Travelex Travel Basic

Travel Basic is good for the budget-conscious traveler who needs basic essential coverage for unforeseen events that may arise before and during your trip, such as:

  • Trip Cancellation or Interruption due to one of the covered reasons.
  • Baggage Loss or Delay during your trip.
  • Travel Delay that could cause you to incur additional expenses for meals and accommodations.
  • Emergency Medical Expenses, Medical Evacuation/Repatriation.

One thing to note is that coverage on this plan is First Payer Coverage, which means easy claims handling, less time and hassle to receive reimbursement for eligible losses from Travelex first, with no deductible. Funds may be recovered from your medical or other collectible insurance plans.

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.
