A Sunderland travel insurance broker has been named Britain’s best.

Just Travel Cover scooped the Best Travel Insurance Provider award at last week’s Insurance Choice awards in London.

It’s a real honour to win this award. It is testament to the hard work of our wonderful staff who deal with customers every day, often with complex medical conditions and travel requirements.

More than 27,000 votes were cast in the UK’s largest consumer-voted awards in the insurance industry and winners were announced in a lavish ceremony at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair.

The company, who specialise in finding cover for those over 50 and with pre-existing medical conditions were in a tough category, ultimately beating six national firms to the title of Best Travel Insurance Provider.

Dale Robinson, marketing manager at Just Travel Cover, said: “It’s a real honour to win this award.

“It is testament to the hard work of our wonderful staff who deal with customers every day, often with complex medical conditions and travel requirements.

“We put customer service at the heart of everything we do in our call centre, online and for those who visit our offices and we’re delighted to be recognised for it.”

The Insurance Choice Awards are run by Smart Money People, the UK’s largest consumer review platform focused on financial services.

Mike Fotis, the founder of Smart Money People, said: “The Insurance Choice Awards aim to find and celebrate the most customer-centric firms in an industry which can still feel like a bit of a minefield for many consumers.

“I’d like to congratulate Just Travel Cover for taking home the ‘Best Travel Insurance Provider’ award and look forward to seeing the firm grow further over the next 12 months.”
