She was excellent.
Anthony Paul
awesome service and person serving me over phone was very helpful and courteous. will be happy to use service again.
Perfect booking support. Booking via internet failed first. There was no confirmation by mail coming. But the help by the suppport-lady at the phone was excellent. So I booked.
I needed to change our motorhome dates, and I could do it all online, new quote, new payment, and the insurance changed with it too. MUCH easier than waiting on hold to call centre.
