There are a few ways in which you can buy bike insurance and one of the most popular ones is buying the policy from the bike dealer. Most people opt for this method because of the following reasons.
Many bike owners assign the task of buying insurance to their dealer as they might not have a lot of time to invest in the process.
Some people perceive insurance as complicated. This is mainly due to the technical language used on bike insurance documents.
Bike dealers build a good relationship with bike owners and help them at various stages of buying their bikes. The bike owner trusts their dealers to provide help with finding the best bike insurance policy.
Due to these reasons, owners allow their bike dealers to select the bike insurance coverage on their behalf. However, this can be counterproductive as the bike owner must be aware of every aspect of the insurance policy.
Let’s look at how you (a bike owner) can buy the bike insurance plan by yourself.
The easiest way of buying bike insurance is selecting a digital-first bike insurance company, like ACKO, to insure the bike. Here are the steps to buy the policy yourself.

Step 3: Select the required coverage, review the plan, and make payment.

Here is a list of benefits of buying your bike insurance policy online instead of buying it from the bike dealer.
Online bike insurance policies are cheaper than offline policies. You pay less money in exchange for probably the same coverage.
Sometimes a bike dealer may suggest buying bike insurance coverage that you may not actually require. For example, add-ons. When you buy the policy yourself, you may skip buying additional coverages but your dealer may insist you opt for add-ons. This will unnecessarily increase the cost of your insurance plan.
Buying bike insurance by yourself allows you to make an informed choice about the coverages. Additionally, you also ensure that you are aware of exclusions of the policy. Doing so helps avoid claim rejection. Hence, buying the bike insurance policy by yourself helps reduce the risk when it comes to being aware of what you have signed up for.
