If you have a valuable and expensive bicycle or e-bike, it’s a good idea to have your own bicycle insurance.
Things to remember when insuring your bike
If you want your own insurance on your bike or e-bicycle, there are a few things to remember.
- You must have the receipt or proof of purchase for the bike
- The bike must be registered in an FG-approved (insurance approved) register (e.g. Bikemember). With DNB bicycle insurance, you get a 50% discount on the registration by using the code “ftbm” when registering
- If your bike is stolen you must report it to the police
- The bicycle must be locked when you’re not using it
- Bicycles worth over NOK 10 000 must be locked with an FG-approved bike lock.

Important to know about e-bike
Unregistered electric bikes that are sold in Norway cannot exceed speeds of 25 km/h under their own motor power. If you’ve trimmed or bought an electric bike that goes faster than 25 km/h, it’s by definition an electric moped. In this case, neither home contents, travel or bicycle insurance are valid, and you must register it and have statutory liability insurance through separate moped insurance. There are also separate rules for using such vehicles.
