"We are so grateful to have won not one, but two Moneyfacts awards this year and would like to thank everybody who continues to trust us with their travel insurance. Being commended as Best Claims Service means so much as 2019 was a big year for us. We launched our new branding and advertising campaign, designed to better reflect our continued commitment and reassurance to our customers. Knowing that our customers and independent experts recognise our effort through this award is truly humbling."
“Avanti Travel Insurance was welcomed into the Howserv family of travel insurance companies in 2017. Since then, the business has gone from strength-to-strength at our new home in the Midlands.
We believe in travel insurance that gives you a little bit extra. When people choose us for their travel insurance, it’s not about buying ‘any old policy’. It’s about travel reassurance. Because if something does go wrong - they know we’ll always aim to put it right.
We also understand how important it is to have travel insurance you can trust. That’s why we’re proud of how quickly our team work to settle claims in a caring and understanding way.
At the 2020 Moneyfacts Awards Avanti Travel Insurance were Commended for Best Claims Service, which is one that’s close to our hearts. People never think that the worst is going to happen to them, or that they’ll need to make a claim. So, knowing that the new processes we’ve introduced have made claiming as easy as possible for our customers is great news!
How we helped David in a medical emergency
David Jukes from the Wirral never expected things to go wrong, but unfortunately just a few days into his holiday in Tenerife he needed a helping hand.
Instead of soaking up the sun and enjoying his holiday, David was hospitalised for 11 days.
As well as covering the cost for his hospital stay and medical fees, we also took care of his wife by paying for emergency accommodation and transport, so she was able to visit David in hospital without worry.
Once David was fit to travel, we arranged new flights and for a specialist nurse to fly home with him. We needed to make sure he got home safe.
Back in good health, David renewed his Avanti Travel Insurance policy for a third year, reassured by the service he received in his moment of plight. And he doesn’t hesitate to recommend us to other travelers, as shown by his five-star review on Trustpilot. He says: “Once you’re in with a good company, you stay put.”
With our help, you can leave the worry at home, just like David did. Putting it simply, you can count on us to make sure there is always someone on the end of the phone when you have a medical emergency. Whenever you need us, even in the middle of the night, we’ll be there.
We’ll be with you all the way
Other insurers are sometimes hesitant in covering certain pre-existing medical conditions or impose age restrictions. But we think that celebrating another birthday shouldn’t stop you from travelling.
Avanti Travel Insurance’s Mature Travel Trends report found a 35 per cent rise in over 65s travelling in the past 20 years. Despite the increased risks associated with travelling at an older age, Avanti discovered that 40 per cent of these people wouldn’t take out a travel insurance policy before going on a short break, such as France. David says: “You hope you never have to use it, but by golly it’s a good job you have it when you need it. It’s bad enough when you’re ill at home, but it’s terrible when you’re abroad.”
