The plan is like any other but is considerably more expensive than what other companies offer at the time of booking. Also the amount of paper work needed to file your claim is a lot.

Travel Insured Worldwide Trip Protector Lite
I hate buying trip insurance because the coverage is typically very limited. It is really just to protect you from losing all of your money in case cancellation of the trip is required.
If travelers would read the contract, they would be surprised at the small amount of coverage these plans provide. Reading the contract once the loss has occurred is too late.
All this being said, the InsureMyTrip website provides a great location to compare prices and plans. Just realize that good coverage will be very expensive.

Travel Insured Worldwide Trip Protector Lite
Since I did not have to file a claim, I really don't know how thorough the coverage was compared to my perceptions of the coverage and reading of the policy. It was still not completely clear to me whether a prepaid hotel room cost, if lost due to a delayed flight, for whatever reason, would be covered by the plan. I did speak to someone but still wasn't positive as the policy seems to leave some "wiggle room".

The trip included a
CSA Travel Protection Custom
My trip to India was delayed by 5 days due to hurricane Sandy on the east coast. Airports were closed 3 days. I also had a power outage for 3 days with no computer or phone.
I contacted CSA to alert them that my trip was going to start 5 days later and asked for coverage to continue for the additional 5 days. They would not automatically extend my coverage but told me to file a claim and they would review it and proceed from there. When I left on my trip I did not know if I had the extended coverage.

The end result was they would insure me for the additional days for an additional cost. I found this out after being on my trip for a week. They wanted me to call them collect and give payment over the phone. I chose not to do this and fortunately I had no problems during any part of the trip.

I did not like the way they handled this. Since my original return was delayed by inclement weather and the flight had to be rescheduled due to airport closures, I don't understand why it was not covered by the policy. In their policy on page 9, item #3 and 4
state that I am covered for this very thing. CSA stated that I did not notify them until the day after my trip started. That was because I had a power outage too and was unable to. I also don't see where it states this in the contract.

Anyway, the end result is that I would not use CSA again, nor would I recommend them to my friends.

Sincerely,
Diana Z

    We are happy to hear everything turned out well. CSA stated you would have to file a claim or pay the additional premium for the 5 days of coverage you would need.

Travelex Travel Select
Very comforting to know I had a comprehensive plan for traveling to India. Fortunately, I didn't have to make a claim, but I know the service is wonderful from past claim experience.

Travel Guard Basic
I almost had to use the plan, as I got very sick, but did not. My main complaint, though, is that it is rather expensive, as they ALL are. Would love to know how much of the premiums are paid out in claims.

Ease of sign-up and information available on line was very good. Since I did not need to file a claim, I cannot comment on how good the follow-up would have been.

I didn't have the need to use the plan's benefits which is a good thing on my part. The plan seemed adequate, but I would like to have included trip cancellation protection since trips are booked far ahead and illness, injuries, family problems, etc. could cause trip cancellation.

International Medical Group Patriot International
My 20 year old son was going to travel in Asia for six months, so we decided to buy a medical/evacuation policy just in case. At one point in his trip he became ill and spent three days in a hospital in Vietnam (FV Hospital--great care). Luckily, he got better, so no one needed to fly out to see him, and he did not need to be evacuated. The bill was about $1,800, which he paid in full with a credit card. We then submitted to bill to our regular health insurance company (the travel plan is secondary), which nicely paid all but $369. IMG them processed the rest of the claim, and paid it, less the $250 deductible. In the end, they paid $119, which is what the policy called for. We were just lucky that our health insurer covered this as well. The claims process was not the fastest (about 6 weeks), but is was accurate, and it was fair. They were very easy to work with, and provided everything they needed to.
