Have you ever heard of Vehicle Replacement Insurance for a motorbike before? Well if the answer is no then do not despair, you are not alone! Vehicle Replacement Insurance, or VRI Gap Insurance as it is also know, is one of the newest types of Gap Insurance on the market today.
As you will know if you have looked through the site, vehicle replacement insurance will cover the difference between the motorbike value when it is written off, and the cost of replacing the motorbike with the model equivalent to the one you bought the policy for. So if it is a brand new Honda Goldwing, then the cost of the equivalent Goldwing, even if that is higher than the original price you paid.
Why Vehicle Replacement Insurance?
Why Vehicle Replacement Insurance is worth considering is simply that inflation is not something that the more simple Return to Invoice type of Gap Insurance can cover. It is still great for you that a RTI Gap policy will get back the original price you paid, but you still have to replace the motorbike. With Vehicle Replacement Insurance you can get the funds necessary to do just that.
