Although I didn't make a claim I felt comfortable having the insurance in the case if I needed it.

The trip included a
AXA Assistance USA Gold
This trip included an expensive 2 week bus trip. With all of the driving, hotel changing, walking, and the fact the trip cost was non-refundable, I wouldn't have gone without insurance. This policy was extremely comprehensive and gave me peace of mind. I'm extremely glad that we had it. Another traveler had an accident resulting in a non-displaced fracture of the fibula and she hobbled on a make-shift walking bandage for 2 weeks because she didn't have travel insurance for either proper care, return home, or reimbursement.

GeoBlue Voyager Essential
The signup process was easy. I did have one question to which I could not find an answer. When I called, the representative answered my question quickly and efficiently. Thankfully, I did not have to use the insurance overseas, but I would not leave the US without it.

AXA Assistance USA Gold
The AXA plan provided higher levels of coverage at about half the cost of the plan offered by the Cruise line. Since we did not need to use the plan we do not know how difficult it would have been to actually collect. Communication with AXA before the trip was excellent and the plan disclosures were easy to read and understand.

The trip included a
InsureAssist TravCan Premier
First, I choose a plan on the most catastrophic risk: having to be medically transported home. I called one of the companies that provides air ambulance service to ask what a typical trans-Atlantic transport would cost. Secondarily, I looked at some of the more likely losses such as reimbursement for trip delay, baggage loss and baggage delay.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Prime
I had my first return flight canceled and had booked my second flight at a separate time. I called Nationwide and they said I would be covered for the cost of any flight changes the airline couldn't resolve. Luckily, the airline payed for my changes. I could have filed for reimbursements from Nationwide because the first flight was 6 hours late, but I forgot to ask for receipts in China, and the $15 I spent in the United States didn't seem worth making a claim.

The overall insurance shopping process rates as a 5 star. The comparison of various providers made my choice fast and easy. Also, you get a review period to change your mind about the policy you've purchased.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Let me predicate this review by saying that I did not do my homework as I should have, nor did I study the plan thoroughly during the 10-day review period. I am not faulting this plan, as it is what it is, but I just wanted to let other customers know they need to look at the reimbursement figures carefully. In our case, we had a super-close airline connection between our destination city of Nagoya, Japan and Tokyo, where we needed to connect for our flight back to San Diego. There is only one flight available per day. As fate had it, an unexpected delay of our flight out of Nagoya almost made us miss the connecting flight in Tokyo, except for the fact that thankfully our Tokyo flight connection was also delayed. We saw in our policy that we were covered for a mere $150 had we missed our connecting flight. Obviously, we would have had to spend three times as much for an airport hotel and food for an overnight and wait until the next evening. It is questionable whether the airlines would have compensated us in part. Anyway, just a caveat: recreate every scenario and read your policy thoroughly.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. This review offers many friendly hints and reminders to our customers:

    1) Please call us prior to purchasing a policy to ask questions about benefit limits and covered events. We are available 7 days a week by calling 800-487-4722.

    2) Most comprehensive policies have 10-15 day review period. The review period allows customers to read and understand what the policy covers, or cancel the policy and receive a refund of premium. Service fees ranging between $5-$8 may apply.

    3) Typically, travel delay benefits have a per day limit between $100-$300. However, we do offer plans that provide coverage up to the maximum limit listed under travel delay.

    4) We offer several comprehensive plans that can cover missed connections for a flight to flight connection. Missed connection requires at least a 3 consecutive hour delay or cancellation due to a defined hazard, and can cover additional transportation expenses, reasonable accommodation and meal expenses, and reimburse the pre-paid and non-refundable unused portion of the trip. The benefit limit for missed connection varies from plan to plan, but some plans provide coverage up to $1,000 or more.
