Chris McFarlane, Head of Protection at LV= comments: "At a time when protection is more important than ever, we are committed to providing simple, flexible and affordable solutions to customers. We know that consumer perception of price is a major barrier to taking out protection, but actually cover can be much more affordable than consumers think, and even £10 per month can go a long way towards providing a reasonable level of protection."

Customers choosing LV= to provide their protection cover also get online health assessment and advice service Healthy Steps.
