I have recently retired and we are not letting the dust settle! My wife and I are soon off to Kenya and have other trips to Cyprus and Turkey booked.
Mr Hiscock, 64, from Surrey, had been with his previous travel insurer for nearly 15 years, taking an annual policy with them to cover both his work and holiday trips. During that time he had made just a couple of claims, one for disrupted travel plans as a result of a volcanic ash cloud and the other for extended delays he once experienced.
He was somewhat perturbed by the increase in his premium within a couple of years from around £95 to £300, which was due to getting older and a couple minor medical problems he had developed. Mr Hiscock occasionally has to use an inhaler and because of this, his insurer deemed he had asthma. Even when Mr Hiscock provided the company with a letter from his medical consultant clearly stating he does not have asthma they would not budge.
Having read favourable reports about World First Travel Insurance in The Telegraph and, from these understanding, as travel insurance specialists that we offer policies for seniors and pre-existing medical conditions, he made contact.
He spoke to an adviser to get a quote for an annual policy worldwide policy for him and his wife. He then checked this out on our website, got some comparative quotes from other companies, and researched World First a bit more, reading reviews and gathering other independent opinions.
Satisfied that World First Travel Insurance offered all they needed, Mr Hiscock insured himself and his wife with an annual worldwide policy, with cover for pre-existing medical conditions that both have, for just £106.
"I have recently retired and we are not letting the dust settle! My wife and I are soon off to Kenya and have other trips to Cyprus and Turkey booked. We are certainly going to get maximum value for money from our travel insurance. I feel with World First we've got really comprehensive cover backed up by excellent customer service. I'm thoroughly impressed by all my dealings with them and would not hesitate to recommend them."
