Price was right for the coverage. There were no trip issues that could be used for further evaluation.

Thankfully, we didn't need to use the insurance, but I always feel better knowing I have it. Things can go wrong, as we have previously experienced.

The representative that I talked to on the phone was helpful and courteous. She answered my questions and was very informative. She did not try to "up sell" but got me the package that met my needs. I did not make a claim.

Someone else on our trip suffered a stroke on the last day of the trip and had to stay in Croatia. I will have to think about that whenever getting insurance in the future.

I think it is really hard to rate satisfaction for a service such as Insurance unless you are unfortunate enough to have to use it.
I have purchased my Travel Insurance with Travel Guard on more than one occasion and they seem to be very effective with the sign on process and what they offer at a comparable market price.

We had to cancel our trip due to my husband's emergency gall bladder surgery. Travel Guard responded to a phone call with clear instructions as to what was needed to file the claim and they processed the claim promptly with no hassles.

Travel Guard Basic
As a senior citizen, knowing that Medicare will not cover any medical expenses outside the USA, I feel more comfortable traveling outside the country, knowing that if I have to evacuate, I can. Travel Guard Basic plan allows me reasonable insurance to assure my safe return to the USA should it be necessary. Thank goodness, so far, I haven't had to use it, but I know it is there for me.

We would definitely purchase this plan again. Our vacation was for 3 weeks but we only got to stay 1 week. My dad got sick and we had return home to help care for him. We filed our claim in November 2012 and received our refund in late January 2013. The hardest part of the claim was getting the medical information from the doctors that treated him. Our claims analyst was great to work with and gave us guidance on what we needed and how to go about getting the claim forms filed. Very pleased with our purchase.
