I always look to Travelex first and buy it as it is primary. However, a lot of the time, it is the more expensive so I end up with a cheaper secondary policy if it has the same coverage. Never had to put a claim in but from friends that have, I've heard it was settled quickly and satisfactorily.

Travelex Travel Basic
This is a review of the Travelex Travel Basic plan. I should say I'm very skeptical of insurance companies. I also believe that the only real evaluation of an ins company can be made if you try to actually file a claim. Any other review is not based on real information.

As marketed, it seemed to have the emergency health care coverage I needed for a ski trip to Europe (my girl friend did not have any type of health insurance, so I thought it prudent to get something).

I talked to a representative on the phone to try to confirm what was covered and what was not. The agent was very patient and answered my questions fairly completely. I called back to talk to another representative to confirm what the first had told me. I got different, less satisfying answers. This is what my experience with insurance companies has been, not everyone interprets things the same. I crossed my fingers and purchased it anyway, as it seemed a fair price compared to other comparable insurance available.

I went on the trip, nothing happened, no claim needed.

So I can only say that their sales office will answer the phone, I can't say if they would actually ever pay a claim. So I'm rating them 3 stars.

With all the recent negative publicity on cruise travel,
getting insurance from InsureMyTrip was money well spent. Wouldn't hesitate to purchase insurance for all my travel plans in the future.

My wife had to go to the medical center on our cruise ship. Treatment and medicine totaled $148.00.
We submitted a claim on Feb. 7 and received a check for the total cost in two weeks. No questions, no problems and fast response.
We will buy a policy from Travelex again.

The plan appears to cover my travel needs, but since I didn't need to use it -a good thing- one cannot be sure that it really did. I will most likely use Travelex Travel in the future.

Fortunately, we did not have the opportunity to exercise the coverage. However, thanks to InsureMyTrip, I was given ample information to determine that this was the best plan for my needs.
