Many of the insurers are now providing incentives to help their members live a healthier lifestyle, often you can build up points for going to the gym, eating healthier or having a health screening.

Points win prizes at the end of the day whether it be in cashback, discounts or other perks. Promoting healthier living is at the forefront of many of the insurers strategy so if they have a wellbeing scheme they should make you aware of it when considering their plan. Do always make the insurer or your adviser aware of your lifestyle, it can only help your cause if you are a gym addict.

Ceiron King did an amazing job setting up my insurance. He was meticulous to all details and made sure everything was individually tailor made to suit my circumstances. When I had queries he was able to take on board any issues and find solutions quickly. Pleasant, easy to talk to, engaging, personable chap who effortlessly made me feel that I'd found the right firm. Highly recommended.
