The trip included a
CSA Travel Protection Custom
I have to say that I am glad I bought trip insurance from CSA Travel Protection as our planned trip along the Aleutian Islands was canceled by the Alaska Marine Ferry. In fact, several sailings were canceled because the ship, the Tustumena, had several unforeseen repair delays while in dry dock for scheduled maintenance. But I also have to say that I am disappointed in CSA Travel Protection as they at first rejected my claim for our trip cancellation. CSA claimed “scheduled maintenance” was not an unforeseen event and therefore not a covered event. Thus they could not reimburse me for our nonrefundable airline tickets. A covered event had to be a “mechanical breakdown” (unforeseen). Though there was no ship for us to sail on, it was my problem and not theirs. I had to contact the Alaska Marine Ferry to confirm to CSA that the several delays were due to unforeseen repairs and not just routine maintenance. Thus with it affirmed that the delays were of a “mechanical breakdown” nature, CSA then approved my claim. I would have thought this would have been a logical conclusion to explain why the sailing cancellations happened. The Alaska Marine Ferry would not have sold passage if the repair delays were “foreseen.” CSA Travel Protection did “come through” and paid my claim but, it left me rather disappointed with CSA’s first response.

Travel Guard Gold
The purchasing process was easy and the plan was reasonably priced. Claims is where the insurer decides if the cost was worthwhile and since I did not have to make a claim, I can only hope the company would have done as it claimed! For an expensive trip, with NONREFUNDABLE charges, it seems wise to have insurance.

American Express Global Travel Shield Deluxe
Having the coverage gave me "peace of mind" during my 14 day trip to Alaska. I knew if I had to leave for most reasons, American Express would have helped me. Luckily, I did not have to file a claim.

The trip included a
M.H. Ross Advantage Complete
This M.H. Ross plan seemed to provide the most coverage for our trip vs. other companies' plans, which is why we purchased it. When I was comparing plans I not only talked to the reps at InsureMyTrip.com, but I also called M.H. Ross. I have to say that the rep there didn't seem to be that familiar with the elements of the plan(s) I was inquiring about and weren't that interested in being helpful, it felt. Thankfully, we did not have a claim, so I cannot comment on what it'd be like to actually use it.

I do wish that one of these days some travel insurance company would include pets getting sick or passing away as one of the covered reasons for cancelling a trip. Pets are family members, too, and if they have a crisis one might have to cancel or postpone a trip just as if a human family member had a crisis. As it stands now, the only way to get even partial coverage to protect against pet crises is to purchase the "cancel for any reason" option. I surely hope that either M.H. Ross or some other company starts including pets in the list of legitimate reasons someone might have to cancel their trip.
