Rugby vs. Football: Who wins with Life Insurance?


Rugby versus football – it’s the age old argument played out at pubs and clubs around the UK every weekend.


This week, however, rugby fans came out on top when it was announced that they are more likely to have life insurance than football fans.


In the battle of the sports, fans are often very dedicated to their chosen pastime, so no doubt rugby fans will be happy to say they are ahead of football in the insurance stakes. With 38% of rugby fans already holding a life insurance policy, football fans are trailing behind with only 22%.


The survey, commissioned by discount broker Best Price FS, allows consumers to compare financial services products online and purchase them directly from the provider, was designed to find out which fans were more likely to have insurance.


Richard Harry, Director of Best Price FS, said:


From the results of the survey, it is quite clear to see that rugby fans are seemingly more switched on when it comes to life insurance policies than football fans. There several reasons why people don’t take out life insurance such as, the cost, what cover they would need, and how they would go about claiming if needs be.”


Best Price FS provides online life insurance quotes, on a commission-free basis, charging only a small one-off start-up fee of just £20 for its service. Although other insurance providers charge a one-off fee, Best Price FS is the lowest on the market.

Notes for editors

Best Price Financial Services is a leading financial services supplier specialising in motor legal protection, life insurance, income protection, and premium investment products.

Best Price FS was launched in 2013 by South Wales-based independent financial advisor Richard Harry, following a substantial personal investment and a £200,000 grant from the Welsh Government.

The direct-to-consumer proposition offered by Best Price sits well with changes taking place in the financial services market partly caused by a raft of rule changes introduced through the UK government’s Retail Distribution Review (RDR) at the beginning of 2013.

One of the key aims of the RDR is to move providers of financial services away from commission-based models and towards transparent fee-based arrangements. Best Price FS aims to charge the lowest fees available in the market at all times.
