It is, of course, important where you take advice from. I always remember the phrase ‘information is worth at least as much as you paid for it’.  At White Mountain, our mission & our passion is to be customer-focused. This is a success for us, not transactions. Here are the views of some of our past clients, which include students, doctors, nurses, police, politicians, members of the royal family, embassy staff, shop & factory workers as well as holidaymakers. It gives a broad perspective on our strengths.
