Get the right cover for your gear

Whether you a first-time-runner or an avid cycling enthusiast, insuring your cycling and running accessories are important.

At Santam, we want to help you make sure you've got the right cover for your sports gear, which is why we offer cover for your running shoes, bicycle as well as any running and cycling technology (including your cell phone, I-pod or running watch) under our All risks cover. This insurance cover will compensate you in the event of loss or damage to items you normally wear outside your home. Specific sporting gear such as your cycling kit, helmet and cleats can also be specified under your personal insurance policy.

Remember that your bicycle is automatically covered against theft, burglary and fire under the household section of your personal insurance policy whilst inside your private residence or outbuildings that inter-lead with your residence, such as your garage.
