Even though we didn't use it, having that peace of mind made our trip that much more relaxing.

I felt very secure with the basic plan in place for both myself and my daughter. Although we did not need to file any claims, it was worth the peace of mind leading up to the trip. If we had an emergency need to interrupt our plans, the investment was reimbursable.

We didn't need to use the coverage, but when we purchased it, it appeared to be a great plan at a reasonable cost.
