There’s New Way to Insure Your Bike in Texas!

January 31, 2023

VOOM Insurance, the only pay-per-mile motorcycle insurance provider, is expanding its innovative offering to motorcyclists in three additional states: Texas, Tennessee, and Missouri.

Motorcycle owners in these states who ride less than 2,000 miles a year, per bike, such as weekend warriors, occasional riders, and multiple motorcycle owners, can save up to 60% compared to traditional motorcycle insurance plans, starting as low as $50 per year. In an age of inflation, VOOM aims to help riders keep more money in their pockets.

“Our team is excited to be able to introduce our product to the Lone Star state, one of the most populated motorcycle markets in the country. As we currently operate in 10 states, this new expansion allows us to expand our reach among riders and cover almost 30% of the US motorcyclist population. Tomer Kashi, VOOM CO-Founder & CEO, said, “We are working diligently to take VOOM nationwide to allow riders to save more, without compromising on their coverage level.” 

“We surveyed hundreds of riders and found that 70% ride 2,000 miles a year or less. The results of this study are correlated to the findings of the recent behavioral safety research done by the NHSA. These riders are actually overpaying to cover the risks of a few lucky riders who ride more often”. Said Ori Blumental, VOOM CO-founder & CTO. 

VOOM offers a non-intrusive alternative to the status quo – riders report their mileage by sending in a picture of their odometer, with no tracking or hardware required. The bike is covered, even when someone doesn’t ride any miles for a particular month. The service is currently available in 10 states in the United States. Motorcycle insurance policies are underwritten by Markel Corporation
