2. Alien Abduction Insurance
While the likelihood of encountering extraterrestrial beings remains a topic of debate, there are those who take the possibility seriously enough to seek insurance coverage for potential alien abductions. Originating as a tongue-in-cheek concept, alien abduction insurance has gained popularity among a niche audience.
Who buys this type of insurance and why? Well, enthusiasts who believe in the existence of aliens and the possibility of abduction are the primary customers for such policies. The coverage typically includes financial compensation for medical examinations, psychiatric treatment, and even “proof of abduction” requirements.
One notable insurer offering alien abduction insurance is the Saint Lawrence Agency in London. Their policyholders pay a small premium and receive a certificate that serves as proof of their coverage. While the chances of filing a claim for alien abduction are virtually non-existent, these policies serve as a source of entertainment and curiosity for those with an otherworldly fascination.
