E-bike theft insurance premiums soaring. How do you still receive 25% discount?
According to a recent ANWB survey, the number of thefts in 2021 will almost double compared to 2020. CBS's Security Monitor 2021 already showed that 735,000 bikes were stolen in that year, equivalent to about 2,000 per day! In 2022, that increase continued and never before were so many bikes stolen. Many insurers are therefore going to significantly increase premiums and tighten conditions. We give below the main changes from the three biggest bike insurers and a calculation example of what you can save on your insurance if you opt for the Tracefy bike protection.
