For customers who would prefer to discuss their needs or would like
- As we are thorough in our assessments and search
various markets, then this process may involve a
relatively long call and a delay in confirming the best
premium and terms. Against that, we know the information
required and will not only discuss your needs but ensure
that the policy we recommend will either meet them or,
if this is not possible, the reasons for the inability
and any shortfall in cover provided.
- Please ensure that full details of all
of all travellers, including medication and any time in
hospital is known. We do not recommend customers buy
travel insurance for solely the one person with medical
conditions through us and travel insurance for the
remainder of the party elsewhere, for the simple reason
that it is a truism that one of the conditions included
in most travel insurance policies is that full details
of any traveller whose change of condition may
necessitate cancellation or curtailment of the trip must
be disclosed. This condition is not often highlighted in
the quotation process and many travellers have found the
policy excludes their repatriation dependent on the
health of the elderly person travelling with them.
