ROMFORD, England, January 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
AllClear Options, the first ever travel insurance comparison website for travellers with pre-existing medical conditions, has announced plans to further extend the list of providers and products available after reporting its first successful year of operations.
Since its launch in December 2010, the website has had more than 150,000 visitor hits resulting in more than 75,000 quotes being generated. Currently featuring six key providers, a further two insurers will be added in February providing 13 different products.
Mike Rutherford, Chairman of AllClear, says that getting a quote is easy: "All you have to do is input your medical details and a series of quotes will be generated. Or if preferred you can speak to a specialist within the AllClear Options call centre who will guide you through your quote.
"Rather than being referred to complete the chosen purchase on the provider's own website, customers can complete the purchase without leaving AllClear Options (website or Call Centre). We have proven that with just one screening we can match the customer's particular conditions with those products that best meet their needs at the best price."
Mike says that in a niche market there are a relatively small number of providers who are prepared to cover the risks of travellers with pre-existing medical conditions and fewer still who can provide online instant quote facilities: "Bringing a number of these providers together at AllClear Options will ensure that those travellers with medical conditions to declare can compare cover and price from different providers, giving them the best possible chance of getting the right cover for them," he says.
"Using our established expertise in this market we've been able to produce a viable comparison website which even offers features such as 'webchat' - a means of live messaging between the customer and one of our team, who can provide medical terminology or technical guidance to those who may be having difficulty online or if preferred, there's the option to get the same comparison service from our call centre.
"All this makes a compelling market offering both for the customer and for Specialist Medical Travel Insurance Providers, as evidenced by the growing number of providers now engaged."
