Travel Guard Basic
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.

The plan is like any other but is considerably more expensive than what other companies offer at the time of booking. Also the amount of paper work needed to file your claim is a lot.

We went on a cruise to Mexico. While on the cruise a woman got sick and had to be taken off the ship via the US Coast Guard. She was then taken to San Diego where she was put in an ambulance and taken to the hospital. We spoke with her son-in-law about her ordeal and the first question I asked "Did she have trip insurance?" The answer was no! They said that they could kick themselves no for not buying it. Saw another woman laying on her back (she tripped) and broke her arm. Don't know if she had trip insurance - I hope she did. So many things can happen while away from home - don't leave home with trip insurance!

We got this just as a backup with going on a trip in winter. You never know what might happen. We took in some of the shows they had to offer.

This was the first time we purchased trip insurance. It was easy to obtain and met our needs. We did not need to use it, but it was comforting knowing it was there in case we needed it.

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.

Best thing was: I didn't need to make a claim because everything went perfectly.

Of COURSE I would buy from you again!
