What is pay-as-you-go scooter delivery insurance?

What is pay-as-you-go scooter delivery insurance?

If you’re a scooter delivery rider, our pay-as-you-go hire and reward (H&R) delivery insurance can help you save money on the cost of your cover.

This cover is charged by the minute (with a minimum of 1 hour’s cover), and lets you pause your insurance when you’re not working. It’s a more flexible way to get insured, so it’s great for part-time scooter delivery riders or seasonal workers.

What's the difference between moped and scooter insurance?

Cost

Cost


The main difference between moped and scooter insurance is the cost. Because mopeds have a smaller engine size and slower top speed than scooters, they’re usually considered less risky. The lower the risk, the lower the insurance cost.

Mopeds have an engine size of up to 50cc, and can reach top speeds of around 28mph.

Scooters tend to be more powerful, with the largest engine sizes ranging all the way up to 750cc. So they can go much faster.

Policy Type

Policy Type


Another thing that can affect the cost is the type of insurance policy you choose.

Third party, fire and theft policies tend to be cheaper as the cover is quite limited — if you’re involved in a collision, only third party drivers are covered for accidental damage or personal injury. Whereas a fully comprehensive policy will cover you and other drivers, and can even include things like breakdown cover.

So before you choose moped or scooter insurance, it’s best to check what’s included in your cover.

It's day one and I’m impressed. Spoke with Zego twice today to insure my scooter. Lovely customer service, the staff are friendly and happy to help. I also got the best price I've ever had. Saving £400 this year on insurance. Hope to do business with Zego for a long time!
