for a trip to Peru. Peru.
Travel Guard Basic
I have used TravelGuard before but luckily have not had to use it. First trip I got labels to apply to valuables (camera, iPod, etc) but did not this time. Maybe it is good not to have those as if someone wants to steal them, they know you are covered & will get compensation. I will use Travel Guard again whenever I travel Internationally.

We just returned from a trip to Peru. One night we were at dinner with 2 other couples on the trip. They had never heard of your website. I told them how easy it is, etc. - also they will get much more competitive rates than purchasing through the travel company. So I think you will be hearing from these people.

Will always buy insurance from now on. no problems with this trip but the last one I had to make a claim because of a heart attack. A little bit of a hassle but the check came through.

for a trip to Austria. Austria.
Travel Guard Basic
This is not a review since I did not have to use the services of the plan. I would like to ask a question, i.e. what is the meaning of the numeral "2" especially as refers to Emergency Medical Evacuation? Would I have been evacuated if the need had arisen?

    Thank you for your question. The red "2" indicates secondary coverage. (in lieu of primary coverage.) Primary coverage will pay first, before any other collectible insurance. Secondary coverage will pay you after any other Primary collectible insurance has paid the claim and the Primary policies' limits have been exhausted.

for a trip to United States - Hawaii. United States - Hawaii.
Travel Guard Basic
I did not have to file a claim, which is the real test, but I almost missed the trip because of complications from a surgery. I have used Travel Guard before, filed claims a couple of times, and have had good experiences with the representatives.

for a trip to Turks and Caicos Islands. Turks and Caicos Islands.
Travel Guard Basic
I purchased this plan because I have an elderly grandparent who I was afraid was going to pass away and wanted coverage in case I needed to cancel to attend funeral etc. The rep I spoke to assured me this plan would be sufficient if I needed to cancel for this reason. Fortunately, my grandparent rallied and we went on the trip. I can't say how easy it might of been to file a claim since I didn't have to, but felt better knowing I had some insurance in case.
