Avanti was founded in 1996, and we’ve been operating on our core beliefs ever since, ensuring that every one of our customers has:

  • Peace of mind throughout their journey from quote to renewal
  • Exceptional customer service and assurance
  • Trustworthy, reliable travel insurance

Our tailored travel insurance policies are built around each individual’s circumstances with all pre-existing medical conditions considered. Our customers have the added security of being able to phone our 24-hour medical emergency helpline if needed.

There is no upper age limit on our policies. In fact, our average customer’s age is 69! We are delighted to hear about our customer’s exciting travel tales when they renew their Annual Multi-trip and Single Trip policies. Unlike some other insurance companies, there is no time limit to phone calls in our UK-based contact centre, so our fully trained agents are able to treat each customer in a caring and respectful manner.

If you are looking for quality, low-cost travel insurance and peace of mind when you travel, Avanti Insurance is here to help.

We aim to offer you the right travel insurance policy at the right price, whether this is online using our simple quote process, or over the phone with one of our friendly UK agents.

For flexibility and choice we offer a wide range of policies including Single Trip, Annual Multi-trip, Winter sports, Business and Cruise travel insurance. Our Family travel insurance packages and Group travel options ensure you get the best value policy for your money.

We strive to put the customer first. In fact, we have already helped over half a million customers find the right travel insurance policy at the right price.

When you call our offices in Braintree, Essex you will be treated with respect and sensitivity. We invest in training our staff to understand the requirements of our customers.
