Good Value, Excellent Cover

AdvantagesVery Competitive, on-line quotes easy to obtain

Disadvantagesnone

"...insurance to the USA through Norwich Union, the service was fast, efficient and cheap. The web-site provides an online quote, which came to £28, and is very easy to use. Answer a few questions and hey presto job done. You can call for a quote if you prefer. The price NU quoted was far cheaper than other providers. I asked for quotes from several, including Tesco (£43) and Natwest (£41), and found that most of them are simply resellers of insurance ..." Read review

Did you know you are probably with CGNU anyway

AdvantagesDealing with the largest insurer, Good customer service.

DisadvantagesPrices may be based as much on loyalty to your bank as they are on insurance risk.

"If you call: HSBC, First Direct, Abbey National, National Trust ATL and most unions, along with many other groups, you will end up speaking to the same operator? These banks and other organisations act as brokers selling insurance on behalf of CGNU. You probably wouldn't be too shocked to discover that. What might surprise you is the fact that you will be directed through to the same operator when you call these agencies! They operate in partnership ..." Read review

No problems with Norwich Union!

AdvantagesGreat customer service and cheap prices

Disadvantagesnone that I can think of!

"I called Norwich Union for a quote because I was going on a trip to the US. Realising that insurance would be expensive to a destination that has such outrageous medical bills I expected to pay a lot. However when I called for a quote they advised me that I should buy the annual insurance (It was cheaper than the one trip, because I was going for 6 weeks). I paid around £40-50 for annual insurance, which I thought was a great deal! When I got home ..." Read review

AdvantagesGood help desk

DisadvantagesLet me down when I needed them at the help desk too

"Most policys seem to be the same so maybe I am harsh. I flew to Germany with Ryan Air and on the return the flight was cancelled due to fog. This cancellation in accordance to EU reglations 261/2004 is beyond the control of the airline so they are not liable for your costs and they did not have another flight for 48 hours. So booked with a competitor the next day. You would thnk your insurer would step up to the plate one way or another especially ..." Read review
