Mrs Allison was thoroughly impressed also with her dealings with Mayday Assistance, World First's providers of 24 hour emergency assistance
Mr and Mrs Allison from Liverpool were on the last day of their holiday in the Costa del Sol when Mr Allison was taken seriously ill and collapsed as a result of food poisoning. Mrs Allison called for a doctor to come to their apartment and immediately got in touch with us to inform us of her husband's condition.
Mr Allison says, "World First were extremely caring and professional, they couldn't have made things easier for us. The doctor who called checked our policy and got me admitted to a private hospital. I was there for four days on antibiotic drips."
Mrs Allison was thoroughly impressed also with her dealings with Mayday Assistance, World First's providers of 24 hour emergency assistance. Mayday Assistance made all the arrangements to get the Allisons home comfortably and safely as, of course, they missed their transfer to the airport and original flight home.
The Allisons agree, "We have chosen World First for our travel insurance for the past two years as they are very competitive and provide great service. When we are due to renew this year they will be our first port of call. Based on our experience, we would recommend them without hesitation."
