Insurance for Timebanks
Time banks are simply organisations which facilitate an exchange of time which can be used to perform many different tasks or activities.
Because these can be so varied there are very few insurers who want to take the risk of covering such a varied range. A typical insurer likes to see a risk which they can understand – take for example, running a shop. The same types of activity is repeated day in and day out and insurers are able to see a pattern and understand the risk. When it comes to a time bank they are less able to define just what will take place as a pattern and tend to avoid the risk.
