The trip included a
AXA Assistance USA Platinum
This was one of the rare plans that covered the two needs I had 1) $200,000 minimum medical and 2) coverage for accidental injury in amateur sports (I participated in a triathlon shortly before my trip). It was comprehensive but on the expensive side. I did not have to use the plan or call AXA post trip but they were helpful when I called before hand to double check coverage.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Prime
Nationwide is definitely not on your side! I purchased this plan for my wife's trip to Peru. Her suitcases were stolen from a bus by a team that opened the hold while the bus was rolling. The policy provided for $2000 lost luggage, about half the value of what was lost, so we filed a claim.

Nationwide did everything possible not to pay, in order by:
1. Claiming the vehicle was unattended at the time of theft thus ineligible for coverage (note, the bus was full, and moving at the time).
2. Demanding that we provide evidence of insurance coverage held by the Peruvian bus company.
3. Demanding that we file a claim with them.
4. Demanding that we await the outcome of the claim with the Peruvian bus company, even though we'd already provided evidence of the maximum they would pay out in the event the Peruvian bus company approved our claim (their maximum was ~$120).

After I threatened to go to the Insurance Commissioners of both of their home state of Florida and my home state of California, they relented and approved the claim, 3 months later, for the coverage amount, minus the $120 that the Peruvian bus company promised but that we will never see of course.

InsureMyTrip was very helpful in providing an advocate that also helped convince Nationwide to pay this claim in good faith. I will never buy another policy from Nationwide, but I am grateful for the help InsureMyTrip provided in pursuing this claim.

The trip included a
Global Alert! Preferred
I was in touch with the travel assistance team in regards to an issue. They first tried. Then were supposed to call back which was not done in a timely way. In the end they were no help at all and I wound up spending a lot of money on my international phone bill.

Travel Guard Gold
My cell phone was stolen from my hotel room, and I did not think it would be covered. I called when I got back home, and I was reimbursed in about 3 weeks.

The trip included a
Travelex Travel Basic
It was great to know I was protected from some unforeseen circumstance. This policy was less expensive than that provided by my travel company with just as much coverage.
