...and still waiting from some one to respond to claim submitted. They don't even send an email to say it is being looked at, nothing, using COVID 19 as excuse which I do appreciate has caused major issues. However they are soon to take your money when taking a policy out then leave you stranded when you need help. Would have given a zero star given the option except I cant'!

Please be aware that most of these 5* reviews are only given on taking policies out and how easy it is. The real truth comes to when you try to claim on your policy. Firstly you won't be able to get through on the phone line, you then message on their site and they don't respond. You then email and weeks and weeks later you get an email to say it is being looked at. 10 weeks later, still waiting, it is very clear they are trying not to pay out when a claim is made. I will be referring this company to the Ombudsman. They are very quick to take your money and that's about all they offer....BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Lynne in your Glasgow office. Superb service without pressure to purchase. She guided us through our options which would ensure that our policy would meet our requirements. My husband needed cover for two pre existing conditions. We now feel that we are able to travel with appropriate cover at a price that was very competitive. Thank you Lynne for superb service. A anti are very fortunate to have you as part of their team. Happy New Year.

....that could leave you with no cover for any of your declared medical conditions.

Prior to the medical assessment section is the sentence: “If you .... are awaiting surgery, or are awaiting to be discharged from post-operative checks then please call our specialist team free on 0808 281 3840 to discuss your quote.”

What they don’t tell you is that if, during the period of your insurance, you develop a condition which needs surgery, Avanti would, most probably, remove cover, not just for that condition, but for all declared conditions, leaving you with the option of travelling without cover or cancelling your holiday!

My husband is waiting for a very simple, non-urgent procedure akin to freezing and scraping off a mole. I ticked that he was awaiting “surgery”, no warning flashed up that they would not provide cover. I was then provided with a quote and invited to “buy now.” No warning anywhere, so it was reasonable to assume that he would be covered.

Fortunately I had a few questions about so telephoned. In the ensuing conversation about another issue, the agent just happened to mention that anyone on a waiting list would not be covered for any of their declared medical conditions!

Other companies make clear if they will not provide cover for anyone on a waiting list. The rep. told me there are some ops that are exceptions, but he wouldn’t give me examples, and if something as simple as the mole removal procedure doesn’t pass muster, then I can’t imagine what would.

I shudder to think that I could so easily have clicked to buy, and only found out he was not covered for any condition if/when we were away and needed medical assistance! So right up the creek without a paddle!

Appalling attitude lacking total honesty.

Quick and simple to arrange

Standard form to fill in. Immediately gave me very competitive quotes for 3 levels of cover. A phone call to ask further questions was answered quickly and gave me the information needed.

Excellent value for money

I have purchased from Avanti for the last three years and found them to be not only competitive but fantastic value for money. I will be buying from them again in 2018!

easy way for insureance

very easy rep very knowledgeable about what was required and when I have had to get back to Avanti as I'd given the wrong email they were very helpful to put the correct one in place

Good clear site.

Site is very clear and easy to navigate. Cost of policy is reasonable. As with all such products, you only get to know how good they are if you are unfortunate enough to make a claim. I hope I don’t find out!

Avanti makes the process for over 70s easy to complete.

soon to be turning 70 I was concerned that I would have to jump through a few hoops (not easy at my age) to get adequate cover for holidays but the Avanti website was user friendly and I finished up with a competitive quote.
