The only defect with this plan is that it can't be altered once you leave the US, i.e. if during you trip you decide to make an extra excursion which adds to the sum originally insured. Is there any solution to this dilemma?

    Thank you for your inquiry. Trip Cancellation reimburses you for your prepaid out-of-pocket expenses should you cancel the trip for a covered reason so, if you do not go on the trip, you would not have the additional expense that would have been booked while you were on the trip. Likewise, if you were not feeling well while on the trip, then it is unlikely that you would book an excursion or other activity. Of course, we do agree that there are always incidents that may arise that would not be covered by any of the Comprehensive plans, so we will bring your comment to management's attention.

I happily didn't need to make a claim but was glad to have the backup just in case.

I had an accident three days before leaving for London and was unable to fly. Hopefully, I will be taking the same trip in May 2016.

It's hard to review something you didn't have to use. I am happy I didn't have to use it. It did give us peace of mind, but I hate paying more each year as we get older.

It did give me peace of mind. Would have liked it to have just covered ticket and delayed travel expenses. My own insurance covered medical world wide.

We traveled on two ships and three different airlines to visit relatives in England, Holland, and Sweden. At ages 91 and 86, we felt the coverage was well worth the money. It gave us great peace of mind.
