"Your Life Protected did an excellent job in securing us the right level of life cover at an affordable premium which we had previously thought wouldn't be possible due to medical history of a serious illness. They organised everything very quickly and enabled us to go ahead with exchanging contracts on our house purchase without delay. Thanks to the excellent service we received from Your Life Protected we are delighted to now have peace of mind knowing we have life cover in place."

"I regard myself as a very active and healthy individual, and so was very surprised to find previous quotes (around £25.00 per month) so overly inflated from the standard persons cover. Mike Derham promptly picked up my email query and was courteously sympathetic towards my situation. Without making any promises he quickly reassured me that there should be much better offers available in the market, and kept me regularly updated with the progress of any applications he made on my behalf. Having already spent a fair amount of time filling out forms for various different applications I was pleasantly surprised when it became clear there was very little I needed to do from my end until a new provider had been identified. As it transpired, Mike found me a brilliant deal - not only bettering my previous best quote, but bringing it down by over 50%. Now I am paying almost £15.00-per-month less than what I would've with the other insurer, which will save me around £170 per year! Furthermore, after a brief hold-up on the insurers part in getting the required documentation out to me, my first month's charges were waived as a result of the inconvenience, after Mike flagged this up with them directly. I can't recommend YourLifeProtected enough to anyone that feels they aren't getting a fair deal when it comes to cover. They not only restored my faith in the insurance industry, but also left me feeling extremely satisfied - and without costing me a single penny!"
