HTH Worldwide TripProtector Preferred

The HTH Worldwide Travel Insurance TripProtector Preferred plan builds upon the Trip Protector Classic plan. The plan also offers the option to add on cancellation for any reason, if you are purchasing the insurance within 15 days of the initial trip payment and certain conditions are met. This allows you to cancel the trip for any reason up until two days before departure and receive a refund of 75% of your trip cost.

The TripProtector Preferred plan also includes trip interruption coverage, which reimburses up to 150% of the insured trip cost. The additional 50% can help to offset the cost of an emergency one-way ticket back home.

TripProtector Preferred offers medical coverage of $1,000,000, and does not require you to have primary health insurance in force to be eligible for coverage. This coverage acts secondary to any expenses that are not covered by your primary health insurance plan and helps to fill the holes to cover costs.

You are provided with a 24-hour emergency hotline that you can call for informational services, emergency assistance and concierge services. Security profiles can be obtained for your destination so that you can be well prepared wherever you may be traveling. It will allow you to stay on top of any travel alerts or health warnings that may arise before or while you are traveling.

Also, access to HTH's global community of physicians, dentists, hospitals and other healthcare providers is available. Search online to find and choose the provider that best fits your needs. You can obtain provider profiles, which give you details about the doctor, their qualifications and specialty services that they provide. This service allows you to make an informed decision if you need to seek medical attention during your trip.

The plan also includes the Direct Billing program. If you choose a provider within the HTH network and inform them 24 hours or more prior to the appointment, (or use HTH representatives to make the appointment for you) they may pay for your medical care up front. This can help you avoid a claims process.

Coverage was good on paper, but as I did not have to file a claim I can't really review the product. It would be 5-stars if any claims were handled great and 1-star if I would have had to fight for the coverage.

I always buy travel insurance after hearing nightmare stories from friends - this policy covered everything I needed and was affordable - an excellent choice. I should add, however, that I did not make a claim and cannot comment on that aspect of the company.

Most of the reviews here are a bit silly, considering the buyer didn't actually USE the insurance that was purchased. What they're essentially reviewing is the "peace of mind" they purchased, based on promises the various companies made to cover possible events. I would pay attention to the reviewers who actually had to file a claim first. Those are the only reviews that mean anything. Having said that, as a former tour guide, I can tell you that trip insurance is a necessity, especially when traveling internationally. The last thing you want to worry about is covering the cost of medical expenses or emergency evacuation if you find yourself in trouble in a foreign county. Even domestic travel these days can result in unforeseen expense, at which point you'll be glad you have your own coverage. A short stay in a hospital somewhere could put a serious dent in your wallet in this country, and not necessarily be covered by your health plan at home. Read the wording of the insurance plan you want to purchase carefully. Watch out for terms like "secondary", which indicate the coverage only kicks in after some other company acts as the "primary" insurer. Translated, that means you have to prove you weren't covered by something else first (like your personal medical insurance) before the insurance will cover the expense. To me that means paperwork, delays, and loopholes they have available to them to avoid covering an event. In today's political climate, you'll want options if disaster or violence of some sort strikes. And, at best, lost luggage is no fun. Our luggage ended up in China once, instead of San Francisco. Took over a week to get it back. I've seen it all, and wouldn't want to travel without insurance. As for how good this plan I chose is, I wouldn't be able to really judge because I ended up not having to test their promises. Reading through it in detail, the coverage sounded good for our needs. But the only real test is filing an actual claim. Happily, filing a claim wasn't necessary this time. The company did follow-up immediately will all necessary information once the plan was purchased, and send reminders just before the trip began. We were pleased with all of that, and hope any claim would have been handled in a similar fashion. I've purchased several plans here over the years, and will continue to do so. To me that just makes sense for any trip, and is the equivalent of packing the proper gear in the event of rain. I don't want rain to ruin my vacation either. Finally, make sure you understand exactly what's covered under the plan you choose, BEFORE you go. Once you're on your way, it'll be too late. And don't wait until the day of departure to buy, because then it IS too late. They don't allow same-day purchase! Happy travels.
