts while you do it. We'll bring you up to speed on how to cut your premium.
Motorcycle insurance savings and discounts are fun, refreshing, and prone to drawing envious stares from your fellow bikers (like your motorcycle itself). Here are some of the policy perks you might be able to score when you get a motorcycle insurance quote.
When you start a policy with Esurance or through our partner, you can discover another great way to save: loyalty rewards.
By maintaining that policy over time, you could qualify for the following motorcycle benefits:
This perk helps prevent your rate from increasing (and thus keeps money in your wallet) if you cause a minor accident on your bike.
Being a truly loyal customer shouldn't go unnoticed. That's why longtime policyholders (4-plus years) get the benefit of the doubt even if they have a major at-fault claim. If you and the drivers on your policy have been claim- and violation-free for at least 3 years, your rate won't be affected after your first big incident (cue that sigh of relief).
What payment plans are available for motorcycle insurance policies?
This varies depending on a variety of factors. If you choose to pay your premium in one fell swoop, your motorcycle insurance rate will be a bit lower thanks to the Paid-in-Full discount.
If you choose to pay quarterly or monthly, you can use a credit card, PayPal account, personal check, or Electronic Funds Transfer from your checking account. Payments can be made online or over the phone at any time. You'll be able to select your preferred payment plan when you get your motorcycle insurance quote.
How can I find the cheapest motorcycle insurance policy?
Motorcycle policies can be surprisingly affordable. Get a free motorcycle insurance quote to see how much your policy will cost, but keep in mind that a cheap motorcycle insurance policy has inherent risks. The less coverage you buy, the cheaper your policy will be, but if you get in an accident you could end up paying significantly more for damages, medical payments, and other expenses.
I'm a first-time rider. What's the average cost of motorcycle insurance?
Many factors go into a motorcycle insurance premium, which makes it challenging to provide a reliable average cost. If you have a clean driving record, that works in your favor. If you drive for a number of years without filing a claim, your rate could go down accordingly.
In contrast, a lack of experience on 2 wheels may place you in a higher risk class. Your motorcycle's make, model, year, and condition will all impact your rate, as will the coverages, deductibles, and limits you select, and other factors. We suggest doing a motorcycle insurance comparison after getting multiple quotes.
I hear women get cheaper motorcycle rates than men. Can you explain?
All things being equal, motorcycle insurance rates can cost less for women based on data about which gender is less accident-prone.
In practice, it's not as simple as apples to apples. Age, location, driving history, the make and model of your bike, the age of the bike, riding experience, and other factors are all taken into account when you get a motorcycle insurance quote. The best way to get a low rate is to purchase a safe, reliable bike and maintain a clean riding record.
