Once you obtain your quote for travel insurance you can compare your cover easily on our website (they are sorted on price) however you can also look at policy benefits (a table of maximum benefits under travel insurance is produced) as well as look at the policy summaries/ key facts document and the policy wording.

We do not offer tesco travel insurance, post office, direct line, boots, churchill insurance,  sainsburys insurance , barclays insurance or marks and spencer travel insurance as these are closed schemes and not open to the broker market.

  • Ageas Insurance

  • Towergate

  • BIBA scheme

  • Citybond

  • COE

  • PJ Hayman

  • Aviva Insurance (annual)

  • Sunworld Plus

  • Arch

Some of these insurance companies specialise in different forms of insurance, which is why you must with travel insurance compare the products - MMA insurance for instance only offer annual multi trip insurance policies, whilst Ageas insurance rates are competitive for single trips as well as annual.

If, you want tesco insurance post office, direct line insurance, boots, churchilll, sainsburys , barclays or marks and spencer travel insurance on the other hand you will have to take the time and effort to compare each one individually and decide whether the policy meets your requirements and whether the policy cover is adequate - as well as review their terms and conditions or excesses.

About Us

B Portwood & Co Ltd are brokers who are based in the north East Of England - we have two offices in  Bishop Auckland and Consett. Since we were established in 1963 our aim has always been to treat our customers more than fairly and ensure that they get the product and service that they want. Although we operate on the internet, we feel that many people do not realise that the policy that they buy online provides substantially worse cover than a product sold through a broker. Regrettably many people do not compare cover until they have to make a claim - 'Only a fool or an expert should buy online'.

Duty to disclose Facts under any contract of insurance
