It was great coverage for the money. Fortunately we did not have to use it. I can't comment on the claims and payment method since we have never had a claim.

Some of the other travel plans I researched had bells and whistle coverages I did not need and increased the price substantially. This was a good product with the exact coverage I required.

It's always nice to know that you have the coverage you need and don't have to use it.

My trip went smoothly and although I did not have to file a claim, it gave me piece of mind to know I would be covered in the event of a problem.

Never had to file a claim, thankfully. For the price of the policy, it is definitely worth the peace of mind.

I wish I could have gotten coverage for pre-existing conditions even though I could not purchase soon enough after making a deposit on my trip. But I doubt that any insurer would have offered me that coverage as it seems to be a common requirement.

    We appreciate your taking the time to comment on your purchase. In order to have purchased this plan to include coverage for preexisting medical conditions, you would have had to purchase the Essential plan within 10 days of your Initial Trip Payment. Even if you had not made all your travel purchases for the entire trip, you could still have purchased the Essential policy for those travel expenses that you had booked to date. Then, as you booked the additional accommodations, you can call InsureMyTrip to add them to the policy. We would have quoted you the additional premium, if applicable, then asked you to confirm with an email. Always remember that you can call InsureMyTrip in the future for competitive quotes and recommendations.

I am thankful I didn't need to employ the coverage, but was happy that I had it for peace off mind. I can't really say how great the coverage was. Everything I needed seemed to be included. However, I know that unless you file a claim, you don't know what kind of service you actually get. I was happy with the ease with which to purchase the coverage and what it covered.
