Didn't need it, but if I did it was there! Reasonably priced, with many features!

Although ultimately I did not need to file a claim, when our travel plans were delayed by the airline and I phoned the insurer with questions, I felt as though the customer care representative was dismissive and curt with me.

Travelex Travel plan is helpful in the event of unforseen emergencies during or before travel. Fortunately, my travel was uneventful, but, my family members had to cancel their trip. Hence, the Travelex policy was very helpful in claiming for the panelties charged by the airlines.

Was comforting to know we had travel insurance should we have needed assistance.

I was reasonably happy with this plan, and would recommend it to other travelers. Before my trip, the government issued an advisory against traveling to Kenya. I called Travelex, and discovered that they would not cover us if we decided to cancel, since the terrorist attack prompting the advisory did not occur in a city on our itinerary. That is in the policy, so fair enough, I suppose. We ended up taking the trip, and had no problems in Kenya. However, we missed a connection in London due to inclement weather. We had to pay for food, transportation, and 2 nights at an airport hotel. Plus, we had no baggage, so we had to buy clothes. I called Travelex on our return home to initiate the claim. The representative sent me a form and instructions, and I submitted hotel, food , transportation and clothing receipts. Travelex paid for all but the clothing, and only then let us know that we had to make a separate claim for a baggage delay. I filled out the new form, resubmitted all the clothing receipts, and sure enough, we were reimbursed for the money spent. Everything worked out well in the end, so my only gripe was that the process was slow and had to be repeated, because the representative didn't explain that I would need to make two separate claims.
