Allianz Global Assistance Classic Trip Plus
I had a safe trip and didn't need to use the insurance. Knowing that Allianz will be there for me if I needed them was worth the small insurance fee.

HCC Medical Insurance Services Atlas International
I've been using HCC for years. In August I finally had an accident that required a 3-day hospital visit. I had to pay out of pocket almost $3,000 and its now 60 days after my accident and I have not been reimbursed. The company has given me no updates or time frame for this. My accident and treatment were very standard and clearly fall within the guidelines of coverage. It shouldn't take an underwriter more than an hour to see this and approve it.

I can no longer recommend HCC - they are the cheapest so I guess you get what you pay for. I will pay more in the future for a more responsive plan. As a Yoga Teacher, $3000 is a lot of money which I needed to borrow- I thought the entire point of insurance was to be covered when you have an accident....

I am frustrated that people give them such high reviews. Reviews from people who did not file claims aren't an accurate assessment of the company.

UPDATE: As of 11/29 I have not been reimbursed. I was told that my claim was closed because I did send a from that my hospital sent to them on the day of my accident.The front-line reps are very uninformed- many contradicting each other. The last guy told me it was a bad idea to pay my claim myself (I had to to get my passport back from the hospital), which was exactly the advice I received from HCC several months ago.

When an InsureMyTrip rep contacted them directly it was discovered that 2 pieces of paper were 'stuck' together and they would reopen my claim. Very unprofessional.

UPDATE Feb 2 2016

I finally received my claim check. I was reimbursed for the total amount of my claim, minus a deductible and small fee for the exchange rate.

I'm happy about this, however still unhappy about the 5 months it took to be paid. The company sent 4 checks to me that never arrived and after a number of phone calls they finally UPS'd one to me. How can 4 checks get lost in the mail?

Anyway, look elsewhere. I'm currently using IMG Global as they were very responsive to my questions about their policy, however I have not had to file a claim yet.

AIG Travel Guard Basic
Did not have to use the insurance, so the rating is not based on the fact how the insurance performs in an actual case of need.

Simply said, a great plan. Fortunately, there were no incidents requiring a claim but I felt confident we were covered if anything should occur. I especially liked the information packet which outlines coverages and who to call if you have any issues. I would not hesitate to use JH Insurance again for my next trip.

AIG Travel Guard MedEvac Per Trip Plan
This was a great option for travel insurance that only covers what I needed (medical/emergency coverage). Many other travel insurance plans lump in features that I have never needed (trip cancellation), which increases the premium. This plan is the best of both affordability as well as peace of mind.

Travel Insured Worldwide Trip Protector
My husband had to cancel at the last minute for work reasons so he was unable to join us on the trip to Thailand. We submitted the paperwork exactly as requested and it was paid promptly. No issues. I also hurt my knee while on the trip and had to go to an urgent care clinic for treatment. Again, I followed the instructions given on the forms for submitting the claim, they called to clarify one issue, and then paid with no problem. I had kept all receipts and was able to provide everything they needed to document issues so things went smoothly. Very very pleased. I have been buying travel insurance for years and never had to file a claim for medical reasons, so I was glad I purchased this again.

AXA Assistance USA Silver
We had to change some parts of our reservation and there was no way to contact the AXA customer service to alert them. If we had had a problem while on the trip perhaps you wouldn't have covered us since there was a change. You should make it easier to contact someone in the event of changes or questions.

I ended up not going. After getting the run a round about who to file a claim with for the cancellation for any reason because I was told I was one day late---then when I spoke with the agent about getting a cancellation due to medical reasons because I had 8 appointments at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, I was told i needed to get proof that I had medical reasons, the problems, and the reason that my appointments were required to take place during the time I was supposed to travel.

I have had more pleasant experiences with other companies and I will return to using other companies for my next trip.

You guys blew it!

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We appreciate your business, and are sorry to learn that you were unable to travel. We hope that you find this email informative and useful for future travel insurance inquiries.

    The number one covered reason for Trip Cancellation on the John Hancock Insurance Agency, Inc. Gold plan is an:

    "Accidental Injury, Sickness or death of You, Your Traveling Companion, Your Family Member, or Your
    Business Partner; which results in medically imposed restrictions as certified by a Physician at the time of loss preventing Your participation or continued participation in the Covered Trip. A Physician must advise cancellation of the Covered Trip on or before the Scheduled Departure Date."

    In order to receive reimbursement for your covered trip cost, you must complete and submit a Trip Cancellation claim from to the claim administrator. A section of the claim from must be completed and signed by the treating physician because the trip was cancelled due to medical reason. This is industry standard protocol. We would be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns. Our toll free phone number is 800-472-4722.

I bought this for my grandson. Fortunately he didn't have to use it, but it was great peace of mind at a reasonable price.

Travelex Travel Basic
Disaster struck immediately as our first of three connecting flights was cancelled. Had to purchase a last minute replacement with a different airline at full fare. Filed a claim with Travelex that took a little longer than I expected, but 4 months after filing the claim I received a reimbursement check for the cost of the replacement flight. Travel insurance was worth it.
