CSA Travel Protection Custom
Knowing I had the coverage was a huge comfort as I was travelling in remote and possibly hazardous areas. I'm glad I did not need to use it though.

HTH Worldwide Trip Protector Classic
I researched many plans before choosing this one, and although I was fortunate enough not to need the coverage, the peace of mind was well worth it. I'll buy it again for my next trip!

April Travel Protection Choice
I did not need the insurance, so I can not be sure I had all I might have wanted but I was willing to foot some of the bill. I was happy. If I needed help I was wondering how contact would go.

We luckily did not need our travel insurance. I found this policy to be the best price for the coverage.

RoamRight Preferred
It took Roam Right three weeks to acknowledge the filing of the claim. The claims department asked for documentation of the exchange rate which was sent within 24 hours. It then took another five weeks (plus an email inquiring about the status of the claim) before we received checks.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
We had to cancel our trip, due to serious illness. Claim was filed and serviced promptly. The customer service reps were courteous, and very helpful and the claim was paid promptly.

M.H. Ross Advantage Bridge
I didn't file a claim, so I don't know how their customer service performs. But I found the plan very expensive. Four our trip to Africa, I got a policy that covers preexisting conditions, so I needed to insure every penny. When I realized the exchange rate made our costs just inch over the amount I insured for, I was honest and called MH Ross to increase the total. Those few extra dollars cost me an extra $150 to insure! I was pretty incensed, but paid it anyway, as I didn't want to take a risk they wouldn't cover us if something happened. But that is just ridiculous. They could have made an allowance for exchange rate changes.

Since I didn't have a health problem it's a bit hard to rate things.

HCC Medical Insurance Services Atlas Multi-Trip
We did not have to use the plan, so it was not a good test, but the coverage was there if we needed it.
