***UPDATE - ATLASDIRECT TRAVEL INSURANCE DISSOLVED***
Atlas Travel Insurance Limited was dissolved in August 2017, according to Companies House.
Although the Atlasdirect website still exists it won't allow you to see a price for your quote, no one will answer the phone and the business is no longer authorised by the FCA (despite a line on its site saying it is).
It is best to avoid trying to get a quote from Atlas. You can see a list of the best travel insurance companies here.
Thank you to our readers for alerting us that Altlas no longer exists
