This plan eased my mind while we were traveling, to know that in the event of unexpected problems, we would have a company to contact.

I had no unusual difficulties during the trip, apart from minor illness and annoying but minor schedule changes. No claims. Overall, satisfied.

Allianz Global Assistance Basic
Purchased this at the last minute due to a very ill relative. We didn't have to use it, but it was nice to have a back up plan. When you plan a big trip, I would always suggest purchasing travel insurance, because you never know what will happen.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. Please be cautious when purchasing a policy for a potential foreseen event. In the future, please consider contacting our customer service department when seeking coverage for a specific event. Our representatives can perform research to see if there is a policy that would cover the concern. Comprehensive policies are designed to cover trip cancellation/interruption for an unforeseen sickness, injury or death, which occurs after the effective date of the policy. If a family member is already sick, there may be no coverage. The following in an excerpt taken from the Allianz Global Assistance Basic policy, "You aren’t covered for any loss that results directly or indirectly from any of the following general exclusions.

    The following things if they affect you, a traveling companion or a family member, whether the family member is traveling with you or not: existing medical conditions"

    "Existing medical condition: An illness or injury that you, a traveling companion or family member were seeking or receiving treatment for or had symptoms of on the day you purchased your plan, or at any time in the 120 days before you purchased it."

    Also,

    "The following events: any problem or event that could have reasonably been foreseen or expected when you purchased your plan."

As with all insurances; you buy them for peace of mind and hope that you don't need to file a claim. That is what occurred in our case. I could not test the claim process and therefore, think the price paid for peace of mind was well worth it.

Allianz Global Assistance Basic
Several months ago, I purchased insurance for the first time for a beach house I rented within the US. Fortunately, I did not have to file a claim. The cost of this policy seemed reasonable and I will, most likely, use this company again.

All I can say is that this coverage provided me with a peace of mind. I knew that should something disrupt my trip, I would be protected. Luckily all went well. I would encourage anyone planning to spend time in a developing country, to consider purchasing travel insurance.

I never needed to use the coverage, since I had a successful and uneventful trip. It was a great comfort to know I would be covered should any important problem develop.
