    insuring a hired cycle for theft in spain 10th Jan 18 at 9:55 PM
    Going on a 5 day cycling holiday in May and can't find insurance to cover theft of bike. As the bike will probably retail at 2-3000 it would be painful. The hire shop sells its own insurance but this only includes damage and specifically excludes theft ( which seems common exclusion)

    Preferably without stringent heavy lock requirements

    any ideas?
    Finding an exception is NOT the same as disproving the rule.

    You could try your own home insurance company or I am sure there are specialist cycle tour companies who could point you in the right direction.

    As far as the lock requirements, I'm not sure what else you would expect? High risk country but you want a low premium for a 3000 bike with no lock? That doesn't make any sense unless you are planning some kind of insurance fraud
