Here’s what our customers have to say about their AllClear experience:

Excellent Company

“We have been insured with All Clear for several years. Travel Insurance is something we don’t often think about when we go on holiday, but it is essential as we found out. We have had to claim on this insurance after two separate serious leg injuries in Austria and Germany. AllClear was very professional and helped us through this difficult time. They were in touch with the hospital directly, organising treatment, discharge and flights home, plus a taxi to the door. They arranged everything perfectly and kept me informed all the time…” – Mr Greene.
