" Just made my first claim and have been amazed at the support and service received. Want to call out Matt the bike guru who supported my claim, he resolved a stressful situation. Insurance isn't just about the fee you pay, it's the about the service you receive."
"Highly recommend - has been a very competitive monthly cost, and excellent service when I needed to claim. Laka sent out mechanics to collect and check my bike and I was able to get my custom-fit race bike replaced within a week!"
"Basically the hype is real, which in today's world of cost cutting, pretend-optimised, overly complicated engagements with customer service is great. It just works, in exactly the same way many other companies don't when dealing with them."
"I don’t really do recommendations but I have to praise Laka. I recently had an accident on my bike and contacted Laka. This was genuinely the most painless experience ever. If your bike is your pride and joy you must use Laka."
