A member of our travel group with Travel Guard insurance was admitted to a hospital during the trip. I am waiting to see how Travel Guard pays his claim. That will determine if I purchase Travel Guard in the future.

Fortunately we have never had to use our plan; however, I buy one each year because we have elderly parents. One never knows what health issue could arise that would interrupt a vacation.

I almost had to use the plan, as I got very sick, but did not. My main complaint, though, is that it is rather expensive, as they ALL are. Would love to know how much of the premiums are paid out in claims.

It was such a relief to have travel ins. even though I didn't need to use it. For the peace
of mind I will get it in the future.
I was very pleased with ease of
getting the policy very kind and helpful rep.
The above ratings were based on not having to file a claim so hopefully it would
be the same had I filed one.

The good news is that I've never had to use my insurance. So I can't really judge the "quality" of my selection. I'll continue to buy it and hopefully never have to make a claim or find out if I made the right choice

I never received a printed copy of the policy I bought. Other than that, thank God, I didn't need to make a claim--so, I don't know how responsive you are.

Thanks!

While we didn't need it, buying insurance gives me peace of mind. With prices these days, who can afford not to buy the protection.
