Couple claim on two holidays but save thousands of pounds with AllClear; Barry Everett and his wife Margaret understand the importance of comprehensive medical travel insurance only too well, after making two claims - - first in Menorca and again in Greece.

The couple, in their late sixties, had been visiting Cala Blanca for 20 years. But following his double cardiac arrest, Barry could no longer get travel insurance from their bank. Barry began looking at providers that would cover his medical history. He chose AllClear, a specialist medical travel insurance provider, after a recommendation from his cardiac consultant.

"On the way back to the airport in Menorca I started to feel distinctly unwell," says Barry. "I was in no fit state to fly." Barry had experienced a heart flutter and needed extensive tests. The couple missed their flight: "The support my wife received by the call centre was fantastic. English speaking people who understood our position and knew what advice and support was needed," Barry explains. "We would have effectively been stranded had we not been insured."

His second claim came some years later, on holiday in Kos: "The emergency assistance team organised an air ambulance that flew me to Athens where care was a better standard. During all this time my wife was also put up in a hotel. It was an extremely stressful time for both of us, but I have nothing but praise for AllClear - I recommend them to everyone."

"If we had to pay the bill in Greece we would be tens of thousands of pounds out of pocket," he says. "From my eight years' experience with AllClear, I believe it to be the most ethical, cost effective, and caring provider out there."
