This plan did not require processing the claim through our personal health insurance; thus, we submitted our request for reimbursement of medical expenses incurred on our trip directly to Travelex. Our claim was approved and we eventually received our refund.

During the month that transpired from when I mailed the claim to receipt of a check, I called twice to track status of the claim. I called a week after mailing the paperwork to confirm that it had been received. The claims representative told me that processing would take 3 weeks. I called again at the 3 week mark and was told that a decision would be made by the end of the week. I told the claims representative that I was shopping for travel insurance for two international trips that we plan to make next year and that I was hesitant to use Travelex again due to the extended processing time for claims. Her response was "you can do what you want, but claims processing takes 3 weeks." I was quite taken aback at this response, I have worked in Customer Service and I would never put off a customer as she did.

I might use Travelex again if the price is right and the coverage is appropriate for our needs. I will have to prepare myself, however, for less that professional service from the claims department representatives if need arises to contact them.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. One of the great benefits of purchasing a Travelex product is that they offer primary coverage. Primary coverage means that the travel insurance provider will reimburse without requiring the involvement of primary collectible insurance. We are sorry to learn that you were dissatisfied with the customer service you received from the claims department and length of time it took to process the claim. Generally, travel insurance claims can take up to 4 weeks to complete. However, for customers who feel like the claims process is taking an usually long time, InsureMyTrip can assign a customer advocate to attempt to expedite the claim. Our representatives are available 7 days a week by calling 800-487-4722.

Simply needed medical coverage for a short trip abroad. The Basic Plan did the job nicely, and at a price I liked.

I did have the piece of mind of knowing that if any problem came up my insurance would likely cover it. In the past when I have had medical or travel issues on trips, InsureMyTrip has always provided coverage and at a reasonable price.

I considered several trip insurance providers for our trips to Panama and Europe. Travelex offered the best value of all the travel insurance providers, and InsureMyTrip made it easy to do my comparison shopping. A key decision point for me was that Travelex offered primary coverage, rather than secondary coverage.

For the same coverage, it was less expensive than the insurance offered by the cruise line.
