“I looked at many sites and should have come straight to AllClear. We used them before for our Egypt trip. I had the best deal and fantastic service when y mother was taken ill. I decided to take years cover and go away again after the cruise. Best value for money, easy to complete forms, straightforward questioning, no catches. BRILLIANT.

Allowed trip lengths vary between policies. However, the maximum you can get for a single trip quote online is for up to 92 days.

Is it best to buy a single or an annual multi-trip policy for Egypt?
