The telephone contact person was well informed and efficient.

I am glad that I had the policy just in case I needed it.

Travel Guard
I only want a policy that covers the costs associated with trip cancellation, and travel delays that might occur during the trip. I already have coverage for medical and medical evacuation. I am paying for stuff I do not want or need. However, this plan was competitively priced.
