I contacted Nick to help me with my health insurance after reading the positive feedback on TNH. He sent me several options and we went through everything in detail. For the first time I fully understood the different health plans and policies. I followed his recommendation for the best deal (quality & price), having the piece of mind knowing that I have a good insurance and someone to contact in case of an emergency. * highly recommended *
Nick is THE guy in Hanoi to go through for insurance, hands down. I have gone through him for health insurance the past two years (since I discovered him) and have also purchased travel insurance through him when visiting the States (since I chose a regular policy that did not include coverage there). I am currently chatting with him about life insurance. My family is moving to China in a months' time and I double-checked with Nick recently whether I can still email him for travel insurance and the like and the answer was YES! I have always been nothing but pleased with Nick as an insurance broker. He really is out for what will be best for you and goes the extra mile to find it, even when his commission would be better if you went a different route (which it often would be). If you are looking for health insurance, travel insurance, life insurance, talk to Nick!
Below is the review I wrote for Nick 2 years ago and, by the way, the review I am posting above right now is only the 2nd review I have written on TNH in now 8 1/2 years :-)
First review, 24 months ago:
In 6 1/2 years in Vietnam, I've never written a review on TNH, but this is a good place to start!
I am about to have a baby and will no longer have insurance as I will no longer be working out of the home. A colleague of my husband's needed to search out insurance for his wife and child in the past and recommended Dominick to us.
I wrote to Dominick and had a reply in less than an hour. All of his responses from then on were within the day I wrote to him and many were in under an hour. He even took the time to respond to emails from me when he was sick and supposed to be on holiday. Though I only spoke to him on the phone once, he gave me both his Skype info and his mobile number and let me know I could chat with him on either with any questions whenever convenient.
Dominick's advice was straight-forward and balanced and I wholeheartedly agreed with his recommendation. I will soon be starting my new policy AND, when my baby is 2 weeks old, she will be added to that policy for FREE for the rest of the policy year! WOW!
I highly recommend Dominick to anyone who is looking for health insurance. You can go it on your own, but his services are free to you - you have nothing to lose and much to gain!
I contacted Nick Veltre based on the positive feedback I'd read here. He got back to my email straight away and offered me some great unbiased, informative advise, about what insurance package might suit my needs. Nick has been living in Hanoi for years and so knows the city and culture like the back of his hand. If you're traveling to Hanoi and need insurance, there really is nobody else out there who you should contact.
I needed a health insurance for the wide variety of unlucky accidents that could happen in Vietnam and Nick suggested me two companies. I compared his offer against other agents and Nick was cheaper.
I opted for an insurance with William Russel with emergency evacuation. Signing up was easy, I filled in a form and everything was arranged very quickly through email. Didn't have to leave my house at all :)
A word of advice: if you're from Europe just like me (Netherlands) then choose to be billed in dollars. As the exchange rate that William Russel calculates for EUR is quite high. For example you can choose an excess, or as we Dutch call "eigen risico" :) of 1500,- EUR or 1600,- USD.... I compared the rates with the annual historical rate on Oanda and thought it was much better to be billed in dollars.
Nick replied to my emails very quick (even on sunday)! A rare thing in Hanoi. He is older than me, and maybe older than most expats, has a family, is straightforward and he lives in Vietnam. Just a kind person who works hard for his family.
Email him and see it for yourself.
It was arm-twisting time again. I was trying to squirm out of renewing my insurance with SIS but Nick fecking wouldn’t it let go. And he was right, and made me an offer I literally couldn’t refuse, because he wouldn’t let me. So I’m hooked-up again, a slightly-different deal this time but still at a good price, and I’d have been as stupid as I look if I’d turned it down.
Speaking of looks, I realised this time round - thanks in particular to his haircut - that Nick bears a striking resemblance to crook-lawyer Saul Goodman (‘Better Call Saul’!) from Breaking Bad. Of course he denied it, just as Saul would deny that he’d ever met his own mother if he was being paid enough. I don’t know what this means, but it’s worth bearing in mind. (Coincidentally, my highly-deranged cousin, Waterpussy, also features prominently in BB, but I’m digressing now…).
As ever, it was nice and easy, straight up, and once again the most fun I’ve ever had while buying insurance. Better call Nick!
