Tim Cooke, CEO, Elac Study Vacations:

"At Elac Study Vacations we managed to deliver a successful summer course in July and August 2021. The success of the course was hugely supported by the services Endsleigh Insurance provided to our students. We did have some claims we needed to make that related to Covid-19 and Endsleigh supported us every step of the way, which made the claims process so much easier and efficient. Toby and his team provided invaluable support with these claims throughout every step of the process.

We strongly recommend working with Endsleigh Insurance as the enhanced Covid-19 coverage they have in place provides reassurance to our partners, parents and students."
