About

When you purchase a plan from Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection (BHTP), you are protecting your trip with a comprehensive travel insurance plan you can depend on.

It’s hard to ignore BHTP’s commitments to the travelers who purchase their plans. BHTP communicates the way you communicate; whether that’s through social media, online chat, email, text or a phone call. BHTP is there for you, no matter the reason, in a way that best fits your busy life.

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection works hard to streamline the claims process to reimburse their travelers faster than ever. With the snap of a photo, your claim (such as a claim for a lost or stolen bag) can be launched through your mobile device.

If that claim, or any other, is approved, you’ll be waiting less time for that reimbursement – getting that money directly deposited into the account of your choice. Gone are the days of having to wait for a paper check that needs to be endorsed and deposited into your account. With Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection’s electronic payments, you can receive your money faster so you can get back to your trip.

The comprehensive benefits that are included, as well as optional coverages and upgrades available to most travelers, make the Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection plans an excellent choice for travelers. For instance, if you purchase the plan within 15 days of your initial trip payment, you’ll most likely be eligible to include:

  • pre-existing condition waiver
  • trip cancellation and interruption due to financial default
  • Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverage for common carriers

Still unsure? Every BHTP plan includes a 15-Day Free Look, meaning, you have 15 days to decide if the plan is the right plan for you and your trip.

I did not use the plan so I am not sure how good it was :) It was easy to obtain and the price was fair. I will consider again in future travels.

I became a fan of travel insurance after a friend had to be medically evacuated from Mexico during a cruise due to kidney stones.The price was right for the coverage I wanted, especially medical evacuation. You never know how good a plan is until you need to use it and I haven't had to use one yet.

I'm writing my review AFTER my claim was processed. On the plus side, it was processed quickly and submitting the claim and talking with a customer representative was a positive experience. In the end, I did receive a partial reimbursement for a my claim (about 1/3 of the total). The claim was associated with the early days of the COVID-19 outbreak when I was denied entry to my destination due to the outbreak half way to my ultimate destination. The reality is that travel insurance by design doesn't cover *unnamed* events (e.g. who knew the COVID-19 virus was going to happen and thus its impacts are not covered), so they were able deny a large fraction of my claim. This is unfortunate, but the reality of travel insurance. Why would I recommend BHTP? Because they did cover part of my expenses, which is way better than the experience of some of my traveling companions whose claims were flat out denied.
