3. Avoid a lapse in No Claim Bonus (NCB)

You receive a bike insurance renewal premium discount for not raising claims during the policy period. This remains in effect for 90 days after the policy expiry date. Post this period, the NCB lapses. With long term bike insurance, you don’t have to worry about an annual lapse in NCB.

4. Break-in policy
