A new insurance provider has been launched today to target the personal insurance marketplace. Novastris Insurance is the brainchild of Steve Nickerson and David Marshall who together founded Preferential travel insurance before selling the company three years ago.

Accidents happen but with Novastris personal accident insurance workers can be reassured that their financial security will be protected when they can’t work for as little as seven pence per day.

Novastris Insurance is delighted to announce today the launch of - a new specialist provider offering a range of innovative personal accident insurance products to the United Kingdom.

Tackling an under-served sector of the personal insurance marketplace, Novastris Insurance was created by Preferential travel insurance founders Steve Nickerson and David Marshall, who sold the company to The Collinson Group in 2009.

Novastris Insurance’s aim is to deliver insurance solutions that protect people from the financial consequences of being unable to work due to an accident. Cover includes accidental death insurance, varying levels of accidental disablement insurance as well as bereavement, home alteration and funeral expenses benefit.

Novastris Insurance also offers tailored personal accident insurance for employed, self-employed and freelance professionals which includes the provision of those working in higher risk trades and professions such as builders and tradesman insurance, freelancers insurance and hair and beauty insurance. All of Novastris Insurance’s products can be purchased quickly and easy at

Novastris Insurance director Steve Nickerson said: “Our research revealed that many employed and self-employed professional people found it difficult to access an insurance policy online that would give them immediate protection.

“This is particularly the case for those in higher risk trades and professions. And if they do find a service that they think is suitable many professions are excluded or need to be ‘referred’ making it harder for them to purchase. The reality is, with busy lives, if something’s not easy to buy it gets forgotten or left until later – which might be too late!

“We are addressing this problem by giving employed and self-employed workers access to a personal accident insurance policy that they can buy online and which automatically includes higher risk sectors. This means they have financial protection should they be unable to work for a period of time, plus it provides a monetary benefit for their family should the worst happen.

“Accidents happen but with Novastris personal accident insurance workers can be reassured that their financial security will be protected when they can’t work for as little as seven pence per day.”

Novastris Insurance plans to introduce a number of other vital protection products over the coming months. It is also planning to develop white label affinity solutions for the broker market.

Novastris Insurance director David Marshall said: “Steve and I have the breadth and depth of experience financially, technically and operationally in the field of insurance.

“Capitalising on more than 50 years’ collective experience and proven track record in the development, implementation and management of insurance schemes for banks, hotel groups, airlines and building societies, we are creating a range of solutions that we believe fill a gap in the market.

“We aim to provide innovative and well-priced solutions that give individuals and families vital financial protection and peace of mind.”
