Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection (BHTP) is committed to providing travelers with trip protection that is simpler and smarter than ever before. BHTP has an innovative claim platform that lets travelers initiate a claim with a simple picture from their mobile device. And, if that claim is brought to fulfillment, Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection works to get a traveler reimbursed faster.

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 autopay system, you’ll 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.

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection is the marketing name for the travel insurance products underwritten by Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Fast mobile claims process, reimbursing approved claims faster than ever
  • Express deposits for claim reimbursement with electronic autopay
  • Service available through the communication method that is best for you

I use Insure My Trip for all of my foreign travel, NOT for trip cancellation but rather for those features that might help if an accident or illness occurred while outside of the US (medical, medical evacuation, airline ticket rescheduling penalties for changing your return to US flight, etc.) Fortunately I have never had to file a claim so I cannot comment on that process. NOTE: Each time the actual insurer, and therefore claims agency, is different because the IMT sales agent is looking for the best value for the country and coverage that I need based on what their vendors are offering at the time. So, I am reviewing only the Berkshire Hathaway offer I paid for, and my IMT sales agent, not the claims process. I am not sure what incentives are driving the IMT sales agents but they always give the impression of offering me the most affordable plan from what they tell me is a solid provider. So this review is more for that process and that my particular sale agent liked BH for the price & coverage limitations that I gave her.

I have purchased Berkshire Hathaway Travel Insurance two times now for extended trips to Europe. Both times, I have not had to use its’ coverage. Still, the piece of mind on the flights and the coverage that I got was worth it. The policy is very reasonable in price which included the medical emergency air home if needed...and the added medical coverage to cover me more than just Medicare plan at 80 % that I have for foreign trips ...it picks up some simple emergency costs if needed ... YES, I would recommend Berkshire Hathaway insurance to anyone traveling abroad...AND, may I add...They are super with pre-contact via phone...! ALSO, prior to trip, they contact you via email with policy and coverage for you to have on hard copy with phone contact number if You need them on your Trip. While I have not needed to use the Insurance on any of my trips. Thankfully...The peace of mind at a reasonable cost is appreciated Berkshire...thank you.
