Having had trouble with other companies in understanding what we needed, we should have come to Footman James in the first place. Total knowledge of our situation and what we were after, excellent pointers as to how we could better meet our requirement, a very speedy response to all our questions, and better still, a reasonable cost. One hopes that this is just the start in a long association with Footman James.

I would happily recommend Joseph Lewis (my very able account handler) and Footman James to anyone looking for motoring cover. Joseph has been very good in that he has actually listened to what I want out of an insurance policy and has provided outstanding customer service.
