Last updated on 08/23/2023
If you're shopping for travel insurance online using a comparison website, you might be wondering which site is right for you. Sometimes InsureMyTrip is compared to Squaremouth, but how similar are these two sites really?

While we don’t want travelers to run into any issues, we do want them to feel secure in knowing our Customer Care team is available for them seven days a week. Our specialized Anytime Advocates® are in constant communication with the insurance providers and happy to help in the event you need to file a claim. This means you can rest assured that you will have our support before, during, and after your trip.
Accredited by the Better Business Bureau
InsureMyTrip is proud to be accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and has received an A+ rating.
Squaremouth is also listed on the BBB listings but is not BBB accredited.
We Won't Sell You a Plan You Don't Need
While some comparison sites return results for the plans that will make them the most money, the licensed agents at InsureMyTrip only provide recommendations that meet the customer's needs. To put it another way, InsureMyTrip won't sell you a plan you don't need – even if the “best” plan for them is “no plan at all.”
Squaremouth features several of their own comprehensive plans that often appear first when customers search for a plan. On the other hand, InsureMyTrip only shows comprehensive travel plans from our trusted providers.
While it’s true that InsureMyTrip does offer its own IMT Travel Accident Plan, this plan is used as an add-on for travelers looking to supplement gaps in accidental death and dismemberment coverage. Additionally, we will not recommend this plan over other providers' plans.
This "customer first" approach is not just some arbitrary tagline. Rather, it's a philosophy that has been part of the InsureMyTrip mission since its founding in June 2000.
