no
legally you only need standard bike insurance, just check your policy docs to ensure IoM is covered

medical insurance is simply to cover any additonal costs should the worst happen

make sure you get an "EHIC" card from the NHS, this should cover emergency treatment costs
i'd suggest as a minium you get 'travel insurance' that covers you for ambulance & repatriation in the event of an accident
the issue is, some travel insurance companies dont cover you for an accident that occured while riding a motorcycle over XXXXcc
and the 'accident insurance' that you get thru your bike insurance wont cover you for anycosts incured due to injury while 'not' on a motorcycle
therefore sometimes you end up having to buy multiple insurance policies
just make sure you read the small print on anything you take out
I normally send off an email to the broker or insurance company stating what I intend to do and asking them to confirm their policy covers everything

Cheers Tony,

They sure like to complicate matters innit ?
So thats....

"EHIC" card from the NHS

'travel insurance' that covers ambulance & repatriation minimum.

check bike policy docs to ensure IoM is covered for RTT dates.


My bike insurance is with the AA so I'll see what they can do for me first.

Just checked my bike policy and it's up for renewal before the RTT which may/may not help matters !

Conflicting date with my north to Alaska (Arctic Ocean) trip. One of these years I'll join you all.

BTW, I *think* I've found the problem with my carbs - stay tuned. Looks like it might be a failed carb gasket/seal. Will post on PNW2009 thread when I get that sorted for sure, to close out that fcking nightmare problem.

Hi Dave

Glad to see you are on the same iten..itinera...ittin..ferry as me

I will bring coffee flasks to drink on the quayside.

Will do my best re. weather arrangements. Actually it was great in July '07 and even better than for the TT that year



More info on possible plans for the week to follow soon e.g. coastal walks (as above) is a cracker for those interested


All the best

Pete

Going to sort out my booking this week. I'm aiming to go Saturday 10th July, returning on Wednesday 14th. Ferries from Liverpool work out at:
Sat 10th July 2010, depart 11:30, arrive 14:00.
Wed 14th July 2010 depart15:30, arrive 18:15.
Price is advertised as 99.50 at the moment. Anyone know of any discounts we can get? Anyone else doing the same sailings?
I'll be staying at staying at Cronk Dhoo, so I'll call Lynn to book once I've sorted the ferry. Do I just need to mention your name Pete so we're all in the same bunkhouse?

EDIT: Ferries booked now as above, but price was 109.50, not 99.50. I misread the web page.

some information on health insurance now that reciprocal arrangement seems to be definitely ended

this link is through S100 websiute which you may wish to browse anyway

http://www.southern1...h_agreement.htm

I know most will have made some arrangement but this may help and seems to be indirect response to current situation

Well done Chris - I spoke to Lynne at GlenDhoo yesterday and she was hoping to hear from our crowd. This lets her know we are on our way!

For info, the text below was posted on the TT forum and may help with insurance choices:

Hi all, just had a reply from direct travel insurance, below (hopefully ) is the e-mail I sent them and the reply I got........ Cheers, dave

MY E-MAIL

Hi, could you please verify something for me before I take out a policy, with the withdrawal of the Reciprocal Health Agreement with the UK will I still be covered to ride on the isle of man between the dates of 29th may - 10th june with the standard single trip travel insurance you offer, we will be travelling as a family riding:
myself riding + daughter pillion 636cc motorcycle
wife riding 650cc motorcycle
daughters boyfriend riding 500cc motorcycle.


Thank you, david burt

REPLY

Dear Mr Burt,

Thank you for your email.

Our Standard policies will cover you up to 10 million per person for Medical emergency, repatriation and associated expenses under section 2 whilst travelling on the Isle of Man.

You and your family would be covered for riding motorcycles over 125cc providing each rider holds a valid UK licence which allows them to ride a motorcycle of over 125cc.

If we can be of further assistance, please contact us at info@direct-travel.co.uk

Kind regards

Claire Humphrey

Sales Consultant

AND ALL FOR 12.35
not here for a long time-here for a good time


not sure if it will apply to everyone but it is all extra info

you pay your money and take your choice, but there seems to be plenty of opportunity to get cover

Pete
