Truthfully, since I didn't need to make a claim, I can't be sure of my answers.

Peace of mind comes at a cost. After having a heart attack just before a trip I have bought trip insurance almost every trip. So far so good. I have heard of the extravagant charges made to other travelers and realize that the cost of the insurance is low compared to the risk of uncontrolled costs. I have seen two evacuations from ships. One about ten miles south of the coast of India!

I did have some peace of mind knowing that I had coverage in the event something unexpected happened and my trip was interrupted. I would probably purchase this plan again for a future trip, depending on the nature and cost of the trip and the amount of money at risk. I did have to make a change in my trip itinerary due to a late change in my flight times, and customer service handled it promptly and emailed me a confirmation that it had been changed, at no further cost to me. Good customer service and prompt action.

Thank you for providing my coverage and shopping it for me. On prior trips, I had insured directly with Allianz and I like the insurance card and policy .pdf they provided. After a call to Allianz, I was able to obtain these items.

We had to cancel the trip due to medical reasons, Allianz refunded the penalty as stated in the policy. We will use them again on our next trip.

As a minister, I wondered about coverage for the contingency of my needing to fly home for a funeral or life threatening illness of a parishioner. I did not see coverage for this in the Allianz Global Assistance Basic plan info. I did not try to contact you to find out either, since it was not really a deal breaker for me, because it is pretty rare that this actually happens. Otherwise I thought the Allianz Basic policy was excellent.

    Thank you for your 4 star review of the Allianz Basic plan. This plan does not offer Cancel For Work Reasons. However, should this be a concern for future trips, please give us a call at 800-487-4722 so we can assist you.

Since we did not have to file a claim, we can't address the issue of how travel insurance pays, but we did have peace of mind knowing our trip was covered. A couple who was supposed to go on our trip had no insurance, and they had to cancel at the last minute due to illness. I would never travel without insurance if I could not take the "hit" financially. We always insure.

All went well, but it was reassuring to know the plan was in place if I needed to call upon it.
