We are not a call centre full of pushy sales people, instead we are approachable and will take the time to listen to your needs before working on your behalf to source the right product with suitable cover at a competitive price. Many of our commercial clients and their staff believe in our service and are also customers of Dobson and Hodge Ltd for their own insurance needs.

Important Information for customers with pre-existing medical conditions
We are obliged to inform you of how to improve your access to travel insurance policies that includes cover for more serious medical conditions.
The following factors would determine when this information is relevant to you:
• You have not been offered, or we/the insurer, have declined a quotation wholly or partly due to a medical condition
• Your policy has been cancelled, wholly or partly, due to a medical condition
• You have been offered a policy with a medical condition exclusion, which cannot be removed from the policy
• You have been offered a policy with a medical condition premium of £100 or more
• You have been offered a policy in respect of which the medical condition premium is not known.
We would like to provide you with details of a ‘Medical Cover Firm Directory’, which is a publicly available directory that only lists firms that provide or arrange travel insurance policies that cover more serious medical conditions. The directory will also show you enough information about each firm listed, so you can make an informed initial choice about which provider might meet your needs.
Some of the advantages of using the directory are it makes it easier for you to navigate the available market and it makes it more likely that you will find a firm who:
• Is willing to offer cover for your condition
• Is willing to offer cover for your condition without specific exclusions
• Is willing to offer cover for your condition at a more affordable price.
