AIG Travel Travel Guard Gold
I got sick and almost needed to change my flight plans. So I don't know if that change would have been covered., If it would have been, then it would have been worth it.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. You will be pleased to know that your policy states that "The Insurer will pay a benefit, up to the Maximum Limit shown on the Schedule, if an Insured cancels his/her Trip or is unable to continue on his/her Trip due to the following Unforeseen events:
    (a) Sickness, Injury or death of an Insured, Family Member, Traveling Companion, or Business Partner;
    1) Injury or Sickness of an Insured, Traveling Companion or Family Member traveling with the Insured must be so disabling as to reasonably cause a Trip to be cancelled or interrupted, or which results in medically imposed restrictions as certified by a Physician at the time of Loss preventing your continued participation in the Trip." In the event of a claim, the companies all provide a 24 emergency assistance and claim phone number.

Allianz Global Assistance Basic
A week before a planned trip to South Africa my wife had emergency surgery. Fortunately we were insured with Allianz Global Assistance since we incurred over $10,000 in non refundable charges. We provided thorough documentation with our claim and Allianz paid in full. Not one problem. It was the first trip we insured but it won't be the last. We will use Allianz for all of our trips and suggest you do too.

InsureAssist TravCan Premier
The key drivers for us were: A. the Medical Insurance being primary and B. the bag delay/theft allowances. Fortunately, we didn't have need of either of these features, but it was nice knowing that if we had an issue we were covered. One of the travelers with us had their bag delayed a day by the airlines, and it took 3 days for it to catch up with us on the Safari. Good thing the camp did laundry and others in the group lent them clothes.

Great piece of mind for the things that could go wrong. Fortunately we did not need it but others in our group needed insurance due to accidents.

Allianz Global Assistance Basic
Unfortunately, I had to be hospitalized in South Africa. Fortunately, I had my Allianz Global Assistance travel insurance. They were so helpful and paid the hospital costs. I had to pay other costs related to ER and the doctors bill up front, but they reimbursed me. I was so happy I had the policy.
