This is a review of the Travelex Travel Basic plan. I should say I'm very skeptical of insurance companies. I also believe that the only real evaluation of an ins company can be made if you try to actually file a claim. Any other review is not based on real information.
As marketed, it seemed to have the emergency health care coverage I needed for a ski trip to Europe (my girl friend did not have any type of health insurance, so I thought it prudent to get something).
I talked to a representative on the phone to try to confirm what was covered and what was not. The agent was very patient and answered my questions fairly completely. I called back to talk to another representative to confirm what the first had told me. I got different, less satisfying answers. This is what my experience with insurance companies has been, not everyone interprets things the same. I crossed my fingers and purchased it anyway, as it seemed a fair price compared to other comparable insurance available.
I went on the trip, nothing happened, no claim needed.
So I can only say that their sales office will answer the phone, I can't say if they would actually ever pay a claim. So I'm rating them 3 stars.
Robert M. would
recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
