Nationwide introduces helmet compulsion for cycle travel insurance

Nationwide has introduced a helmet compulsion clause to its travel insurance for FlexPlus customers – from 21st September account holders will have to wear helmets when cycling on holiday.

The new clause says: “Cycling, including on bridle paths and forest roads … Helmet must be worn.”

FlexPlus is a banking current account with added benefits, including travel insurance.

The FlexPlus travel insurance is underwritten by UK Insurance Ltd. which also underwrites travel insurance policies for NatWest, Lloyds and TSB – these policies do not contain the "Helmet must be worn" clause.
