Swiftcover Awarded Best Travel Insurer By Online Consumers

Swiftcover has been voted Best Travel Insurer by consumers at, the leading consumer review Website.

The award is based on averages of ratings and user comments submitted by customers to the Travel Insurance category in 2006, and also for the overall ratings and comments featured at Review Centre, the UK's largest online consumer review site.

The award was largely created due to the insurer's ability to deal with claims promptly, as well as their excellent customer service and competitive pricing.

Dave Fretter Swiftcover Operations Director: "It was a real pleasure to attend the awards presentation and to accept our award for best Travel Insurer. The fact that the recognition came as a result of feedback from our own customers made it all the more special since they are best placed to be able to comment on the quality of service that we at Swiftcover provide."

What's more, appears to have allayed many customers' fears about using a 100 per cent online insurer. Many customers found the service to be excellent value for money which made the company stand out amongst all the other Travel Services reviewed by Review Centre members.

Another typical view was that online savings made did not appear to limit the quality of service on offer.

"Sometimes you worry when something is cheap that it won't do the job. Not so with Swiftcover...these guys are great!" said one reviewer. was recommended in the vast majority of reviews submitted to Review Centre, 73 per cent in total. The insurer also received an overall 7.6 out of 10 value for money rating, based on all the reviews about the insurer.
