At Avanti Travel Insurance 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. This hasn’t gone unnoticed, as we have won several Travel Insurance Awards for customer service.

Avanti’s award-winning customer service.

Avanti Travel Insurance provides specialist travel insurance cover for older travellers with medical conditions. As a specialist provider in travel insurance for over 65s, over 80s and over 85s, the company aims to be recognised as being trustworthy and one that understands that all customers have the need to be comprehensively covered for their age and medical conditions. Avanti Travel Insurance believes in inclusivity, fairness and accessibility so there is no upper age limits on any of our policies. In fact, the average age of our customers is 69, so it is a given that excellent customer service must be at the heart of the business.

A genuinely satisfied customer will either recommend Avanti Travel Insurance to others or purchase the same product again, or both. A quarter of all business conducted at Avanti Travel Insurance is through recommendation and renewal, so the company is fully aware that the customer satisfaction strategy currently in place really does work. Treating customers fairly is paramount to this, and everything we do is focused on our customers. We train our staff to:


  • Treat customers with the dignity and the respect they deserve
  • Be polite and kind at all times, treating confidential information with utmost consideration
  • Refrain from using insurance jargon or slang and explain fully anything that the customer does not understand
  • Taking their time with each and every call: meeting all insurance needs is more important than the duration of the call
  • Making the sales journey straightforward, comfortable and transparent for the customer, keeping in mind their demographic
