Seville 2005

Award winners 2005 – Seville

Insurer/Underwriter of the year

Churchill Insurance

Unlike many competitors, we still aim to provide cover for people of all ages who want to travel and have annual and single policies available for people over 65. As well as the usual option to add winter sports cover, customers can now buy tailored cover if they are playing golf or getting married abroad which follows the popular holiday trends.
As travel insurance policy wordings in general get more complicated, we’re working to ensure our customers understand what they’re covered for, so our policy wording has been awarded the Crystal Mark by the Plain English Campaign.
