USA and Canada can be added to a multi-trip policy for as little as £10
Naomi Smith from Cornwall considers herself a pretty shrewd shopper, getting the family income to go that little bit further by researching key purchases. The family of four, Mum, Dad and two boys had previously purchased travel insurance linked to her husband's job as a civil servant. Naomi then came across World First Travel Insurance through her new job.
Their travel insurance was due for renewal just ahead of her husband, Mark, travelling to Madrid for work. Naomi gave World First a call to see if they could offer a competitive annual policy. Naomi says, "We went through our requirements, we need a multi-trip, worldwide policy excluding America, Canada and the Caribbean but including winter sports as we are hoping to take our boys Ted (8 years old) and William (6 years old) skiing in Europe next year. World First came up trumps with a policy that was at least 40% less than we had been quoted by our existing insurer."
As Mark was due to travel to Madrid that week World First emailed all the policy documents immediately for them to check and confirm and the Smith's travel insurance was sorted for 12 months in less than an hour.
Naomi adds "It's a long way for the boys to travel, but we adore Banff for skiing and the lovely countryside and amenities. If we end up there we can just phone up to add the States and Canada to our policy for less than £10!"
