The name Piaggio is synonymous with scooters thanks in no small way to Enrico Piaggio. He saw an opportunity and seized it by producing a low-cost, two-wheeled motorised mode of transport. This was designed to help get Italy back to work after WW2. He recruited engineer Corradino D’Ascanio, who was more at home designing aeroplanes. They produced together the first mass-market scooter, the Vespa, in 1946. The scooter so unique was the front wheel that looked more like the nose wheel on an aeroplane. Also the leg shields were unusual and that protected riders from rain and dirt. These two features are still easily identifiable on scooters under this brand today.

Your Piaggio insurance options
When you apply online for an insurance quote, you’ll be asked to select from one of three types of policy. The policies range in price and also in what is and isn’t covered under the terms and conditions. It’s always better to base your decision on what you consider is important to insure rather than simply choosing the cheapest type of cover. Here are the three types of policy and a brief description of what they do.
- Third party insurance. UK law requires you to have at least third party insurance before you can legally ride your Piaggio on the road. This is basic cover which will cover you for any damages you cause to a third party as well as their vehicle and property in the event of an accident. It doesn’t cover you for any losses, damages to your scooter or personal injury, however, so you’ll have to pay for any repairs or replacement costs from your own pocket.
- Third party fire and theft. Similar to the policy above but you’ll also be insured against your Piaggio being stolen or if it is damaged in a fire. This policy will cost more but the extra expense may be worth it, depending on where your scooter is parked and whether it’s regularly left unattended.
- Comprehensive Piaggio insurance. Typically the most expensive type of insurance policy but the one that will cover you for just about every eventuality, including damages to your scooter and your own personal injuries if you have a crash. Some policies may also provide you with a replacement scooter while yours is off the road being repaired.
