Already roundly condemned and being actively campaigned against here
Yes, a number of Nationwide members are working to get this evidence-free policy change reversed. It seems like another example of a helmet zealot somewhere in the decision-making process abusing their power to force their misguided personal beliefs on others.
They are entitled to make their own T & Cs and the policy is free, there are plenty of other policies on offer so not much to get excited about here.
The account is £10 a month, so not free.
It is much more likely to have been an unthinking "stands to reason" decision.
Mutual society, owned by its members, so yes and no.
I'm not sure because I feel they would have backed down long before now if that was the case. I think someone in Swindon is a helmet-pusher.
I wonder how obvious it was made within the policy? is it just a few words hidden deep down in pages of confusing small print, or was it obvious. Whenever I have studied policy wording for any insurance I have come to the conclusion that I'm not really covered for anything and any pay out on their behalf would be mostly down as a goodwill gesture. Insurance companies just seem to be a law to themselves.
Last holiday I went on I wasn't covered for any claim that was the result of alcohol - now that was a bit of wording that could probably see them welch on most claims.
They also won't cover you if you're not wearing a condom, a nappy, and a full suit of armour.
And next month the hi-viz clause gets added?
No, next month you'll have to carry a white flag whenever walking and an approved parachute on all international flights.
From next year they'll only cover bicycles with four wheels, seatbelt, roof and an engine.
Well this is a somewhat surprising reply. They seem to think they are a lighthouse:
Passed on your comments... To the cleaner to throw in the incinerator.
