KBIS and British Eventing has launched a new bespoke personal accident policy designed specifically for BE members.
Intended to enhance the existing personal accident cover received by full BE members as part of their membership benefits, the KBIS policy will provide an uplift in catastrophe payouts and offer valuable new cover benefits. One such new cover benefit is temporary total disability, which provides a weekly pay out should you suffer an injury which leaves you temporarily unable to carry out your normal occupation or business.
In addition the policy provides cover for loss of equipment, should any clothing or protective equipment get damaged whilst being removed following an accident, such as your riding boots having to be cut off. Increased travel expenses, if you sustain an injury whilst competing abroad and incur additional costs to get home and up to £2,500 towards dental treatment.
Designed for both amateur and professional riders there are three different levels of cover to choose from, plus a specific level for junior riders 16 years and under.
Dan Parry, KBIS Operations Director, commented: “Temporary total disability is the most claimed upon benefit on a personal accident policy and is essential cover to have in place. The weekly benefit will help towards your daily living costs and, for anyone who is self-employed, the running costs of your business, whilst you are unable to work. We are delighted to be able to offer this new policy to BE’s members, and believe it will offer an affordable yet comprehensive personal accident insurance option across all levels of riders.”
Wendy McGowan, BE’s Chief Operating Office, added: “Whilst British Eventing continues to create innovations in technology to help reduce the risk in the sport, accidents can still happen so it is essential to ensure that as a rider you have appropriate cover in place.”
There will be a special introductory offer of £10 off all policies throughout October, with purchase available from the first week of October via the BE members area.
