“I have just taken out travel insurance with All Clear after being refused insurance by several other companies. Bradley, who dealt with my quote, was very helpful and found the appropriate cover for me. I managed to get a years worldwide cover including the USA and cruise cover for the same price as I was quoted for a single ten-day trip” – Julie.
