April Travel Protection Choice
Since I didn't have to file a claim, I don't know how that part would have gone, but I was satisfied with the coverage offered and the price compared to other companies.

The trip included a
AXA Assistance USA Gold
We have purchased many travel policies. I often questioned whether it was a smart decision given I could never find any claims history on the policies and we had no claim experience.. My claim to AXA proved the the purchase was the right decision. It was handled professionally, quickly and without any deference to deny the claim.

InsureandGo Global Gold
We ran into soem people in Mexico that didn't have health coverage and it cost them plenty when they got sick. I gave them your name to get insurance next year. They didn't know it was so reasonable.

Allianz Global Assistance Classic
There's not much I can say, since I didn't need to use it. It felt reassuring, though, to have it, since I was out of the country for 3 months, and in my 70's. This is the first time I've bought travel insurance.

HTH Worldwide Trip Protector Preferred
Most of the reviews here are a bit silly, considering the buyer didn't actually USE the insurance that was purchased. What they're essentially reviewing is the "peace of mind" they purchased, based on promises the various companies made to cover possible events. I would pay attention to the reviewers who actually had to file a claim first. Those are the only reviews that mean anything.
Having said that, as a former tour guide, I can tell you that trip insurance is a necessity, especially when traveling internationally. The last thing you want to worry about is covering the cost of medical expenses or emergency evacuation if you find yourself in trouble in a foreign county. Even domestic travel these days can result in unforeseen expense, at which point you'll be glad you have your own coverage. A short stay in a hospital somewhere could put a serious dent in your wallet in this country, and not necessarily be covered by your health plan at home.
Read the wording of the insurance plan you want to purchase carefully. Watch out for terms like "secondary", which indicate the coverage only kicks in after some other company acts as the "primary" insurer. Translated, that means you have to prove you weren't covered by something else first (like your personal medical insurance) before the insurance will cover the expense. To me that means paperwork, delays, and loopholes they have available to them to avoid covering an event.
In today's political climate, you'll want options if disaster or violence of some sort strikes. And, at best, lost luggage is no fun. Our luggage ended up in China once, instead of San Francisco. Took over a week to get it back. I've seen it all, and wouldn't want to travel without insurance.
As for how good this plan I chose is, I wouldn't be able to really judge because I ended up not having to test their promises. Reading through it in detail, the coverage sounded good for our needs. But the only real test is filing an actual claim. Happily, filing a claim wasn't necessary this time.

The company did follow-up immediately will all necessary information once the plan was purchased, and send reminders just before the trip began. We were pleased with all of that, and hope any claim would have been handled in a similar fashion. I've purchased several plans here over the years, and will continue to do so. To me that just makes sense for any trip, and is the equivalent of packing the proper gear in the event of rain. I don't want rain to ruin my vacation either.
Finally, make sure you understand exactly what's covered under the plan you choose, BEFORE you go. Once you're on your way, it'll be too late. And don't wait until the day of departure to buy, because then it IS too late. They don't allow same-day purchase! Happy travels.

Global Alert! Preferred Plus
I was glad to have coverage, but happier not to have needed it. This is the last of several trips I have purchased travel insurance through InsureMyTrip. This plan, which I bought for the first time seemed reasonable. I have always found the advice of InsureMyTrip agents precise, focused on our specific requests and reasonably priced. I look forward to healthy years of travel and plan to continue relying on this insurance agency to provide us with travel insurance.

Thankfully I did not have to use this insurance. That is the reason I cannot give it 5 stars.

The plan I purchased covered the items most important to me. I am greatly satisfied that I was covered properly but it is impossible to rate higher since I was lucky enough not to have to file a claim.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
One of our flights was canceled. The policy from Nationwide would not pay for the lost day of our vacation. The airline canceled the flight and we lost a nights lodging expenses. A canceled flight was not a covered interruption. I am very disappointed.
