Most people have mixed feelings when they hear the word insurance. Some would say it’s an overly complicated world of premiums and policies, but we want to simplify that. We want to make insurance accessible and easy so everyone can understand its terms and conditions and be protected.

Why we thought about innovating our products by offering something no other company is offering at the moment?

The Laka Club extends Laka’s core insurance giving members access to more perks beyond insurance for their bicycle. The first perk is third-party liability insurance underwritten by MGAM/ Builders Direct S.A. The cover includes £2m of global coverage during regular commutes, ride outs and club rides, commercial use, and races. More perks from major brands will be rolled out over the coming weeks.

"We constantly aim to push boundaries and when we identified third-party liability as a gap we didn't hesitate to close it. This coincides with the launch of Laka Club, through which we will offer perks to the cycling community beyond insurance cover, Laka cycles the extra mile", Tobias Taupitz, co-founder of Laka.
