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.
