  • Why might I need it?

    Accidents, by their very nature, can happen at any time, any place and to anyone. This Accident Protection Plan is designed to meet the needs of those who wish to have some financial protection in place should they end up in hospital as the result of an accident or if the worst were to happen, to leave money behind for their loved ones if they were to die in an accident.

    The policy pays out £150,000 accidental death benefit if you, or anyone covered under the policy, dies as a result of accidental injury. The cash lump sum can be used for any reason – to pay bills, meet mortgage repayments, cover funeral costs and other expenses too.

    The policy has a £75 per day accidental hospitalisation cash benefit should you or anyone covered by the policy be admitted to hospital as an inpatient for more than 24 hours, following an accidental injury. This is payable for up to 180 days maximum benefit and will help compensate you for the additional expenses associated with a stay in hospital.

    For example:
    If you end up in hospital for 10 days following an accidental injury, the policy would pay you £750 cash benefit. This cash can be used to help tide you over a difficult period and you can spend the money on anything you like, help around the house while you recover or even a holiday to help you recuperate.
