for a trip to Italy. Italy.
The trip included a
InsureAssist TravCan
Although a very experienced international traveler (visited more than 70 countries and made at least 25 round-the-world trips), I had never before purchased travel insurance. Several of the provisions and restrictions surprised me, e.g., pre-existing medical conditions, but now that I understand the rules, I anticipate no more surprises.

I purchased travel insurance for my recent vacation at the recommendation of several co-traveling friends. Fortunately, my wife and I had no problems, but one of our friends broke her wrist and had to cut short the trip - they purchased their insurance through a different company then did I, so I assume they are in the process of filing a claim and will eventually get reimbursed the appropriate amount. Their experience has convinced me that trip insurance is a wise purchase, especially for expensive, non-business travel.

However, although I will purchase insurance from the same company in the future (because of ease-of-use and minimum hassle), I do have 2 concerns:

1. Documentation - since I do not have to file a claim, I have no experience with the requirements of my current insurance provider. But, based on my friend’s recent accident, this seems to be an inordinate amount of paperwork required, which obviously necessitated many phone calls and several visits to hospitals and doctors. Fourthly, we had 2 doctors with us on our trip and they were able to authenticate some of the documentation. But, although I am admittedly not an insurance professional, there did seem to be a requirement for a lot of (in my opinion, redundant and duplicative) paperwork.
2. Price - again, although I am not an insurance professional (but a very experienced business owner) and have no idea of the cost structure of this service, the price did seem very high. Obviously, from my friend’s perspective, when you have a problem and require reimbursement, insurance become very valuable. However, from my own experience (as I said, I am a very experienced international traveler with literally hundreds of flights and a few million frequent flyer miles), I do not understand why the cost is so high - my recent insurance purchase was about 4% of the insured value.

Other than concerns about the administration/documentation requirements and costs, I was very satisfied with the service and would recommend this insurance provider to my friends.

I never had to file a claim, which is what we all want, so I do not know how good this insurance actually is, but the coverage seemed good for the money.

Travelex Travel Select
I was very fortunate that I did not have to use the insurance I purchased but the peace of mind it bought was worth the cost, which was reasonable for the coverage provided. This trip was to Italy and I had purchased similar insurance three years ago for a trip to Paris, I would definitely purchase trip insurance again in the future.

HCC Medical Insurance Services Atlas International
Fortunately we didn't have to use the insurance, but it was comforting to know that in the event of an emergency we would be covered. The insurance was just what we needed at a reasonable price.

Being able to review many companies not only for the best coverage but also the most reasonable price is a real plus.

We didn't have a specific need for the insurance, which is the best-case scenario :) But I was happy with the coverage limits for the cost and felt glad to have the protection in case we needed it.

American Express Global Travel Shield Classic
I actually did file a claim on a trip a few years ago, and claims service was fair and prompt. This, plus the competitive price and decent coverage, were what convinced me to buy TC&II once again from this provider. As always, I compare providers and buy using InsureMyTrip.com, and find the AMEX GTS product good and reliable.
