Voom Is Changing How Motorcycle Insurance Works

Oct 20, 2021


When it comes to owning a motorcycle, insurance is one of those necessary evils that we all have to deal with at some point. For most owners, traditional insurance makes little sense. You see, most owners only ride their bikes an average of 3,000 miles per year, and that's only for a few months out of the year. But your insurance doesn't change for those months you're not riding it.

Enter Voom. Voom is pay per mile motorcycle insurance. So if you only ride 100 miles one month, you only pay for 100 miles worth of coverage. Makes sense, right? Better yet, there is no tracking device or mobile app required. You just take a picture of your odometer at the end of every month and send it in to Voom.

Like traditional insurance, Voom does offer tiers of coverage, from Essential to Extended. But unlike traditional insurance, you'll pay a flat fee monthly unless you are riding your bike. And because the Voom team aren't jerks, if you ride your bike a lot, they won't endlessly charge you for miles. Once you reach the yearly cap, you're done paying for the miles that you ride.

Now let's make things even better. For Riders Share owners, Voom provides a milage credit when you have rented out your bike. All you have to do is make sure to send an accurate milage report back to Riders Share. So if you own a single bike or a fleet of 30, you'll never pay for the miles that a renter puts on your ride. For those of you who live in colder climates, that also means that you'll pay a bare minimum during the winter months when your bike isn't being ridden.

While the company is only available in Arizona, Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana right now, it is expanding nationwide in 2022. We're looking forward to more great innovation from the company as they grow.

Check out Voom, and tell 'em Riders Share sent you.
