Alzheimer's is not an obstacle with World First

12 September 2011 14:09

Mr and Mrs Holt of Littleborough, Greater Manchester have worked hard all their lives and now want to enjoy their retirement fully and take regular well-earned holidays.

They had been with their previous insurer for many years who covered pre-existing medical conditions they both have, but when Mrs Holt was re-booking and mentioned her husband had been diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer's they were unable to insure them. Mrs Holt contacted several other insurance companies and got a similar response.

A friend, who knew she was finding it difficult to get appropriate travel insurance, gave her a newspaper article that recommended World First Travel Insurance for people with health concerns. Mrs Holt rang us straight away and went through her and her husband's details fully with a very polite and professional adviser. She was delighted when World First could cover them fully for two holiday cruises they had booked.

Mrs Holt says, "I was absolutely delighted to get everything sorted in just one telephone call. So many companies just didn't want to know us as soon as I mentioned Alzheimers. Because my husband's health can fluctuate we have been advised to take out single trip policies, but that still means we can make the most of our retirement while we can."

Mr and Mrs Holt are eagerly anticipating a Mediterranean cruise later this month and welcoming in 2012 with a cruise to the Canary Islands.
