VOLT announces partnership with award-winning insurance firm LAKA

Posted on in Brands & Products News , Cycles News , Outdoor News by Voltâ„¢

November 28th, London: VOLT today announces its new insurance collaboration with LAKA, three-time winners of the Best Cycle Insurance Provider category at the Insurance Choice Awards and pioneers of the ‘collective insurance’ scheme.

The partnership will be celebrated with an exclusive 30-day free bicycle insurance trial, available online to all VOLT riders, new and old. This collaboration is another step in the UK-based manufacturer’s sustained drive to deliver exceptional products to its customers, with VOLT seeking to ensure that from day one and beyond riders are supported along every step of their journey.

Just as VOLT continues to expand apace with their focus on innovation, so too does LAKA, with their collective insurance scheme disrupting the industry. LAKA’s collective insurance splits the monthly claims cost across the entire community of riders, a month without any claims is a month without any payment from you and the whole collective. Riders are intrinsically tied to one another, with the system designed to nurture community spirit.

LAKA’s partnership works in harmony with VOLT’s commitment to delivering the best possible deal for customers, with their flexible insurance having no annual subscription or upfront payment costs and no excess super-fast claims which are usually processed within a day. Whether you’re gliding through the city on the LONDON, taking a ride through the countryside on the Kensington, or tackling a dirt track on the Alpine; VOLT and LAKA will ensure you’re protected with both theft and damage coverage.

Volt founder and owner, James Metcalfe commented:At VOLT we’re always looking to partner with organisations that are innovating within our sector. This partnership with LAKA is really exciting, they provide a great scheme which is disrupting the insurance industry. We know our riders will love their unique offer and we can’t wait to see them join ‘the collective’. We’re proud to have worked with LAKA to forge a great deal for all our riders.
