April Travel Protection Choice Family Plan
The price was very affordable for a family comprehensive coverage. We were glad that we didn't have to use it but it offered some sense I'd security while abroad.

TravelSafe Classic Plus
Our trip to Paris was planned for the week of Thanksgiving 2015. The Friday before we were going to fly there, the terrorist attack that killed at least 130 people happened. It was a difficult decision, but we decided not to go given the shocking nature of the attack and the still fluid situation. I called the insurance provider and they were very helpful, telling me the steps I needed to take to correctly cancel the trip. We had a cancel for any reason policy but it turned out that the policy also covered terrorism. We received a full refund of our airline tickets within 10 days of filing the claim. I have purchased insurance for most major trips and this was the first time I had to file a claim.

Did not use the plan. Have to use any current insurance coverage first. Would like to know just how much these companies pay out per dollar of premium collected. Just think the costs are unnecessarily high.

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.

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.
