I cannot express enough how bad my experience has been with cycle guard.
They cancelled my policy without telling me and so when my bike was stolen and I tried to claim they are saying there is no active policy. No one contacted me to let me know, no one sent me an email and there is apparently nothing they can do. However they did still manage to take money out my account!
I have raised a complaint but unsurprisingly now no-one is getting back to me. Do not get insured with them, absolutely awful.

Had bicycle insurance and subsequently changed my bike so needed to revisit the insurance. This so happened to fall at the end of the term. I wanted to shop around so I instructed them specifically not to renew. Then they took money out of my bank as they had decided to automatically renew my policy after ignoring my emails. Wrote 5 emails more to them, nobody responded. Got through to someone on the phone who didn't have any information on my correspondence. Have since wrote to them (a letter!) to their call center and to their offices - STILL NO RESPONSE a month on. They owe me two months as refund. Still no one talks to me. AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID

Avoid at all costs!

This company is a complete scam. After failing to pay out for my stolen bike I was told that my payments would be cancelled and the account closed. Three weeks later and the monthly charge went out of my bank account (even though I no longer had a bike to insure!). I was then told that the account had not been closed and I in fact owe the company a £10 cancellation fee too! Understandably I was not impressed given that I had been told the account was cancelled and no further payments would be taken. The company finally said they will reimburse the money but over THREE MONTHS later I am still waiting!

Overall this company is incredibly untrustworthy and I would avoid if possible.

Excellent service !

Having a bike stolen is stressful and time consuming, when it happens out of the blue. Jamie from Cycleguard was very efficient and processed everything quickly.

Excellent bike insurance

Have had cover for last 4 years and when I had to make a claim they made the procedure very easy and settled very quickly. Very glad I decided to have the policy.

I got a bike through Cycle Scheme and insured it as we had to. My experience with insurance companies hasn't always been great. My bike got stolen and when it did my first thought was: I'm never going to get money back. But, Cyclegaurd have been brilliant! I could easily see from their website what I needed to do, and sent off my claim. Kevin Wakefield assisted me and answered any questions I had, and my payout is on its way so I can replace my bike. Wahoo!

The most refreshing element of the experience was being treated with respect and not being made to feel like a criminal in having to make a claim. The representatives I spoke to over the course of the claim were all, without fail, polite, friendly and did what they said they would do.

The policy was competitively priced, through the link with British Cycling membership and was pleasantly clear on levels of cover and exclusions.

I have always been happy with the service I've received from CycleGuard / Thistle on the rare occasion I need to use them.

It's not pleasant to have an old, faithful bike stolen, or have it damaged in a collision, but CycleGuard have you covered. They are quick to respond, and will get you back on the road in no time.

Very happy with the service!

Smooth and Straightforward

Initially phoned up re whether I was covered and the representative was very helpful, then the claim was processed quickly and efficiently - claim actually settled before my bike has been repaired - Cycle shop are the ones who are being slow!

I recently had to make a third claim in 4 years on my Cycleguard Policy. Previously each claim was settled quickly and with little fuss. On this last occasion they were more thorough as they I believe they had become understandably suspicious. the Claim was looked into much more thoroughly eventually being referred to one of Cunningham Lindseys "special Investigators" I presume they suspected fraud. The Loss Adjuster was very thorough and I believe investigated the loss diligently. I cooperated fully and eventually the claim was upheld in my favour. It was a drawn out process and took approximately 3 months to conclude. I may not be happy about the time scale and one or two interactions but they all did their jobs well and as I said prior diligently. You can't fault a company for that.

After losing my bike I provided the company with all the required details.
There response was very quick with money for a new bike. Nit wanting to go to their tied cycle company I chise yo go elsewhere. Cycle guard provided me with a voucher for the new company no trouble and then followed up when the company were slow in sending the voucher out.
Thank you Holli in settlements.
