Safe and easy insurance cover
Online booking is easy to follow, I especially like the fact you can declare a medical condition and choose not to be covered for it. I\'ve have made two claims which were fairly paid in full. The staff and correspondence were very good.John

Great customer service
We are 'senior' travellers and have been clients of many insurers during the past 30+ years. There was some wording which we didn't understand so I sent an email to the customer service address. There was an almost immediate reply explaining the wording... From my many years of customer relations I commend your staff for their empathy!Leslie
