The most important thing, about the plan was peace of mind. Because bad things can happen. Driving in Botswana is a challenge - livestock on the roads and very aggressive drivers.

AIG Travel Guard MedEvac Per Trip Plan
My trip turned out great and I remained safe and healthy and
I thankfully did not need to use this insurance plan.
That said, being in such a remote location, the policy provided me with peace of mind knowing I could deal with any potential serious medical issues quickly and affordably.

CSA Travel Protection Custom
Many people disregard the need for travel insurance, but you never know if or when you will need it. In fact, I thought that I might need to use my coverage after suffering a burn in Botswana. I was happy to see that the out of country contact information was very clear on the paperwork, but even happier that I didn't need to use the plan!

This type of insurance seems very expensive for someone like me, who is in good health and is active physically. I now have a separate medical evacuation plan, so will be looking for a less expensive plan for delays and cancellations in the future.

Global Alert! Preferred
My reservations about GlobalAlert! are not about the actual coverage. Rather, I had issues with TripMate, the company which processes claims for Global Alert and a number of other insurers. They took an excessively long time to process my claim. I initiated the claim on 10/29/14 and was told that they would have it resolved in 15 business days. I supplied them will all requested information in a very timely fashion, as I wanted to be made whole for financial losses I had incurred. I had to call repeatedly and basically become a nuisance to make anything happen. I was told over and over again that my claim was in "expedited" status, meant to make me think that they were trying to push it through rapidly. I was finally notified on 1/8/15 that my claim was settled. This was a day after I threatened to complain to Global Alert. The foot-dragging and excuse-making on the part of TripMate was epic. This should not have been difficult or lengthy. The final information they claim they needed from the airline could have been obtained on 10/30 with a simple phone call or email. In the end, and this reflects positively on Global Alert and the coverage, I was fully compensated for my loss.
Maury M. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

Hard to evaluate since fortunately, we did not need to submit a claim. We selected this plan because it best met our needs. I think the expense may be somewhat influenced by our ages - nothing we can do about this.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. The three main factors in determining premium are: trip cost, duration of travel, and travelers ages.
