Quote Start 2Columbus Direct is fantastic. No other travel insurance company could quote as low as you for our trip taking my medical condition into account!! The online medical screening was so much better for me than calling up and going through it on the phone, as i could carry it out in my own time.

I took insurance out last year and then had to have an operation, I rang Columbus and told them what had happened and they said fine and I just had to pay an increase in premium. I shopped around this year again for my travel insurance, but they are still unbeatable for over 75 cover with medical conditions, so well done!Quote End

A Lancaster - 17-Jan

Quote Start 2Brilliant insurance for those with pre-existing conditions on the whole. It's much more realistic than other firms who's quotes can be astronomical. A more reasonable yearly plan for customers with pre-existing conditions would be good. I've been away 4 times this year and have bought with you every time but I have had to get single trip insurance as it was more reasonable. This is a bit of an inconvenience though.Quote End
