Ten weird and wonderful insurance policies
By Kirsten Hastings, 11 Nov 16
People often lump insurance into three categories: car, home, and life. While few would think of the world of insurance as an exciting place, Aegon has put together a list of 10 weird and wonderful insurance policies to brighten, what has been for some, a dreary week.
When supermodel Heidi Klum decided to insure her world-famous, never-ending legs, she flew to London to be “inspected” by underwriters.
The strangest part? Her legs were valued at £1.5m ($1.9m, €1.7m) as a pair, although individually, one leg is worth £130,000 less than the other.
The less expensive leg has a tiny, tiny scar on it.
While not a paltry sum, Klum may be slightly disheartened to find out that Mariah Carey’s legs were insured by Gillette for an enormous sum of $1bn.
Lord of the Dance
Now, Aegon loves a dance as much as the next financial services company, but insuring feet?
The Lord of the Dance himself, Michael Flatley, apparently had his feet insured for £25m.
