We were satisfied with the plan and never needed to use it. We appreciated the reminder and policy review a few days before we left.

Since we are both seniors and this was our first cruise, we wanted protection since at our age anything can happen. The cost of the protection was worth the peace of mind. I am glad we did not need to file a claim.

The plan gave us peace of mind while we traveled overseas. I took this plan out based on a recommendation from my sister and her husband who travel a lot. I will definitely recommend it to others and use it in the future.

for a trip to United States - Continental. United States - Continental.
Travel Guard Basic
We bought the coverage for medical evacuation contingencies but had a trip delay with a missed flight connection in San Francisco. Travel Guard reimbursed hotel and meals but there were lots of challenges to making a claim. In all 21 pages of documentation was required including verification from the airline as to their responsibility for the delay. The refund came very quickly after we submitted the claim. It was a lot of work to file the claim and follow the procedures in the policy for a trip delay but in the end great to have the coverage.

When my iPad was stolen at the airport in Paris (within 24 hours of departure from Atlanta), I was determined not to let this dampen my spirits for my long awaited trip to Eastern Europe. What a relief and pleasure it was dealing with TravelGuard when I submitted a claim for the iPad. My claim was processed so quickly and I am deeply appreciative of the service I received. I personally will use TG in the future and recommend your company to others. Thank you all!

We think that Travel Guard offers a great product for a reasonable cost. Over the years, we have had to make use of this protection twice. Both times Travel Guard representatives were able to resolve the claims in short order.

At a younger age we didn't get the added insurance, but we do now. It's just nice to have an extra piece of mind. And the cost would be worth it if you need to use it.
