Travelex Travel Basic

Travel Basic is a budget friendly plan offering comprehensive trip cost protection as well as coverage for other unforeseen events that may arise during your trip. Although no one wants to have to use their insurance, it will give you peace of mind knowing that you have coverage for unforeseen events such as:

  • Trip Cancellation or Interruption due to one of the covered perils listed within the policy.
  • Baggage Loss or Delay during your trip.
  • Travel Delays that could cause you to incur additional food or accommodation expenses.
  • Unforeseen illness or injury during the trip causing you to seek medical attention, and Emergency Medical Evacuation which will get you from the facility you are in to the nearest appropriate hospital for further care.

One thing to note is that coverage on this plan is primary, meaning you don't have to submit claims through other insurance first, such as your homeowners policy for baggage loss or your own health insurance for medical claims. This can simplify the claims process as you only have to file a single claim through Travelex.

Travel Basic
A friend who had been abroad suggested travel insurance for my Canada trip. At first I thought it would be a waste of money. But after seeing the reasonable price, opted for the Travelex Travel Basic plan. Unfortunately, I had to avail myself of the insurance due to a minor medical issue. Upon my return, I sent Travelex the original medical treatment records and receipts. A few weeks later, I received a check from Travelex fully covering my costs. You can be sure that this is a company that stands behind their plans.

I had occasion to file a claim with Travelex previously, and that was the reason we chose them again for coverage. They were fast and easy to work with through the claims process.

We were reassured during our trip knowing we had medical coverage.
