"I am thrilled with the deal I got from World First, they offer great service and peace of mind, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them." - Mrs Davis
Mrs Davis, 71, from Bedfordshire decided to contact World First having seen our advertisement in The Telegraph. She had tried a couple of other insurance companies and one had quoted her £3,000 for a single trip policy for a 12 day holiday to the USA, which she felt was ludicrous!
Mrs Davis has a back problem and is undergoing treatment for bowel cancer and needs adequate cover for both. That's what brought World First to her attention, as specialist travel insurers we offer comprehensive cover for thousands of medical conditions, for travellers aged up to 100 years.
Mrs Davis 'doesn't do computers' so she gave our Customer Service team a call. She was delighted that she did. The whole process was very easy and the documentation she was sent was clear, with all the details of her proposed cover summarised on the first page. Mrs Davis was given 14 days to consider the policy but she says, "I read through the policy very thoroughly and was absolutely content with the insurance cover it offered, so I quickly replied to confirm I would go ahead."
And perhaps the best news is the cost of the policy was just £295, a tenth of the cost Mrs Davis was previously quoted.
Mrs Davis says, "I am thrilled with the deal I got from World First, they offer great service and peace of mind, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. They really have enabled me to go ahead with my holiday to meet up with dear friends in America."
World First is delighted to add Mrs Davis to the thousands of customers we have helped who had struggled to get affordable medical travel cover and hopes she has a fantastic holiday.
