It would be helpful to specify on the summary page of policy provisions that when terrorism coverage is provided in foreign locations the terrorism clause is triggered by the US Dept of State's issuance of a "Travel Warning" and to tell policy holders where such Warnings are found.

I had a minor surgery 3 months before our trip and it did not heal as planned. My doctor did not release me to travel until 5 days before the trip! I called one of your representatives about 2 weeks before the date of our trip and explained the situation. The woman I spoke with was very, very nice and told me that I could call to cancel the trip at any time and it would all be covered. Luckily, I did not have to cancel my trip and had a wonderful time. I will use your company for all of my travel insurance in the future. Thank you!

I found the preexisting condition limitations difficult to understand and didn't notice that there was customer support.

This company is as great as others until you have to file a claim. Fortunately this time, the customer service representative referred me to her manager, who understood my claim and made it right. No matter how many documents you submit, they never pay you fully till you go over many hurdles.
