Vitalicio Seguros (UCI Team Code: VIT) was a Spanish professional road bicycle racing cycling team active between 1998 and 2000. It helped launch the careers of triple world champion Óscar Freire, 2000 Vuelta a España winner Ángel Casero and Tour de France yellow jersey wearer Igor González de Galdeano.

The team was started by manager in 1998 with funding from Assicurazioni Generali, who wished to promote their Catalan brand and made a three year commitment.
