Allianz Global Assistance Classic
Did not need it so I can't say how good the response and customer service is, but it gave me peace of mind having it in the case of an emergency

Travel Insured Trip Protector Lite Expanded
Unfortunately several personal items disappeared from Shumbulala Safari Lodge. Travel Insured acted promptly and fairly and my claim was settled.
I think I should advise Trip Advisor.

I was happy to have the plan in the event I had an accident or trip interruption. Felt that I had a reasonable plan with costs I could live with.

For what it says it covered the price was decent, but not having needed it and not filing a claim its hard to say how good the coverage and service actually would be.

American Express Global Travel Shield Classic
I'm always happy when I don't have to file a claim for insurance benefits. That said, this coverage seemed fine but I thought it was terribly expensive.

CSA Travel Protection Custom
My chief concern in purchasing this plan was to protect against the financial impact of serious illness in my elderly father, illness which might lead me to cancel the trip before it started or which might require me to return home early. I am glad to have this insurance and happy that I was able to complete the trip without interruption.

Fortunately, we did not need to use the plan, but it was easy to acquire and far more competitive in price and features than other plans. The plan had good reviews from independent reviewers, so it was an easy choice to make.

Nothing to say, really, since I did not need to use it - just as I had hoped!

John Hancock Gold
One thing that should be noted is that we chose this plan because it had car rental insurance that was not necessary as Hertz in South Africa includes an amount in the daily rental for insurance with no option to exclude their insurance. Fortunately it was not necessary but still annoying to pay double!
Winston O. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
