Travel Guard Basic
My family had to cancel a trip to Costa Rica at the last minute due to a relative who became very ill and was close to dying. We filed our claim, and within a couple of weeks, we were reimbursed for our trip. The representative from Travel Guard was pleasant and very helpful. I would highly recommend Travel Guard for trip insurance.

Didn't need it this trip, but I would use this company again for the ease of ordering it online and the comparative cost.

Purchased to satisfy the anxiety of one of our group, your plan worked well. High quality hospital emergency services are very inexpensive in Croatia ( we have used them twice in two years for a total cost of $150 ), we carry travel insurance only for severe trauma/evacuation situations.

My mother was in hospice, and this is the only insurance company that claimed it would cover prepaid travel expenses if I had to cancel the trip. Since I did not have to file a claim, I do not know if in reality prepaid items would have been covered. Sometimes the fine print is misleading.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. Travel Guard does provide coverage in the event of a death of a non-traveling family member.

Like most coverages, one cannot tell whether the plan was satisfactory as we never filed a claim, but your Reps were most helpful answering any questions re: coverages, etc. We felt the premium costs were reasonable for what we were offered, Like all insurance, we bought it in the hopes of never using it---IT WORKED!!!

Right before our trip we learned that friends of ours were in a traffic accident causing the wife to be hospitalized for several weeks. They were scheduled for a two week cruise a few days after the accident, but had no travel insurance. They lost all the money they paid for the trip. We were glad we had gotten trip insurance so that if anything like that had happened to us, we would have been covered.

So glad I had trip insurance! I had to cancel my trip 30 days before leaving for medical reasons. Travel Guard paid the claim in less than 30 days of my sending the claim forms in to them.
