“I have travelled abroad, especially to Canada for several years and although in my seventies, never been in hospital or seen a doctor for over forty years. However, my last trip in 2019 resulted in an emergency admission. The treatment was exceptional in Canada but very expensive. Thankfully I had AllClear insurance, and their response was immediate, and I received the immediate treatment required.” – Smith.
