    I wish to speak with someone about travel insurance, I did get a quote for the 3 trips I am taking overseas this year but have mislaid those quotes.
    First trip Prague then Phuket in April, 2nd trip to Canada and USA and third trip Singapore and cruise back to Sydney. I was told you do not do annual policies.
    Could someone ring me about the quotes, perhaps you have them in your system?
    I belong to Australian Unity for health insurance.
    Many thanks
