I had to cancel this trip before we left due to a ruptured appendix. There was a ground stop at the airport that we had to make connections at so rescheduled for the next day. The next day is when I had my appendix ruptured. I filed for the insurance about 2 weeks later. TripMate handled the claim. It took 2 months for them to pay with me calling them frequently. While the representatives were nice, no one could do anything to see speed up the delay in my claim. I had to resend some of my paperwork since they had lost it. They would tell me that they had everything needed but things kept on getting delayed. No one would connect me with a supervisor. They were checking on things like a refund on the airplane ticket which I did not even claim since the airline had refunded that to me. Delay, delay, delay. Very unresponsive. The policy itself is fine. TripMate handles many of policies that are on this site. My advice is to go to TripMate's web page under claims to see the list that they handle - and then not use any of those companies since the claim process is very poor. I had purchased another policy for a trip in January that I had to cancel due to complications from the ruptured appendix. That company (Travel Insured International) handled my claim for the deposits that I had made and refunded all of my money within 2 weeks of my first contact with them. I will use them again.

I purchased the coverage many months before our trip, just in case. Happily, we didn't need to file a claim before, during, or after so I can't speak to that aspect, but it gave me peace of mind to have the insurance.

We've used InsureMyTrip numerous times and will again for trips that are expensive and include visits to developing countries.

It was a relief to know we would be covered in the event we would have to cancel due to circumstances out of our control

InsureMyTrip was very helpful in assisting me w/choosing the best plan for my circumstances. I especially appreciated the fact that an actual human always promptly answered the phone. =) My husband got a new job so we had to cancel our trip, and luckily we had purchased the "cancel for any reason" plan. Global Alert was extremely helpful and quick to follow up. The paperwork was very straight forward and easy to complete. It took about a month for me to actually receive the different checks, but I was expecting it to take awhile to process. Great experience; will purchase again!

We had to cancel an expensive pre-paid tour shortly before departure due to a medical reason. I was pleased with how smoothly the claim process went. I appreciated being able to track the progress of our claim online.
It took a little over three weeks from the day I sent in the documentation for the claim to the day I got the refund check.
I am very thankful that we had purchased travel insurance and that there weren't a lot of hassles involved in getting our refund.

We did not have any issues that needed assistance from your company, but it was good to know it was there.
