Travel Insured Trip Protector Lite Expanded
One never knows how good an insurance policy is until a claim is filed. I didn't have to file a claim. I can only attest that the policy was reasonably priced and covered what I needed. I liked that I was able to buy it a bit at a time since I didn't know what my final cost would be until 45 days before the trip began.

HCC Medical Insurance Services Atlas International
The email responses take too long. It's supposed to be an international plan but it does not account for ways for people overseas to get in touch. I twice requested a phone call back via email as international calls to the 800-number based in the USA are expensive and there's no way to call collect from a cell phone. However both times I didn't receive an email back until 1-2 days later and no one ever called me back as requested. Thankfully there was no emergency and i decided I could live without the follow-up. In theory it covers the basics in case of an emergency abroad. In practice, I haven't had to put it to the test.

Did not need it so I can't say how good the response and customer service is, but it gave me peace of mind having it in the case of an emergency

Travel Insured Trip Protector Lite Expanded
Unfortunately several personal items disappeared from Shumbulala Safari Lodge. Travel Insured acted promptly and fairly and my claim was settled.
I think I should advise Trip Advisor.

I was happy to have the plan in the event I had an accident or trip interruption. Felt that I had a reasonable plan with costs I could live with.

For what it says it covered the price was decent, but not having needed it and not filing a claim its hard to say how good the coverage and service actually would be.

I'm always happy when I don't have to file a claim for insurance benefits. That said, this coverage seemed fine but I thought it was terribly expensive.

CSA Travel Protection Custom
My chief concern in purchasing this plan was to protect against the financial impact of serious illness in my elderly father, illness which might lead me to cancel the trip before it started or which might require me to return home early. I am glad to have this insurance and happy that I was able to complete the trip without interruption.

Fortunately, we did not need to use the plan, but it was easy to acquire and far more competitive in price and features than other plans. The plan had good reviews from independent reviewers, so it was an easy choice to make.
