It would be of value to have information regarding the handling of claims. This policy is excess over other health coverages and I am curious about actual claim experience and procedures that are followed. I am a former casualty claim manager and also have work experience with group medical claims.

We had no accidents or illnesses on our trip, but knowing we had protection is something happened was well worth the price of the coverage.

Thank you so much for providing coverage for me after my original plan had expired. I had no idea that I could not extend my plan once the trip had started. You made the extension of my stay worry free and for that I am very appreciative.
The person I worked with was lovely and extremely knowledgeable and helpful which was a tremendous
plus. Thank you.

In over 30 years of travel this was the 1st time we used your services. We did not have to file any claim, but it really gave us just that little added security we wanted for travelling thru europe. We certainly will use it again next year.
