Where to get motorbike insurance quotes in Ireland
As the popularity of motorbikes in Ireland continues to increase thanks to the high price of fuel, more and more people are finding it difficult to find insurance for their new vehicles. With the country being such a small market in comparison to the rest of Europe, it isn't totally unexpected that finding motorbike insurance quotes in Ireland isn't as easy as you might have at first thought.
For all intents and purposes, the market is limited to just four main insurance companies. These four are the only ones who will offer cover for motorbike riders without requiring them to take out an additional policy to cover either their car or their home. Although such requirements are surprising given the relative lack of alternatives, nobody really seems to have made it their business to try to kick start the motorbike insurance market, leaving it up to the four we mentioned.
These four are Quinn Direct, Aon Bikecare, Carole Nash and Adelaide Insurance. Each of them offer the facility for fast quotes via their websites (which you can find the addresses for below), and each offer a variety of different coverage options.
If you're a younger rider, you're likely to run into the problem of high premiums based on your age and lack of experience alone. This can be tackled by agreeing to take an advanced motorbike riding course as approved by the insurance company you decide on taking out your policy with. Of course, the cost of this course will be entirely at your own expense, and there is no guarantee that it will be successful, but it's a worthwhile exercise if you are confident in your abilities to meet requirements.
