This enables you to spread the annual cost and pay monthly by Direct Debit. This facility is provided by a simple finance agreement with Thistle Insurance Services Limited.
The single annual premium cost is increased to include interest and divided by 12 to calculate the monthly payments.

Cycleguard Rescue is an emergency roadside recovery service for cyclists. It is a unique rescue service brought to you by Cycleguard with the recovery service provided by Call Assist, one of the UK's biggest rescue specialists.
If you became unable to complete a journey in the UK due to a cycling accident, vandalism or irreparable breakdown of your bike, Call Assist will take you and your bicycle to a bicycle repair shop, railway station, car rental agency or your home or alternative overnight accommodation if either are nearer.
It's worth noting that any roadside breakdown must have occurred at least a quarter of a mile away from your home to be eligible to use your Cycleguard Rescue cover.
Cycleguard Rescue costs just £18 per bicycle for 12 months of cover or £13 if you are adding Rescue to a Cycleguard policy which will cover your bike against theft and accidental damage.
Unfortunately the policy will only cover one specified bike. If you have more than one bike, you'll need separate cover for each one.
I was delighted with the service and help I got today from Cycleguard. I needed to make a claim and was talked through the process. Tom was a pleasure to talk to and extremely helpful.
