Feedback from customers we've helped
" I feel I must let you know about the exceptional care and support that Anna has shown to me during a most traumatic and distressing time involving the repatriation of my mother who passed away while we were on board a flight to Australia.
I do not know how I would have coped without hearing Anna's kind words of comfort and practical support. She has gone out of her way to assist me and she has made me feel that I am her number one priority when I know that in reality I am one of a number of people that she helps on a daily basis. She is even chasing-up a request to locate my lost luggage which speaks volumes for her commitment to help her clients."
" Unfortunately my father passed away on holiday on Christmas day in Tenerife. As you can imagine at this very difficult time, your company was astounding with the service, help and advice given.
I made one phone call and from that point the repatriation service went smoothly and efficiently. Your company rang me back at the appointed time, every time, and made everything very easy for mum and myself.
It just goes to show that taking out good travel insurance is a must particularly in these circumstances.
Well done and once again THANK YOU"
