Insurance in China:
Insurance and liabilities on motorbike tours with a provisional Chinese driver‘s license: Our motorbikes are insured according to Chinese law. This law-insurance only provides financial insurance of damages to third parties up to an amount of approximately EUR 11.000,-. This insurance does not include financial compensations in the case of civil complains / law suits. The above mentioned amount of damage co- ver refers to the so called „primary damage“, e.g. costs for hospitalization (of the damaged person, not the motorbike rider) or costs of repair for third party vehicles, but not on civil complains in the case of negligence by the damage causing motorbike driver. Currently, there is no Chinese insurance company which provides a personal insurance of the motorbike rider or the motorbike itself. Not only for motor- biking, there are no personal insurances for other (motor)sports like cycling, parachuting and many more. Because of that, it is important, that the participants have to care about an accident insurance by themselves and also to take the proof of insurace with them at any time.
