What won't be covered?

How much does it cost?

There are several factors that could influence your NRMA Motorcycle Insurance premiums, including:

  • Your bike. The value you insure your bike for will affect the cost of premiums.
  • Where you keep it. Bikes kept in a secure, locked garage are cheaper to insure than bikes that aren’t.
  • The age of the insured riders. Younger riders are statistically more likely to make a claim and therefore have higher premiums.
  • Claims history of the insured riders. Your previous claims history will also be taken into account when determining the likelihood of you making a future claim.
  • How you use your bike. Your premium will vary based on whether you use your bike for private or business purposes.
  • Any discounts that apply. A No-claim Bonus and loyalty discount can also reduce the cost of premiums.

What excess will I be charged?

If you make a claim on your NRMA Motorcycle Insurance, you will need to pay an excess to contribute towards the cost of that claim. The certificate of insurance shows the types and amounts of excesses that apply to your policy, which may include:

  • Basic excess. This applies to most claims. If you have a Comprehensive policy, you can change the amount of this excess to alter the cost of your premiums.
  • Age excess. This excess is payable when the driver at the time of an incident is under 25 years of age, or over 25 but with less than two years of driving experience.
  • Special excess. Any special excess that applies will be outlined in your certificate of insurance.

Making a claim with NRMA

If you’re involved in an accident, make sure everyone is safe and phone the emergency services if required. You can then gather the names and details of all other riders/drivers and witnesses involved in the incident.

Alternatively, if you’re the victim of theft, attempted theft or a malicious act, you must notify the matter to the police immediately and record the details of your report.

You can contact NRMA Insurance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week over the phone or online to lodge your claim. If needed, NRMA can arrange the towing of your vehicle after an incident.

For approved claims, NRMA will either:

  • Repair your vehicle
  • Pay you the reasonable cost to repair your vehicle
  • Pay your claim as a total loss
  • Pay for other benefits

Some final questions you might have

Before you choose any motorcycle insurance policy to protect your bike, it’s important to compare a range of policies to determine which one offers the best value.
