    FAB French Insurance were amazing!!! Because of my lack of planning, I had left my Private Health Insurance which I needed for my visa to France to the last minute. This meant they only had 1 working day to turn it around, but Fabien assured me that as long as I was quick to respond to anything they needed from me, they would be able to do it. And, they did!!! I got the certificate of insurance and proof of payment within that day, and I used them the very next day to apply for my visa. My visa was accepted and I'm going to France! To everyone at FAB, I can't thank you enough. Thank you so much!!!

    Hi Fabian, just like to say what an excellent service we've received from Fab insurance. We've used you for our medical insurance to support our long stay visitor visa application (successful!) and also our car insurance having now moved to France. All your staff we've had contact with have been friendly, helpful and very professional in their approach. They've also taken the time to explain the products available and response times have been excellent. Would definitely recommend. Best wishes. Meg & Paul.

    Hello Fabien, I was impressed by the swift response by your company to my request for health insurance to accompany my application for a long stay visa, my visa was granted immediately and we are now living in France in the sun, (too much sun over 40c) Thank you for your excellent service. kind regards Christopher Sadler

    We were "introduced" to Fabien through a recommendation on an "ex-pat" site. Although we had been content with the service from our previous insurers, we were quickly provided with quotations that they could not match.Since then, Fabien and his family have become personal friends, and he looks after all of our insurance matters professionally, quickly and (very important for Scots!) at the best price.I have recommended him to others, and would continue to do so.

    Fabien was extremely helpful to me when I was looking for health insurance 2 years ago. He speaks excellent English and helped guide me through several quotes for me to consider. I asked Fabien to clarify a few details I didn't quite understand before I actually signed up for the policy I chose and his replies were always prompt and clearly explained. l am very happy with Fabien's company and I highly recommend to others.

    Fabien was recommended to us a few years ago. Our insurance broker, who was superb, had retired and the replacements in the business were less impressive. Fabien replaced our cover with an equivalent at a substantially lower price and more recently has been very helpful over a complicated claim resulting from an unrelated person crashing their car into the front of our house. Highly recommended and Fabien and his staff speak excellent English.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Who is behind Fab Insurance?

    We’re an independent insurance broker. Established in 2015 and founded by Fabien, we’re a small team of insurance advisors (in-house) located in the Southwest of France and operating in various EU countries (France, Portugal, Spain, Italy and more…).

    What is considered a compliant insurance policy for VISA?

    Without going into too much detail, most embassies expect to get an insurance certificate that covers the date of the VISA (with a mention that it is on automatic renewal for long term VISAs, for example). They also want to see a mention that “medical expenses” are covered at least up to 30.000€ (and no mention of an exclusion of any sort), no mention of any excess/deductible, and cover for public liability & repatriation.

    Who am I buying my policy from?

    You will be insured directly through the insurance company you’ve selected, although your broker (us) will remain with you all the time, whatever it is for your application, questions on the policy, claims, etc. We’ll always be there, and our advice will always be for free.
