In 1997 the company was established by Philip Bacon who by then had already spent 20 years working in the travel insurance industry, with similarly specialist companies including the main specialist of the day, J Perry & Co (Holiday Insurances) Ltd and Perry Gamble, working with underwriters including Norwich Union, Commercial Union, Cornhill, Axa and other major travel insurance underwriters.
We remain a small specialist independent and family run insurance broking company which allows us to provide a personal service to all customers including those travel firms for whom we provide travel insurance contracts.
We specialise in providing travel insurance products for the older traveller and have developed our own style of policy wording with all insurers with whom we place business, making our products unique in the market. These unique features can be seen in our range of products available to you.
We also provide insurance services for the travel industry including Brochure Travel Insurance schemes for a wide range of Tour Operators including many niche market schemes, Combined Liability Insurance, Office Insurance, Staff Travel Insurance, Business Travel Insurance, Crisis Management Insurance, Travel Industry Bonding, and much more.
In 2005 we became authorised and regulated by the then FSA, now called the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Prior to this we were voluntarily regulated by the General Insurance Standards Council (GISC). We are also members of the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA).
