Every business has terms and conditions, we try to keep ours simple. Get in touch if you have a question. Services we provide:
As a non-advised business we will never offer an advised service, practically this means we won’t ever make a recommendation of any product via our panel of insurers.
Next Generation Ins Group Ltd is an appointed representative of Innovative Risk Ltd. Who are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Firm Reference Number is 609155. You can check these details online (www.fca.org.uk) using the Financial Services Register.
You’re required to take reasonable care not to make a misrepresentation to us and the insurer. This means that all the answers you provide and statements that you make as part of your application to obtain, manage, change and renew your insurance must be honest and accurate. If you’re found to have deliberately or carelessly misinformed us and the insurer(s), this could mean that part of or all of any claim may not be paid or your policy may be voided from inception.
Before deciding to cancel please contact us and ensure you’ve referred to your policy terms and conditions for more information on how the cancellation will be processed and what cooling off period applies.
When you cancel we will normally issue a pro-rata refund less any administrative cost both us and the insurer may apply. However this may not always be the case and you may not be eligible for a refund, for example, if a claim has occurred during the insurance period no refund of premium will be due on cancellation More information on our administration charges can be found below.
We will pay the additional premium to remove a bike from your policy in force and add a new bike which is of a higher value. We'll require a receipt evidencing that you've just purchased your new bike and you'll need to have removed an existing bike on cover. The maximum additional premium we will pay is capped at £100 in any one period of insurance. This benefit is not available when you're adding a new bike to your multi-bike policy - additional bikes are already discounted by up to 25%.
We will issue a renewal notice within 30 days of your renewal date, we will always show you last years premium, including Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) so you can compare the renewal premium we're offering you vs what you paid last year.
Unless you've instructed us not to we will automatically renew your policy. If we cannot automatically renew your policy because payment cannot be taken then we'll contact you and ask you how you wish for us to proceed and if we hear nothing back we'll cancel the renewal.
We take the privacy of your data seriously and as such all personal information about you will be treated as private and confidential (even when you are no longer a customer), except where the disclosure is made at your request or with your consent in relation to administering your insurance or where we are required by law.
By agreeing to our terms of business at checkout/purchase of your insurance policy, you provide NextGen insurance with the consent to initiating a payment(s) for a mid-term adjustment, administration fee(s) and policy renewal(s) (these amounts could differ to your original payment amount as insurance prices can change), or a series of payments on your behalf using this method.
Whether you opt for a monthly or annually payable policy with NextGen Insurance we'll set up a recurring subscription - this will be monthly or annually.
If you've opted to pay monthly we'll collect the monthly instalments on the monthly anniversary of the date in which your first payment was made. At renewal the price of your policy may increase or decrease and we'll amend your existing subscription to reflect the change in premium and continue taking payments following renewal, unless you tell us not to do so. This ensures you're afforded continuous cover - don't worry, you can tell us if you don't want your policy to renew.
If you've opted to pay annually we'll set up an annual subscription. At renewal the price of your policy may increase or decrease and we'll amend your existing subscription to reflect the change in premium and continue taking payments following renewal, unless you tell us not to do so. This ensures you're afforded continuous cover - don't worry, you can tell us if you don't want your policy to renew.For annually payable policies the renewal payment will be taken 3 days prior to the annual anniversary date in which your first payment was made.
We'll always use the card that you used to purchase your insurance policy, unless you've updated this in which case we'll use your new card payment details to collect these payments via our payment merchant, Stripe. If we need to charge a different premium to that of your recurring billing plan, or an administration or mid-term adjustment additional premium as a result of a change to your policy we'll do so using a method called 'off session payments' via our Merchant, Stripe.
If you pay your policy monthly we reserve the right to request payment of the remainder of the annual insurance policy if a failed payment occurs. This ensures we are able to reduce the administrative burden and associated fees of failed or missed payments.
If you incorrectly challenged a payment via your bank or building society for your insurance premium or any cancellation or administration fees and those monies were returned to you and we have incurred fees from our payment provider we will ask you to contact your bank to advise them that the payment was correct. If you fail to do this within a reasonable timeframe and we've incurred fees from an incorrectly challenged payment we will deduct these costs from the card that we hold on file.
Please refer to your policy summary or your policy document if you need to notify us of a claim. You should contact the claims administrator as soon as possible as defined in the policy terms and conditions. Upon the claim being approved you will be required to pay the claim excess, this is payable directly to our Claims administrators, Davies Group.
Our administration fees simply cover the costs that we incur for administering changes and for collecting or returning payments where we incur a fee from our payment provider. Here are the details on fees:
Arrangement of new policies and renewals: £0
Policy alterations: £0
Policy cancellation within the 14 day cooling off period (new business and renewal): £0

Our policies cover accidental damage and theft, personal accident, public liability, cycle breakdown and accessory cover (when selected). If you are biking through Europe, you and your bicycle are also covered (see trip limitations in the terms and conditions) We also offer cycle hire while you are without your bicycle during a claim.
Your bicycle might be covered under your home insurance, but the cover is unlikely to cover all of your needs and could leave you without your bicycle for a considerable amount of time as home insurance claims can take a while to resolve.
Home insurance isn’t designed with your bicycle in mind, so is unlikely to cover you for personal accidents, theft away from the home and public liability. Furthermore, if you claim on your home insurance, the excess you may be required to pay could be higher than the cost of having separate bicycle insurance. Naturally, your contents insurance premium may then increase when your policy comes to renewal because of the claim you made.
Please make sure you view the benefits and cover of our bicycle insurance policy before you make a decision. If you’re not sure, give us a call and we’ll help explain our cover options further.
