How Income Protection cover works

Income protection will cover you if you are off work and unable to do your job due to accident and sicknesses. Frequently, many people, when asked think that their income is only protected inside work. However, anything that will render you unable to work due to an accident or illness, the insurance will pay out regardless of whether or not it is caused by your job.

Am I covered if I am in a cycle accident?

Insurers are happy to cover cycling and similar activities and hobbies. For example, if you are cycling to work, or cycling for a sports club then you will usually be covered. For example, take the scenario that you are riding a bike in the middle of a busy street and God forbid you were hit by a bus; the injuries sustained from that accident will be covered if it means you cannot do your job.

Competitive cycling

If you are cycling in a competitive capacity with many insurers, then it does not automatically mean you are not covered. It really depends on what you do. Where this is not usually covered is if you cycle as a paid professional or semi professional or it is very extreme, like entering BMX or downhill mountain biking competitions.

Josh did a great job. Did all the legwork for me in getting the best quote and even handed it over to someone else whilst he was away, then finished the whole thing once he was back – impressed!

Bronja Whitlock was absolutely brilliant, as my mind isn’t in the right place at the moment due to the loss of my partner and I forgot who my insurers were or if I was covered. I therefore contacted her from an old email that I had from a few years just explaining my situation. I wasn’t expecting a response to be honest, but Bronja replied back the same day. She didn’t just reply with the most empathising response, but she also contacted the insurance company and told them of my situation and ordered my claim pack on my behalf, which I can’t appreciate enough. Bronja Whitlock you are an asset to your company. Thank you.
