Would love an insurance plan that would just cover the cost of a seasonal rental, as we drive to the destination and the rental cost is the bulk of our expenses.. thank you,,, we've always been pleased with your representatives. Very friendly and informative

We had a family issue that could have possibly interfered with our trip. Having insurance allowed me to not worry that we would lose a lot of money if we weren't able to leave home.

I had a medical emergency and had to fly back home immediately. Scott with AIG did an outstanding job handling my claims. They were handled easily with the utmost professionalism and prompt reimbursement. In addition to Scott doing a great job, he added a level of compassion which I really appreciated as I was just out of the hospital. Great job!! I will definitely use AIG for my travel insurance needs again.
