It's important to first check with the company you have hired the e-scooter or e-bike from to confirm how they cover you. Many companies have terms that state use of their products is at your own risk.
An e-scooter or e-bike rider would generally be covered for legal liability under our contents insurance policy for accidental damage caused to another person’s property while using a hired e-scooter or bike, if needed.
Our customers are covered for up to:
- $2 million for damage to other people’s property, including related legal costs and expenses incurred (with AA Insurance’s consent)
- $250,000 for bodily injury, not including related legal costs and expenses incurred by the customer.
You can find more information about what you're covered for in our policy document, under the section 'Your legal liability'.
