Electric Bicycle Insurance

Many people expect their electric bicycles to be covered by their standard Swiss insurance policies, for 3rd party risks and for theft. But....

The Swiss consumer magazine Beobachter reports that the standard insurance cover, on the more powerful models, is not very good, and you should check if the bicycle is adequately covered.

You can buy the Beobachter magazine at any Kiosk, and most supermarkets.


The strong demand for electric bikes has also created new insurance offers: Bâloise, Generali, Helvetia, Mobiliar and «Zurich» have special e-bike insurance. These cover not only theft or damage, but also breakdown assistance, vandal damage or legal protection, depending on the product. The cost of an e-bike worth CHF 3,000 is between CHF 70 and CHF 200; With a 5000-franc e-bike it is 110 to 270 francs.
