Coronavirus: United Kingdom, facing worst recession on record, sees GDP drop 20.4% in Q2

The UK has seen its economy, hit by the coronavirus crisis, suffer a "record" contraction of 20.4% in the second quarter, and is officially facing its worst recession on record, agency figures show National Statistics (ONS), published Wednesday 12 August. 
Economists consider that a country enters a technical recession when it accumulates two consecutive quarters of contraction in its economy. According to the ONS, most of the contraction, which began to be felt in March, occurred in April, an entire month of containment and almost total cessation of activity in the country, which saw production collapsed by 20%.

With a very early recovery in construction sites and manufacturing activity, gross domestic product (GDP) rebounded in May by 2.4% (revised figure), followed by an acceleration in June (+8.7 %) thanks in particular to the reopening of all shops.

Luko offers scooter insurance from 3.30 euros per month

More and more people are turning to electric scooters and new individual electric vehicles (NVEI), which are faster and more flexible than public transport or the car. But these new neo-travelers are still more or less in a legislative vagueness, despite a recent law. Fast since they can go up to 25km / h, they are not considered as pedestrians or cars, they are only allowed on the sidewalk, but only on the roadway.

And unfortunately accidents are increasing. These NVEI accidents can be serious and because their speed exceeds 4 km / h, they are not covered by civil liability and current insurance policies provide only partial responses to very real situations.

To make up for this lack, Luko offers scooter insurance, which offers a simple way to protect yourself, while protecting other users of the city.

Simple, fast, 100% online and collaborative, Luko scooter insurance is meant to be the paragon of modern insurance. From 3.30 euros per month, the toddler can thus benefit from a cover adapted to this new mode of transport: bodily injury, property damage in the event of collisions, theft… but also better protect others thanks to civil liability. (covering damage to a third party or material) and legal assistance (in the event of a lawsuit).

  • For 3.30 euros per month, you thus have the minimum legal guarantees with civil liability, to protect others in the event of an accident.
  • For 9.74 euros per month, you still have civil liability, as well as guarantees on collision damage, theft, natural disasters, or even in the event of an accident.

It is possible to take out this insurance directly on the internet in two minutes, and cancel it just as easily.
