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.

HTH Worldwide Trip Protector Classic
This plan provided peace of mind while traveling in the event medical care was needed or travel interruptions occurred. It also provided coverage in the event we would have needed to cancel pre-trip for a covered reason. Fortunately we did not need to use the coverage.

Travel Insured Worldwide Trip Protector
I am very glad I purchased Travel Insured Worldwide Trip Protector plan. We took a cruise to Norway and booked our excursion ourselves. Unfortunately, there was a big bus accident near the port and the road/tunnel had to be shut down for repair. Our cruise ship was re-routed elsewhere, and we were unable to use the excursion that we paid for. Travel Insured helped us recover the loss.
I am very satisfied with your service. I will definitely buy my next trip insurance with you, although I hope I won't need to submit any claim.

M.H. Ross Advantage Asset
BEWARE! I will never purchase insurance from any company that uses Tripmate to handle their claims. After taking months to handle, they first denied my claim, and then after an appeal process, they eventually paid but shorted me. My travel partner purchased insurance through insuremytrip with another provider and I purchased through MH Ross, and I submitted all documentation to both companies. The other provider paid in full within two weeks. Seven months later, I am still dealing with Tripmate Tripmate did not have my back after years of never having to submit a claim. BUYER BEWARE!
