I am, we are, always delighted with the product and service from Footman James. I have just renewed my household policy, and asked to increase the value of contents. The care and attention to detail offered by Alison was really outstanding. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the agents, they are helpful, friendly and courteous. This is old-fashioned service at its best. Not to mention, of course, the excellent product.
