Zing Cover Welcomes Brompton Bike Hire

At Zing Cover, we’re all about empowering consumer-facing businesses with smarter insurance that really benefits their customers.

Micro mobility insurance should be as easy as riding a bike

As many of us get moving again after the lockdowns, more and more of us are turning to cycle hire operators as an affordable and convenient mode of transport that’s as kind to our health as it is to the environment.  But, whilst hiring a bike can be as easy as opening an app, getting insurance to protect against a rider’s liability for loss, theft, or damage was far from straight forward with annual contracts, tedious applications, and inappropriate terms and conditions.

When we started talking with our great friends at Brompton Bike Hire, we quickly realised the sector is a perfect fit with Zing Cover.  What was needed was an insurance platform which could seamlessly integrate with their customer-facing app, working behind the scenes to identify the risks faced by them and their customers and to provide dynamic, pay-as-you-go pricing for the risks of their bikes being lost, stolen, or damaged during the period of hire. It sums up Zing Cover’s ethos: better for businesses, better for their customers, simply better insurance.

Game-changing potential

In the words of Brompton Bike Hire’s Managing Director, Julian Scriven:

“5 years ago, when I joined the shared micro-mobility family, I said we should be offering theft/damage protection to our members. Today, half a decade of “can’t be done”s has turned into a yes thanks to Robert Korzinek and the amazing team at Zing Cover.I think my friends and colleagues in shared micro-mobility will understand the game-changing potential of this, especially when breaking down barriers for people to start cycling.”
