I chose Travelex because it had rapidly and affirmatively processed an earlier claim for the costs of a delayed trip on a different trip. On this trip I was primarily concerned about being unable to travel because of a pre-existing medical condition. Fortunately that did not occur and i was able to go. However, I misunderstood how much of my airline ticket costs would be refunded in the event of a cancelation. This was my own fault, not Travelex's or InsureMyTrip (IMT). I did not inquire before purchasing. Nevertheless, my suggestion for IMT is that it provide a very brief written primer on what costs might be refunded, or what to look for. In my case I did not correctly understand that taxes paid would have been refunded had I not gone. This meant that I incorrectly underestimated the amount of coverage I needed. Had I made a claim, I was told later by both Travelex and Insure My Trip, it would have been rejected for this reason, not just paid out on the basis of actual loss, but rejection because of this mistake. IMT could assist potential clients by explaining, in a written manner, how this figure should be calculated.
