Excellent service, every year and for every journey.

Mr Warrington, 05 Jul 2017, 10 out of 10

Good service yesterday but I do wish you'd sent me a reminder. Or indeed responded to my e mails earlier.

Ms Collins, 05 Jul 2017, 8 out of 10

Excellent website, easy to use.

Miss Tailor, 03 Jul 2017, 10 out of 10

Very good service as always. My son was taken ill whilst back packing two years ago and spent a week in a Thai hospital. We contacted Essential by phone and it was all sorted directly with the hospital. We had enough on our minds without having to deal with the Insurance side of things, Essential did it all for us, perfect service, thank you.

It was very difficult to find the right number to call and I got passed from pillar to post, however when I eventually got the right person they were very helpful and explained everything very clearly.

You are taking advantage of my partners heart valve replacement last year. You need to reconsider your premiums. We have been with you for years, never claiming, both fit and well.

Mstr Watson, 18 Jun 2017, 10 out of 10

The operator I spoke to was friendly without being pushy. Unfortunately there was a fault on the line and connection was lost for a couple of minutes, which was frustrating. But when reconnected, the whole transaction was completed in a friendly and efficient way.
