Travel Guard Basic
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.

Plan was very comprehensive when traveling to 6 countries in Europe. Due to each country's differences, medical, baggage, and travel delay were critical in comparison to just trip cancellation.

We had purchased Travel Guard for an earlier trip in March 2014 which we had to cancel. Our claim service was excellent and we knew that we could rely on Travel Guard. We purchased insurance again for our September trip which happened on schedule. Would definitely purchase Travel Guard for our next trip.

I have been a frequent buyer of Travel Guard policies. This time I had a small claim for a doctor's visit. The claim was handled to my satisfaction. Thank you for your good service.

I was happy with the way I could compare plans and prices on InsureMyTrip. Travel Guard Basic had the main elements of coverage I look for, mainly medical coverage and medical evacuation if needed.
